Pokémon Happy Meal Toys Coming to America

As if McDonald's Monopoly didn't already kill your diet for the next year.

Pokémon Happy Meal toys are slated to be the next set of toys released in restaurants across America.

After toys promoting The Amazing Spider-Man 2 disappear, a set of twelve toys themed from Pokémon X and Y are to take their place. Judging from the promotional image released, the toys appear to be flat cardboard or plastic Pokémon in front of Pokéballs that will come with corresponding official Pokémon trading cards.

In these Happy Meals, there will also be a barcode that can be scanned and synced up with McDonald’s McPlay app to unlock a small mini-game.

There has been no news yet regarding whether or not these toys will eventually release in other regions.

lol. Becky knows what's up.

These toys seem kind of lame compared to the Pokéball items with golden Pokémon tabs inside that you could get at Burger King around the time Pokémon first came to the US. Those toys felt like they really gave you something.

i LOVED those golden Pokémon card things at Burger King! can we get more gold-plated toys at fast food restaurants?

For the record, the Gold-Plated Pokemon cards from BK didn't come in kids meals - they were sold on the side for (I think) $3.99 each.

The kids meals had (I think) 59 different little Pokemon toys in them that came in plastic baggies with infant-killing Pokeballs inside and the toy inside that.
Just some random guy on the internet who has a different opinion of games than you.
