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
Diancie
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!!

Reflect
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.
Return
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.
Moonblast
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.

XY24 Delayed, XY25 to Air Instead

On April 16th, 2014, the South Korean ferry Sewol (세월호) carrying 476 people capsized and many people died in the accident.

note

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.

The official movie site has updated with information on the guest voice actors for this year's movies. A translation of the article follows:

cast

It' time to announce the guest voice actors for this year's movies! The guest voice actors in the feature film "Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction" will be Yoshiko Mita (三田佳子), Koichi Yamadera (山寺宏一), Shoko Nakagawa (中川翔子), Rika Adachi (足立梨花) and the Nakagawake comedian duo (Tsuyoshi and Reiji).

In addition, it has been decided that the narration in the co-feature short will be provided by AKB48 member Mayu Watanabe (渡辺麻友).

Now for some comments from the actors:

The actors in the feature film, "Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction"

Yoshiko Mita (voice of Xerneas) - 三田佳子(ゼルネアス役):
VA When I was first approached about voice acting, I was very surprised! (laughs) I think it might have been the sum of my long time working in these circles, living this career and my outlook on life that got me to taking this role. I am happy being able to make myself known through Pikachu and the others. In this world, I'd like to make use of the same mentality that make my grandchild(ren) like me.

初めて声優のお話を聞いた時は「あら、驚いた!」という感じでした(笑)長くこの世界でやってきて、生きてきたキャリアや人生観などトータルなもので、この役に声をかけて頂いたのかなと思いました。私の存在をピカチュウたちを通して、知ってもらえるというのは、嬉しいです。孫に好かれる精神が、この世界でも活かせればと思います。

Koichi Yamadera (voice of Ninja Riot) - 山寺宏一(ニンジャ・ライオット役)
VA Perfect attendance and still going! I'm really happy! But this is the first installation of "Pokémon the Movie XY", so I'll go back and remember what it's like to be a beginner, and do my best! (Although I'm always nervous anyways, since my roles are very different every time.) This time, I'm playing a thief who uses a Gekkouga. Come to think of it, when I was a child I loved this series called "Phantom Agents" (Jp. Ninja Butai Gekkou) and I'd often play ninja games... I'll try to recall those times and give it my all while acting!

皆勤賞継続中です!本当に嬉しい!でも「ポケモン・ザ・ムービーXY」として初の劇場版なので、初心に帰って頑張ります!(そもそも毎回役が違うので、いつもドキドキなんですが)今回はゲッコウガを使う忍者盗賊の役。そういえば子供の頃「忍者部隊月光」という番組が大好きで、よく忍者ごっこをしていたっけ‥。その頃を思い出して精一杯演じます!!

Shoko Nakagawa (voice of Miriss Steel) - 中川翔子(ミリス・スティール役)
VA This is my eighth time being a guest voice actor, and for the first time in a while, I've got a human role! Since it's a role I've never played before but have been wanting to do for a while, I'm excited. This character changes expressions often, I hope you'll see a new side of me. I'll put all I've learned in these eight years into this, so I'd be happy if you came to the theaters to watch.

8年目のゲスト声優の役が、久々の人間役!今まで演じたことのない、やってみたかった役に挑戦できるので、とても楽しみです。色んな顔を見せるキャラクターなので、新たな中川翔子を見ていただけると思います。今までの8年間のすべてを込めて、がんばりたいと思いますので、是非、劇場で観て頂けると嬉しいです。

Rika Adachi (voice of Marilyn Flame) - 足立梨花(マリリン・フレイム役)
VA This is the happiest thing that has happened to me lately, and I got so psyched that I kept shouting, "For real? For real?" over and over (laughs). I've been playing the games since I was little and have watched the anime the whole time, so I was overjoyed about this job. I also want to do my best so children watching this movie will grow to like Pokémon even more.

