Pokemon Cafe Features New Adorable Menu Items From Sword and Shield
The official Pokemon cafe will be featuring new menu items from Pokemon Sword and Shield, including Morpeko and Galarian Weezing.
The official Pokemon cafe, which offers some very cute menu items such as Energetic Pikachu Curry, has a couple brand new dishes for customers to dine on. The first is based on the Galarian Weezing, which is described as a “gas pancake” but is actually blueberry pancakes that use cotton candy for the smoke wisps and what seems to be whipped cream for the beards. The second is the Morpeko curry dish, which features two types of curry sauces to represent its “Full Belly Mode” and “Hangry Mode”:
The dishes will be available from January 18th to March 19th as limited time offerings. Meanwhile the Energetic Pikachu Curry, Purin (Jigglypuff) Cheesecake, and Doble (Smeargle) Pancake will be discontinued on January 17th.
There’s a brand new holiday Delibird Max Raid event going on right now for Pokemon Sword and Shield, which is set to end on December 25th.

And for the month of November, Pokemon Sword was the third best selling game, the double pack including both titles ranking at fourth place, and Pokemon Shield being in fifth place. However, if you combined those sales then total it would bring them to the number two spot.
