A few hours ago, at a press conference in Tokyo, The Pokemon Companytook the stage and showed a series of new games, services and hardware that will be launched during the next year.
First, there is Pokemon Home , a cloud-based service where almost all new and large Pokémon games, from Pokemon Go to the next Sword and Shield , will allow you to store and share your Pokémon on all platforms. It will also have some social functionality.
Then there’s Pokemon Sleep , a new mobile game from the developers behind M agikarp Jump . It will be released in 2020, and here is the official description, just so you know that this is something real and I’m not making it up:
Soon, coaches will be able to wake up with Pokémon every morning with Pokémon Sleep, a mobile application from The Pokémon Company. Pokémon Sleep aims to turn the dream into entertainment by marking the time a player spends sleeping and when they wake up, thus affecting the game. While more details about the functionality of the application will be revealed at a later date, it was announced that a new Nintendo device, Pokémon GO Plus +, will connect to Pokémon Sleep and launch with the application. The device will use a built-in accelerometer to track the user’s idle time and send this information to their phone via Bluetooth. This new device also has the same functions as the original Pokémon GO Plus, so the coaches can use it with Pokémon GO during the day and with Pokémon Sleep at night. Coaches can expect the release of Pokémon Sleep for mobile devices in 2020. To celebrate this first Pokémon Sleep ad, coaches from around the world will have the opportunity to find Snorlax who is lying and deep asleep in Pokémon GO starting today. same.
That new hardware will also be used by Pokemon Go , and it’s called Pokemon Go Plus + . It works by placing it in your bed, where you can track your sleep and send the data to your phone, with Niantic and Nintendo working to implement the rest in the game.
Finally, Pokemon Masters is another mobile game that features a collection of coaches from the series (and their main Pokémon), with a type of gameplay that seems to be centered on 3-on-3 battles. It will be released later this year.
