A new update is out now for Pokemon Cafe Mix, the free-to-play Pokemon puzzle game for Nintendo Switch and mobile. The update introduces a new team function that lets players cooperatively clear team challenges, and the first of these features a very hungry Snorlax.
For 300 golden acorns, players can create their own team, separate from their friends list. Each team can hold up to 30 players, and those who form their own teams will receive 300 golden acorns for each member they recruit (up to a maximum of 10,000 golden acorns). Players can also join existing teams either by searching for a specific one (via their team name or ID) or by selecting one from a randomly compiled list.
How’s business, Pokémon Café owners?
Starting today there’s a new business opportunity! With the new team function, you can participate in the first team event on 9/24, Hungry Snorlax! Take on the event with a team of up to 30 #PokemonCafeMix players.https://t.co/2FRGOzXtxY pic.twitter.com/JW6JpHzcGQ

Players on a team will work together to collectively complete new team events. The first such event runs from September 24 to October 8 and features the notoriously gluttonous Snorlax. If teams can raise Snorlax’s satisfaction level by the end of the event, the Pokemon will join their staff. The Pokemon Company says more team events will be held in the future.
Beyond the new team function, Pokemon Cafe Mix has added 50 new Regular Orders and 25 new Master Orders. A Team Order Pack is also available to purchase with real money, and it includes 13,400 golden acorns, an assortment of items, and Snorlax Maniac Pikachu as a new staffer. You can read more about the update on the official Pokemon website.
In other Pokemon news, Pokemon Go recently kicked off a Team Rocket event that makes Jessie and James appear more frequently until September 30, when the duo will be leaving the game. The Legendary Articuno is also appearing in Raid Battles again until September 25. Meanwhile, the series’ latest mainline installments, Pokemon Sword and Shield, are slated to receive their second DLC expansion–The Crown Tundra–sometime this fall.
