Pokemon XY the Movie:  Cocoon of Destruction

A new Pokemon movie called Pokemon XY the Movie:  Cocoon of Destruction is on the horizon and some of the details about the movie, as well as a trailer, have been revealed.

The plot of the movie, which is based upon the XY TV series and games, involves a Great Destruction that wreaked havoc in the Kalos region, making life become extinct.  The Destruction Pokemon Yveltal is said to have been the cause of this horrific event.  Once Yveltal destroyed all life in the region, he turned into a Cocoon of Destruction, in which he still sleeps.  Opposing Yveltal was Xerneas, the Life Pokemon.  Only he had the power needed to restore balance against Yveltal’s destructive nature and restore life to both humans and pokemon.  In the movie, it is said that the two legendaries will go toe-to-toe in an epic battle.

Pokemon XY the Movie:  Cocoon of Destruction is the first XY series movie as well as being the 17th Pokemon movie.  It was directed by Kunihiko Yuyama.

The movie was originally announced in theaters during the showing of Pokémon the Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened, via a movie trailer.  Then, in December of 2013, the January 2014 issue of CoroCoro confirmed the title, along with the official announcement being made.  The first movie poster also confirmed the presence of some of the rumored Mega Evolutions which were to be included in the movie.

The Pikachu short, Pikachu, What’s This Key For? will be shown along with the movie.  It will feature a new pokemon called Klefki, a small, grayish-white pokemon which looks similar to a key on a key ring

Including Yveltal and Xerneas, the film will feature 12 Mega Evolutions, one of which will be Mewtwo.  Other featured pokemon will include the Mega Evolutions of Absol, Blastoise, Blaziken, Charizard, Garchomp, Gardevoir, Lucario, Scizor and Venusaur.

Among the human characters in Pokemon XY the Movie:  Cocoon of Destruction will be Ash; Ash’s young friend Serena, who is just getting started on her training adventures; Clement, a genius-level inventor;  Bonnie, Clement’s little sister; and of course, the infamous Jessie and James of Team Rocket.

In addition to the aforementioned pokemon, Ash’s Pikachu, Team Rocket’s Meowth, Jessie’s Wobbuffet, Chespin, Fennekin and Froakie will make appearances in the movie.

A special promotion is being held for those who see the movie premiere in Japanese theaters.  Fans will be given the opportunity to vote for the type of bonus gift that they would like to receive when they buy advanced tickets.  Their choices will be:  Darkrain, Jirachi, Manaphy or Victini.

The release date for Pokemon XY the Movie:  Cocoon of Destruction is set for for July 19 of this year in Japan.  There does not seem to be any information available about when or if the movie will be brought to other audiences around the globe.  The first episode of the XY TV series will premiere in the U.S. on January 18 at 8:30 a.m. (ET, PT) on the Cartoon Network.

    @Julian Well first off, Mewtwo was brought back into the anime when he was traveling with Brock and Misty, and the Mewtwo was a completely a different Mewtwo, the one from the Genesect movie was a female Mewtwo while the one from earlier in his life was male, you can tell by their voices.

    Lysandre will probably be in the anime series instead as the movies do not follow the anime. Thats what mewtwo never remembered ash in the genesect film.

    Hmm…. I doubt that Lysandre will be in the new movie, since his primary interest is to destroy everything, and AZ isn’t quite yet known to by Ash/Satoshi, meaning that the machine he made may not exist at all.
