When you sneak up on unsuspecting Pokémon, catching them becomes a breeze.

Unlike other behaviors that Pokemon exhibit in Pokemon Legends Arceus, falling asleep is completely random.

Fortunately, there is a way that trainers can easily manipulate this pattern of behavior. Use these steps for the best chance of finding sleeping Pokemon:

  1. Travel to the region where the Pokemon you want to find is located.
  2. In every camp rest in the tentpreferably ‘Until noon’.
  3. Travel to the location of the respective Pokémon until nightfall in the game.

You’ll want some in-game time to pass while you’re looking for sleeping Pokemon, as that way they have a higher chance of sleeping in their spawn area.
