Pokémon Sleep: Entei Research

Entei makes their debut in Pokémon Sleep, via a special two week long event!

Increased volcanic activity has been reported around a part of Greengrass Isle! Follow-up research in the area around the volcano revealed bits of Entei Mane that Entei left behind.

According to Professor Neroli, he’ll be able to conduct research into Entei’s sleep habits if you collect lots of Entei Mane samples during your sleep research. You can trade these Entei Mane samples via the Event Exchange for new items—Entei Incense and Entei Biscuits—to help you see Entei’s sleep styles!

Entei Mane Event icon

You can exchange samples of Entei Mane for other items at the Event Exchange. You can check to see how many samples you have at the Event Exchange (the samples won’t go into your bag’s items pocket).

After the event ends, you can still trade samples of Entei Mane until the Event Exchange closes. Once the exchange period ends, any remaining samples of Entei Mane will be lost.

We plan to increase the number of mane samples you can get as compared to the earlier Raikou Research event and also adjust the Event Exchange’s item lineup.

How to Get Samples of Entei Mane:

  • Sleep Research on Greengrass Isle. This is the main way to get Entei Mane samples. You can get them during one sleep research session per day. Note: You cannot get any during the second sleep research of the day. The number Entei Mane samples you can get depends on the species of Pokémon and the sleep styles you find them in. Fire-type Pokémon that you research will give you a greater number of samples of Entei Mane.
  • Limited-Time Missions. You can get samples of Entei Mane by completing limited-time missions.
  • Entei Research Bundles Vol. 1 and Entei Last Chance Bundles Vol. 1.
  • Research Community. In rare cases, you can get samples of Entei Mane from other researchers in your research community who are participating in the same event. The higher your closeness with a researcher, the more likely you are to receive samples of Entei Mane from them through the research community.
  • The following Limited-Time Special Gift will be distributed only to those who do not have the Research Community button on their Main Menu: Note: Researchers who do have the Research Community button on their Main Menu are not eligible for this gift. Limited-Time Special Gift: You will receive 70 samples of Entei Mane in your Gift Box at the beginning of the first week () and again at the beginning of the second week ()! Notes: This applies to players who logged in before . If your gift has not yet arrived, please restart the app, then check your Gift Box.
