Skill (Sleep)

Skills (Japanese: スキル skills) are one of the defining characteristics of Pokémon in Pokémon Sleep. There are two types of skills, Main Skills, which are unique to each Pokémon species, and Sub Skills, which are unique to each individual Pokémon.

Main Skills

Main Skills (Japanese: メインスキル main skills) are abilities that can be triggered whenever help is collected from a helper Pokémon. All Pokémon of the same species will always have the same Main Skill. Additionally, excluding branched evolutions, all Pokémon in the same evolutionary family always have the same Main Skill.

Skills is one of the three possible Specialties a Pokémon species can have. Each Pokémon species has a different main skill chance, though the chance will always be much higher for Skill Specialists. The main skill chance for a Pokémon can be increased by having a Nature that increases main skill chance, or by having the Sub Skills Skill Trigger S or Skill Trigger M.

Main Skills can be leveled up, up to level 6, with main skills of higher levels having more potent effects. All Pokémon start with a main skill level of 1 when they are befriended, which can be leveled up in one of three ways:

  • A Pokémon's main skill will level up by 1 when it is evolved.
  • The Sub Skills Skill Level Up S and Skill Level Up M will increase a Pokémon's main skill level by 1 or 2 respectively.
  • Using a Main Skill Seed on a Pokémon will increase its main skill level by 1.
