You've wanted to catch 'em all, but have you ever wanted to eat 'em all?

Maybe not. Nonetheless, you might be excited to know that a Pokémon-themed pop-up bar is coming to five major cities across the UK and US later this year.

As well as the cutest little burgers, the bar will serve pocket monster cocktails, while giving you the chance to play a real-life version of the much-loved game as local DJs spin tunes throughout.

Set across seven sections, the two-hour sessions will involve hunting, battling and, of course, catching Pokémon - and anyone who completes all levels will be deemed the ultimate winner.

If you'd like a chance to see your favourite game come to life, luckily the bar will be located across five major UK cities - Birmingham, London, Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester - on various dates in September and October.

For those who are in the US, you can already buy tickets for November events set to be held in Los Angeles, New York, Cleveland and Miami.

Oh, and of course fancy dress is encouraged.


Per the official description: "This pop-up is the first of its kind and will consist of Pokémon inspired burgers and Pokémon inspired games and cocktails. There will also be local DJ's spinning tunes all day.

"This unique bar will be sold on a first come first serve basis with tickets limited - to register your interest simply sign up in the box above for pre-release tickets.

"Please note: Under 21's must be accompanied by an adult. There will also be lots of prizes to be won for the best dressed!"

Although there's no news on which of the pocket monsters will make an appearance at the event, you can bet good money on the fan faves being there, like Charizard, Bulbasaur and Pikachu. Here's hoping Mewtwo shows up as well.

If you're in the US, you can secure your spot via Eventbrite for $55, while UK residents can leave their city and email addy to register an interest and sign up for pre-release tickets - just follow this link to apply or buy.

So what are you waiting for? If you want all your Pokémon dreams to come true, get yourself signed up for this once-in-a-lifetime event.

And while you wait, why not get your old Pokémon cards out of retirement? You can brush up on your gaming trivia, battle your pals and maybe even make a bit of money while you're at it.
