Free to Start Pokemon Cafe Mix Announced, Launches June 24 on Switch, Android, and iOS

The Pokemon Company and Nintendo have revealed Pokemon Cafe Mix during the Pokemon Presents live stream.

Players take charge of a special cafe for Pokemon, fulfilling their orders by linking Pokemon icons and swirling them around. The Pokemon customers you befriend can also end up as staff, who have their own specializes for dishes; and special abilities to help solve puzzles.

You can also expand your cafe, which makes more Pokemon visit. The trailer also mentions the game is “free-to-start,” though details on how this will work is still coming.

The game is available to pre-load on Nintendo eShop, and pre-order on the App Store and Google Play.

You can find the announcement trailer below.

You can find an abridged rundown (via the official website) below.

Welcome to the Café!

Pokémon Café Mix is a delightful, free-to-start puzzle game for Nintendo Switch and smart devices. Work together with Pokémon to complete puzzles and create wonderful drinks and dishes to serve at your Pokémon Café.

Cause a Stir!

You’re the owner of a café for Pokémon in this fun and casual game. To solve puzzles, you must link matching Pokémon icons to clear them from the screen. Each puzzle has its own objectives, so think carefully before making your move.

Meet the Staff!

When you open your café, Eevee will be the first Pokémon on your staff. Continue solving puzzles to create delightful Pokémon-themed café offerings that are almost too adorable to eat or drink, and you’ll soon have more Pokémon joining your staff!

  • Bulbasaur
  • Charmander
  • Squirtle
  • Pikachu
  • Jigglypuff
  • Meowth
  • Machoke
  • Electrode
  • Chansey
  • Eevee
  • Piplup
  • Munchlax
  • Rowlet
  • Pancham

The more you play, the more your café will grow with new areas and upgrades. Keep developing your café, and new Pokémon will be inspired to visit.

What’s On the Menu

As you serve yummy drinks and dishes to your Pokémon customers, you’ll build friendships with them. Once you’ve reached the first level of friendship with a Pokémon, it’ll join your café staff!

Pokemon Cafe Mix launches June 24th for Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS.
