Pokemon Sleep was the perfect description to this conference...They really captured the essence of that "game"/app well. Total waste of 30 minutes.

If you knew it was a stage demo of the app all along.

A wild Nintendo QOL device appears! Also Pokemon Masters is screaming gatcha and we all already know how this game is gonna go

I knew that Detective Pikachu would get something on the Switch. Also that Pokemon Masters game looks incredibly promising

My heart is pounding with joy! Now I’ll be excited until E3!

Pokemon Sleep: More dumb than not being able to play with friends online in Super Mario Maker 2

Eh at least it's more interesting the Pokemon Channel

My guess is that Pokémon Masters is gonna be either an attempt at the MMO Pokémon or Pokémon's take on Fire Emblem Heroes.

Pokémon Let’s Go Home Master & Sleep (Together with Detective Pikachu) 2

The next XXX parody

I'm sad that Pokemon Shirts is actually for US only, not North America. Japan keeps forgetting that North America is more than one country.

A device for minors that tracks your sleep and sends it to the mother ship... This is a privacy nightmare.
