Introducing Pokémon Sleep which is a mobile app that is slated for release this year. It is likely you are a no stranger to the world of Pokémon after the success of Pokémon Go that took over the world by storm.

Pokémon Sleep is under development by the Pokémon Company that will let you create your own collection of pocket monsters that will influence your sleep. The company wants to turn your sleep into entertainment while you lull in peace.

While there isn’t too much information about this brand new sleep tracking app and exactly how we will be able to experience it. However, you can read the details below that we know about the new upcoming mobile app that is coming out in 2020.

What is Pokémon Sleep?

Pokemon Sleep Tracking App

Pokémon Sleep is a brand new mobile app that is developed by Select Button and works closely with Niantic who are the creators of Pokémon Go. While Pokémon Sleep isn’t referred as a game, we have taken the purpose of this new mobile app as a sleep tracking app than a full-blown game.

The mobile app is rather interesting which states that, “Pokémon Sleep aims to turn sleeping into entertainment by having a player’s time spent sleeping, and the time they wake up, effect the gameplay.”

Other than that, details isn’t widely known at this current stage. The Pokémon Company said they plan to reveal more details at a much later date. Based on the official app description, it will track your sleep and give you a score depending on the duration and your sleep schedule.

Whether you will be punished or rewarded based on your sleep score is still yet to be known. This mobile app will be able to track your sleeping pattern via using bluetooth feature on your smartphone. As of now, it is unknown whether you will need to use your device in order to enable app tracking or not.

But we don’t think it is the case. If there is updates regarding to sleep tracking feature. We will make sure to keep you updated.

When is Pokémon Sleep Coming Out?

Pokémon Sleep is currently due for release this year. The Pokémon Company is still working on delivering an exact release date. It is likely we will have to wait at least 6 months before its announcement until we are allowed to try this new mobile app.

Which means we might hear an announcement very soon sometimes during spring 2020 between March to May. Regarding using your money for this mobile app is unknown at this moment. Pokémon Go is free for use with micro transactions to support server costs and staffing.

So it is something that the company could go for a similar idea for Pokémon Sleep. As for the platform, it is very likely it will be available on iOS and Android devices. Just like the Pokémon Go when it first made the debut in 2016.
