The Pokemon Company and McDonalds are teaming up for a range of Pokémon-themed Happy Meals starting this month.
The Happy Meal program, which will run from November 27th until December 23rd, will feature eight Pokémon toys based on some of the fan-favorites seen in Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire. The eight figures include: Pikachu, Primal Groudon, Primal Kyogre, Lugia, Rayquaza, Mega Latios, and Wobbuffet.
In addition to a toy, the Happy Meals will also include one of 12 Pokémon Trading Card Game cards. This promotion is also currently the only way that gamers in the US can get their hands on the mythical mischief Pokémon Hoopa. Hoopa will be obtainable via the Nintendo Zone application on the 3DS while located inside a participating McDonald’s restaurant.
Hoopa is compatible with Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. If you currently own one of the latter two titles, however, you’ll be able to change Hoopa’s form from Confined to Unbound.
Players in the UK can obtain Hoopa via a code distribution at participating GAME retailers. The promotion runs in the UK from October 23rd until November 5th.
