First in-game event: Special Customer Scorbunny

With nearly 900 Pokémon established, there are plenty of potential visitors as well as staff. Special events will introduce new Pokémon and we know about our first one thanks to the Pokémon Café Mix site. “From July 1, 2020, to July 15, 2020,(subject to change) Scorbunny will appear in your café as a customer. If you serve up orders for Scorbunny and strengthen your friendship with it enough during the event, it will join you as a staff Pokémon.”

 

Pokémon Café Mix digital freebies

In honor of the game’s release, the official Pokémon Café Mix Twitter account has released a digital wallpaper for your phone and other smart devices. Available in two sizes, the wallpaper features the game’s official cover art and some dishes you’ll be serving up in-game.

 

 
Then, over on the official Japanese site for the game, there’s a special “create your own digital message card” generator. Pick out a background, a Pokémon, a message (or the blank option), and which Pokémon-inspired dish to serve — and you’ll get a downloadable image. Excellent for icons, here are a few examples of what you can make!

 

 

Special Nintendo eShop card

Starting on Monday, June 29th, a special ¥1,500 Nintendo eShop card will be made available at participating retailers in Japan. Sporting Pikachu and Eevee in their café server attire, the card also comes with a code to redeem 2,000 golden acorns. Whether you plan on playing the game or not, you have to admit that this special Nintendo eShop card is ridiculously adorable. 

Flip over that “Open for business” sign and get ready to match up Pokémon the next time you boot up your Nintendo Switch and start-up Pokémon Café Mix.
