As Polygon reports, The Pokemon Company just announced the in-development Pokemon Sleep, which takes the form of an app, but will be complimented by a new device Nintendo is developing called the Pokemon Go Plus +.
By far the strangest announcement of the press conference, Pokemon Sleep is a new app that tracks your time sleeping and... rewards you for getting a good night's sleep? Trainers can look forward to Pokemon Sleep launching for mobile devices in 2020.
The app was unveiled at a Pokemon press conference on Tuesday along with a handful of other games and products.
Pokemon Sleep will use data points like how long the user slept and when they awoke, to change gameplay - though the Pokemon Company did not elaborate on how gameplay would change. The peripheral will help track your sleep and monitor sleep patterns. This will likely be the best chances GO players are ever going to have to catch this Normal-type Pokemon, as they seem to appear as frequently as Rattata. With Pokemon Home, that same concept is applied on a much larger scale. It'll also be compatible with the Pokemon Switch titles - Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee and Pokemon Sword and Shield - along with Pokemon GO.
Iran 'almost certainly' behind ship attacks off UAE, says Bolton

The augmented reality smartphone game, which sees users tracking down Pokemon in the real world, became a worldwide phenomenon after its release in 2016.
The company also announced Pokémon Home, a cloud service that will allow players to put all their monsters in one place.
To be clear, Pokemon Bank isn't going away, it's just not making the jump to Nintendo Switch.
