If you love Pikachu, then you would probably love the latest promotion announced for McDonald's restaurants in Japan. As of next week, the fast-food giant will be offering "limited-time" Pikachu-themed sweets and Happy Meal Toys. According to 4Gamer (via Nintendo Enthusiast), there'll be a "Fruits-chu" trio of sweets.
The first is a peach-flavored shake available in six different Pikachu-themed cups. The second item is a choco-banana McFlurry. It's soft-serve ice cream with banana, chocolate syrup and some crushed nuts. And last but not least is the hot apple custard pie. It might go down well with that McFlurry.
In addition to these sweet items, there'll be some special Pokémon toys up for grabs in Happy Meals. On June 11 onwards there's the “Pikachu Balance Challenge,” “Pikachu Dash,” and “Pikachu Dunk” toy. And from June 17 onwards, trainers can get their hands on the “Pikachu Get! Ball Attack,” “Pikachu Trick Ring Toss” and “Pikachu Janken Attack”.
This promotion is exclusive to Japan, so don't expect to see this same deal offered in the west any time soon.
All of them sound really tasty tbh. Although missed opportunity for yellow dyed patties.
And here I though I was going to be able to actually eat Pikachu....😔
In Japan, McDonald's mascot Ronald McDonald is known by a totally different name: Donald McDonald.
You're welcome 😊
Bro, That soft served ice cream thing actually sounds pretty tasty.
They're not just Krabby Patties, they're Pretty Patties!
Fun Fact: There's likely a restaurant in the Pokémon universe that sells Pikachu meat. So maybe one day a restaurant in our universe will sell Pikachu meat. For now we have to eat these alternatives at Japanese McDonald's.
@Aliteralturnip Good luck finding soft serve Pikachu ice cream. There's a higher chance of finding a Mewtwo than a McDonald's with a working ice cream machine.
@everynowandben It is.
And all Americans get is the "BTS meal" (just 10 nuggets and fries in purple packaging)???
Thanks again for tuning into today's episode of "Japan Gets All The Cool Stuff"
Haven't they done this sevetal times before? I feel like I've read this exact article before. (Genuine question, not snark)
Better than having Pokemon cards that a bunch of shameless 40 year old men rush to McDonald's to buy every copy of, throw away the food and then sell online for 50 dollars or more a copy. Thus forcing the employees and parents to explain to kids "Sorry you can't get your Pikachu card, that piece of human trash just came in here, bought them all before you even saw a commercial for them"
You made me think that they were going to make a pikachu looking patty, like they ate a pikachu or somthin.
Those toys 😆
"Here's some junk we found in a warehouse that we can just slap a Pikachu sticker on"
Didn’t NL do an article about eating Pokémon not that long ago?
Has been in Hong Kong for a few weeks now.
Also a Pikachu yakiniku burger, and tonkatsu burger.
@nessisonett I understood this reference
Yet another reason to feel depressed about Japan getting everything
Wish i was in Japan right now. Would try all of these
Japan still gets proper McDonalds toys, yet the UK now has "plastic free" ones. Not fair. I've been waiting for those Rubik's ones Australia got last year to come here, but it seems unlikely now.
Oh man I want to eat all those things!
I want that Pikachu McFlurry
I came here only for the food. The toys as like the others are usualy mediocre.
[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6eNu7ItXAY] This is how I would imagine it to taste
@SuperCharr McDonalds are different in Japan like in the other countries. Even their food standards are stricter than USA.
Wait, when they say pikachu is on the menu, do they mean they're literally on the menu...
like he's in the food?
Pie and ice cream please.
