    Even worse... back when BK gave out these Pokeball things with Pokemon in them, kids were suffocating on the ball halves! (I remember hearing about it on the news) Man I liked those things though.

    But ehh... I hope you don't think the mass production costs for lv.xs is really that expensive... no way it actually costs anywhere near that to make them. I don't know any actual figures, but it is probably very cheap for Pokemon to make cards even with intricate holofoils.


    I remember going to BK to get the toys, especially the Pokemon ones. I remember the cardboard cutout trading card sheets and the golden cards and all that cool stuff. It's nice that a new generation gets something similar too.

    What? The only reason lvl.x's cost so much is due to rarity of the printed card. If they wanted to they could make lvl.x's commons and widely available (hence the tins) it's really hardly anything to do with the actual production costs of the card itself.

    BK and pokemon would end up mass producing (most probably alternate art versions) these cards and it would cost them next to nothing.

    More players is only a good thing, even if they turn out to be burger munching net decking fat kids.

    I remember first getting started in liking pokemon. I went to BK and got my first pokemon toy, a Kabuto. This should attract fans just as it attracted me about 7years ago.

    I gave up fast food for subs about 3+ years ago, but this story is making me hungry.

    forget the cards they'll probably all suck. i curious to see what "card accessories" they will have, sleeves, deckboxs, idk but this might end up being really tight.

    Meh, they'll probably have damage counters as the 'accessories'.

    They better not include damage counters with edible meals. That's a law suit in the works.

    Most chains will offer the toy from the kids meal for a dollar or two so you dont have to buy the food.

    Sounds great to me, it could be some lovely lv. X people, remember most of the cards that are promo's are quite crappy, bar a few, In most cases they just look very cool.

    I hope it will be in Europe to, can't wait :D

    Cheers,
