As we mentioned earlier in the week, it’s incredibly hard to find McDonald’s Pokemon TCG Happy Meals right now. Fans are going absolutely nuts for the collectibles, scooping up as many packages as they can find. There’s also scalpers who are buying Happy Meals in bulk and selling the trading cards on eBay and other auction sites.
While McDonald’s certainly loves the attention, they’re not happy with the current situation. They’ve released a statement on the matter discussing their plans to fix things. You can read their entire statement below.
“We love seeing fans’ passion for our limited-time Happy Meal promotion celebrating 25 years of Pokemon. With such significant demand for our promotional Pokemon TCG cards, and some fans even going to extreme lengths to get them, we’re working quickly to address shortages and also strongly encouraging restaurants to set a reasonable limit on Happy Meals sold per customer. We want to offer the full Happy Meal experience to as many families as possible, and help ensure everyone is able to get in on the fun!”
