Pokemon Go Catching Some Z’s Nightcap Snorlax Special Research Storyline

Trainers, the next event in Pokemon Go starts this Saturday, and you have a chance to encounter Nightcap Snorlax via Special Research.

Niantic and Pokemon Go celebrate the launch of the Pokemon Go Plus + device with a special in-game event Catching Some Z’s. Pokemon Go players can encounter two new Pokemon in this event, Komala, and Snorlax wearing a nightcap. What’s even more interesting is that Nightcap Snorlax can be shiny. Unfortunately, Komala’s shiny form is not available in the game yet.

Komala will be available in the wild, but getting Nightcap Snorlax is not going to be that easy. As a reminder, Nightcap Snorlax can only be encountered via Special Research. First, you need to get the new Pokemon Go Plus + device, then pair it with Pokemon Go.

Catching Some Z’s Special Research has two steps. The tasks will be revealed when the event goes live on Saturday, July 15, 2023, at 10 AM local time.

Catching Some Z’s Special Research Storyline

Zzz… Bwuh?

Oh! Sorry about that, %PLAYERNAME%.

I’m *yawn* running on very little sleep. Candela gave me some of the coffee beans she’s been raving about, so I did the neighborly thing and gave ’em a whirl.

The coffee was delicious, but WAY stronger than I’m used to. It kept me wide awake into the wee hours of the night.

Getting a good amount of sleep is essential if you want to keep your brain sharp. Speaking personally, exhaustion tends to steer me toward more…outlandish theories.

Hm? You want to hear one? Well…all right. But let’s keep it between us, OK?

Somewhere on my desk there’s an early draft of a paper called “The Aerodynamics of Various Hats as Worn by Pikachu.” It’s very well researched, I assure you!

But that’s enough about me. Do you have any theories of your own you’d like to explore?

Why don’t you sleep on it and get back to me?

Ah—hello, %PLAYERNAME%!

Candela’s extra-strength coffee is finally out of my system, so I’m back to snoozing like a Snorlax—and thinking up more promising ideas for papers.

“The Effects of Elevation on Snorlax Snoring Patterns” is going to be a hit, I just know it!

How about you, %PLAYERNAME%? Feeling refreshed, I hope?

I’m sure whatever you’ve thought up over the last few days is more than worthy of research!

Now get out there and seize the day—and remember to get a good night’s sleep!”

The Pokemon Go Catching Some Z’s event ends on July 16, 2023. The Pokemon Go Plus + Special Research will continue to be available and can be claimed after the event ends.
