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!

For further information on the Next Generation World Hobby Fair, including opening hours, venues, access information and the like, see the Next Generation World Hobby Fair '16 Winter website!

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

Event Report #12: An Opening Event Report from the "Summer Vacation Pokemon Carnival in Sunshine City", Starting Today!

The "Summer Vacation Pokemon Carnival in Sunshine City", held in Sunshine City, Ikebukuro, Tokyo, starts today!

Both "Save Sunshine City!", a participation puzzle event hosted by SCRAP Entertainment, known for their "Real Dasshutsu Game" events, and the "Pikachu and the Pokémon Musicians Café by Sweets Paradise", which is themed after the movie short, will take place here!

The entire Sunshine City will be drenched in other Pokémon events as well, such as the "Sea Lion Time: Pikachu & Hoopa Appear! Show" held in collaboration with Sunshine Aquarium, and the planetarium movie "Pocket Monsters XY: Sky Fragments" shown at the Manten planetarium!

For further information, see this page!

We will now present a status report from the opening event that took place today!

Prior to the event starting, legendary Pokémon had attacked and invaded the Alpa B1 Fountain Plaza, the sign-up location for "Save Sunshine City!" They were now quietly waiting for challengers to come by to solve their riddles!

The opening event, however, took place at Sunshine Aquarium!
It started off with Hoopa and Pikachu coming in!

Next, the special guests, Shoko Nakagawa, Shinichi Shinohara and Mizuki Yamamoto, all of which also play major roles in the movie as guest voice actors, Appear!

Shokotan and Shinohara greeted the crowd with their usual "Pokéssu!" and "Hippossu!"!

Shinohara plays the major role of Hippopotas!
Shokotan introduces him by mentioning that he's even been making full use of Hippopotasese on Twitter!

I-it's true!

It's then time for the next special guest, the sea lion Totto-chan!

The biggest event taking place at the "Summer Vacation Pokemon Carnival in Sunshine City" is the "Sea Lion Performance Time: Movie Premiere Commemoration Pikachu & Hoopa Appear! Show" at Sunshine Aquarium, which will be held from Monday July 27th and on!
The audience will now be shown a performance in advance of that!

As a special treat, it will also perform tricks per the guest voice actors' signals!

Totto-chan waves its hand at Shokotan's signal

It does a handstand at Mizuki's signal!

And it laughs loudly back at Shinohara's signal!

Totto-chan has shown off some amazing tricks so far, but Shinohara refuses to let it upstage him!
This leads to a ring toss competition between Shinohara the voice of Hippopotas and Totto-chan the sea lion!

A Hippopotas VS a sea lion!
This will truly go down is history as a legendary bout!
Let the fierce battle over the rings begin!!!

Shokotan is the first to throw!

Totto-chan catches it without difficuly!

But where will the ring Shokotan throws to Hippopotas Shinohara land!!!?

What an incredible catch!

Shinohara truly has reason to be proud of his physical capabilities!

Mizuki is the second to throw!

Totto-chan catches this one too! Its stability is incredible!!

And then Shinohara unfortunately misses!

Totto-chan the sea lion now has a lead of one!
If Satoshi was here right now, he'd surely encourage Shinohara by telling him not to give up!
You mustn't give up, Hippopotas!

I will not lose this battle...!!

The third to throw is a boy from the audience named Sora Kato!

Totto-chan once again doesn't miss! It got 3 rings perfectly!

And unfortunately, Shinohara ends up with a result of just one caught ring.

Totto-chan has shown us a truly amazing performance!

There's a lot more fun to be had at the "Sea Lion Performance Time: Movie Premiere Commemoration Pikachu & Hoopa Appear! Show", which will be held starting this Monday!

After the battle, everyone takes a commemorative photo!
Totto-chan Appears! from inside the ring!

Go visit Sunshine City, Ikebukuro, after watching the Pokémon movie!

The "Summer Vacation Pokemon Carnival in Sunshine City" is held in Sunshine City, Ikebukuro, Tokyo!
It runs from July 25th till August 23rd! Make sure to come visit!
