Pikachu Is Back At McDonald’s!

Sometimes a single tweet can change your life forever…

It’s no secret I’m a huge Pokemon fan and actually think my fandom has grown as I’ve become a parent as it gives me something to connect, bond and share with my kids. So this news feels like it’s going to be a big deal in my house.

One of the popular partnerships includes Pokemon Happy Meals, which have returned multiple times with refreshed toys. This time around, the iconic Pikachu Happy Meal box is making a return, replacing the standard box with one resembling Pikachu, including its ears sticking up over the top of the box. Inside, fans can expect to find the usual Happy Meal fare, plus a random Pokemon card. This time around, the Pokemon TCG Giveaway includes Pikachu, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet starters Sprigatito, Quaxly, and Fuecoco, as well as Klawf and Cetitan. Pokemon Happy Meals are rolling out across the US as of this writing, and will be available through October 3, or until supplies run out. – per GameRant.com

Some fans are already sharing what the displays look like at their local McDicks and let’s be honest, it’s glorious.

Now that the long-rumoured return is back, don’t be surprised to see the occasional 40-year-old leaving McDonald’s with a few Happy Meals and no kids. We’re just trying to catch ’em all.
