McDonald's Pokémon toys

Japanese McDonald's stores will once more be giving away Pokémon toys in their Happy Meals, the Pokémon Company has reported.

Toys depicting Pikachu, Victini, Thundurus, and Zekrom will be given away starting Dec. 16. Oshawott, Reshiram, Landorus, and Tornadus toys will be given away starting Dec. 23. The event is currently scheduled to last about three weeks.

This is not the first McDonald's promotional campaign this year for the Pokémon franchise. In June and July, twelve different Pokémon Cards were given away as a part of the McDonald's Collection and eight toys were given away as a part of the 2011 McDonald's Promotional Pokémon Toys.

In related news, the official Pokémon calendar for 2012 is now on sale. It comes with a sheet of stickers for all of the Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex and can be bought at Japanese McDonald's stores. This calendar is a traditional end-of-year promotion and once received a Guinness World Record.

Update:  A Danish McDonald's promotion is also currently running. Beginning on Dec. 9 and ending Jan. 6, six Pokémon figures can be collected with Happy Meals. This is not the same promotion as is presently available in Japan and is partnered with a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic promotion.[1]
