July 7 (Portaltic/EP) –
The Pokemon Company has announced the arrival at the end of this month of the video game for ‘smartphones’- iOS and Android- Pokémon Sleepin which users can capture Pokémon while they sleep, and which can already be reserved in the Play Store.
Pokémon Sleep was presented by the company that manages the rights to the franchise four years ago, when it explained that they were working on a game that would unify the user’s sleep record with the capture of Pokémon.
Now the company has informed about what Pokémon Sleep will be available to all users -except for some regions- at the end of this month of July and that, in addition, can already be reserved for android devices in Play Store.
Likewise, The Pokémon Company has shared some of the mechanics of this new video game, which is based on catch pokemon while users sleep, in relation to the time you have slept Yet the sleep quality. Thus, a Pokédex must be completed, called in this case ‘SleepDex’.
As he explains in a statement on its websiteto play Pokémon Sleep it is enough that the user place the mobile device near the pillow or on the mattress while you sleep to be able to carry out a control of the sleep cycle and record the data. However, it must be taken into account that the analysis will not work if the device is placed on a rigid surface such as a table.
Depending on the amount of sleep, more or less Pokémon can be caught. That is to say, the more the user sleeps, the higher your score upon waking up and therefore the more Pokémon you will have caught.
The sleep quality It is also relevant in the game, as it can be qualified in three categories: light, medium or deep sleep. In this sense, the Pokémon that have a sleep pattern similar to that of the user they will have more chances of being caught. For example, if the user snores one night, he will catch Pokémon that also snore.
the game too will display user sleep metrics and datasuch as audio recordings to know if any noise has been made or activity markers to know if the user is moving.
As the company has detailed, this Pokémon adventure is part of a “small island”, where the protagonist plans to carry out an investigation on how Pokémon sleep. As helpers in this research, users will feature a “huge” island-dwelling Snorlax and Professor Neroliwho will be the guide in this experience.
When Pokémon have been captured, they will appear around Snorlax and can actually appear sleeping in different positions, since each Pokémon sleeps differently. With all this, the objective of the users will be to complete the DormiDex, as well as discover all possible positions to make the pokemon fall asleep.
However, even if Pokémon are caught at night, During the day, users must feed Snorlax berries to increase his strength.. The final score is calculated by adding the users sleep score plus the strength of Snorlax. Besides, Snorlax will grow as the game develops and, with it, It will enhance the options to find new Pokémon.
