We’re all used to seeing McDonald’s signature red Happy Meal box. But this season, each Pokémon Match Battle Happy Meal comes in a special limited edition yellow Pikachu-themed box, complete with the signature mascot’s pointy ears and red cheeks.

You can choose between a cheeseburger or 4-piece McNuggets meal from $5.50, with fries, apple slices or cup corn as a side. As for beverage options you’re free to choose from any of the drinks McDonald’s offers.  

Grab a happy meal and begin your journey into the Pokémon TCG

Whether you only played Pokémon way back when there were only 150 critters, or can name all 1,008 creatures from today’s Pokédex by heart, a Pokémon Match Battle Happy Meal has everything you need to get started with the trading card game. 

Who knows, you might be the first Singaporean to take home the $25,000 grand prize at next year’s World Championship and finally achieve that childhood dream of being a Pokémon Master. 

There will be 2 different packs released every Thursday until 29th November, so mark your calendars if you plan to catch ‘em all. Bonus: You can order this happy meal via McDelivery, GrabFood and foodpanda too.
