POKEMON is Back at McDonald’s | Match Battle

It’s been a little over a year since McDonald’s collaborated with Pokémon for its 25th anniversary, and they’re back again!


Beginning today, August 16th, 2022, McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys will have Pokémon toys, which will include four game Pokémon game cards, a spinner, and a coin. Based on the promotional videos on McDonald’s website, the cards featured are brand new cards and not reprinted or redistributed versions from its 25th-anniversary run.

Photos from Twitter user @Drakers_12, sent to Pokebeach.com, appear to show the full, complete card set with different coins and spinners.

As previously mentioned, the toy will include a spinner and a coin that can be used in conjunction with the cards. Details on the game and how to play watch the video below:

It’s safe to assume that many, if not all, McDonald’s will implement a “Must buy a Happy Meal to get toy” policy due to their high demand; this was seen in many McDonald’s throughout the nation during the 25th anniversary run, to deter any scalpers who were looking into getting their hands on just the cards themselves.

We wish all Pokémon masters luck on their journey to collect these cards…also enjoy the month long McDonald’s diet, we know we will.

Levi’s x Pokémon collection coming NEXT WEEK

As part of Pokémon’s 25th anniversary, Nintendo is collaborating with Levi Strauss & Co.

The Levi’s x Pokémon collection, ranging from $20.00 – $148.00, will launch in Levi’s stores, on Levi.com, and on the Levi’s App starting February 15th. Inspired by the first season of the original Pokémon anime series, the collection includes a range of Levi’s denim, tops, bottoms, fleece, tees, and accessories that feature graphics and prints of both the popular characters and the woodland settings of the Kanto region.

Also included is a range of graphic tees that features throwback character art, such as Ash, Misty and Pokémon from that classic first season. And, for fans of Misty, there’s even the Levi’s Misty Short and Misty Tank, an homage to the iconic outfit she wears in the series.

There’s also an all-over floral Pokémon print gym bag, a Poké Ball crossbody bag and clip-on pouches with Pokémon characters embroidered on the front. And, on the sundries, the collection features Pokémon branding on Levi’s® back patches, Red Tabs that mimic red and white Poké Balls, and buttons stamped with Pikachu and Poké Balls.

In January, Nintendo announced it had began its 25th anniversary celebration with its collaboration with Bear Walker skateboards.
