Pokémon The Movie XY & Z is the temporary title of the latest Pokémon movie, which will hit theatres on July 16th in Japan. It will feature Volcanion, which was recently revealed via CoroCoro magazine, and on the official website. This morning, the very first trailer for that movie was shown during the Oha Suta show.
It starts by showing various Pokémon, such as Xerneas, Yveltal, Diancie, Hoopa, Complete Forme Zygarde, and obviously Volcanion itself. Unfortunately, it doesn’t show much, which isn’t all that surprising since the movie won’t be hit theatres for another seven months.
Here’s a recording of the trailer (the official version will be added as soon as it’s available):
Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon
When Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon came out in Japan and North America (in September and November respectively), users buying the game at launch via the Nintendo eShop were able to get a download code for a free Nintendo 3DS Theme. Good news for European fans: a similar offer will also be available in Europe when the game launches, on February 19th!
