I Choose Snorlax: Pokémon Go Players Clash with Pokémon Sleep in Chaotic Pursuit of Exclusive Pokémon

The world of Pokémon is no stranger to chaos, but the clash between the calming Pokémon Sleep and the charming social interaction game Pokémon Go has taken chaos to a whole new level. As ravenous players of the latter seek out an exclusive Snorlax, the boundaries between these two games have blurred into a hilarious whirlwind of mischief.

According to a report by Eurogamer, Pokémon Go players have infiltrated the realm of Pokémon Sleep and are using a clever tactic to deceive the system and unlock the coveted special reward. You see, Pokémon Sleep offers rewards to players who enjoy a restful night’s sleep, using a smartphone to track their slumber. However, the mischievous players have discovered a way to exploit the $55 Pokémon Go Plus+ accessory, which can also track sleep. By owning one of these devices, they gain the chance to catch a Snorlax wearing a nightcap in Pokémon Go.

But here’s the catch: the opportunity to catch this special Snorlax only arises after a week. Instead of patiently waiting for their chance, these resourceful players have found a way to bend the rules of Pokémon Sleep. The app requires users to log at least 90 minutes of sleep, so these clever gamers turn on the sleep sensor for the required time, faking a nap. Then, with a simple twist of time, they change their phone dates forward by 24 hours, greeting a brand new day.

With this cunning trick, players can skip through an entire week in just a few hours, effectively undermining the entire premise of Pokémon Sleep. Their determination to acquire this special Snorlax in its incredibly rare shiny form is a testament to the power of Pokémon’s allure. Who would have thought that the pursuit of a sleepy Pokémon could create such chaos?

It’s worth noting that Pokémon Sleep was initially announced way back in May 2019, but it seemingly went back to bed until The Pokémon Company re-revealed it in February 2023. In case you’re curious, you can also check out GameTopic’s bizarre preview of the game based on an equally bizarre press event. Trust me, it’s a wild ride.

In the end, while Pokémon Sleep and Pokémon Go may have clashed, the undeniable passion and creativity of players continue to shape the Pokémon world in unexpected ways. So, whether you’re catching Pokémon in your dreams or exploring the real world with Pokémon Go, remember to enjoy the journey, have a good laugh, and embrace the chaos.
