New range of dishes and tableware coming later this month to Pokémon Café locations in Tokyo and Osaka

From April 23rd, the Pokémon Café locations in Tokyo and Osaka will be releasing a range of new original Pokémon-themed menu items and tableware. Customers looking to have the Pokémon Café feeling at home will be able to purchase this tableware from the goods center in-shop at each Pokémon Café location. The new additions to the kids' menu, which is exclusivly available to elementary-school-student ages and below, feature "tons of Pikachu". The adults' menu is also expanding with a new original sandwich that promises to be popular with parents, while a Snorlax-themed pancake set is being added to the sweets menu.

The core new item joining the kids' menu is a hamburger with ketchup, the condiment that Ash's Pikachu is shown to love in the anime. The top bun itself has a Pikachu motif, complete with Pikachu's iconic spiky ears. The hamburger can be purchased on its own for ¥1,078 ($8.58 USD), or as part of a "For Kids Lunchplate Set", costing ¥3,850 ($30.66 USD), which includes assorted vegetables and Pikachu-shaped pasta as side dishes.

Let's enjoy eating this hamburger together with the Pokémon Café's Pikachu! There are lots of Pikachu hiding on the plate, so try to find them♪

The tableware for this dish includes a number of different images of Pikachu, with designs that show Pikachu as a chef, sipping tea, and baking.

With your purchase comes a 3-sheet Pokémon Café original coloring coaster set! Let's bring it home and color it in your favorite colors! I wonder if you'll color it well? You can also buy the Kids' tableware. The paper that the food is placed on is included (and is first-come first-served), so you can have the Pokémon Café feeling even at your home!

The newest addition to the adult-oriented menu is "Pikachu's fluffy tail-style Craft Sandwich Plate", which as the name suggests is a sandwich in the shape of Pikachu's tail. This item will be available for ¥1738 ($13.84 USD).
