Which Starter will you have for your starter?

Pokémon fans worldwide are already amped up for the game series’ latest instalment, “Pokémon Sword and Shield,” which will be released in Japan on November 15. And just in case you’re worrying about not having anywhere to wear your new Pikashu makeup, we’ve got the perfect place for you to go.

To celebrate and give fans a taste (pun fully intended) of what they can expect in the game, the Official Pokémon Cafe (located in Tokyo and Osaka) are releasing special Sword and Shield Pokémon Starter Plates. Each plate is designed after one of the game’s three new Starters, and they all look absolutely scrumptious.

▼ The new Grass type starter is: Grookey!

This is the Grookey Melty Pie Stew. You’re supposed to use Grookey’s signature stick to poke a hole into a flaky pie crust to reveal the delicious stew beneath.

▼ And here’s the Fire type: Scorbunny.

Scorbunny’s Flame Energy Tomato and Meatball Plate includes protein-packed meatballs and edible flame figures that are said to give you all of this cute bunny’s energy. It also comes with a salad and rice decorated to look like the Fire starter.

▼ Last up is Sobble, the Water type starter.

Sobble‘s signature plate is a Berry Berry Fruit Sandwich. Your Sobble-like sandwich comes with whipped cream sandwiched between two pieces of blue bread along with an aesthetic serving of blueberries.

Each limited-edition plate costs 1,848 yen (US$16.97). Also, if you order a drink with your Starter plate, you’ll get one of six random clear coasters that you can also take home as a souvenir! Only five designs have been revealed, so the sixth one is a mystery.

▼ What do you think the secret design is?

This campaign will run from November 15, 2019 to January 17, 2020. If you want to get in on this special deal, make a reservation (it’s required!!) at either the Tokyo or Osaka location and get your stomach ready!
