Movie 20 Website Updates with a Report from the Public Dubbing

A Report from the Public Dubbing Event

A public dubbing event took place somewhere in Tokyo Wednesday June 15th.
Present on stage were Kanata Hongo, the voice of Soji, Shiori Sato, the voice of Makoto, Koichi Yamadera, the voice of Marshadow, Shoko Nakagawa, the voice of Joy, Arata Furuta, the voice of Bonji, and Director Yuyama.

Sato went to see the very first movie in the theater as a child. This time, she plays the lively and masculine Makoto.
She had trouble getting the running scene right, and had to practice it many times.

Hongo liked Pokémon so much as a kid he wouldn't go play outside on the days it aired on TV. He performs his role as Soji, the boy with a calm exterior hiding true passion, with great skill.
He spoke of his role with the line "I can now die without any regrets", which made the other actors laugh heartily.

Nakagawa is playing in her 11th Pokémon movie this year, and performs a passionate portrayal of Joy, whom she greatly admires. Her performance was so perfect the director even called it "the very image of Joy".
"I've made use of my 11 years of experience and the director's words in every single moment of my life to turn my entire life into Pokémon", she said with passion in her voice.

Furuta was told to "make his performance more excited" and instantly switched gears, playing a Bonji that was profound, yet at the same time overflowing with excitement. Furuta has said he doesn't use his natural speaking voice when voice acting, but he did exactly that this time, and commented that "It actually made me feel really awkward".

Yamadera has played in 20 movies in a row so far, and this time he's in charge of Marshadow's voice. "I have less lines this time than I've ever had before, but it's also my most difficult role so far", he said. He goes on to say he tried various methods in order to follow the difficult instructions he was given, like "It shouldn't sound normal, it shouldn't sound like a voice" and "Make the sound come from your respiratory tract". During the dubbing, he gave us a strange tone of voice that contained both two and three sounds at the same time, which impressed everyone present, the director included.

The session concluded with everyone playing a finger pointing game based on the movie's title "I Choose You!": "If you had to choose one of the guest voice actors to be your travelmate, who would you choose?"
The guest voice actors went "Won't that just cause arguments later?" and "Are you really making us do this? (laughs)" with bitter smiles on their faces.
The end result was that Nakagawa, Yamadera and Furuta pointed to Hongo, Sato pointed to Furuta, and Director Yuyama pointed to Yamadera.

There's only one month left until the movie premieres! Make sure to check out the passionate performances from all the guest voice actors in the theater!!

The Mythical Pokémon Marshadow's secrets are coming to light!

Posted by Sunain | June 16th 2017 at 11:40 AM EDT
Tags: Press Release, Formes, Z-Move
Comments: 0
The Pokémon Company International announced more official details for the Mythical Pokémon Marshadow. Details about its distribution in Japan were announced on the Movie 20 website but today's press release indicates that for the rest of the world, the distribution details will be announced at a future date.


The Mythical Pokémon Marshadow's secrets are coming to light!

The Gloomdweller Pokémon Marshadow is the first Fighting- and Ghost-type Pokémon, and it has its own exclusive Z-Move: Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike!

Among the numerous Pokémon discovered to date, Marshadow is the first to combine Fighting type and Ghost- type. Marshadow is able to conceal itself in the shadows, and it never appears before humans, so its very existence was previously thought to be a myth.

Marshadow can sink into the shadows of others and copy their moves and power. Fighting-type Pokémon are usually weak in battle against Psychic-type Pokémon, but with Marshadow, you’ll be able to take advantage of its Ghost-type abilities to battle effectively!

When standing up to enemies with its full power, parts of Marshadow's body turn green, thanks to its burning fighting spirit.

Spectral Thief is a new move which only Marshadow can learn. This move steals any stat boosts that the target had and then deals an attack. It’s a powerful physical move with a surprising effect. Change a crisis into a chance, and victory may be within your reach!

Once Marshadow knows Spectral Thief, the special Z-Move Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike can be used. Marshadow must also be holding the special Z-Crystal Marshadium Z, which cannot be obtained through regular gameplay, to perform this Z-Move.


