Zoroark: Master of Illusions (Japanese: 幻影の覇者 ゾロアークRuler of Illusions: Zoroark) is the 13th Pokémon movie. It was released on July 10, 2010 in Japan. Acording to Pokémon.com the movie will be out in America on Februrary 5th, 2011.
Meanwhile, Ash, Brock, and Dawn arrive in Crown City to attend the annual Pokémon Backer World Cup when they encounter the Pokémon? Zorua who is looking for its mom. They allow Zorua to travel with them until the town begins to be attacked by the Legendary Pokémon, Raikou, Entei, and Suicune, revealed to be disguises assumed by Zorua's mom, Zoroark. Soon after, the legendary Celebi appears from 20 years in the future due to an impending disaster that befalls Crown City. It has been confirmed that the Legendary Beasts in the movie will be shiny. It has also been revealed that Zoroark is not the true villian of the movie. Kodai is the villian of the movie due to the fact that he blackmailed Zoroark into destroying Crown City. Zorua escapes from his kidnapper (Kodai) but his mother (Zoroark) does not know this. Everyone including the Pokémon of Crown City believe that Zoroark is evil. The Pokémon became hostile towards Zorua until Celebi stops them and made friends with Zorua.
It is the most anticipated event of the year and, as hundreds flock to Crown City to watch the exciting competition unfold, Ash and his friends encounter a mysterious new Pokémon they have never seen before.
But when the three Legendary Pokémon Raikou, Entei and Suicune suddenly arrive and begin rampaging through the streets, it's up to Ash and his companions, along with their new Pokémon friend Zorua, to uncover the secret behind the immense and powerful forces at work.
What strange and dangerous powers are afoot in Crown City? Why did Celebi suddenly return after vanishing for twenty years? And why is the mighty Zoroark unleashing its fury upon the town? The quest for these answers leads down an uncertain path filled with peril--can Ash and his companions find enough courage, strength and friendship to unearth the mystery in time to save Crown City?
This is considered one of the darkest Pokémon films, with having a shockingly evil antagonist, a more focused story driven plot, Kodai near fatally choking a Celebi, and the first on screen near fatal Pokémon death that was intentionally caused. And it hardly had any Pokémon battles.
