A Wild Meal Appeared! Have Fun With Your Favorite Characters in Tokyo’s Pokémon Café!

Date published: 9 August 2019

Just as Pokémon like to appear in certain seasons, the Pokémon Café is constantly changing its menu to bring a sense of seasonality and fun to your café experience! Let’s see what items they have on offer!

Lugia and Ho-Oh make their first appearance at the Pokémon Café!

(June 20 – September 6, 2019)
This is the second set of characters from “Pokémon Gold and Silver” to show their faces at the Pokémon Café, and they’re set to join the team in summer!

The two legendary Pokémon first made their way onto the scene in 1999 when “Pokémon Gold and Silver” was released for the Gameboy, and the two characters are still going strong, being the favorites of many fans worldwide!

So, why not combine your love of Pokémon with your love of food, and finish your meal with one of these Legendary desserts!

For the water-type lovers, the perfect choice would be the “Lugia and the Whirl Islands Kakigori Dessert Plate” is a dish with a Lugia-shaped cake and an accompanying Whirl Island shaved ice, in a beautifully fresh lemon flavor. (1,922 yen)

But for those who want a bit of fire in their step, the "Ice cream dessert plate with Ho-oh and rainbow feathers" would be best! This is a combination platter with a Ho-oh shaped strawberry-flavored cake and ice cream with a rainbow-feather twist. (1,922 yen)

Go all out with a full-blown Pokémon meal!

Along with the newly introduced Legendary desserts, there are of course some mouth-watering savory dishes to make for a Gold-star meal! All under the same theme of “Pokémon Gold and Silver”, these are sure to satisfy anyone - Pokémon lover or not!

Just like Espeon itself, who can only evolve during the daytime, the “Espeon Teriyaki Chicken Burger” (1,598 yen) is only available from 10:30 to 17:59!

However, the larger, tartare-sauce-covered “Umbreon Fried Chicken Burger” (1,598 yen) is only available in the evening, between 18:00 and 22:00 (Last order 21:00), as the darker Pokemon evolves at night.

For the creatives, "Smeargle’s Drawing Pancake" (1,490 yen) comes with a special chocolate pen to draw your own design! How many Pokémon can you fit on one pancake?

Order a drink and get an "Orginial Pokémon Café Clear Coaster"! You’ll get a random pick from one of the 6 coaster designs, and if you’re lucky enough, you might get the rare secret design!

Take home a sleepy Snorlax after a relaxing meal.. ZzZ

(From August 10, 2019)
Using special Pokémon kitchenware such as this adorable Snorlax, the Pokémon Café is all set for a new menu starting in August!

As you walk into the building, you might notice a giant Snorlax blocking your route! But don’t worry, this mini version isn’t standing in the way of a seriously tasty meal. Take a little piece of the café home with you by buying the Snorlax bowl afterwards!

Snorlax seems to have dozed off after this huge lunch! “Snorlax’s Super Filling Lunch Plate” (1,922 yen) is perfect for those with a healthy appetite! You might end up in a food coma yourself!

The “I Choose You! Pokéball Dessert” (1,706 yen), though, is a surprise! You won’t find out what’s inside until you come and visit! We can’t tell you the secret, but we can give you a hint by telling you the ingredients (don’t tell anyone we told you!):
Berry flavored jelly, strawberry sponge cake, strawberry, monaka bean jelly, whipped cream, crepe batter, and mint

What do you think it could be?
