Pokémon Sleep: Raikou Research, a Free Gift and More for Pokémon Day

Pokémon Day has brought with it a host of new updates for Pokémon Sleep, including the introduction of the first Legendary Pokémon, Raikou, a free gift, and more!

Raikou Research Pokemon Encounter icon

Beginning at the end of March, 2024, a new event will be held in Pokémon Sleep, Raikou Research!

You will aim to collect samples of Raikou mane, that you will be able to exchange for Raikou Incense, which you can use to research Raikou’s various sleep styles!

Electric-type helper Pokémon will be particularly effective during this event, so it will be worthwhile ensuring your Electric-type helper Pokémon are ready to help!

Electric-type helper Pokémon include Pikachu, Raichu, Jolteon, Pichu, Mareep, Flaaffy and Ampharos.

There also also preparations being made for some functions and rewards that will allow Pokémon Sleep beginners to research Raikou’s sleeping styles and befriend it.

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

It has also been teased that Suicune and Entei will be coming later in the year.
