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!

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!

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

Event Report #11: Congratulations! The Pokémon Movie Premieres and the Pokémon Center Hiroshima Opens! Pikachu Appear! in Hiroshima!

In order to commemorate the premiere of the Pokémon movie and the opening of the Pokémon Center Hiroshima, Pikachu Appear! in Hiroshima!
We will bring you a status report!


Even Hoopa gets startled at what Appear! in Hiroshima! It's a total of 20 Pikachu!
First off, they head to the Pokémon Center Hiroshima!


The Red Gyarados from the Pokémon Center Hiroshima welcomes them!


The Pikachu shop according to their fancy.
What could they be buying?


They're purchasing the limited Pokémon Center "Pikachu Playing Koiking Plushies" made to commemorate the opening of the Pokémon Center Hiroshima!
And so many! Are they buying souvenirs for someone?


Now that the Pikachu have finished shopping, where are they headed next?


Pikachu, chu're on your way...


When you think of Hiroshima, you can't help but think of this place!

This is the Hiroshima Toyo Carp's home stadium, "MAZDA Zoom-Zoom Stadium Hiroshima"!
The Pikachu are going to join the CC Dance (Carp Cheer Dance) performed at the end of the 5th inning of today's baseball game!


...but it's raining!!

(the game got canceled due to rain this day)


................


The Carp's very own "gloomy weather man" Kenta Maeda was the starting pitcher that day.
The Pikachu's intrusion caused Maeda's Ability "Drizzle" to kick in with devastating results.


Still, the Pikachu had lots of fun interacting with all the Carp fans that had come to the stadium that day.

The next event is not dependent on the weather, however!

Tomorrow, Saturday July 25th, the "Summer Vacation Pokemon Carnival in Sunshine City" will start in Sunshine City, Ikebururo, Tokyo!
The entire Sunshine City will be drenched in Pokémon events, including "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!

Make sure to go!

For further information on that event, see the Summer Vacation Pokémon Carnival in Sunshine City page!

The official Pokémon movie blog has updated. Another article about the Pokémon VISA cards with further details from the announcement day is available by clicking here. Translations of the new entry follows:

Event Report #7: A Report from the Sumitomo Mitsui Pokémon VISA Credit Card/Prepaid Card Launch Celebration Event Saturday June 26th

The "Pokémon VISA Card" and "Pokémon VISA Prepaid" from Sumitomo Mitsui Card was available for respectively sign-up and sale starting June 26th!

A launch event for the cute credit cards and prepaid cards with Pikachu pictures on them was held at Ikebukuro Sunshine City!
Here is a detailed report from that event!



For further information on the "Pokémon VISA Card" and "Pokémon VISA Prepaid", see this news article!

Shoko Nakagawa aka Shoko-tan, who plays Mary, the girl who grew up together with Hoopa, in this year's movie "The Archdjinni of Rings: Hoopa", was at the launch event as a special guest!



We started off with an interview with the topic "Pokémon and me"!
When asked "How long is Pokémon's history now?", Shokotan replied "19 years"!

It's been an entire 19 years, and now that you can easily trade Pokémon with people all over the world via wifi, Pokémon has truly become a subculture that connects people! Nostalgic Pokémon are still showing up, or getting new Mega Evolutions, so I really think these 19 years have passed in the blink of an eye!



Every year, when summer comes and Pokémon Movie season is in session, I like watching older movies as well. I was watching "The Guardian Gods of the Water Capital: Latios and Latias" the other day and ended up crying at it! Your childhood memories of the summer when you first watched a movie truly engraves it into your heart, but I feel that as you keep growing older and gain more life experience, the movie just becomes more and more emotional to you. This is why I pour my heart and soul into the dubbing of this movie, for the sake of all the children who will be watching a Pokémon movie for the first time this year.

We can't wait for this year's movie to premiere!
This is a truly heartfelt interview with Shoko-tan, where she really lets her feelings out!!
Now we're curious, can you tell us a bit about the character you play in "The Archdjinni of Rings: Hoopa"?

Mary is a girl with slight magic powers who watches over Hoopa alongside her brother Barza, played by Tatsuya Fujiwara. She and Hoopa have been together ever since she was a child, and grew up like siblings. She currently keeps watching over Hoopa, feeling both like an older sister and a mother to it, coming across as a noble, strong and cool woman.



Tell us some of the highlights of this year's movie!

It's Hoopa's special ability that lets it summon all kinds of Pokémon! It's incredibly showy! More legendary Pokémon than ever before show up, making for a veritable legendary festival that leaves even Hollywood astounded!

Groudon! Giratina! Lugia! And more! Which do you like better? Even if you enjoy multiple different generations, when your favorite legendary Pokémon shows up, you still really feel all that excitement and good emotions bubble up inside you and go all "whoosh!"

You only get to experience watching this year's Pokémon movie on the big screen this one summer, and I think it'd be an extremely valuable experience that'll create memories for a lifetime! I want you all to go to the theater and make sure you get the experience of seeing this year's Pokémon movie, this rush of legends, right there in the theater chair, with your own naked eyes!



As she tells us how much she wants us to get the true theatrical experience of the movie, Little Glee Monster, performers of the theme song for this year's short, "Pikachu and the Pokémon Musicians", come on stage!
They perform the short's theme song "Gaogao All Stars live!



Monsters! Monsters! Oh Yeah!!!!!!!




Pikachu and Hoopa start dancing, too!



Children, other family members, this is a playful song made for singing and dancing along to, so we hope you'll all enjoy listening to it in the theater, manaka from Little Glee Monster said.
I almost cried just from seeing Pikachu and Hoopa dance along with you, Shoko-tan added.

And here is the "Pokémon VISA Card" and "Pokémon VISA Prepaid" you've been curiously awaiting.
"How do you want to use it?", we asked.



"Even as an adult, I love casually using Pokémon merchandise. Things that can just peek out of my wallet. This is perfect for me. I'll let LGM talk about the prepaid card!"
"They said that the color yellow gives you more luck with money!"

The card makes them all excited.

Here's another bit of surprising news: Incredibly, one of those who sign up for the "Pokémon VISA Card" will be selected by lottery to win a special home visit from Pikachu this Christmas!!!

"Santa is a genius to come up with something like that!"

"If you win, that Christmas will go down in your family history!
"If Pikachu were to come to us, I'd never let it leave!

The event then concluded with Shoko-tan giving the card a very Shokotan-y tagline!



You have to be level 18 or up!


Referring to age as "levels", and thinking of how you gain experience points over time and thus gain levels as your age increases is a positive way of thinking! Pokémon get more fun around level 18 too! Level 18 means you're an adult!, Shoko-tan said.

This has been the Pokémon Credit Card/Prepaid Card Launch Celebration Event, which built excitement with talk about both the movie and the cards!
For more information on the "Pokémon VISA Card" and "Pokémon VISA Prepaid", see this news article!
