The official movie website has updated with the thirteenth part of Director Yuyama's scouting report and details on a new contest. Translations follow:

Director Yuyama's Scouting Report

This time, Director Yuyama chose Canada as the country he would go scouting in. He went there in search of the landscapes where Yveltal would sleep, where Xerneas would hide, and Diancie would journey.

Part 13: The Chocolate Store in Stratford

After viewing the largest waterfalls in North America, the Niagara, from below, it's time to look at them "from above". From this angle, the intensity of the water looked completely different than when viewed from below and up, and the majestic stream of swiftly falling water made us forget the time for a while. It's the kind of sight you want to gaze at forever.

After our trip to the falls, we set off for Stratford. While the city is primarily known as North American's leading city in the dramatic arts, it's also a gourmet area. While we were walking through the beautiful riverside park while touring the city, we happened upon a cute chocolate store. We were so impressed with it we worked it into one of the characters in the movie, giving him a knack for chocolate.

The physically fit storekeeper recognized as as being Japanese people from Tokyo and explained he was a practitioner of kendo, whose master lived in Tokyo. I guess we fit the stereotype? Lots of us, the director included, bought some cute chocolates from the store as souvenirs.
