It has been on the cards since 2019 and it looks like we will finally see one of the worst ideas Nintendo have had in a while arrive soon.
Pokémon Go Sleep and the go + technology that will measure how well you did overnight..at sleeping is on the way.
After being announced almost four years ago, Pokémon Sleep is finally ready to launch this summer - a year after its original projected release date of 2020.
Developed by Select Button, the mobile game is designed to track your sleep and categorize it into one of three types: dozing, snoozing and slumbering.
Players will have the chance to unlock rare sleep styles for various Pokémon, such as droopy-eared Pikachu, who looks very cute. The game also features Snorlax and Professor Neroli, a Pokémon sleep researcher.
All you need to do is to leave your phone next to you when you go to bed and let the app analyze your sleep.
The Pokémon Company has provided an update on the Pokémon Go Plus +, a physical device that connects to both Pokémon Sleep and Pokémon Go. With Pokémon Sleep, you can press the button on the device when you go to bed and again when you wake up to track your sleep data, instead of needing to have your phone next to you. The device also features a built-in alarm and a Pikachu voice that can sing lullabies. For Pokémon Go, the disc-shaped device can be used to automatically spin PokéStops and throw Poké Balls without even needing to press a button. Eventually, there will be a way to connect your sleep data to Pokémon Go as well.
Back in 2019 I was talking about why I thought Pokémon Go Sleep was a bad idea, and my thoughts have not changed!
Here's everything I feel about how Pokemon Sleep and the Pokemon sleep + accessory will work...or not work depending on the person..
Do Sleep apps work?
The big question that I would ask, as someone who helps people to sleep better would be...Do Sleep Apps Work?
My answer would be No! So why do I say this? It's based on lots of experience and also seeing how people who use sleep apps can become obsessed with statistics which do not really tell you how well your are sleeping. The only way to really tell is to see how refreshed you feel!
There are much better ways to learn how to switch off and sleep better than being guided by an app. In fact Just having your phone with you in bed is a terrible idea anyway. You should be switching it off and even getting rid of the clock?!
What should I get rid of the clock to sleep better?
