As a millennial kid, I watched Pokémon. It’s what you did. Not knowing the program was an import from Japan, I always wondered what in the world Ash, Brock, and Misty were eating amidst their travels.
I also wondered why they always devoured food whole like they were stranded on a desert island for three months, but that’s a different conversation.

But intrepid fans will soon have the chance to taste the same food as their favorite heroes as the Pokémon franchise is entering the food business. A Pokémon Café will open in Tokyo, Japan early next year and will be the company’s first brick-and-mortar restaurant. The café will be located at the Takashimaya store in Nohonbashi prefecture.
Those who have visited Tokyo know the city’s overflowing Pokémon love with stores that are metropolises unto themselves. They’re called Pokémon Center Mega stores and there you can find every Pikachu and Pokémon toy you could ever desire.
However, the new restaurant will be officially called Pokémon Center Tokyo DX, and feature themed food and drink from the Poké-universe. In addition, fans will find merchandise exclusive to the location.
