The Pokémon Sleep app is the sequel to the cult-favorite Pokémon GO. The predecessor was released three years ago and it caused a strong stir within the community as young and old were walking around trying to catch Pokémons. Indeed, the application indirectly motivated people to be active outside. Now, the creators — Niantic and the Pokémon Company, have announced that they will be following up with another mobile game.
The Pokémon Sleep app is developed in collaboration between Niantic and Nintendo. The details for the application have not yet been released, however, as inferred from the name, players will be able to unlock Pokémons through clocking in sleeping hours. As the digital environment is fast-paced and stress-inducing, a cult-favorite game that promotes more sleep might actually be quite beneficial.
