A McDonald's advertisement showing all available toys and TCG cards.

The 2011 McDonald's promotional Pokémon toys were a set of toys distributed at McDonald's restaurants in 2011 and early 2012. Each toy came with one of twelve TCG cards from the McDonald's Collection. This was the first time a Pokémon promotion wasn't held at Burger King, for any country other than Japan. (McDonald's Japan had long held the Pokémon fast food licenses.)

The United States and Canada distributions ran from June 17 to July 7, 2011. In Australia and New Zealand, the distribution began on August 11, 2011 but excluded the Pikachu, Zorua, and Zoroark figures from the promotion. The European distribution ran in various countries during January and February 2012 with Zorua and Zoroark excluded.
