Sleep style

Sleep styles (Japanese: 寝顔 Sleeping face) are properties of Pokémon in Pokémon Sleep.

A Sleep Style Dex entry for Rattata
The Sleep Style Dex icon

Summary

While each Pokémon has only one sleep type, they have multiple sleep styles. Sleep styles are recorded in the Sleep Style Dex (Japanese: 寝顔図鑑 Sleeping face Illustrated Encylopedia). Sleep styles are ranked from one star (★) to four stars (★★★★), with each star indicating an increase in rarity. Having a higher rating for Snorlax allows the player to find rarer sleep styles. Most Pokémon have three or four sleep styles, while the holiday costume Pikachu have two styles. Currently, only one Pokémon, Ditto, has more than four styles, with 10.[note 1]

Sleep styles may be thought of as similar to sleeping positions in humans.

★★ ★★★ ★★★★

#0001   Bulbasaur Grass Dozing It sits still and basks in sunny spots, possibly taking a nap. Perhaps it's trying to absorb nutrients from the seed on its back in order to grow up big, even while sleeping.

Atop-Belly Sleep

#0003   Venusaur Grass Dozing This Pokémon emits a pleasant fragrance from the flower on its back as it sleeps. You may sometimes see a Venusaur that's forgotten to retract its long vines before dozing off—perhaps this means it's especially relaxed.  
Sunbathing Sleep
 
Sturdy Sleep
 
Vines-Out Sleep
 
Atop-Belly Sleep

#0004   Charmander Fire Snoozing When it curls up to sleep, it's thought to be drawing warmth from the flame on its tail. On quiet nights, it feels like you can almost hear the sound of the flame burning if you listen hard enough.

Atop-Belly Sleep

#0006   Charizard Fire Snoozing It's been seen looking amazingly relaxed as it nods off, perhaps because it's so confident in its might. The Charizard that you occasionally see sleeping flat on their backs may be particularly strong.

Overturned Sleep
 
Atop-Belly Sleep

#0008   Wartortle Water Slumbering It remains wary of threats as it sleeps with its body tucked into its shell. But even then, its long, furry tail pokes out a bit. Perhaps it's using the fur on its tail to feel out its surroundings.

Unsheltered Sleep
 
Flattened Sleep
 
Atop-Belly Sleep

#0009   Blastoise Water Slumbering This Pokémon normally sleeps soundly, protected by its tough shell, but it's also been seen sleeping with its belly exposed on very rare occasions. Perhaps this happens when Blastoise feels completely secure in its surroundings and falls fast asleep.

Gnawing Sleep
 
Atop-Belly Sleep

#0020   Raticate Normal Snoozing Its sturdy fangs grow steadily, so it grinds its teeth even in its sleep to keep them trimmed. But this may not always be enough—Raticate apparently also gnaws on trees in its sleep sometimes.  
Teeth-Grinding Sleep

Gnawing Sleep
 
Atop-Belly Sleep
