    I’m willing to bet Volcanion will play some part in the movie, being a volcano and all.

  • Princess_Eevee9

    Who would’ve thought when they stated it was going to focus on the Hoenn remakes. But cool can’t wait to hear more info!

  • Highasthesky

    May/Haruka needs to appear in this movie (even though i know she won’t)

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Now whoa now that might just happen.

      • Highasthesky

        Nah, it won’t. I could see it happening if the movie took place in Hoenn, but as people have already stated this movie will take place on some made up island, where they’ll conveniently show up. May/Haruka isn’t required.

        • Princess_Eevee9

          Damn I forgot those rules.

    • AuraGuyChris

      Something tells me she will, but sadly, we’ll be expecting her to have a Mega Blaziken if she does appear…and laugh at Ash for not having a fully-evolved Pokemon yet.

      • Highasthesky

        I would like to think they’d bring her in even if only for marketing. Have her show up in her new attire with her mega bracelet, but there’s another part of me that thinks they’d just shove that in an episode of the anime. They’ve never had a a character return in a movie to my recollection, and i don’t see them of all people trying something new.

    • Eder García

      nah, and considering the pattern, those Ash’s friends from BW will be returning instead of May (haven’t watched BW yet so i don’t know their names)

  • KuroNathan

    where was HG:SS’s movies? *grumble grumble*

    • AuraGuyChris

      Instead of getting a movie, the games were represented by Lyra who got to accompany the DP trio for a few episodes (with a made-up childhood friend nobody cared about). In the end, Dawn received a Cyndaquil out of her presence so it wasn’t wasted.

  • riceisnice

    If they’re going to a different region, at least star a different protagonist rather than a flimsy excuse as to why Ash gets to greet another legendary creature and use the power of friendship to end all suffering.

    • AuraGuyChris

      Ha ha, no. They’ll make a movie-only location where it just so happens that the title Legendaries are there, and Ash gets to see them.

      The anime writers love to death their big loser of a protagonist.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        To be exact the writers only care of the “pokemon” things
        They almost don’t care of the characters even the main protag

      • Princess_Eevee9

        To be fair Ash is getting better.

        • John Smith

          It took him 10 years to be as good in Pokemon as my 8 year old brother.

        • AuraGuyChris

          Sadly, no, he’s not. If you mean the XY saga, he’s gotten trounced by more than a half of the trainer-of-the-day than he wins against them, and oddly he never asks for a rematch when he gets defeated. Not to mention, he stupidly rushes into battle against real monsters and he only gets his sorry butt handed to him so nastily…

          Sorry, but mature-looking Ash is still that BW Ash we all hate.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            He’s even worse very much than another typical kids shounen main characters
            The writer just want Satoshi/Ash not to grow, every time the anime ends, they just want to reset his characterization become 0, as if he is new and fresh to the series

        • Renaldi Saputra

          better? certainly no
          he only repeat the same mistakes, we aren’t watching the growth of him AT ALL
          we’re only wasting time with him

      • Eder García

        looks like XY will be Ash’s last season, if the anime continues a new character will receive the tag from Pikachu and Ash imo.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    I guess this movie will be just a fanservice for omega ruby/alpha sapphire players (not dat kind of fanservice)

    • Vash bane

      it is that kind of fan service we all love some sexy kyogre and awesomely handsome groudon
      (these words make no sense what so ever lol)

      • Renaldi Saputra

        Well, I usually count on pokemon movies for the story
        But it seems this time I can’t count on them

  • jugss

    What? Did they leak already? Where are the new mega evolutions?
    I checked serebii. This news isn’t there.

    • Steven Higgins

      Not Mega Evolutions. “Primal Reversion” IDK how but it they seem to be considered different from Mega Evolution or Form Changes by the company.

  • Aaron K Stone

    Of course because they don’t have any new legendaries to make a new movie each year instead of taking a break they try milking some old ones again.

    • Ben Sylvia

      Well technically they didn’t make a movie about Groudon.

      True, the Jirachi movie had a knock off Groudon, but that doesn’t really count.

  • Ben Sylvia

    Probably will also have Volcanion in it.

    Would make sense, it being fire and water type, goes along with the imagery for Groudon and Kyogre.

    Which means Hoopa and Zygarde will be in the 2016 movie.
    Wonder what we’ll get in 2016, first mumblings of 7th gen, or sequels to X/Y / 3rd version.

    • fancycakes

      I shall call you Sherlock Holmes

  • Quiet Gear Soild

    isn’t this obvious.

  • Vash bane

    its a new movie every year? so im guessing the cast now are going to be the ones in it? (haven’t been keeping up with the anime…so im a month or so behind) . I’m a little curious (since memory is foggy) did ash ever meet groundon? because I think he recognized mewtwo in the last movie (that reminds I really need to watch that other mewtwo movie..)

    • Steven Higgins

      Well there was a Groudon-like creature in the Jirachi movie, but it wasn’t really Groudon. As for the cast Ash’s new companions are Clement, Bonnie and Serena.

  • Eder García

    there goes the possibility for a new season of the anime in Hoenn…

    • raphael

      Yep, is a possibility

  • Michael Chen

    I wish the protagonist on this movie happens to be Brendan.
