It’s been 21 years since the original Pokémon games—Pokémon Red and Green—were released in Japan. To celebrate, the monster-collecting RPG is collaborating with high-class Japanese department store Isetan for a limited-time cafe with some exclusive merchandise.

The Isetan Lounge will be changing into the “Ise-dan Lounge,” which literally means “Team Ise Lounge.” Here, you can feast on some of the delights on the menu, which the cafe staff insist was created by members of Team Ise who traveled the world to find delicious menu items. Here’s a look at just some of the things you can order:

The “Memories of Meeting. Three Secret Curries” dish is a recommendation of the chef, and comes with three different curries: butter chicken, Indian green, and Thai red. The curry is served with a serving of Pikachu-colored turmeric rice. This plate costs 2,474 yen (about USD $22).

The “Moo Moo Milk & Fresh Fruit Mixed Au Lait” has a bit of a “mixed” history in the West—in the English version of Pokemon, the “Mixed Au Lait”—a drink made of milk and fruit juice—was replaced with “Lemonade.” In Japan, however, it has been released in the real world in the past for promotions for the games and anime. This drink has fresh milk and summer fruit juice, and costs 962 yen (about USD $9).

The event will also have limited-time goods, including a plushie of Pikachu with an Isetan bag, as well as a scarf with the main visual for the event. This plushie costs 2,160 yen (about USD $20).

The event will be going on at the Isetan department store in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district from August 16 to 21, and reservations for the lounge will begin at 10 a.m. JST on August 2. It will cost a base fee of 1,080 yen to reserve, but the reservation will come with an original metal pin badge and a photo prop set to take a picture in the lounge. Be warned that reservations must be made in Japanese.

If you can’t make it to the lounge, other stores within the department store will sell limited-edition items and food for a limited time.

Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! premiered in Japan on July 15, 2017 to celebrate the anime’s 20th anniversary, and will open in select North American theaters for a limited time. The latest anime—Pokémon: Sun & Moon—is currently airing in North America on Disney XD.
