The Pokémon Cookbook isn't, as you may have feared, a collection of culinary horrors detailing how to prepare your favorite pocket monsters, but rather more than 35 recipes inspired by the blockbuster franchise. And it's coming to North America this winter.
Viz Media will publish Maki Kudo's The Pokémon Cookbook: Easy & Fun Recipes, which details how to create delectable dishes ranging from a Poké Ball sushi roll to Pikachu-style ramen and mashed Meowth potatoes. Presumably Meowth isn't one of the ingredients.
“This book offers fans a tasty way to celebrate Pokémon with dozens of recipes inspired by the property’s many iconic characters,” Beth Kawasaki, senior editorial director for VIZ Media, said in a statement. “Filled with mouth-watering snacks, entrees and desserts, The Pokémon Cookbook is sure to become a fun and creative kitchen companion for families and foodies!”
Priced at $15, The Pokémon Cookbook will arrive in stores on Dec. 6.
