The official Japanese Pokemon movie website recently updated and has revealed some tidbits about this year’s Pokemon movies and their premiere date.
The titles are now confirmed as Victini and the White Hero: Reshiram and Victini and the Black Hero: Zekrom, and will both premiere on July 16th in Japan.
These two movies will be shown separately in theatres but will share some similarities in respect to the plot.
Some basic plot information was also revealed. Ash, Iris, and Cilan all travel to Aintork to participate in the battle of the harvest festival when they encounter the legendary Pokemon Victini. Based on which movie you see, either Reshiram or Zekrom will appear as the movie progresses. Zekrom appears when it finds the human who is questing for ideal. Reshiram appears when it finds the human who is questing for truth.
So far, Victini has been announced as the special Pokemon to be given away to fans for preordering tickets to the movies. This Victini will know the special powerful attack, V-Generate. Currently, no announcement has been made of which Pokemon will be given away at the movie theatres. Will it be a special Reshiram or Zekrom? How about Keldeo? We’ll update with more information when it comes out!
Thank you to AAPF for the news and translations!
p.s: Anyone else noticed how Snivy is standing on the left near Iris and not with Ash and his group? There’s also an Excadrill on the movie poster. Hmm…
