Forget Pokémon Sleep, here are 7 more Pokémon lifestyle apps we absolutely need
Unfortunately, something like this is probably the most realistic option for another Pokémon-themed lifestyle app. Shamelessly nonsensical like the best of them.
Just the weather. This is it. Only this time, cute pictures of the weather-themed day appear on the lock screen to inform the day’s forecast (Pikachu in thunder, Altaria in clouds, Solrock in sunshine – you get the idea).
Maybe there would be a fun little feature where you could see the weather in say Kanto for this week. Of course, you have to pay extra for this privilege, but who would turn down such a useful tool?
Since the bills clearly define “electricity” and “water,” we’re surprised TPC hasn’t tried to come up with some kind of money planning app.
We mean, come on, what better sign of a cost-of-living crisis than a little animation of a sweaty Pikachu popping up on your screen when you get your monthly billing information?
Okay, sure, so it might “get in the way” of an otherwise “extremely important task”, but at least it would give you the option to use menu headers like Save your Pika-Pennies as an indicator Bust Gimmighoul slowly empties in the corner.
With language learning apps like Duolingo, it’s surely only a matter of time before we start learning fictional languages like the ones Pokémon speak.
You can take part in courses of different lengths, which take you through all the necessary words from “Pika” to ugh“Pika-Pika”.
Yes, some of these are easier to learn than the ones on Duolingo, but at least you can visit Hoenn and feel like a local.
Pokémon Sleep is all about getting a good night’s rest, so how about an app that helps you wind down after a stressful day? Think of popular apps like Headspace or Calm, but in the background, the Pokémon anime theme plays softly on the harp. Mmmm, I know this is my destiny…
Probably a series of meditation sessions based around the image of a Charmander sitting calmly on a cushion sounds pretty good to us indeed. It actually sounds a lot like the ASMR videos that The Pokémon Company occasionally posts (see below).
There may even be a number of manifestation programs recorded by Stephen Fry’s, we don’t know, booming voices repeating positive affirmations such as a.m the best” and “I will catch them all”.
Will any of the above ever see the light of day? We wouldn’t bet against it. Which lifestyle app would you like to get the Pokémon treatment? Let us know in the comments.
