Pikachu Keeps Loners Company at Pokémon Cafe

Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.

For some folks, eating alone is awful. But not at the Tokyo Pokémon Cafe, where Pikachu will watch you eat.

As noted on Naver, people visiting the cafe solo get to sit across from a plush toy Pikachu.

The Pokémon Cafe isn't the first to do this. Last year, a Moomin Cafe also offered plush toy to lonely patrons.
