The Pokémon Company International has announced that Pokémon Sleep has been downloaded more than 10 million times. The total includes all worldwide downloads since launching in late July 2023 for iOS and Android devices. To celebrate the achievement, a new Pokémon Sleep event will be held this week. That’s right, a sleeping event. I’m not sure you’ll be able to contain your excitement with this one.

Before diving into the event itself, players are also going to be rewarding with in-game gifts. From now until 22nd September, 2023, players will be able to collect a Good Camp Ticket. This special item that lets you borrow a Good Camp Set for seven days to aid your research.​ The Ten Million Download Commemorative Gift will be available for all users, and contains the following:

  • Sleep Points ×1,000
  • Good Camp Ticket ×1​
  • Poké Biscuits ×5
  • Ingredient Ticket S ×3

If you log in during the distribution period, you can accept your gifts by selecting Main Menu from the home screen, then tapping on the gift box in the upper right of the menu screen. Gifts sent to the gift box must be claimed within the next 90 days. After 90 days have passed, the gifts will be automatically erased.

Pokémon Sleep Good Sleep Day Event

So, what’s this event all about? The ‘Good Sleep Day’ event will be held in-game from Wednesday, 30th August, until Friday, 1st September, 2023. During this time, Drowsy Power will be multiplied by 1.5 during the event, except on the day of the full moon (Thursday, 31st August), when Drowsy Power will be doubled. Users may be able to draw in more Pokémon or see rarer sleep styles the greater this Drowsy Power grows.​

This event won’t be limited to a once-off, however. The Good Sleep Day event will be held once a month for a total of three days. On the day of the full moon and the days before and after it. So you’d better start researching that lunar calendar.
