Now that Pokémon the Movie: Hoopa and the Clash of Ages has been released in Japan, more people have seen the teaser trailer for the currently-untitled Pokémon Movie to be released in 2016. The teaser contains the scenes revealed in the recent CoroCoro issue, but another mysterious Pokémon has been seen, reported to be bright green.
Tweets from @denkimouse of Sunyshore.com show sketches of what the Pokémon is said to look like. Official images have yet to be revealed.
Here's another tweet about how the scene unfolded:
The August 2015 issue of CoroCoro has begun leaking, and contained inside is a teaser for the Pokémon Movie for 2016 (currently unnamed). It's extremely brief, showing three images reported to be included in the teaser trailer at the end of the Hoopa and the Clash of Ages movie to be released in Japan next week.
The Japanese text says "!? Is- Is this a new Pokémon?!", suggesting that whatever is shown on the screen may be a new Pokémon — or, perhaps a new form of an existing Pokémon, such as the legendary Pokémon Zygarde, which has yet to make an appearance in the anime series (including the movies) or the Pokémon Trading Card Game.
Below is the same image after some image enhancements have been applied, which reveal the "new Pokémon" possesses claws, two large arms, and gigantic things on its back that run down along its sides. Click the image below to zoom in on it.
Looking for something to watch over the weekend? You're in luck, because The Pokémon Company International is offering a nostalgic trip into the roots of the Pokémon anime by releasing Pokémon: The First Movie, in addition to the entirety of Season 1 of the Pokémon Anime, onto its free Pokémon TV platform.
You can tune into Pokémon TV in a variety of places, including the official Pokémon website, via the Pokémon TV App on iOS or Android devices, or via the Pokémon TV channel on Roku or Amazon Fire devices. Pokémon TV is entirely free and requires no registration to view the movie or these episodes, making them incredibly convenient to watch. There are also several other select episodes available to watch for free on the app — the selection changes rather often, though, so keep that in mind.
After months of suspense, the Mythical Pokémon Diancie is finally making its debut this afternoon on Cartoon Network at 2:30pm Pacific and Eastern Time(1:30pm Central Time) in the newest Pokémon movie, Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction!
Before the movie airs, though, you'll also be able to watch five select Pokémon episodes from Diamond and Pearl: Galactic Battles, Diamond and Pearl: Sinnoh League Victors, and Black and White: Rival Destinies to get you pumped for the newest movie as well as Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. These episodes start at 12:00pm PST/EST(1:00pm CST) and run until the movie airs later in the afternoon.
Excited for the movie? Just can't wait? Well, you're in luck, because there's an exclusive short film on the official website that you can watch in the meantime: Diancie: Princess of the Diamond Domain! Head on over to the official website to watch it there!
While the Mythical Pokémon Diancie was unveiled back in late February, we haven't heard much about the Jewel Pokémon since then. However, Pokémon has unveiled the English name of the 17th Pokémon Movie — Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction — and has released a trailer to go along with it, which can be viewed above.
The Japanese release date is July 19th, 2014. The US and international release dates, as well as distribution platforms, have yet to be announced, but with Pokémon's recent dealings with both Netflix and Hulu, it's possible we may see the new movie there as well as the usual Cartoon Network and Pokémon TV outlets.
In this week's Pokémon Update, Jess reflects on the recent Twitch Plays Pokémon phenomenon as they progress from Pokémon Red to Pokémon Crystal, takes a look at the results of the Pokémon X & Y beta tournament, and checks out which episodes of the Pokémon anime and movies are now available on Netflix. Enjoy!
Additionally, entries to the recent Pokémon X & Y Booster Box giveaway closed a few days ago; the winners are in the process of being selected and will be notified via Curse once it is done. Thanks for participating and I look forward to holding more giveaways in the future!
Yesterday's announcement showing off Mewtwo transforming into its new "Awakened" form definitely roused some discussion amongst fans, speculating as to what it could mean. Additionally, the official Japanese Pokémon YouTube channel released a trailer for the upcoming Genesect and Mewtwo movie shortly thereafter. The above video shows my impressions of these new developments, where I talk about the new Mewtwo form as well as new scenes of the eighth Eevee evolution, Sylveon, from the Japanese trailer.
Looking for the new Japanese movie trailer? You can check it out below! Just keep in mind that it's, of course, in Japanese.
Images of more promotional posters for the upcoming Pokémon movie, Godspeed/ExtremeSpeed Genesect and the Reawakening of Mewtwo, have been posted to the Japanese message board, 2ch. The exciting thing about these posters is that they show a new form for Mewtwo.
Two images were posted showing off the new form, which you can see above. While these have yet to be confirmed, checking out the Japanese Pokémon Movie website shows a suspicious empty space beneath Mewtwo while showing Genesect's alternate forms (the different Drives for it).
