Pokemon trading cards went out of style, for casual players, in the early 2000s. Recently, however, the trading card game that started everything has begun to make a comeback. In fact, according to a leaked image, McDonald’s will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of the game by including trading cards with happy meals.
In the last few months, some pokemon cards have sold for exorbitant amounts of money at auction. The first was a Charizard that was purchased by rapper and streamer, Logic, for over $200,000. The second was one of two rare Blastoise cards created by Wizards of the Coast, which sold for $360,000 at auction.
With Pokemon cards seemingly coming back into fashion, McDonald’s is getting back into the action and giving young trainers their first cards with happy meals. As reported by GameRant, Twitter user PokeJungle posted an image of what looks like Pokemon trading cards that McDonald’s may soon be giving away, along with other Pokemon branded toys.
The photo shows what appears to be a wide variety of cards that you have a chance to get from the fast-food chain. The text at the bottom of the image says that four random cards will come with happy meals from “every region,” so you can expect a decent variety. This year is the 25th anniversary of the Pokemon trading card game which started all the way back in 1996, which may be the reason McDonald’s would be handing out new cards. While Pokemon never really died, it truly became part of pop culture once again with the advent of Pokemon Go.
Of course, now we are learning that Pokemon Snap is coming back—a game that was made popular on the N64. As if that weren’t enough of an indication of the game’s enduring fanbase, people have been playing Pokemon Red on Twitter through a user’s avatar. With cards entering the market again, those old cards that you have could come back into style and make you some money.
