October is tea time in Japan. You know this because it’s the month when restaurants and Japanese style bars - Izakaya, swap out customary gratis ice-teas for steaming cups of hot green and barley tea. The Pokemon Cafe knows this too of course and they’ve whipped up a special tea menu inspired by Pokémon’s very own spooky tea creatures: Polteageist and Sinistea, so customers can enjoy a spot of Halloween themed afternoon tea!

On the same date Pikachu Sweets by Pokémon Cafe will unveil a new store interior while releasing a line of new equally adorable and delicious Pokémon sweets that will doubtless tempt customers to come celebrate the store’s redesign.
