You Can Totally Get Pikachu at the Drive-Thru

Pikachu flexes his corporate muscles and demonstrates the ever-growing power of Pokemon.

Yes, for a limited time only you can get Pokemon Black and White figures with your Happy Meal(tm) at McDonald’s.

The figures include the two legendary Pokemon from the games, Reshiram and Zekrom, the two special event Pokemon, Zorua and Zoroark, along with the three starter Pokemon, Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott.

And, of course, Pikachu.  You cannot have a Pokemon event without giving the chairman of the Pokemon board his due.  You might think Ash Ketchum is Pikachu’s trainer, but really he is Pikachu’s man servant.  He goes where Pikachu tells him because if you piss Pikachu off, you are totally off the show.

You also get a foil pack of Pokemon TCG cards.  I hear that is popular in some quarters.

There is even a TV commercial, which Nintendo has helpfully uploaded to YouTube but which I could not bring myself to embed in the post.  It just isn’t that good.

And as these things go, available at participating McDonald’s in cities that haven’t banned Happy Meals through July 7th or while supplies last or until somebody sues again.
