As of July 28th, 2015, Canadian Netflix competitor Shomi will now host the Pokémon Anime on its service according to the official Pokémon Twitter account. Shomi is a video on demand service jointly owned by Canadian cable giants Rogers Communications and Shaw Communications. Unlike Netflix, Shomi is currently only available to Rogers and Shaw Internet or cable customers and a Shomi subscription costs $8.99 CDN a month in addition to a Rogers or Shaw subscription. Some of their higher end cable packages include the Shomi service though. Canadian Pokémon anime fans wishing to watch the series are better off buying the DVD's or buying the episodes and season packs from iTunes. The Pokémon anime series is also available on demand via Netflix or on Pokemon.com's Watch Pokémon TV.

Movie 18 Blog Updates with Third Scouting Report

The official Pokémon movie blog has updated. We have added a section collecting every single blog entry for easy browsing. Translations of the new entry follows:

Location Scouting Report #3: The Persian Gulf and Arabian Life Now and Then

Having left the "Sheikh Zayed Mosque", the team once again set off by bus.
As we were on our way towards our next destination, the historical museum "Heritage Village", we took a short stop at the coastline near "Breakwater Road" in order to get some material of the skyline.

From the park here, you have a view on the beautiful blue of the Persian Gulf.
Across the water, the buildings of central Abu Dhabi line the shore.
Three of them tower especially high above the others.
These are the three buildings that make up the skyscraper complex of "Central Market", where we'll be going later this afternoon.

The other buildings seem small at first glance, but it's really just because those three towers are so much larger than everything else in the area.
Compared to the dazzling atmosphere of Dubai, Abu Dhabi is somewhat more relaxed.
As the sea spread out before us, it felt like we were looking at desert cities from a different angle.

This heat, though...
We saw absolutely no one other than us walking around outside.
Our only companions were the flags the UAE are so proud of, which could be seen flapping calmly in the wind under the cloudless sky all over.

The team then continued on to the historical museum "Heritage Village" to see the sights.
This is a place where you can learn about Abu Dhabi's history and cutural heritage, as well as historical Arabian lifestyle.
On exhibit are recreations of encampments and "souks" (markets) and displays of the creations of iron smiths, glasscrafters and leatherworkers, etc.
This museum taught us a lot about life in Arabia prior to the prosperous development that occurred when they started drilling for oil.

From a park scorched by blazing sunlight to exhibition facilities!
We thought the facilities would be cool and refreshing,but they were almost like steam baths...!
Nearly dizzy from the heat and constantly sweating, we had lunch at a restaurant at the premises.
The scouting team's first meal ended up being a full-fledged Arabian buffet.