ここ最近で一番うれしい事だったので、テンション上がりっぱなしで、「マジですか?」「マジですか?」と連呼してしまいました(笑)小さい頃からゲームもやっていたし、アニメもずっと見ていたので、すごく嬉しいお仕事でした。この映画を観て、子供たちにさらにポケモンを好きになってもうらえるように、私もがんばりたいと思います。

The Nakagawake duo (Tsuyoshi Nakagawa: Voice of Melecie & Reiji Nakagawa: Voice of Algus Steel) - 中川家(中川剛:メレシー役、中川礼二:アルガス・スティール役)
VA Comment written by Reiji: "What? Why?" was our initial response when we heard about this (laugh). We're comedians, but this is our first time voice acting, so we're amateurs, but we hope not to fall behind the others and to be able to express ourselves. We don't know if the children recognize our faces, but we hope they're looking forward to [the movie] in any case.

「え、なぜだ?」それが、一番最初にこの話を聞いた時に返した言葉です。(笑)お笑いをやっていますけど、声優は初めてで、素人なので、みなさんに負けないように、自分を出せればいいのかなと思います。子供たちは、僕の顔が分かるかどうか分かりませんが、楽しみにしていただければと思います。


The actors in the short, "Pikachu, What Kind of Keys are These?"
Mayu Watanabe (Narrator) - 渡辺麻友 (ナレーション)
VA I'm so happy (to be in charge of the narration of the short)! I went to watch the movie "Mewtwo Strikes Back" with my family and played the games with my older sister. The Pokémon in the short are truly lovely, so it's a soothing work. I was motivated to do my best so people could enjoy it. As it premieres in the summer holidays, I hope I can help making children from all over the country come to the theaters to watch it, and make it the most wonderful work of this summer!

(短編のナレーションを担当することになり)すごく嬉しいです!映画は「ミュウツーの逆襲」を家族と一緒に観に行き、ゲームも姉と一緒にやっていました。短編はポケモンたちが本当に可愛らしくて癒やされる作品。楽しんでもらえるように頑張らなくてはと感じました。夏休み公開の作品ということで、全国の子どもたちにぜひ劇場で観て頂き、この夏一番の素敵な作品になるよう、お手伝いが出来ればと思います!

Movie Website Updates with News on Theme Song, Part 6 of Yuyama's Scouting Report, etc

The Official Movie 17 Website has updated today with several new articles and their translation is below. It has been decided that the 4-member girls' band SCANDAL will be responsible for the theme song to "Pokémon the Movie XY: The Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie", which premieres this summer.

The Four-Member Girls' Band SCANDAL Will be Responsible for the Theme Song

group

The song is titled Meteor Shower at Dawn (夜明けの流星群) and part of it can be heard in the new movie trailer premiering in theaters April 19th.

All the members of SCANDAL are huge Pokémon fans. The first video game RINA (drummer and vocalist) bought in her life was "Pocket Monsters", and the first movie she went to see in a theater was "Pocket Monsters the Movie" (this was also the case with MAMI). Because of this, they feel very strongly about this song, and were extremely motivated about it.

Now for some comments from SCANDAL themselves:

HARUNA (Vocals and guitar) - Haruna Ono (小野春菜)
HARUNA When I heard we were going to do the theme song this year, I got so happy I started jumping around with joy. While the four of us are from what you call the first generation of Pokémon fans, I still remember me and my friends excitedly looking forward to the very first Pokémon movie "Mewtwo Strikes Back" during the summer vacation when it first premiered as if it was yesterday. Every year since then, children have been falling in love with another such Pokémon movie during summer vacation, and I want our song to help burn this movie into the memories of the children that will be running the world in the future just like those older movies remain in our memories.

今回主題歌を担当させていただけると聞いたときは、飛び上がるぐらい嬉しかったです。ポケモン第一世代と呼ばれる私達ですが、夏休みのポケモン映画第一弾「ミュウツーの逆襲」が上映される時に友達みんなでワクワク待ち遠しくしていたのをつい最近のことのように覚えています。そんな長年に渡ってキッズ達に愛されてきた夏休みのポケモン映画、私達の記憶にずっと残っているようにこれからの未来を担う子供たちの記憶に焼きつくよう私たちの楽曲で更に盛り上げていければなと思います!

