UPDATE (August 20th): The Pokemon Match Battle Happy Meal is now confirmed for Australian McDonalds stores. It went live on the Australian website earlier today (as noticed by Vooks).
An exact date isn’t given but we’d expect September at some point. We’ll let you know if we see them pop into stores.
McDonalds has announced that the Pokemon Happy Meal is returning to McDonalds in most countries starting today. Unfortunately, Australia doesn’t look to be on that list, but we’ve asked Maccas to let us know if they plan to bring it to Australia.
The new Pokemon Happy Meal includes new Match Battle Pokemon trading cards as well as the below items:
- 4-Card Booster (each booster pack contains 1 foil card)
- 1 Instruction Sheet
- 1 Coin
- 1 Spinner
- 1 Card Box

As far as cards in the four packs go, we know about the below so far:
The original Pokemon Happy Meal launched last year in October to celebrate Pokemon’s 25th anniversary and included 50 cards to collect. It famously sold out almost instantly worldwide.
