How to use incense in Pokémon Sleep

Every time you track a sleep session in Pokémon Sleep, you’ll eventually awake to find a selection of Pokémon have gathered around your Snorlax. While you can’t exert much control over what those Pokémon might be, you can activate up to two different incense items ahead of your sleep session to either confer a special effect when you wake up or to attract a specific type of Pokémon more than others.

Standard Incenses

After completing a sleep research session, these incense items will confer a specific special effect. Each item is one use only and can be found in the General Store on sale for Diamonds or in the Sleep Point Exchanges for Sleep Points.
