The official website for the Pocket Monsters XY&Z Character Song Project, which launched in late October some time prior to the premiere of the Pocket Monsters XY&Z TV series, has updated with the revelation of a third character song, The Rocket Gang Team Song (ロケット団 団 歌), featuring Musashi, Kojiro, Nyarth and Sonansu, following the XY&Z opening theme "XY&Z", featuring Satoshi, and the XY&Z ending theme "The Squishy Song", featuring Eureka. The song will be available at select digital music services from January 20th, 2016.


In addition to this song, the new "Character Song Room" subsite on the website, which contains purchase links for the two already-released songs, also teases the existence of three additional songs.

What is the Pokémon Character Song Project?

In order to liven up Satoshi and his friends' adventure, a music laboratory constantly researches music. The songs that have been researched at the laboratory then get sent to everyone that love Pokémon by "The Character Song Project" and the designated executive producer of this character project is, incredibly enough: Good old Tomohisa Sako of "Getta Banban" fame!! The "character song project" will involve a wide variety of characters singing!! Look forward to it!!


The first Character Song Project CD collection was also announced. Two versions of the CD will be released:
The 1600 yen Limited Edition comes with a DVD containing creditless versions of the Pocket Monsters XY&Z OP and ED, as well as a yet announced tretta. The 1300 yen Standard Edition will just include the CD. Details of both these CDs have been added to our database.

Pokémon: The First Movie to be rereleased in Australian and New Zealand cinemas

Comments: 2
Hoyts Cinema has revealed that Pokémon: The First Movie will be rereleased in cinemas in Australia and New Zealand on 8 October 2015. Although only Mewtwo Strikes Back has been referenced, the running time is listed as 96 minutes so it is likely that screenings will also include Pikachu's Vacation as per the original release in 1999. No further details regarding session times or participating cinemas have been released as yet.


Giovanni, the leader of Team Rocket, had ambitious plans to take over the world, involving his latest experiment, a powerful clone of Mew—Mewtwo. Mewtwo is very powerful, and also very smart—smart enough to not want to be controlled by Giovanni. It escaped from the lab, and now Mewtwo begins to concoct its own scheme, clandestinely inviting a number of Pokémon Trainers to the ultimate test. Of course, if it's an event for talented Trainers, Ash Ketchum will be right in the front row!

Ash's excitement turns to fear and anger when Mewtwo reveals its plan for domination, creating powerful clones of all of the kids' Pokémon so it can even the "imbalance" between Pokémon and their Trainers. Despite Ash's protests, Mewtwo refuses to believe that Pokémon and people can be friends. But faced with the determination of a young Trainer and the love of his Pokémon, Mewtwo just might have to reconsider, especially when pitted against the power of the mysterious Mew!
