Pokémon center and cafe will open in Tokyo next year and we gotta catch them all

Ready your Poké balls and your Pokémon trainer outfit! The gaming franchise with the cult following has announced plans to open a permanent restaurant and cafe in Tokyo next spring.

It won’t be the first Pokémon restaurant to open in the world. In the last few years, pop-up cafes have launched in Tokyo and Singapore in response to the frenzied popularity of the game.

But when the Pokémon Center Tokyo and DX & Pokémon Cafe opens at the Nihonbashi Takashimaya SC East Building on March 14, 2018, it will mark the company’s first permanent restaurant.

Renderings for the space reveal a large boutique where visitors can purchase Pokémon-branded merchandise, and a cafeteria-style restaurant.

When it comes to themed restaurants, Tokyo has the market cornered. Last year, Nintendo also opened a series of Kirby-themed cafes.

In 2015, Tokyo saw the opening of a “My Little Pony”-themed cafe, which serves coffee art emblazoned with the iconic characters.

Now we can’t wait for 2018 and explore this Pokémon center and cafe!
