Pokémon Sleep: Update Version 1.0.15

Maintenance is complete for the new Pokémon Sleep update, version 1.0.15! It brings a whole host of incredible quality of life updates that are really exciting, let’s take a look at the new updates and features.

New Features general icon

  • Adjustments to make it easier to pick up Berries and ingredients by flicking. Notes: The tap and flick response area has been increased, and this area can be changed based on the camera zoom status. Adjustments have been made to Swalot and other large Pokémon whose Berries had been hidden. This is a great update, some Pokémon are SO frustrating to collect Berries from because they are hidden underneath the Pokémon.
  • The friend list in the Research Community has been changed to show friends in order of the most recent to send research reports. Another fantastic update, you no longer have to open up the postcards from your friends in order to figure out who is or isn’t active!
  • The max capacity that the bag’s items pocket can be enlarged to has been changed from 500 to 600.
  • The max capacity that the bag’s ingredients pocket can be enlarged to has been changed from 500 to 600.
  • Play will now be temporarily suspended when the device’s time settings are repeatedly changed. Presumably this means some researchers have been adjusting their device’s time settings in order to cheat (which is wild for a game based around sleeping!) and this will prevent that.
  • On the Map screen, the numbers of Pokémon whose sleep styles haven’t been seen yet will be replaced with “???”
  • A notification has been added to inform users that they don’t have enough storage space if the device has less than 100 MB of storage space left.
  • The max number of research reports that can be received through the research community has been changed to 50 per day. This means that those using both sleeps per day will now only send out research reports for their first sleep of the day, and therefore only the one Pokémon per day.
  • Adjustments to a case that caused sleep consistency grades to become considerably worse. Note: Changes were made so that, when a user tracks sleep twice in one day but the longer sleep session tracking fails, the shorter sleep session’s tracking will not be included in the sleep consistency grade.

  • Number of candies received when sending certain Pokémon to the professor increased. Example: Ivysaur candies increased from 5 to 7. Venusaur candies increased from 5 to 10. Such a good update and much fairer! Evolutions always felt bad to transfer because you got the same amount of candies for them as the first in the family line, now it is more worthwhile to transfer bad evolutions.
  • Effectiveness of main skill Dream Shard Magnet S increased. Example: At level 1, from 88 to 240. At level 6, from 568 to 1,260. Just in time for the Double Dream Shard Holiday event, when Dream Shards will be very important!
  • Effectiveness of main skill Extra Helpful S increased. Example: At level 1, from 4 to 5. At level 6, from 9 to 10.
  • Adjustments so that when a Pokémon with a main skill specialty hasn’t had its main skill triggered after a certain number of times, it will become easier for the main skill to be triggered.
  • The third “Get Snorlax to a certain rating” mission (the mission that has a reward of Pokémon incense) in the weekly missions was made easier to complete. In the more difficult research islands this can be so tricky, so it’s good to see it adjusted to be easier!