TOMOMI (Bass and vocals) - Tomomi Ogawa (小川ともみ)
TOMOMI Back when we were in grade school, Pokémon was always the subject when we had time off. It practically was our youth. I think there's a lot of children who will be watching "Pokémon the Movie XY: The Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie" as their first movie ever, and we're going to do our absolute utmost to make those children come back home as excited and emotionally moved as we were back then... or no, even more excited and moved than we were. We will be very happy if you enjoy the movie all the way till the end.

小学生の頃、休み時間の話題はいつだってポケモン。まさに私たちの青春そのものでした。今回の『ポケモン・ザ・ムービーXY 「破壊の繭とディアンシー」』が初めて観る映画になる子供たちも沢山いると思います。あの頃の私たちが抱いた興奮と感動と同じくらい、いやそれを越えるものを持って帰って頂けるように、精一杯心を込めて作りました。ラストまで楽しんで頂けたら嬉しいです。

MAMI (Bass and vocals) - Mami Sasazaki (笹崎まみ)
MAMI Pokémon was the first movie I ever saw in my life. It was so intense I thought the Pokémon were going to jump out of the screen at any moment, and I still remember the tears that fell as I entered the world of movies way back then. I also really love the Pokémon video games and have played them all the way since "Pocket Monsters Red/Green" and "Pocket Monsters Blue" up to the recent "Pocket Monsters X/Y", and I'm incredibly happy I get to take part in the production of something as indispensable to my life as Pokémon. I think our song will cheer the Pokémon in the movie on.

生まれて初めて観た映画はポケモン。今にもポケモンたちが画面から飛び出してくるんじゃないかと思うくらいの迫力と子どもながらに映画の世界に入り込んでボロボロ泣いたのを覚えています。ポケモンのゲームも大好きで、『ポケットモンスター赤・緑』『ポケットモンスター青』の頃から最新作『ポケットモンスターX・Y』までプレイしているので、そんな自分の人生には欠かせないポケモンに携われて、とても嬉しいです!ポケモンたちの活躍を私たちの曲で応援できたらなと思います!

RINA (Drums and vocals) - Rina Suzuki (鈴木理菜)
RINA We've been chosen to do the theme song for "Pokémon XY the Movie: The Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie"! Since the four of us were born right into the Pokémon generation, this makes us very happy. Pokémon was the very first video game I ever got as a birthday present, and if I look back on my childhood, I remember Pokémon always being part of it. It makes me very happy to think that the children who will be watching this as their first movie, and who make "Meteor Shower at Dawn" the first song they memorize, will have that song automatically play in their heads when they reflect back on their childhood after growing up. I'm also really looking forward to the live performance we'll be doing of the song!

今回、映画『ポケモン・ザ・ムービーXY 「破壊の繭とディアンシー」』の主題歌を担当させていただくことになりました!ポケモン世代ド真ん中の私たちにとっても、とても嬉しいことです。誕生日プレゼントで初めてもらったゲームもポケモンで、思い返せばポケモンがそばにある幼少期でした。今回が初めて観る映画になる子供たちが、初めて覚えた歌が「夜明けの流星群」になって、それが大人になった時に子供の頃を振り返ると頭の中で自然に再生されたら嬉しいです。ライブでやるのも楽しみです!

A profile on SCANDAL

SCANDAL was formed in Osaka in 2006, and made their debut in 2008. The year after, their single "Girl S" (少女S) won the Best New Artist category at the Japan Record Awards. They set a new record as the fastest a girls' band has performed at the Nippon Budokan after debuting, and not too long ago, they topped even that achievement when they fulfilled their goal of holding a concert at the Osaka Jo Hall. Then, in June 2014, they will be performing the annual Yokohama Arena 2days concert as the first girls' band to do so in 23 years. Truly, they are the very model of Japanese girls' bands.

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 6: The Jewel of the Rideau, Merrickville
thumbnail


The group continued onward to the town of Merrickville, which is known as "the Jewel of the Rideau".

The streets of this town were filled with locations we could use for the movie, with colorful buildings lining the picturesque scenery. Thanksgiving was just around the corner too, leading to the stores having lots of decorations on display. The entire city felt like one big, cute general store.

Director Yuyama and Art Director Akiba went to a local book store and bought reference material, so you'll get to see landscapes resembling this town in the movie.
