Pokémon Go adds Scarlet and Violet and Pokémon Sleep

On Monday’s Pokémon Presents livestream, the megafranchise unveiled a merger between its latest main series games, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and Niantic’s Pokémon Go. Pokémon Sleep received a long-awaited update from the Pokémon Company.

In Pokémon Go, players can collect postcards from trainers worldwide to get regional versions of the butterfly Pokémon Vivillon. Pokémon Go players may now send postcards to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet on the Nintendo Switch to generate that Viillon variation. Then, in Pokémon Go, Gimmick will roam. Gimmighoul is a Pokémon that lives within a treasure box, which is also part of its body (yeah, it’s bizarre, don’t ask), but in its roaming form, it’s just a funny little grey guy with a golden coin. After 999 Gimmighoul coins, the Pokémon evolves into Gholdengo.

This connection resembles Pokémon Go and Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Eevee on the Nintendo Switch. Like Gimmighoul, Meltan can only be caught by connecting Pokémon Go to your console, which initiates a mystery box event. Melmetal, a powerful PvP Pokémon, evolves from Meltan.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will also support Pokémon Home, a subscription-based smartphone app that lets players move Pokémon between games. With that integration, players can transfer their wandering from Gimmighoul to Scarlet and Violet, making it the only method to use the Pokémon in that form.

The Pokémon: Scarlet and Violet DLC is confirmed. The first section of “The Secret Treasure of Area Zero” additional material will be released in the fall, with a second portion in the winter. We saw how horrible things can get when Pokémon employees are pressured to produce new games with problems in Scarlet and Violet, so I say take your time.

The Pokémon Company finally updated Pokémon Sleep, an app it has been promoting since 2019.

“Pokémon Sleep is meant to make you look forward to waking up in the morning,” said Pokémon Company COO Takato Utsunomiya. That’s gloomy!

On a little island, we meet a large Snorlax and Pokémon sleep researcher Professor Neroli (how do I get that job?). The game will record and analyze your sleep if you leave your phone beside your pillow, but we don’t know if it’s accurate or useful.

Your Snorlax will gather Pokémon that sleep like you (according to this sleep researcher colleague). iOS and Android will get the app this summer.

The Pokémon Go Plus+ attachment (pronounced “plus plus”) connects Pokémon Go with Pokémon Sleep. Like the Pokémon Go Plus, it spins Pokéstops and catches Pokémon. If you like Pikachu lullabies, the new device tracks sleep and sings them. This device, released on July 14, will let gamers leverage their sleep data in Pokémon Go for incentives.

Pokémon Sleep may be free or feature in-app payments. Even though Pokémon Go isn’t as popular as it was in 2016, it’s still a hit. The game earned $6 billion in June.
