Pokémon Sleep: Changes to Energy Recovery

With the recent update to version 1.0.9 Pokémon Sleep has made a major quality of life update to how energy works in game. Energy is an incredibly important aspect of Sleep, as it is what allows your Pokémon to gather berries and ingredients throughout the day at increased rates. Many players don’t realise how much energy can impact your team, and how having Pokémon with high energy levels will help you gain Drowsy Power for your Snorlax much more quickly.

After considering the opinions of many players, Pokémon Sleep has added a function to make Pokémon in the Pokémon Box recover some Energy. This is a huge win for the community!

Up until now, based on the game’s overall balance, only the Pokémon that were on your team when you slept would recover Energy. Based on many comments from players that it was difficult for Pokémon in the Pokémon Box to recover Energy, and that they would simply stay there at low Energy for long periods of time, the game has been changed so that all your befriended Pokémon will recover bit by bit through your daily sleep. The following will now take effect:

  •  Energy equal to 5% of your sleep score will be recovered.
  • This will be reflected after the next morning’s sleep research is finished.

For example: A Pokémon with 0 Energy on the previous day will recover 5 Energy the next morning if you got a sleep score of 100.

Pokémon on your current team will continue to recover Energy in the same way that they have until now. This new change only affects Pokémon in the Pokémon Box that are not on your current team.

In addition, this following will now impact the Pokémon in your Pokémon box:

  • If you use a Recovery Incense, Pokémon in your Pokémon Box can recover 10% of your sleep score (the usual 5% plus another 5%).
  • The above effect also applies to the second sleep session of the day. (You can have up to two Sleep session per day).
  • Adjustments to Energy recovery based on Pokémon Natures will be applied to each Pokémon individually.
