Why Drowsy Power matters in 'Pokémon Sleep.'

Snorlax’s Drowsy Power determines how many sleeping Pokémon are drawn to your camp after each Sleep Session. The higher your Drowsy Power, the more Pokémon you’ll encounter.

The easiest way to increase Drowsy Power is by getting a good night’s sleep — but if you struggle with that, Good Sleep Day is going to be extra enticing.

While it’s still unknown how much of a Drowsy Power boost you’ll receive from Good Sleep Day, it’s likely to be a significant amount. As one of the first events for Pokémon Sleep, The Pokémon Company will want to put its best foot forward and give users a reason to get excited about this relaxing, slow-paced game.
