In celebration of the release of this year’s Pokémon movie Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction on Saturday, a special “Pokémon the Movie XY Shop” will be open in Tokyo’s Roppongi Hills between July 19 and August 31. Pokémon fans will definitely want to stock up on the limited-edition goods being sold there, as well as sample the adorable Pikachu-themed food at the “Pikachu Cafe.” Plus, the shop will be located on the observation deck of one of Tokyo’s highest buildings, so you can fit in some essential sightseeing, too!

“Pokémon the Movie XY Shop” will be open for business starting this Saturday, July 19 at the Tokyo City View, an observation deck on the 52nd floor of the Mori Tower Building (which is part of the Roppongi Hills complex). The shop’s official Twitter stream has steadily been releasing sneak peaks of the shop before its grand opening, and we’re already bursting with excitement!

One of the major highlights of the shop will be a special “Pikachu Cafe,” where visitors can taste some expertly-crafted goodies modeled after everyone’s favorite electric rodent. Don’t worry, Pikachu looks positively delighted to be consumed by you.

These pictures should whet your palate:
