Once you’ve encountered Dragonite, you’ll be able to invite it to a party and even recruit it as staff. Well, it’s almost that easy. You’ll need to raise their friendship level enough first. You can do this by completing orders for them when they appear in your cafe.
I don’t know about you, but I think it would be extremely awkward to have this giant dragon Pokémon working in my cafe. First of all, how are you supposed to buy an apron big enough for it? Will it even fit in the tiny kitchen space? Regardless, it seems like the Pokémon’s special skill might be enough to justify the effort you’ll need to go to in order to squeeze it into your kitchen.
Dragonite isn’t the first special customer in Pokémon Café Mix. The first was Scorbunny, and the update it arrived with also added 20 new levels to the game. So far there’s no word on the next update adding any more levels in, but having Dragonite as a recruitable Pokémon should be enough.
