On 3/14, Pokemon Center DX and Pokemon Cafe open in Tokyo. While there have been small Pokemon-themed cafes every now and then, this is the first permanent establishment. We've known about these for a few months, it seems that today the Pokemon Cafe site updated with a lot of new information.

https://www.pokemoncenter-online.com/cafe/

Starting on Monday, March 5th at 6PM, reservations will open. You can reserve up to April 5th. YOU NEED A RESERVATION TO ENTER THE POKEMON CAFE. Later on I suppose they might open it up to first come first serve, but for now you have to register on the website. So if you are going to be in Tokyo in the next few weeks and wanted to drop by, be sure to stake your spot. You can reserve a seat, or reserve a seat and exclusive merchandise. Also every customer needs to order at least two items so take out a loan now.

The website also showcases some pictures of the interior. It looks quite nice.





Here is a sampling of the menu. Sorry for the low quality pics, but you can see everything in more detail at the site. Who WOULDN'T want to pay $20 for an Eevee burger?







In addition to food there will also be some merchandise. It is also expensive believe it or not.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS

I’m taking this as implying you’re eating Pokemon. How horrific. Parents will riot. Pokemon is done as a franchise.

For some reason I thought this had to do with an unreleased Pokemon Wii U game. Wasn't the Wii U original code name Project Cafe?

kubus Not as cute as the kirby pancakes, but still quite cute on it's own right.
I wonder if they let you keep the plates and mugs or if you can at least buy them. I need that Eevee mug.
Seems like you can buy them when ordering the drink, cost a extra 980 yen to keep the mug.

Doesn't seem like there's any way to buy them without ordering the drink though.

I appreciate that the entire place is of minimalist design with light colors and an emphasis on squares/rectangles and all the seating and furniture arranged on a grid.

It's like a real attempt to recreate a space from a Game Boy game.

That's... really expensive. Seems even more expensive than the other anime cafes I've been to. Still, I might make a reservation. I'd like to at least see how it is.

The Pokémon Company just shot themselves in the foot.

I don't know how much the rest of you know about Japanese culture (I'm an expert), but honor and shame are huge parts of it. It's not like it is in America where you can become successful by cooking animals. If you cook and consume a Pokémon over in Japan, you bring shame to yourself, and the only way to get rid of that shame is repentance.

What this means is the japanese public, after hearing about this, is not going to want to purchase any Pokémon merchandise, nor will they purchase any of Game Freaks games. This is HUGE. You can laugh all you want, but The Pokémon Company has alienated an entire market with this move.

Pokémon Company, publicly apologize and cancel the opening of this cafe or you can kiss your business goodbye.

Yeah... I doubt that's what they were going for, ha.

Do people go to these things on a regular basis or is it more of a curiosity? Like, you go once and that's it?

so its overpriced kids bento? Is that pikachu basically omelette rice?

Although my daughter will want to go and we're there at the end of the month. If you really can't buy the Evee or Pikachu mugs unless you also buy that particular drink its evil but hilarious
