Event Report #16: A Report from the public dubbing of "Volcanion and the Ingenious Magearna!"

The public dubbing for the press for "Pokémon the movie XY&Z: Volcanion and the Ingenious Magearna" took place Tuesday June 28th!!
This is a status report from that!

A line-up of extravagant guest voice actors!

One of them just can't hide how nervous he is...

First up is Somegoro Ichikawa, who plays Volcanion!

"Don't ya touch me so familiarly!"

He even acts out the role of the human-hating Volcanion with his facial expressions.
It's almost like he's been possessed by Volcanion!

Next up is Shoko Nakagawa and Mayu Matsuoka!
Nakagawa plays Azoth Kingdom's prince Racel, and Matsuoka plays its princess Chymia.

In this scene, the older sister Chymia is confronting the younger brother Racel.

Prior to the dubbing, these two have been getting along as if they were sisters, but...

"I saw you went to the rampart tower! Jarvis was there with you too, so what were you two doing there?"

"I am researching the art of science. There are still a lot of ingenuities made by Éliphas left in that tower."

As the two of them get into their roles, the atmosphere gets tense...
Just what kind of sibling relationship does Chymia and Racel have...?

Last up is Somegoro Ichikawa, Koichi Yamadera and Abareru-kun all together.
In this scene, Jarvis is fighting Satoshi and Volcanion!

Abareru-kun is so nervous he's frozen solid...

Yamadera has been in 19 Pokémon movies in a row now. This time around, he's playing Azoth Kingdom's cabinet minister Jarvis!

"Mega Wave!"

He uses the "Mega Wave", which can forcibly mega evolve Pokémon, to mega evolve the Onigohri Abareru-kun plays into Mega Onigohri!

"...O ...Oni ..Onigo... Oni...!!"

But the normally wild and crazy Abareru-kun is "not wild enough", and we get a take 2!

Hey, this thing is hot, can I take it off...?

He's been sweating with nervousity and passion under his Onigohri headgear!

During take 3, Abareru-kun wild acting finally blooms forth, and he gets an OK.
The passion all the guest voice actors put in their acting truly shined in this public dubbing!

The premiere of "Pokémon the movie XY&Z: Volcanion and the Ingenious Magearna" is finally right around the corner!
Don't miss the extravagant guest voice actors' impassioned performances! The movie premieres Saturday July 16th!

We're also giving out the mythical Pokémon Volcanion!
The special pre-order tickets are on sale until Friday July 15th!

Return to the era of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl with the Sinnoh Classic. Put together the best team you can using the first 493 Pokémon in the National Pokédex—all the Pokémon you could have originally acquired through the Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh regions. In the spirit of the 2008 Video Game Showdown, one of the first worldwide Pokémon video game competitions, all battles will be Double Battles with each Trainer bringing four Pokémon to battle.

The competition used the Double Battles format and players had to register 6 of their level 1–100 Pokémon to their Battle Box with 4 able to be used during each match. Pokémon automatically became Level 50 during battles. A 60-minute time limit for each match was automatically enforced in-game, beginning at the start of each battle. If the outcome had not been determined when the time limit expired, the game automatically applied tiebreakers to determine a winner. At the beginning of each battle, players had 60 seconds to select their Pokémon to battle with. At the beginning of each turn, players had 60 seconds to select a move or change Pokémon in battle. If a player had not made his or her selections at the end of this period, the game automatically made selections for the player. Players could battle up to 10 games per day of the competition. Any unplayed games would carry over to the following day.

The Next Generation World Hobby Fair '16 Summer is held at Makuhari Messe over two days: Saturday June 25th and Sunday June 26th!
This is a status report from day 1!

First of all, we went to the Pokémon Booth, marked by the Pikachu balloon!
It's built around a stage designed after the movie "Volcanion and the Ingenious Magearna", which premiere is rapidly approaching!

From the right of the Pokémon Booth stage, we can hear what sounds like something being shot out!

It turns out to be the interactive attraction "Volcanion's Steam Eruption Heatbursts"!
You move your body to make Volcanion shoot out a "Steam Eruption"!

In the back of the booth, you can see the 10 Keywords that will make you enjoy the movie even more, as well as a new video clip you can't see anywhere else! In this video clip, you can see... What!? The Magearna from 500 years ago!?

Next to that, there was a stage show featuring "Pocket Monsters Sun/Moon", which we just can't wait to get released!
Only the people that went to the fair knows what secrets were revealed here!

Near the stage, the staff were handing out "Volcanion Sun Visors" and "Keyword Quiz Rally" forms!

Once you've traveled around the booth and solved the "Keyword Rally" quiz questions, you'll be given original merchandise at the goal!
The goal area is to the left of the stage!

When you combine this sticker with the sticker you get when purchasing the pre-order ticket, it forms a full picture!

The Special pre-order ticket was on sale right next to the goal area!
It's on sale until Friday July 15th!
Those of you who haven't bought one yet, get yourselves one while attending the Next Generation WHF!

Abareru-kun and Rinka-chan from Pokémon no Uchi Atsumaru?, as well as Tomohisa Sako, were holding a stage show presentin the latest information on the movie!

It starts early in the morning, so those of you wanting to watch it can't sleep in!

Right across the Pokémon Booth, there's also a corner presenting "Pokémon Ga-Olé", which will be available from July!

You can also take a commemmorative photo with Pikachu and Volcanion!

There's fun to be had all day! The Next Generation World Hobby Fair '16 Summer is held tomorrow, Sunday June 26th, as well! Admission is free!
