      I think I remember reading something that said May 9th or May 19th or…16th? Somewhere in that time frame.

    Psh, these Pokemon toys got nothing on those Burger King ones from back in the day.

    • E.T.993

      Still, unlocking mini-games on the Ipod is pretty cool. It would be a lot better if you could unlock these mini-games on 3DS…Wait.WHY DIDN’T NINTENDO THINK OF THAT!?

    • Kroz

      YOOOO i remember those! I remember for the first movie they had super fun toys, but when pokemon 2000 came out they had these crappy electronic card things…….

    • I forgot about the toys, but I still have the golden Jigglypuff card that came in a Pokeball!

      • Darkwing7

    • Are you talking about these beauties?

      • Zero_Destiny

        Remember buying those way back when and getting all of them for collection sake. lol Still got them in their original boxes somewhere in a box in my basement. XD Thanks for the memories! ^^

        I lost my Mewtwo in the snow. Still as glorious as I remember it looking, though.

        • Namuro

          That sounds like an anime episode, LOL.

          Ash: “What’s wrong?”

          Tylor” I lost my Mewtwo in the snow! Please help me find him!”

      • MrSirFeatherFang

        Wow, I got a few of these for Christmas back in the day. Guess whoever got them for me didn’t have to pay much lol

  • Freakmasta

    Hope Yveltal card has something to counter Pyroar.

  • Ricardo C

    Burger King had these same exact toys for Diamond and Pearl in 2008 but Im not totally sure of these hold the cards (the Pokeball thing on the back holds the cards) but most likely they do.

    • DeepSleeper

      Burger King had Froakie, Pancham, and Yveltal in 2008? Your local Burger King is staffed by time travelers and you must go demand their secrets.

      • Ricardo C

        There is a reason why I said “Diamond and Pearl”.

  • luckgandor

    What about Canada?

    • AJ

      Usually when they say “In the US”, they mean “In the US and English speaking Canada because we can’t afford to make French versions and don’t want to bother saying “Canada” and having to fulfill the bilingual requirements of national promotions”. It just doesn’t fit on the ad.

      • luckgandor

        I was thinking this too, but it’s been so long since I bought a Happy Meal that I don’t remember if we got the same toys. :P
