The Pokémon Company International announced on Friday that it will release three new Limited Club Color Pokémon the Movie Original Nintendo 3DS LL (also known as 3DS XL overseas) systems in Japan to tie-in with the Pocket Monster XY: Hakai no Mayu to Diancie (Pokémon XY: Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie) film and the World Cup. The consoles come in red, white, and blue. They feature a decal of Ash and Pikachu with Legendary Pokémon Xerneas and Yveltal.
The consoles will be distributed exclusively during home matches by the Urawa RED Diamond, F.C Tokyo, and Yokohama F. Marinos teams. Those hoping to get one of the variants must enter a raffle based upon the score of the team during that match.
Pocket Monster XY: Hakai no Mayu to Diancie opens in Japan on July 19.
Pokémon X and Pokémon Y shipped for the Nintendo 3DS worldwide on October 12. The Pokémon XY (Pokémon the Series: XY) anime series tie-in premiered on October 17 in Japan. Cartoon Network then showed two episodes from Pokémon the Series: XY in the United States on October 19, right after the American premiere of lasts year's Pokémon film, Pokémon the Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened (Gekijōban Pocket Monster Best Wishes! Shinsoku no Genosekuto: Myuutsū Kakusei). Pokémon the Series: XY began airing on Cartoon Network weekly on January 18.
