Pokémon Go has taken the world by a storm, and now it’s taking over Starbucks.

Starbucks (SBUX) locations around the world have started making Pokémon inspired drinks, which are grabbing the attention of Pokémon Go fans and Starbucks lovers alike. However, the most notable of the recent creations is the Pokéball Frappuccino, which first came out of a Starbucks in New Zealand, according to to Eater.

According to Business Insider Australia, the drinks is made with a strawberry and vanilla Frappuccino topped with strawberry whipped cream.

Many other Starbucks locations around the world have added their own flare to the Pokémon inspired drinks. A Starbucks location in Korea has started selling a beverage that includes a mocha drizzle and a cake pop, making the drinks resemble a Pokéball, according to Refinery29.


And in Southern California, baristas have been making drinks that mimic the appearance of some Pokémon characters, such as “Eevee,” “Bulbasaur,” and “Jigglypuff.”



Other drinks at the coffee chain have garnered a lot of attention this summer, especially those made with coconut milk. In June, Starbucks released the Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato, which is an espresso beverage made with coconut milk, mixed with white chocolate mocha sauce, and topped with caramel sauce. Most recently, however, Starbucks’s “pink drink” has taken over Instagram. The drink, which is not on the company’s traditional menu, is a mix of their strawberry açaí refresher and coconut milk. The Instagram hashtag #pinkdrink has close to 99,000 posts and counting, according to Insider.
