McDonald’s 2023 Pokemon TCG Promotion Starts in August: First Cards Revealed!

We’ve learned McDonald’s annual Pokemon TCG promotion will start in Germany and Austria on July 27th and in the UK on August 23rd! This means it should also come to the United States and other countries within the next month or two.

This year’s cards have already been released at some locations in Germany. As usual, the set will feature 15 reprinted cards. All of them come from Scarlet & Violet except Pikachu, which comes from Paldea Evolved.

Of the 15, six will be holo: Sprigatito, Fuecoco, Quaxly, Cetitan, Pikachu, and Klawf. These will be the first McDonald’s promos to feature foil borders. They will use confetti holofoil like past McDonald’s promos.

As usual you’ll get a booster pack and toy when purchasing a Happy Meal. Each booster pack will come with four promo cards, one of which is holo. This year’s toy will be a “Match & Battle” toy like last year, but with an updated design.

The full set list is as follows:

001/015 Sprigatito
002/015 Fuecoco
003/015 Quaxly
004/015 Cetoddle
005/015 Cetitan
006/015 Pikachu
007/015 Pawmi
