The Pokemon Company began streaming three new TV commercials for its Pokémon the Movie: ExtremeSpeed Genesect film on Thursday. The videos feature the film's special guest cast, including veteran voice actor Kouichi Yamadera (Red Genesect), actress Reiko Takashima (Mewtwo), and Takashi Yoshimura and Kenta Tokui of the comedy duo Heisei Nobushikobushi (Eric and Geodude/Ishitsubute from Pokémon Hills). In addition, the ads introduce Shoko Nakagawa, the voice of Sylveon, and Atsuko Maeda, former AKB48 member and narrator for the "Pikachu to Eevee Friends.” short.
Kunihiko Yuyama's feature film is billed as the final chapter of Pocket Monsters: Best Wishes! (Pokémon: Black and White). It will have a confrontation between the legendary Pokémon ExtremeSpeed Red Genesect and Mewtwo, who returns in this installment in an alternate form. Kouichi Yamadera and Masachika Ichimura voiced Mew and Mewtwo, respectively, in Pokemon: The First Movie.
The film will open in Japanese theaters on July 13.
