Raikou Research event coming to Pokémon Sleep in March - free Pokémon Day Broadcast Commemorative Gift and paid Bundles now available

Raikou
Sleep Researchers will soon be getting their first opportunity to observe the sleep styles of a Legendary Pokémon, with a new event featuring Raikou announced for Pokémon Sleep during today's Pokémon Presents video presentation. This event is set to begin sometime during March.

As of writing, relatively few details have been released about how this event will function. Players will apparently collect Raikou mane samples in-game through some undisclosed means, which can then be exchanged for Raikou Incense to lure the Pokémon so players can research the sleep styles of this Legendary beast. The event is also apparently being crafted with new Sleep Researchers in mind, so even rookies just picking up the game for the first time will have an opportunity to research Raikou's sleeping styles, and potentially even befriend the Pokémon and add it to their party.

The event's announcement notes that Electric-type Pokémon will be highly useful for this event, so players are advised to ensure they can find, level, and evolve some Pokémon of these types prior to the start of the event. Electric-type Pokémon currently available in Pokémon Sleep include Pikachu, Raichu, Jolteon, Pichu, Mareep, Flaaffy, and Ampharos.
