Pokemon Cafe Mix Adds Co-Op Mode, Snorlax Joins The Party
Build a team and tackle Snorlax in the latest Pokemon Cafe Mix update.
Pokemon Cafe Mix was announced as part of one of this summer’s Pokemon Presents presentations. The Free to Play puzzler, which achieved over five million downloads in less than two months, sees you take control of a cafe, serving guests and enticing other Pokemon to join your staff.
With the success of the title, support has continued to come and multiple updates have hit the game since launch. The latest update is one of the most substantial as it allows players to build a team, consisting of their real-world friends, to help with trickier Pokemon.

The creation of a team costs 300 Golden Acorns and upon creation designates the original creator as the team captain. The official update recommends using this as an opportunity to create new friendships, saying:
“You can form a team with your existing friends, but this is also a great opportunity to branch out and become friends with other players as well.
You can always join an existing team. You can search for specific teams via their team name or team ID, or you can choose a team from a randomly generated list to join. No matter which method you choose, you and your new teammates will combine your efforts to take on some formidable challenges.”
The update also adds some new bonuses for players. For every team member recruited to a team, players will earn a bonus 300 Golden Acorns (up to 10,000). Players will also have the option to purchase, for real money, the special Team Order Pack. This pack contains a Pikachu wearing a Snorlax outfit, 13,400 golden acorns and a variety of items that can be used to help complete puzzles.
The main focus of forming a team is to take down a “very hungry” Snorlax. The Pokemon, who is available now until October 8, will be a very formidable challenge and players will “definitely need some helping hands” to recruit Pokemon Cafe Mix’s latest customer. Upon being recruited, Snorlax has a special ability that can “can clear Pokémon icons and gimmicks within a certain range below.”
Pokemon Cafe Mix is available now on Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
