Promotions were held at different times depending upon country:

Pokémon Match Battle

Each Happy Meal included an envelope with the components to play Pokémon Match Battle; a pack of four pre-selected TCG cards from the McDonald's Collection 2023, a cardboard coin, and instructions. Printed on the coin are six symbols, five of which correspond to a stat shown on each Pokémon Trading Card, and the sixth denoting a reverse in the direction of play.

To start the game, each player is given one of the four cards (up to four players can play with each pack) and the youngest player goes first, with play then continuing in a clockwise direction. The coin is flipped to decide if highest or lowest stat wins that turn, with heads being high and tails being low. The corner of the coin pointing to player determines which of the five stats will be compared. Each player then examines their card to see who has the highest or lowest score, depending on the result of the coin flip. However, if the spinner lands on the change of direction symbol, the direction of play is instead reversed to the previous player, and they take their turn instead. The player with the highest or lowest score each turn wins a point, and the first player to reach three points wins.

The stats that can be compared are HP, weight, height, Pokédex number or card number.

Digital Play

Digital games could be played by scanning a QR code on a card that was also included in the envelope.

The game involved an hexagonal jigsaw puzzle, with the player given a score out of three stars depending on how many moves they took to complete the puzzle.
