Pokémon Sleep: Entei, Vulpix & Ninetales Debut, and More!

Sleep researchers, a huge array of news has dropped for Pokémon Sleep, including the arrival of Vulpix and Ninetales, the announcement that Entei will debut in May, and so much more!

Entei Debut Pokemon Encounter icon

Beginning in late May, 2024, Pokémon Sleep will be holding an event—Entei Research!

You can exchange samples of Entei mane that you collect during the event for Entei Incense, which you can use to research Entei’s various sleep styles!

Fire-type helper Pokémon will be particularly effective during this event, so we recommend raising your Fire-type helper Pokémon to get ready!

Fire-type helper Pokémon include:

  • Charmander
  • Charmeleon
  • Charizard
  • Growlithe
  • Arcanine
  • Flareon
  • Cyndaquil
  • Quilava
  • Typhlosion

As discussed below, Vulpix and Ninetales will also debut in May as fire types!

The game will also be updated with some functions and rewards that will allow everyone—even Pokémon Sleep beginners—to research Entei’s sleep styles and befriend it more easily.

More details and the event’s start date are coming in a later update.

Note: Vulpix Incense can be used starting from the date and time above.
