Anime News

XYZ 2016 movie

Info on the movie for this year has been released. Here are two exerts:

This is the first:

A Pokémon fell from the sky!

Ash and his friends are continuing on their journey to become Pokémon Masters when, suddenly, a lump obscured in white smoke tumbles from the sky. While enveloping the surrounding area in white smoke, a figure emerges from the center. It’s the Mythical Pokémon Volcanion.

Ash and friends are concerned as the human-hating Volcanion immediately turns to take its leave. However, a shock wave from above causes Ash and Volcanion to be connected by a mysterious device, and they can’t separate themselves!

Volcanion runs off dragging Ash along with him, and they eventually reach Azoth Kingdom, a mechanized city with many large rotating gears.

Why did Volcanion fall from the sky?

And why is it placing its sights on Azoth Kingdom!?

The mechanized kingdom becomes the stage as the hottest legend in Pokémon history begins!

This is the second:

What is the power concealed in Volcanion's arm!?

It's said that its steam can knock over a mountain, and it can also conceal Volcanion's body in thick fog.

The arm displays a complete range of movement, and the steam produced from the arm when it splits in two packs a punch! Unlike any Pokémon that have been introduced so far, it has both Fire and Water typing, and the water-absorbing mouth on its arm can produce both Water and Fire-type attacks. Also, the blue in the windows on top of its arm seems to be connected with the amount of water stored in its body.

Because of the water and fire, it can produce explosive steam inside its body, but when attacking it seems like water is Volcanion’s primary energy source.
