The Pokémon Cafe revealed a new specialty shop was opening in Japan. The official website showed a mockup of the new Pikachu Sweets by Pokémon Cafe shop along with the official logo.

The shop is decorated in pink and white stripes, with various Pikachu characters dressed as the staff. They match the cute artwork of the Pikachu-themed logo, which sure to be front and center on the shop.

This sweets shop is different from other Pokémon Cafes. Usually, these themed shops have places for customers to sit down for a limited time to enjoy various Pokémon-themed menu items.

The Pikachu Sweets shop is specifically for takeout orders. The mockup photos of the shop don’t show any places to sit down. There’s only a circular counter for patrons to place an order and pick it up. This isn’t unusual for Japan, where finding a place to sit down and enjoy a treat is sometimes hard to come by.

Unfortunately, there’s no information out yet about what kind of sweet treats will be offered at the shop. The mockup shows a five-tier cute treat tray of some sort, but this isn’t the final image.

The exact location of the shop is in Sunshine City Ikebukuro, which is also home to the Pokémon Center Mega Tokyo.

This Pokémon Center, located in the giant Sunshine City mall within Ikebukuro, is the largest in the world. The store offers several limited-edition goods, along with photo-worthy statues of various Pokémon. There are also plenty of capsule machines containing small toys perfect for taking home for gifts.

Fans of the Pokémon series are sure to find goods of their favorite Pokémon at this shop.

Outside of the store are Pokken game machines. The shop also occasionally hosts special events, making it the perfect spot for the new Pikachu Sweets Cafe.

The Sunshine City mall is also home to other popular attractions, such as Namco’s J-World theme park and Namja Town.

The news comes days before the November 15 launch of the highly-anticipated game Pokémon Sword and Shield on the Nintendo Switch. Gamers in Japan will have the opportunity to have a Pokémon-themed treat while enjoying the latest installment in the series.

The Pikachu Sweets by Pokémon Cafe shop is scheduled to open in Winter 2019.
