The 1998 Burger King Promotional Pokémon Toys were a set of toys distributed with Kids Meals at Burger King in 1998. All toys were paired with a trading card, which were made exclusively for this promotion. The toys were used to promote Pokémon: The First Movie. There were also a set of 23 karat gold cards which came in Poké Balls that were available to buy at the restaurant chain that year. There were 6 gold cards in total.

Gold Cards

The gold cards came in a blue box, with images of the Pokémon, the card, and the whole set of cards. The card is a thick piece of gold in a plastic cover, with a picture on the front and back, and Pokédex data on the back. It also came with a certificate of authenticity signed by the chairman of NOA at the time. Both the card and the certificate are contained in a plastic Poké Ball with a shiny red top, with a button for opening and closing.
