Pokémon is coming soon to a McDonald's Happy Meal near you

Yes, it’s that time of year again. A brand new Pokémon game is right around the corner. What else could that mean other than the release of more Happy Meal toys? According to the McDonald’s website, the next round of Happy Meal toys will feature the cute and cuddly Pokémon we love so well. Although, we don’t have any specifics as to what the toys will be and which Pokémon will be represented.

In the past, McDonald’s has usually just included Pokémon figures with collectible trading cards added in. I remember years ago I got a Reshiram figure with a Sandile card. That’s enough to make any child happy.

As to which Pokémon will be included, we can guess they’ll be from the upcoming Pokémon Sword and Shield games. I personally have my fingers crossed for a Sirfetch’d toy. But of course, we won’t know what the Happy Meal toys will be until they start appearing next month. Until then, make sure to leave your stomach empty enough for all those chicken nuggets.

In Japan, McDonald’s and Pokémon actually already crossed paths recently, with an awesome Poké Ball Happy Meal to commemorate the release of Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution.

What do you guys expect to see in the Happy Meals next month? Do you even like to eat at McDonald’s? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!

I love all kinds of video games. I personally find the most enjoyment in JRPGs, Visual Novels, and pretty much anything Nintendo makes. I'm always open to discovering new types of games, so I'll be happy to check out anything someone suggests.
