Pokémon Sleep was introduced a few weeks ago to help us sleep, feel rewarded, and most importantly, catch Pokémon. Using either your smartphone or the Pokémon Go Plus+, you can spend the night counting Mareeps and dreaming about the amazing pocket monsters. Being a very specific game, the vast majority of users discover the game and its secrets almost at the same pace, but some have already stumbled upon some details that make it similar to the main titles.
Shiny Pokémon in Pokémon Sleep?
As in the main line of Pokémon games, Shiny Pokémon appear, which are versions with a different color than the original. While there are techniques in the games to assure some of these Pokémon, this game is still much more about luck, with Shiny Pokémon appearing as early as the second night.
The Green Snorlax is a Shiny Snorlax?
At this point, you might be wondering if Snorlax can be shiny in Pokémon Sleep. Something that some users have encountered while playing the game is that they have come across a green Snorlax. This seems to have confused fans who have encountered something that looks like Shiny to the naked eye but is just a different color than the established one. It should be noted that the hue of the Snorlax Shiny is dark blue in its skin. This different hue may be due to the fact that we reach the second research site, Cyan Beach, after discovering a total of 20 Sleep Styles on the first map, Greengrass Isle.
In a nutshell, this Green Snorlax in Pokémon Sleep is not considered a Shiny Pokémon, although there is a possibility of obtaining one. However, is important to remember that the Shiny Snorlax is not permanent as these Pokémon are used for their Drowsy Power per week to attract sleeping Pokémon.
