The official Pokémon movie website has updated. Translations of the new entry follows:

A Report from the Next Generation World Hobby Fair '16 Winter Tokyo Fair!

The Next Generation World Hobby Fair '16 Winter is this winter's big event!!
It's being held in four venues all across Japan: Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka!

Here is a status report from the Tokyo Fair, which was held Saturday January 23rd and Sunday January 24th!
It's definitely worth a look if you're still wondering if you should go or not!

---------

After entering the venue, our goal was the Pokémon Booth!
Thus, we went for the booth marked with the Pikachu balloon!



The one thing you definitely want to make sure you get at the fair is the "Pokémon Movie Newspaper" that's being handed out around the booth in the form of a newspaper extra!
It contains a close look at the secrets of the mythical Pokémon Volcanion!
It's perfect for reading while you're waiting for stage shows or attractions!



Multiple shows were held at the stage in the booth itself!
Satoshi's voice actress, Rica Matsumoto, and the performer of the Pocket Monsters XY opening theme "Getta Banban", Tomohisa Sako, were both present!



During the "Pokémon Tretta & Pikachu Talk" stage show, Tomohisa Sako played on a "Pokémon Tretta Ultimate Z Set 2" game system!
Sako calls himself a Pokémon Sommelier, and his skill at the game was absolutely outstanding!
The way he and Rica Matsumoto play off each other perfectly is also a must see!



During the anime stage show, they also held a fun quiz competition!



And of course, they did a special concert as well!
Rica Matsumoto sang "XY&Z", the opening theme to the anime series "Pocket Monsters XY&Z", while Tomohisa Sako sang "Getta Banban"!
In addition, the two of them sang a special duet version of "Mezase! Pokémon Master"!



The Pokémon Booth also had a "Squishy Quiz Rally" you had to wander around the booth to solve, as well as a...



...hands-on attraction titled "Heatbursting Volcanion: Blast Everything Away with Steam!", and lots of other fun things!



There was also a corner where you could try out Pokkén for free!

Make sure to visit the Next Generation World Hobby Fair venue closest to you one of the coming weekends!
Admission is free! The fair is scheduled to be held from 9am to 4pm!
For further information on the Pokémon Booth, check this page!

And we're not done yet! During the Tokyo Fair, a special stage show featuring the hosts of "Pokémon no Uchi Atsumaru?" was held Sunday January 24th! Here's a quick status report from that!
*This stage show is exclusive to the Tokyo Fair



Just when you thought Abareru-kun was going to make his appearance, Badnice Tsuneda(*) showed up dressed as Volcanion!
He started spraying carbon gas around!
(*)Badnice Tsuneda is a rookie comedian who looks up to Abareru-kun as his mentor



Tomohisa Sako's "Getta Banban" and Rica Matsumoto's "XY&Z" made the entire venue explode with a Heatburst of excitement! What a climax!
This truly was a high-volume stage show, featuring both the latest movie info and a quiz competition!

Story


A Pokémon came falling from the sky!

As Satoshi continued his journey aiming to become a Pokémon Master, a lump covered in white smoke suddenly dropped out of the sky and landed in front of him and his friends.
As white smoke spread around as far as the eye could see, a shape appeared from within it;
The mythical Pokémon Volcanion.

Ignoring the worried Satoshi and his friends, Volcanion, who hates humans, immediately tries to leave the place.
However, the impact of the fall caused Satoshi and Volcanion to be linked together by a strange device, leaving them unable to separate...!

Volcanion runs off and Satoshi gets dragged along by it, eventually reaching the Azoth Kingdom, a city of super-machinery where gigantic cogwheels are all over the place and rotating.
Why did Volcanion fall from the sky?
And why did it head to the Azoth Kingdom!?
With the mechanical kingdom of machinery as its setting, the hottest legend in Pokémon history begins!

Image


What is the power hidden in Volcanion's arms!?

Volcanion violently expels boiling steam!
Its arms can move freely and are split in two; the steam launched from them packs a punch! With this steam it is said to be able to blow away mountains and use the thick fog to hide itself. Because it possesses both the Fire and Water type, unlike other Pokémon before it, the water inlets of its arms can launch both Fire type moves and Water type moves. Also, the blue color of the windows on its arms seems to be related to the remaining water in its body.
For Volcanion, who uses fire and water to create steam explosions within its body and launch moves, water seems to be the source of its energy.
