The info booklet included with the toys

In 1998, a set of KFC promotional Pokémon toys were bundled with Kids Meals at KFC in the United States. The toys were available from November 15, 1998 to January 3, 1999.[1] Each toy was quite unique compared to others, unlike the beanbags available to purchase at KFC during the same year. Below are blurbs about all six toys.

Pokémon Card Game

The player who has the most sets of four matching Pokémon wins! For 2-4 players. To play, deal five cards to each player and put the remaining cards in the center of the table face down. The dealer takes his turn first. He asks any other one player for a card to try and match one already in his hand. If the player he asks has one or more of the cards requested, he must give them to the player who asked for them. If the player does not have the card, the player who asked for the card must draw one from the stack in the center of the table. If the card drawn completes a set of four matching Pokémon, he should lay them down in a stack close to him. Play rotates to the left until a player runs out of cards. The player with the most sets wins! Good luck! Not suitable for children under 36 months.
