New Pokemon Movie, Extremespeed Genesect, Will Debut In July


The next Pokémon movie will feature a special Genesect, and is titled Extremespeed Genesect. The Genesect featured in the new movie will be a red Genesect with a flight mode, according to a report in CoroCoro magazine.


Like other Pokémon movies, Extremespeed Genesect will be accompanied by an animated short. This time, it’s Pikachu and Eeevee Friends. The Extremespeed Genesect movie will be released in Japanese theatres on July 13th, 2013.


No further details regarding the movie have been announced thus far, but CoroCoro do mention a Genesect Wi-Fi giveaway for the Japanese games. The Pokémon Company will be distributing him at Pokémon Centers from January 11th – February 10th.