It appears that the two hexagons beneath Mewtwo are meant to include its alternate form once it is officially revealed. The fact that there are two hexagons beneath Mewtwo may perhaps indicate that Mewtwo will receive a second alternate form in addition to the one shown above, although this is solely speculation stemming from the fact there are two hexagons beneath Mewtwo positioned similarly to the four rectangles beneath the Red Genesect, which show off Genesect's alternate forms.
It's still possible this could be a hoax, as it is yet to be confirmed, but the fact that the official movie website shows that extra space beneath Mewtwo suggests that it may indeed be true.

Two new video trailers have been uploaded to the official Japanese Pokémon YouTube channel showing scenes from the upcoming movie, translated as Godspeed/Extremespeed Genesect and the Reawakening of Mewtwo. The first, shown above, shows one of the Genesect from the movie attacking Ash in a city, with Mewtwo flying in to save him.
The second video is a longer video, showing several Genesect in a dark lab with a mysterious voice speaking, then showing extended scenes from the first video. It also shows a little more of the special video that will be aired beforehand, Pikachu & Eevee Friends, which features Pikachu, Meowth, Eevee, and all of Eevee's evolutions, including the newly revealed Sylveon. It doesn't reveal too much more about Sylveon, though, but you do at least get to see it in anime form.
Godspeed/Extremespeed Genesect and the Reawakening of Mewtwo and Pikachu & Eevee Friends will be released in theaters in Japan on July 13th, 2013. No word yet when this will be released outside of Japan, though.
(NOTE: 神速 literally translates to "Godspeed," and there is an attack by the same name in Japanese; this attack name was changed to "Extremespeed" in the English versions, although it does not convey the same meaning. That is why both translations are included.)
Pokémon TV has gotten a lot more awesome! First and foremost, you can now download the Pokémon TV app from either the Apple App Store or from Google's Play Store to watch a variety of Pokémon TV episodes from the comfort of your mobile device or tablet. That is definitely pretty great and worth checking out!
The recent Pokémon Movie, Kyurem vs. The Sword of Justice, featuring Keldeo and Kyurem, is available for a limited time on Pokémon TV. You can watch it on the official website or on the aforementioned app, but only until February 18th, so if you want a free screening of Kyurem vs. The Sword of Justice, now is your chance to watch it!
Not only that, but Pokémon TV is also featuring the never-before-released-in-English Meloetta's Moonlight Serenade short feature, starring the Pokémon Meloetta. The Japanese releases of movies are usually accompanied by a short feature before the movie airs, similar to how Pikachu's Vacation from Pokémon The Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back was way back. A lot of these shorts haven't been released outside of Japan, so it is great to see Pokémon stepping up and releasing the Meloetta's Moonlight Serenade short. You can watch it on Pokémon TV at your leisure until March 24th.
Also be sure to check out this week's Pokémon Update from Curse, which talks a bit about the newest Eevee evolution, Sylveon! You can watch the video on YouTube by clicking the image above.
While it's been a bit of a slow news week on the Pokémon X and Y front and with several of the larger Trading Card Game and Video Game tournaments winding down this month, it's the Pokémon Anime's turn to get an update! The Pokémon Anime is now entering its newest season, BW Adventures in Unova, starting this Saturday at 8:30am (7:30am Central Time) on Cartoon Network.
On top of that, there's a Pokémon marathon taking place Sunday, February 3rd on Cartoon Network, with several exciting episodes from the previous season, BW Rival Destinies, as well as a showing of the latest Pokémon movie, Pokémon the Movie: Kyurem vs. The Sword of Justice. Finally, at the tail end of the marathon, Saturday's episode from BW Adventures in Unova will be shown once again. This marathon begins at 11:00am (10:00am Central Time) and will go on for four hours.
On another note, the Keldeo distribution mentioned in a previous update is now live, so if you haven't picked up Keldeo already over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection on Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2, now would be a great time to do so! The event lasts until February 12th and is available in all international regions.
Shown above is the Japanese trailer for the upcoming Pokemon movie, Godspeed Genesect(神速のゲノセクト; 神速 [しんそく] is the name of ExtremeSpeed in Japanese, although its exact Japanese definition is "godspeed"). In the trailer, you can see a peculiar Genesect flying around and wreaking havoc in the middle of a city. It is not just any ordinary Genesect, though: it is a Shiny Genesect, whichis evident due to its red color. You can also see a regular Genesect briefly in the first few seconds of the trailer, suggesting that the Shiny Genesect is not the only one featured in the movie.
Not all that much is revealed in the trailer, unfortunately, although a release date — July 13th, 2013 — was announced for Japan, along with the title of the special short movie that often accompanies the Japanese Pokemon movies: Pikachu & Eevee Friends (ピカチュウとイーブイフレンス).
Additionally, according to a scan of CoroCoro, there will be a Japanese event giving out Genesect to any fifth generation Pokemon game from January 11th, 2013 to February 10th, 2013, although it is not shiny and is not available over Wi-Fi, meaning you'll have to visit one of the Pokemon Centers in Japan in order to receive it.
