An image on the current promotion of McDonald’s Happy Meals confirms that a Pokemon promotion is coming to the UK on 19 May 2021.
In February, McDonald’s in North America launched a Pokemon TCG promotion including the 24 starters and Pikachu from all generations of Pokemon.
This promotion led to an influx in scalping with cases of the packs selling for huge amounts on eBay and children unable to get toys with their Happy Meal purchases.
An image shared on social media shows that McDonald’s UK will be implementing a “Fair Ordering Policy” where customers can only purchase one additional toy alongside the purchase of a Happy Meal. This is to try and combat bulk purchasing for resale benefits as seen when this promotion launched in the United States.
The photo also confirms that the promotion will run from 19 May to 8 June 2021.
We can now reveal the toys that will be packaged in the Happy Meals releasing 19 May 2021 in the UK. These will be on a one per order basis with the ability to purchase 1 extra per happy meal in accordance with the “fair ordering policy” revealed last month.
