Recent updates to the movie 17 website

Comments: 0
A number of updates have been made to the movie website in recent days, including a new plot summary and details on the Diancie event. Translations follow:

Story Pick-Up Guide

The Great Destruction and the Life Pokémon

Once upon a time, the "Great Destruction" took place, eradicating all life in the Kalos region.

The Great Destruction was brought upon by Yveltal, the "Destruction Pokémon" said to rob everything of life. After destroying everything, Yveltal turned into a "Cocoon of Destruction", in which form it still sleeps today.

When this Great Destruction took place, the only one rivaling Yveltal's power was Xerneas, the "Life Pokémon". Xerneas was said to bestow life to people and Pokémon.

Now, the journey to meet with these two grand legendary Pokémon of the Kalos region begins...

The Sacred Diamond and Diancie

"Diamond Ore Country." The land where the "Jewel Pokémon" Melecie live in peace and prosperity. It is located deep underground, and no one knows its exact location. In this country, a giant diamond known as the "Sacred Diamond" can be found...

For ages, the Sacred Diamond has played the role of an important energy resource, which keeps the ore country going. The only being with the power to create this type of diamond is princess Diancie herself. However, Diancie does not yet possess this power. And... time is starting to run out.

The Sacred Diamond's lifespan is about to run out. When that happens, the beautiful ore country is going to perish!

Having encountered Satoshi and Pikachu, Diancie sets out on a journey to save her country; a journey in search of the "Life Pokémon" Xerneas, seeking its sacred power.

The Thieves Chasing Diancie

Having encountered Satoshi and Pikachu, Diancie sets out on a journey to save her country; a journey in search of the "Life Pokémon" Xerneas, seeking its sacred power.

On their way, they get attacked by the female thief "Marilyn Flame" and the ninja thief "Ninja Riot", who seek Diancie's power to create diamonds. Diancie gets into really big trouble when the Rocket Gang gets involved as well!! However, they get saved by the mysterious father and daughter duo Algus and Miriss, who suddenly show up, and somehow manage to continue onward. And Diancie, who has lived her entire life as a princess, feels what friendship is for the very first time, growing a bit in the process...

The group continues onwards, guided by the Fairy Aura Xerneas emits, until they eventually reach the forbidden Alearth Woods, where all life was once eradicated.

Director Yuyama's Location Scouting Report

This time, Director Yuyama chose Canada as the country he would go scouting in. He went there in search of the landscapes where Yveltal would sleep, where Xerneas would hide, and Diancie would journey.

Part 7: The Thousand Islands

After eating lunch at an Italian restaurant along the highway, we set off for the Skydeck Tower, where one can get a look down at the Thousand Islands. The Thousand Islands are a group of more than 1500 islands scattered through the Saint Lawrence River downstream from Lake Ontario. The Skydeck Tower lets you look down at them from 400 feet's height (roughly 120 meters).

The elevator ride to the top took 40 seconds, and when the door opened, a beautiful, dream-like 360 degree scenery spread out before us as far as the eye could see. Thin clouds were lingering in the sky as we were there, and Director Yuyama greatly admired the sight.

The Diancie Event

The mythical Pokémon Diancie will be give out at theaters all over Japan!
This summer, you will receive the mythical Pokémon Diance if you go see the Pokémon movie in the theaters!

We will unveil it's all-new, never before seen move:
It's called Diamond Storm

Why the Diancie Given Out is so Amazing!

The giveaway will be available in theaters between Saturday July 19th and Tuesday September 30th while the Pokémon movie is being screened.
*Screening periods will vary between theaters. Please verify with your local theater personally.
*Be aware that even if the movie continues being screened, the giveaway will not be available after Tuesday September 30th.

A new Rock/Fairy type Pokémon
Level: 50
Type: Rock/Fairy
Ability: Clear Body
Moves: Diamond Storm, Reflect, Return, Moonblast
Held Item: Normal Jewel
Ball: Precious Ball
Ribbon: Wish Ribbon

A move only Diancie can learn: Diamond Storm

It is a Rock type move that can attack multiple opponents at once. Since it is the same type as Diancie, it has 1.5 times its normal power when used. Also, when you use the move, your own Defense will rise as well!

It can also use both offensive and defensive super moves!!

A move that reduces damage from the opponent's physical moves for 5 turns. If you raise your Defense with Diamond Storm, you will decrease the damage from the opponent's physical moves even further.
A Normal type move that changes is power depending on how friendly you are with the Pokémon. Its special trait is that it grows stronger the friendlier you are. After you receive Diancie, take it with you on your adventure, and it will become more and more friendly.
A Fairy type move that reduces the opponent's Special Attack. Just like Diamond Storm, it's of the same type as Diancie, so its power will increase by 1.5!

It holds the extremely rare "Normal Jewel"!

This is a powerful item that, when held, will increase the power of a Normal type move by 1.3 times a single time. If you use the "Normal Jewel" to increase the power of "Return" even further when Diancie loves you as much as it possibly can, you're able to deal large amounts of damage to the enemy!
The "Normal Jewel" disappears after being used once.
Be aware that when you hold a "Normal Jewel", it will automatically activate its effect when you use a Normal type move.
*If you're playing a link battle over the PSS, the "Normal Jewel" will not disappear after use.

How to Receive the Diancie Giveaway Present in the Theaters

Giveaway period
Saturday July 19th to Tuesday September 30th while the Pokémon movie is being screened
*Screening periods will vary between theaters. Please verify with your local theater personally.

XY24 Delayed, XY25 to Air Instead

Posted by Sunain | April 21st 2014 at 12:14 PM EDT
Tags: Anime, Pocket Monsters XY
Comments: 3
On April 16th, 2014, the South Korean ferry Sewol (세월호) carrying 476 people capsized and many people died in the accident.


On April 21st, 2014, TV Tokyo announced that they would be delaying the airing of XY24 - The Castle on the Seabed! Kuzumo and Dramidoro!! (海底の城! クズモーとドラミドロ!!) as the episode featured Satoshi and friends diving underwater to look for the luxury ship "The Cussler" which was assumed to have sunk. Pokémon Get TV 28 did have the preview for XY24 though. XY25 - The Shoyo Gym Match! Pikachu VS Chigoras!! (ショウヨウジム戦!ピカチュウ対チゴラス!!) aired on April 24th, 2014 instead.

This is the message that TV Tokyo posted on the Official Pocket Monsters XY anime website: "Due to the current situation, the episode planned to be broadcast April 24th, "The Castle on the Seabed! Kuzumo and Dramidoro!!", has been temporarily put on hold. It is scheduled to be broadcast at a later date. Once an airdate has been decided, it will be announced on our website." (4/24に放送を予定していた『海底の城!クズモーとドラミドロ!!』は、都合により放送延期になりました。今後、改めて放送する予定です。日程は決まり次第、HP上等で発表します。)

TV Tokyo's official Pokémon site has also removed the list of upcoming episodes from their preview page, as the upcoming schedule is presumably not decided yet. As announced earlier, Pocket Monsters XY will not air Thursday May 1st due to a conflicting broadcast from the World Table Tennis Championships, but the exact content of Pocket Monsters airings for the rest of May is still unknown.
