Sleep type

Sleep types (Japanese: 睡眠タイプ Sleep type) are properties that apply to the Pokémon that can be encountered in Pokémon Sleep, as well as to the player's own sleep sessions. Sleep types determine which Pokémon will gather around the player's Snorlax in the game.


A Pokémon can have only one sleep type. There are three sleep types in the game, each corresponding to a real-world sleep stage terminology.

When a player finishes tracking a sleep session, the game will analyze the time that the player spends on each sleep stage, and will categorize the player's sleep as Dozing, Snoozing, Slumbering, or Balanced (a middle ground between the three). The category of this sleep session will then determine the species of Pokémon that would gather around the player's Snorlax (with a Balanced sleep, the Pokémon that will gather will be of a variety of sleep types).

  • The Sleep Type Quiz in the official Pokémon Sleep website categorizes Diglett as a Slumbering-type,[4] even though it is Snoozing-type in the game.


  1. Professor Neroli: "Since your sleep type was deemed to be Dozing type this time... it has caused Dozing-type Pokémon to gather. Dozing-type Pokémon tend to include Grass and Bug types."
  2. Professor Neroli: "Since your sleep type was deemed to be Snoozing type this time... it has caused Snoozing-type Pokémon to gather. Snoozing-type Pokémon tend to include Fire and Electric types."
  3. Professor Neroli: "Since your sleep type was deemed to be Slumbering type this time... it has caused Slumbering-type Pokémon to gather. Slumbering-type Pokémon tend to include Water and Ground types.
