    By magnificent, it means the two gods will be fighting in the background while Ash’s intrepid team does nearly nothing in the action but tries to use friendship powers to stop the world from exploding, unless you want his Froakie to get toasted horrendously.

    You know, just like nearly every single movie.

    • subsamuel01

      The original pokemon movie with Mew Two was the best. It had a darker ton to it, and it was unique, every movie after that basically copied the same formula.

    • Noctis Lee

      i choose pokemon manga better then this shitty Ash pokemon anime

    • konsama

      That is until he gets the help from a cute legend to help out, that judging by that pic seems to be jirachi or Vitcitin surely, Especially he met victini previously. Then he will pass the climax battle just cheering for him till his screams and possibly tears reach to his heart and get a super sayan boost to submit both legends,

      And assuming the XY show will follow the story of the game, in this movie we will see the cocoon Lysandre didn’t get for the cannon thing.

      • the big pic under the XY legends is actually from the Pikachu short before the movie. there’s going to be a poll from those and the people who go see it in theaters will be able to download a special version of it.
        you know, because japan doesn’t get enough events that no one else does
        at least that’s what serebii says differently from this

      • AuraGuyChris

        That’s a Pikachu Short, you know.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      yeah, you got a point there

    • Sardorim

      How do you know this so well? You words are a masterpiece in written form!

      Are you secretly a Pokemon Movie Director? Don’t worry, I wont tell anyone your secret!

      • He just give a spoiler for the movie story T_T

    • [S]unjΔy of Equestria

      Sums up nearly every Pokemon movie, lol

  • shuyai

    bad thing is i can already see the ending….a draw

    • AuraGuyChris

      And everyone laughs.

      • konsama

        And Yveltal goes flying in the horizon.

        • Ferrick

          and ash walks towards the horizon with narrator’s monologue on how important pokemon is

  • konsama

    Obviously the story will cover when the pokemon server crashed and all regions lost contact to kalos, stranding everyone without their beloved pokemon from unova or kanto. And Ash has to fight without his hax charizard who will arrive at the last point of the movie carrying prof oak and an item called charizardite. After that ash will beat lysandre and his Yveltal along Xerneas help and charizard XY and everyone lives happy, but with the connection with kalos cut out permanently, and everone will have to leave and go back to hoenn, where neo aqua and neo magma has started working by some misterious old man, and is even gathering some of the original rockets, along former E4 leaders whose career got ended by a kid that resembles a lot of Ash ketchum but is a sharp and cunning trainer.

    • Sardorim

      Hoenn Confirmed!

  • Earthjolly

    No battle will ever be more magnificent than Mewtwo vs Mew or Palkia vs Dialga vs Darkrai

    • AuraGuyChris

      The first one.

      The second one? Darkrai was being a rag doll for those two to beat on.

      • Earthjolly

        Even if he did get beat at least he had balls to stand up to them instead of cower away hmmm.

      • DragKudo

        What?! He was taking hits by the gods of time and space like a boss and he was able to hold there power back from destroying the world. Darkrai is a beast.

    • Yups. That Palkia vs Dialga battle is so good. You know, that was one of the best Pokemon movies I think. Of course, our hearts will always love the earlier movies though.

    • AndyLC

      Pikachu vs Magicarp

  • C_Diamond

    “Will include many legendary and mythical Pokémon”

    Hmmm….How about the fusion of reshiram,zekrom and kyurem?

    • AuraGuyChris

      It’ll be a kick in the nuts if they were talking about the ones in the short instead of the movie.

      Even more so if it’s just all Legendaries in a fake intro.

  • jugss


  • Renaldi Saputra

    at least better than watching the anime, well, you know

  • Tonton Ramos

    So in July 18(a day before the premier of this movie in japan) Pokemon Trainer returns to Smash Bros. 4?

    • Astralwyrm

      Mewtwo for the win!!!!!

    • AuraGuyChris

      The game hardly mentions the anime at all beyond that Misty trophy in Melee. It’d rather promote a game instead so…wait till the sequel of Gen VI comes out, or a spin-off like Pokemon Trozei 2.

  • PlatinumMad

    I want to see Oblivion Wing in a movie. It looks so cool the game.

    By “magnificent battle” they mean like when Arceus kicked the creation trio’s asses?

  • s07195

    I see another Pikachu short in the magazine… Those are always my favorite bits! :DD

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Would be nice to see a pokemon movie with an original cast of
    characters dealing with legendaries for a change, other then using Ash and company. Like the Male main trainers that only get small cameos in the movies. yeah Whatevs.

    • Herok♞

      I want to say that wouldn’t make sense, why would all the male main characters be in Kalos, not to mention there timelines would match at all with everyone being OP then etc. At least with Ash we all know why he is there and he is the best at dealing with them.

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        O_o I meant just Calme.

    • J_Joestar

      or maybe at least have Ash’s former companions instead on their own adventures.

  • Bigabu Beaze

    Talk about LBX Danball Senki’s “Magnificent Battle” between Sena Arata and Ban!

  • It’s gonna be a draw.
    Nuff said.

    • echokanon

      I wish there is some role for Zygarde, kinda like Rayquaza would be nice

      • AuraGuyChris

        Judging Zygarde generally sucks as it is, expect the inevitable “IT CAN MERGE WITH THE OTHER TWO” gimmick in a sequel/updated release soon.
