For those of you who follow Pokémon news, you’ve probably heard that McDonald’s restaurants in the U.S. gave away Pokémon cards with Happy Meals back in February. It’s now our turn and you’ll finally be able to get your hands on these at McDonald's locations across Canada.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Pokémon and what better way to celebrate than by partnering with McDonald’s to give away their popular cards in Happy Meals!
In each Happy Meal you’ll receive a never-before offered McDonald's booster pack of Pokémon TCG (Trading Card Game) cards. The full set features 25 cards, however there are also 25 special holographic versions of the cards which brings the grand total to 50 cards.
Each pack includes 4 Pokémon TCG cards so you’ll have to open a lot of packs if you want to collect the entire set. In addition to the cards, you’ll also get a very cool Pikachu Happy Meal box and one toy (Pokémon stickers, card frame, or a card case).
The US release was ridiculously popular, with reports of fans buying up all the card packs they could get their hands on. If you’re serious about collecting the full set, I highly recommend going out early to find them.
