Pokemon Sleep finally launches globally

Announced all the way back in 2019, Pokemon Sleep is a hybrid sleep tracking app which rewards players with different Pokemon and items based on the quality of sleep achieved each night. Following years of silence, the game was re-revealed earlier this year with a Summer release window. Now, finally the game is available to all.

Making the announcement via a press release, The Pokemon Company revealed that “Pokémon Sleep, the sleep tracker app that turns sleep into entertainment, is now available to download in Europe on mobile devices.”

For the uninitiated, Pokemon Sleep works as follows: “players place their smartphone device or Pokémon GO Plus + by their pillow and go to sleep. When they wake up, they can check the results of the sleep tracking, study the sleep styles of the Pokémon that have appeared, and work together with Pokémon sleep researcher Professor Neroli to record them in the Sleep Style Dex.”

Later this week on Friday the 21st of July, the Pokemon GO Plus + will also be made available in Europe, allowing players to “earn various in-game bonuses, including a nightcap-wearing Pikachu that players can meet in Pokémon Sleep, or take on Special Research and earn an encounter with Snorlax wearing a nightcap within Pokémon GO.”

For some, gamifying your life can be highly useful, and for Pokemon fans especially this app could help facilitate greater sleeping habits. It will be interesting to see how Pokemon Sleep is received.
