The "Mewtwo Special Pack", which contains all Mewtwo-related parts of the anime (the new movie "Extremespeed Genesect: The Awakening of Mewtwo", its related TV special "Mewtwo: The Prologue to Its Awakening", the very first Pocket Monsters movie, "Mewtwo Strikes Back", its TV special sequel "Mewtwo! I Am Here" and the only episode of the TV anime to prominently feature Mewtwo, "Tokiwa Gym! The Final Badge!"), as well as the regular DVD release Pocket Monsters the Movie - Extremespeed Genesect: The Awakening of Mewtwo / Pikachu and its Eievui Friends will be given away to 5 winners each.

An application form has been posted on the official site. Entries must be submitted before February 28th, 2014 12am Japan time, and require a Japanese shipping address. A list of winners will be posted in mid-March.


The Triple Illustration Contest

Like previous years, a drawing contest is held through various Japanese children's magazines. Three separate basic illustrations, with submission forms attached, will be provided through a total of 10 different magazine issues. One illustration features Yveltal, the other features Pikachu and Cleffi, and the third features Diancie and Serena.

Participants will have to cut out this illustration, color it and add details around the basic illustration, and send it in. These illustrations with their submission forms can also be downloaded from the official movie site, so no purchase of the physical magazines is required.
