Pokemon Cafe Mix is now open for business on Switch and mobile

Remember to practice social distancing though

It’s a busy morning at Chez Pokémon. Not only did fans receive word of new “MOBA-like” Pokemon Unite, but the doors are now officially open at Pokémon Cafe Mix, which is available to download on Nintendo Switch and iOS/Android devices.

Revealed during last week’s “Pokémon Presents” broadcast, Pokémon Cafe Mix is a fast-moving puzzler which tasks players with mix-and-matching character icons in order to build a menu for your burgeoning business. As the cafe expands in size, popularity, and staff, more and more cuddly critters will pay you a visit to enjoy a nice drink and a Dugtrio sandwich… That’s a sandwich shaped like Dugtrio, not a literal “Dugtrio sandwich”… That would be hideous.


Before y’all get too excited, Pokémon Cafe Mix is a free-to-play game, which of course means that it features a slew of “energy-based” in-app purchases. Time will tell how much fun can be garnered on a daily basis before the big bucks come a-callin’, but for now I’m digging its cute, charming art style and low-impact, puzzle-based gameplay.

Pokémon Cafe Mix is available now on Nintendo Switch, as well as iOS and Android devices.
