Fire Type Week Details Event icon

The Fire Type Week event lasts from 4:00 a.m. on Monday, May 6, to 3:59 a.m. on Monday, May 13 in all areas!

If you’d like to prepare for the Entei Research event—during which Fire-type Pokémon will be particularly helpful—we encourage you to befriend lots of Fire-type Pokémon!

During this event, you’ll be able to meet Pokémon of various sleep types regardless of your own. In particular, Fire-type Pokémon will be more likely to appear.

Also during this event, you’ll be able to use the Mini Candy Boost function, which doubles the effect of Pokémon Candies. It’s a great opportunity to raise your Fire-type Pokémon!

In addition, one of the Pokémon that visits during sleep research will for sure arrive hungry!

Note: This applies to only one sleep session per day. This effect applies separately from the hungry effects of Friend Incense and Good Camp Tickets. Example: If you use a Good Camp Ticket and Friend Incense together during the event, at least three Pokémon that appear during sleep research will for sure be hungry.

On top of all that, you can get great rewards—like Vulpix Incense—through limited-time missions during the event.

Bonuses for all days of the event (5/6 to 5/12)

  • During sleep research, one Pokémon will for sure be hungry.
  • A few Pokémon of different sleep types will appear during sleep research regardless of the researcher’s sleep type for that day.
  • Certain Pokémon will be more likely to appear during sleep research.

Vulpix and Ninetales Debut

Vulpix and Ninetales have been spotted near certain areas—maybe this is thanks to the sleep research you’ve all been conducting! It may be possible to encounter them during sleep research soon.

They will appear beginning May 6, 2024, at 3:00 p.m.

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

They will appear at Greengrass Isle and Taupe Hollow.

Their Sleep Types will be as follows:

  • Vulpix: Snoozing
  • Ninetales: Snoozing

They have the Fire Leppa Berry as their berry, and can collect Greengrass Soybeans, Greengrass Corn and Soft Potato as their ingredients.

Their Main Skill is Energizing Cheer S, which restores 14 Energy to another Pokémon chosen at random.

What is Mini Candy Boost? Candy icon

Mini Candy Boost uses fewer Dream Shards than the Candy Boost function that appeared before, so it can be easily used even by researchers who are just beginning to play Pokémon Sleep.

Using Mini Candy Boost lets your helper Pokémon get twice the usual amount of EXP from candies in exchange for using four times the usual amount of Dream Shards per candy. This function can be used with up to 50 candies per day.

This function will be set to ON by default. You can freely toggle this function ON or OFF by tapping the button in the upper right of the Level Up screen.

Feel free to use Mini Candy Boost when you want to level up your helper Pokémon!

Fire Type Week Shop icon

Fire Type Week Bundles Vol. 1 (S, M, and L) will be available beginning 2024/05/06 07:00!

We’ve prepared some bundles of items—such as Cyndaquil Incense, Charmander Incense, and Vulpix Incense—that can help you befriend Fire-type Pokémon. You can use this incense during the event in the various areas where these Pokémon appear to encounter Fire-type Pokémon!

Bundle M includes Eevee Incense and a Fire Stone—which can help researchers who want to befriend Flareon!

Also, Bundle L includes Vulpix Incense. We recommend it for researchers who want to befriend the newly appearing Vulpix!

You can set up your incense on the stump by your tent or through the pop-up that appears when you tap the Sleep button.
