Pokémon is developing, Pokémon is growing ! At a press conference in Tokyo , The Pokémon Company showed a range of new games, services and hardware that are coming over the next year or so.
Pokemon Home will be a new cloud-based service which let users store and share their Pokemon across platforms, having some social functionality. But what about Pokemon Sleep ? Out in 2020, this is a new mobile game. „Pokémon Sleep aims to turn sleeping into entertainment by having a player’s time spent sleeping, and the time they wake up, effect the gameplay. (...) It was announced that a new device from Nintendo, Pokémon GO Plus +, will connect to Pokémon Sleep and launch with the app. The device will use an embedded accelerometer to track a user’s time sleeping and send this information to their smartphone via Bluetooth.” (More will be revealed later).
It is known however that the new hardware will also be used by Pokemon Go, and is called the Pokemon Go Plus +. Pokemon Masters is another mobile game featuring a collection of the series’ trainers. To make that vision a reality, it teamed up with DeNA, the mobile game developer behind Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes. Pokémon Masters is set to launch for both Android and iOS devices sometime this year.
