A number of new updates have made their way to Pokémon Café Mix, the free-to-play Pokémon puzzler which launched on the Switch eShop this June.
Most notably, the game has added its first-ever team event, where players can join forces to recruit new Pokémon staff. This new function lets you form a team of up to 30 people – separate from your friend list – to take on challenging team events. It looks like you'll need the help, too, as Snorlax is far too hungry to please by yourself.
Here's a full rundown of the new updates:
Form Your Team
You can create your own team for the cost of 300 golden acorns. When you create a team, you become the team captain. 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.
Cool New Bonuses
To celebrate the Pokémon Café Mix update, players who start their own team can pick up a nice bonus for a limited time: For every team member you recruit, you will earn 300 golden acorns (up to 10,000 golden acorns). In addition, the shop has a special Team Order Pack—which you can purchase with real-world money—that contains Snorlax Maniac Pikachu.
And yes, Pokémon Café Mix’s first team event sees a snack-craving Snorlax visiting your café. By working with your team members from September 24 through October 8, 2020, you can raise Snorlax’s satisfaction level by serving it tasty dishes and convince it to join your staff. Snorlax’s Café Skill can clear Pokémon icons and gimmicks below, potentially making it very useful in completing tricky puzzles. Once this event ends, you can look forward to more team events in the future.
