If you find yourself in Japan on Jan. 18, and also happen to be a Pokémon fan, it may be worth searching for a Pokémon Café.

Nintendo Life published a piece confirming that new dishes based on Pokémon Sword and Shield are coming exclusively to the Pokemon-branded cafes. Meals in these cafes are often creatively made to look like certain Pokémon from the games, and these new dishes are no exception.

One of these new dishes is a pancake that has the appearance of Galarian Weezing. The other dish is an omelet that looks like Morpeko, and has two different sauces.

Galarian Weezing and Morpeko won’t be the first new Pokémon introduces in Sword and Shield to have meals based on themselves in the café; cafes in Japan already have menu items based on Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble. The three Pokémon are the starters of Sword and Shield, and were made available when the game launched on Nov. 15, 2019.
