Pokémon Café Mix getting a ReMix this Fall
As announced in August’s Pokémon Direct, Pokémon Café Mix is getting a huge new update this Fall, including a new name, Pokémon Café Remix.
Update September 30, 2021: One of two updates has been announced ahead of the release of Pokémon Café ReMix this fall. On October 13th, as minor update will take place, after which you will have to have a persistent internet connection when you play. This is to prevent any “data inconsistencies” due to offline gameplay, i.e. loss of data, when accounts are migrated. Offline gameplay will then no longer be available, even after account migration and the release of Pokémon Café ReMix.
The larger update will then take place later in October. We’ll give you more information when we have it.
Pokémon Café Mix is an adorable free-to-play puzzle game, available on mobile and Nintendo Switch. It originally came out in June 2020, but is due a huge overhaul in the coming weeks, bringing with it new outfits, Pokémon and its new name…
Pokémon Café ReMix
Though the footage and announcement was quite vague in what we can expect from the new update, there was certainly a lot to go on. The main change to gameplay is going to be the addition of new staff and customer Pokémon and, therefore, more ways to beat each individual stage. Though the clip was pretty fast-paced (jump to 2:00 in the video above for just Café Mix content), there are a few new faces we can pick out, including the likes of Sudowoodo, Greninja and Oshawott.
There will also be new styling options as well, with far more customization than before. We can see new chef whites in the video, and even color options, including Jigglypuff Pink and Pikachu Yellow, to really make your staff stand out.
Finally, new challenges will provide you with new ways to level up your staff Pokémon.
Pokémon Café Mix Data Transfer
With this huge change, your data will have to be transferred over to the new game. While this will happen automatically and you won’t have to do anything, it’s worth knowing what items and Pokémon will and won’t transfer across.
Pokémon that are currently hired at your café will transfer to the new Pokémon Café ReMix. However, friendship levels with Pokémon who are both on and not on your staff will reset. Staff Pokémon will, as such, revert to Level One, but in order to reward you for your hard work up till now, you will receive Rare Tarts based on the levels with those Pokémon before the reset. You can then use those Rare Tarts to level the staff Pokémon back up. Similarly, any Tasty Tarts you had before will be replaced with more Rare Tarts.
Any special outfit Pokémon will revert to being a normal Pokémon, however, the outfit will then become a separate item available to use from your outfits collection. For example, Sweets Pikachu will just become a normal Pikachu, but you will be able to dress it in the Sweets outfit.
Your Golden Acorns, Boosters, Unclaimed Presents, Points and Puzzle Powers will all transfer over to the new game.
Pokémon Café ReMix Release Date
We do not yet know the exact release date of this future update, other than we have been told it’s coming this Fall. Pokémon Café Mix updates are always released every second Wednesday, though, with the next one due on October 6. Could we see this huge change brought in then? We’ll have to wait and see. One thing is for sure, we’ll let you know as soon as we know.
In the meantime, let us know in the comments which new Pokémon you’re hoping to see added to the game.
