The official movie website has updated with the final part of Director Yuyama's scouting report and details on other movie-related events. 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.

Final Part: The End of the Journey

We're finally getting close to the premiere of "The Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie"/"Pikachu, What Kind of Keys are These?". The location scouting for the movies took place in October 2013. While we were on this trip, "Pocket Monsters X/Y" were released and the new anime TV series "Pocket Monsters XY" started.

We'll see how we managed to capture the essence of the landscapes we saw and the atmosphere we felt on our journey in this first movie set in the new region. If you keep the various parts of this scouting report in mind while you watch the movie, it just might increase your enjoyment of it.

Summer means Pokémon! The summer of Pokémon is just about to start! "The Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie"/"Pikachu, What Kind of Keys are These?" premieres Saturday July 19th!
