While a good game can be so hyper-engaging that it's impossible to stop and hit the hay, a new creation by the Pokémon franchise aims to do the opposite: help players sleep better.
Basically, people play Pokémon Sleep by catching some z's. In the single-player game, "your adventure takes place on a small island where you'll carry out research on how Pokémon sleep. You'll work with large Snorlax who live on the island and Neroli, a professor who's studying Pokémon sleep styles."
The game works with Pokémon Go Plus+, a small, Bluetooth-enabled device that connects to a user's phone and feeds data into Pokémon Sleep. When they go to bed, users push the device's central button and place it near their pillow. When it's time to wake up, they'll get a friendly prompt from Pikachu to rise and shine.
Pokémon Sleep was first announced in 2019. Last week, on Pokémon Day, the brand shared that Sleep is finally set to launch in summer 2023 on iOS and Android.
