Earlier this week, we reported on the Pokemon 25th Anniversary Happy Meal tie-in at Mcdonald’s, and how there have been a number reports of shortages due to high demand from avid collectors and opportunistic scalpers.
In a statement released to IGN, a spokesperson from Mcdonald’s said that the restaurant chain is aware of the problem and is taking steps to address the shortages as well as encourage their outlets to set limits on the number of Happy Meals sold per person.
You can read the full statement for yourself below:
“We love seeing fans’ passion for our limited-time Happy Meal promotion celebrating 25 years of Pokemon. With such significant demand for our promotional Pokemon TCG cards, and some fans even going to extreme lengths to get them, we’re working quickly to address shortages and also strongly encouraging restaurants to set a reasonable limit on Happy Meals sold per customer. We want to offer the full Happy Meal experience to as many families as possible, and help ensure everyone is able to get in on the fun!”
