There seems to be special news coming up regarding Pokémon video games, with a new title from the series announced by The Pokémon Company a few hours ago, on mobile devices, and coming out in 2020 on Android and iOS.
This is Pokémon Sleep, and to better understand the title we can read the tweet posted yesterday by the company, with a small description of what to expect “And if you could continue to train your Pokémon … even while you sleep? In 2016, Pokémon GO made the simple act of walking, pure entertainment, turning the whole world into a game. We’re going to do it again, with coaches this time, and sleep. “
On the official website, the description is a bit more complete and reads: “Soon coaches will be able to wake up with Pokémon every day, with Pokémon Sleep, a mobile app from The Pokémon Company. Pokémon Sleep intends to turn sleep into fun by doing so that the time a player spends sleeping, and the time they are awake, affects the gameplay. More details will be revealed later, but there will also be a new Nintendo device, Pokémon Go Plus +, which will connect to Pokémon Sleep and will start with the app. The device will use an integrated accelerometer to track the player’s sleep hours and send the information to the phone via Bluetooth. The device also has the same functions as the original Pokemon Go Plus, so coaches can also use it during the day with Pokémon Go and at night with Pokémon Sleep. The launch is scheduled for 2020, and to celebrate, coaches around the world will have the chance to meet sleeping Snorlaxes in Pokémon Go starting today. “
In short, soon the Pokémon will do even more part of our lives … even during sleep.
What if you could continue training your Pokémon…even in your sleep? ?
In 2016, Pokémon GO turned the simple act of walking into entertainment, making the entire world into a game. We’re about to do it again, Trainers—this time, for sleeping.
