Pokémon X & Y Themed Toys Coming Down Under To McDonald's
Posted by Liam Doolan
Better known as Maccas in Australia
Aussie Nintendo fans will no doubt remember a golden period during 2012 when fully grown adults reverted to children Australia-wide, all because the international fast-food chain McDonald's released an exclusive set of Happy Meal toys based on the Pokémon Black & White series. Not to mention each toy bundled with one of twelve Pokémon Trading Cards.
Fast forward to 2014, and a relatively similar promotion is once again doing the rounds at Australian Maccas nationwide. This time the focus is on the X & Y series, with a total of 8 toys and 12 cards to collect – certainly a step up on the previous offering which didn't include as many toys.
Rather than figurines with unique features though, this time the toys are basically spin disc Pokéballs that fire Pokémon ranging from the iconic Pikachu, to one of the latest legendary monsters on the block, Xerneas. The cards themselves are based on the available toys, and as with all McDonald's promotions this deal is for a limited time only with each Happy Meal purchase.
For all those Aussies out there, let us know if you'll be heading into your local Maccas to pick up one – or all – of these Pokémon toys and trading cards.
