General Mills Cereal Promotion: Holo Pikachu in Every Pack!

So far the General Mills Pokemon packs have been spotted inside specially-marked boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Trix. If this current promotion is like previous ones, they may also come inside Lucky Charms, Cocoa Puffs, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Puffs.

Every booster pack will come with a holo Pikachu. This means it’ll be more common than the set’s non-holo cards!

Because the set has five other holos, you’ll always get two in a pack whenever you pull one: Pikachu and either Galarian Ponyta, Hattena, Wooloo, Morpeko, or Gossifleur. You can see this in a pack opening from our friend Miguel L.:

Galarian Ponyta will be exclusive to Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It’s possible a few of the others will only be inside certain cereals as well.

As posted before, all the cards are reprints. The holos are printed on special General Mills holofoil paper; Pikachu also has the special 25th anniversary stamp. The non-holo cards have nothing special to distinguish them from their original prints (except maybe a sugary scent).

 

We’ll continue to provide the latest details as we learn them, so stay tuned!

    I send a email to General Mills Europe,
    They replied that they didn't plan to make the promotion in Europe.

    They're already out, just not officially (for a few more weeks). Most Walmarts don't care enough to check if they should stock them yet or not, so just check another one.

    My sons bought 3 1/2 cases of CTC (28 boxes) from Walmart. We donated the cereal, as the cards are not inside the inner bag. In addition to the 28 Pikachus, my sons pulled 8 holos - 1 Galarian Ponyta, 3 Hatennas, 2 Wooloo, and 2 Gossifleurs. They'll look to pick up Morpeko from friends. Possibly of note, the 3 cases were untouched and each had 2 holos out of the 8 boxes.

    My pull rate has been 1 in 8. 4 boxes one week, 4 boxes just now. Getting the rest on ebay for sure. This pull rate is silly bad.

    Article says there will be two holos in every pack, but this is not true. There is always a pikachu. But you are not guarunteed one of the other 5 holos in each pack.
