For the 25th anniversary of the Pokémon series, fans can now look forward to another campaign. In cooperation with McDonald's there will be an exclusive Happy Meal with trading cards for the next few weeks. The campaign started a few days ago in the USA and has sold out Happy Meals in branches. Behind this is a trend that is currently very popular on the Internet.

Even before the McDonald's trading cards, numerous YouTubers and streamers on Twitch bought year-old card packages with booster packs for tens of thousands of euros / US dollars in order to then open them together with their viewers. And in the best case scenario, some of these content creators even made a profit in the end. Selected cards from the Pokémon series can also be sold for thousands of dollars. The decisive factor here is the PSA score, which determines the value of a Pokémon trading card.

Due to the hype, not only children wanted the new Happy Meals, but also countless adults. In the meantime, the cards from the US campaign are also being offered at high prices on eBay. So today the Pokémon campaign starts in Germany as well. We will see in the coming days whether there will be a similar run at the Happy Meals in this country. The trading cards are scheduled to be available by April 7, 2021. Just a few days ago, the Pokémon Company presented numerous new announcements for the 25th anniversary. Including the new editions of Diamant & Perl and Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
