How to Unlock Sub Skills image showing some sub-skills in pokemon sleep.

The main skill of each Pokemon is active from the beginning. However, to unlock sub-skills, players must level up Pokemon. Each creature can have five sub-skills that unlock at regular intervals of every 25 levels after level 10: at levels 10, 25, 50, 75, and 100, a new sub-skill unlocks. There are two methods for unlocking sub-skills; players can either recruit a Pokemon and let it grow or spend Dream Shards and Candies to boost its level-up process.

In Pokemon Sleep, Natures determine the overall performance of Pokemon, while skills give them unique abilities. Like other Pokemon games, Nature affects a Helper’s stats, enhancing or relegating a specific action. However, skills—and sub-skills—always boost performance.

Pokemon Sleep is available now for Android and iOS.