More details, including how Trainers can get this Pokémon for their game, will be announced at a future time.

Tags: Anime, Movie, Event Pokémon, Pokémon Ga-Olé
Comments: 0
The official Pokémon movie website has updated. Translations of the new entries follow:

Attendance Gift Information

When you go see the movie, you will receive a "I Choose You Cap Pikachu" Ga-Olé Disk" in the theater!

A total of 3 million audience members throughout Japan who go see "Pocket Monsters the Movie: I Choose You!" will be given a "Special "I Choose You Cap Pikachu" Ga-Olé Disk" they can use with "Pokémon Ga-Olé"! Go see the movie and receive the "Special "I Choose You Cap Pikachu" Ga-Olé Disk"!
*The giveaway is limited to 3 million attendants throughout Japan.
*Note that each theater will have a limited number of disks.
*There is no age limit for receiving the disk.
*The gift is not for sale. Please do not resell it.

Also, you can befriend "Satoshi's Pikachu (I Choose You Cap)" in Pocket Monsters Ultra Sun and Pocket Monsters Ultra Moon, on sale Friday November 17th!
Befriending "Satoshi's Pikachu (I Choose You Cap)" in the Nintendo 3DS games "Pocket Monsters Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon" can only be done with the Special Ga-Olé Disk given out in the theater!

What is Pokémon Ga-Olé...?

"Pokémon Ga-Olé" is a kids' amusement game machine where you can enjoy super intense Pokémon battles on a huge 50 inch monitor! Enjoy Pokémon battles featuring direction filled with intensity and realism!

Summon more and more powerful Pokémon with your very own strength!
"Pokémon Ga-Olé" is a game where you enjoy 2-vs-2 Pokémon battles while cheering on your on-hand Pokémon by pressing buttons according to onscreen prompts!
After battles, your on-hand Pokémon's "roar" increases, which lets you continue battling against the Pokémon that heard the roar and appeared before you! The louder your "roar", the greater the chance of powerful Pokémon apparing, like legendary Pokémon, here represented with "Houou"!

If you brilliantly manage to catch the opposing Pokémon after a white-hot battle that makes your hands sweat, your own Pokémon's "roar" will increase, and a strong Pokémon will appear! Insert a new coin and continue battling!

The "Special "I Choose You Cap Pikachu" Ga-Olé Disk"'s unique design!!

The "Special "I Choose You Cap Pikachu" Ga-Olé Disk" we're giving out is a Ga-Olé Disk you can't otain through normal play! Not only that, but if you use this disk to play "Pokémon Ga-Olé", the special mode "Houou Roulette" exclusive to this disk will activate, allowing Pikachu and Houou to attack in succession!

For further information on Pokémon Ga-Olé, see the official website here

You can befriend "Satoshi's Pikachu (I Choose You Cap)" in Pocket Monsters Ultra Sun and Pocket Monsters Ultra Moon!

By scanning the QR code printed on the Special Ga-Olé Disk we're giving out using the QR Scan function in the new games "Pocket Monsters Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon", which are planned for release Friday November 17th, you'll be able to befriend "Satoshi's Pikachu (I Choose You Cap)" in the games!
Make the Pikachu wearing the hat Satoshi wears in the movie participate in the world of "Pocket Monsters Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon"!

What is "QR Scan"?
It's a function that lets you check information on the Pokémon associated with that QR code by having your Nintendo 3DS game "Pocket Monsters Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon" read the code.
Unlike when you have it read a normal QR code, having it read the QR code printed on the "Special "I Choose You Cap Pikachu" Ga-Olé Disk" given out to movie attendants does not only let you receive information on "Satoshi's Pikachu (I Choose You Cap)", it also lets you befriend it in-game.
*You will need to have played up to a certain point in order to read the QR code on the "Special "I Choose You Cap Pikachu" Ga-Olé Disk".
*"Satoshi's Pikachu (I Choose You Cap)" can not be received in "Pocket Monsters Sun/Moon".
