In 2016, Pokémon made us all want to walk through the interactive game Pokémon GO. Walking, even under the midday heat, became fun. And just like that, our in-phone pedometer counted 10,000 steps easily. Now, Pokémon is developing another avenue that aims to uplift users’ well-being.
We’re pleased to announce the development of Pokémon Sleep, a new app from @Pokemon_cojp that tracks a user’s time sleeping and brings a gameplay experience unlike any other!

Earlier today, Pokémon announced the development of a new app called Pokémon Sleep. The app, which will be released in 2020, wants Pokémon fans to sleep better. If Pokémon Go requires you to move to find a Pokémon, this upcoming app tracks the user’s sleep time to provide a unique gaming experience.
There’s nothing clear yet on how a user’s sleep pattern can affect the gameplay. But one thing’s for sure: We’re excited to say goodbye to sleep deprivation and we’re ready to snore like Snorlax. Btw, Pokémon GO users, here’s another good news: To celebrate the announcement of this Pokémon Sleep, Snorlax, a rare Pokémon, will also appear more frequently on the app.
