How to Evolve Your Pokemon in Pokemon Sleep

To evolve your Pokemon in Pokemon Sleep, you must have Candy handy. Better yet, have Handy Candy, which is Pokemon Sleep’s form of Rare Candy. You also need to keep in mind that the Pokemon you want to evolve must be at a specific level before it can evolve.

Each Pokemon’s evolution level varies depending on the Pokemon itself. In addition to this and the Candy that you must have handy, Pokè evolutions require an evolution stone, the King’s Rock, the Linking Cord, and other evolution items.

Where To Find Evolution Items in Pokemon Sleep?

To get Candy in your hand—ie in Pokemon Sleep, you’ll need to visit the Regular Exchange and Premium Exchange Shops and buy it from there. The other way you can earn Handy Candy is by completing missions.

Does Snoring Loudly Help Evolve Pokemon in Pokemon Sleep?

Also, snoring should activate the accelerometer in your phone and be picked up on your Pokemon Sleep app. 

Do You Have to Be Awake to Evolve Pokemon in Pokemon Sleep?

Yes, you do need to be awake to evolve Pokemon in Pokemon Sleep. However, you also need to catch those Zs in order to get some sleep currency. No currency, no evolution, and no Handy Candy.
