Soon you'll be able to get Pokemon X and Y toys in a McDonald's Happy Meal

Fast food fans in the US will soon get Pokemon toys with their burger, fries, and a soft drink.

If you're in the US and completely gutted about the fact that you missed out the Mario McDonald's Happy Meals, well, maybe this will cheer you up: American branches of the fast food giant will soon be offering up a Pokemon Happy Meal. Pokemon!

After the current Spider-Man Happy Meal promotion comes to an end, Nintendo will usher in a selection of toys from Pokemon X and Y. The twelve lucky Pokemon chosen to be randomly sandwiched between a burger and fries are Pikachu, Mewtwo, Xerneas, Yvetal, Charizard, Blastoise, Ivysaur, Fennekin, Froakie, Chespin, Pancham, and Helioptile.

Customers of the kid-focused value meal will also get to snap up a trading card, and scan their toys in with McDonald's McPlay Power app.

And, you know, you get the meal.

All a prelude to the New "Big-Mac Attakasaurus" Pokémon to be featured in Sapphire and Ruby Remake.

Gabe Newell should enjoy this.  Although he doesn't care for the fries too much.

I got a similar toy a long long long time ago from Burger King. Surprised they're doing this again.

Kind of cool though the toys look kind of lame from what the picture shows. They aren't even figurines more like plastic cutouts...

UGH. Parents making their fat kids even fatter. All for some stupid toys. Very nice "parenting" there! Why not cook them a healthy home cooked meal, & buy them toys that aren't part of some company's "Get richer quicker scheme" Would that be against the law? Is that idea SO bad? Good luck to these little kids that already need to be on a life saving diet. It will be that much harder for them, because mommy & daddy always said it was ok, to eat junk food. Why not just allow them to be given candy from a total stranger on the street? Society has no limits to being manipulated. Society has no standards, so society is losing.

You know where I would love to see Pokemon? On Vita. I know Satoru Iwata will pour petrol over himself and light himself on fire on the internet before that happens but I would definitely support the franchise if it did.

The pokemon might be a little naff now but the RPG elements to the game are still pretty awesome.

I miss the days when I good look at any Pokemon and name it... These new 150 (or however many they've added) have just spoilt everything

@Faye_Tallity  Growing up with two other brothers raised by a single mom working and going to college didn't really leave a lot of room for a home cooked meal back in the day.  I guess things must be different now.

@Faye_Tallity Which kids need to be on a life saving diet? Do you really think home cooked meals are against the law? What about single parent families that don't have both a mommy & daddy? Why do you support strangers giving out candy to children? If society has no limits to being manipulated, what is the underlying focus of your post?

@chev9390 Use those connections! Its not everyday you can say you have connections at McD's and you scored all those pokemon toys.

@chev9390  Man up and order 12 happy meals all at once instead! Earn those toys, one meal at a time!

Sony has Digimon even though Digimon is not a Sony exclusive and it's as close to Pokemon as Sony's ever going to get.

Those gold plated cards from BK were no joke. I remember being flabbergasted at how expensive those things felt for something you got out of a kid's meal.

@shinjuki  By spoilt everything I don't mean literally.. I just miss not being able to look at any and name them.. That's what's been spoilt... I just can't keep up

@BelaidKL @shinjuki  Hell I played all of Platinum and collected every pokemon and still can't name most of them.

Now there is Black/White/X/Y to contend with.
