As the warm July sunshine streaming through our windows, we find ourselves taking a moment to reminisce about sweet summer memories of years past, such as the time we ate several Pikachu McFlurries at McDonald’s. But life is all about moving forward, and so it’s time for us to focus on the here and now…in the form of these awesome Pokemon Happy Meals which are just about to go on sale!
McDonald’s Japan has just unveiled its extensive lineup of Pokemon toys to be included with Happy Meal (or “Happy Set,” as it’s called in Japan) orders starting this week. Naturally, franchise mascot Pikachu is heavily represented, with goodies including a key chain that doubles as a tail-slapping disc shooter that lets you take down Team Rocket cutouts and a propeller toy.

Since the Pokemon Happy Meals are being offered through midsummer, it makes sense for one to be something to help you stay cool, which is the job of the Poke Ball water pistol, pictured below next to the Eevee spinning top.
▼ The Poke Ball water pistol is also billed as for target practice use, but it’s also a way to stealthily squirt your friends.
Pikachu gets one more moment in the spotlight with the Pikachu balance puzzle. The starting Pokemon of the Sun and Moon arc of the franchise are accounted for as well, with a Rowlet spinning top and disc shooters for Popplio and Litten.
There’s even a special Pokemon-themed box, decked out with multiple Pikachus and Eevees, plus the Poke Ball motif in McDonald’s familiar red and gold, which you can fold into a flat tray (and perhaps use it as an arena for the Eevee and Rowlet spinning discs to battle one another).
The Pokemon Happy Meals go on sale July 6, and will be available for a limited, as-yet undetermined time.
