1st Pokémon XY Movie's New Trailer, Teasers, Darkrai Intro Posted

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Both Darkrai & Diancie to be given as gifts to moviegoers

The Pokémon Company Japan channel began streaming the second full trailer and two more teaser trailers for Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction film, as well as an introduction video for the Darkrai Pokémon, on Thursday. The new trailers feature the movie's theme song "Yoake no Ryūsei-gun" (Daybreak Meteor Shower) by the girl band SCANDAL.

AKB48 idol member Mayu Watanabe ("Mayuyu") narrates the Pokémon short "Pikachu Kore Nanno Kagi?" (Pikachu, What's This Key For?) The short and the main feature introduce four Pokémon, including Darkrai. Among the guest voices are Yoshiko Mita (Xerneas), Kouichi Yamadera (Ninja Riot), Shoko Nakagawa (Mirisu Steel), Rika Adachi (Marilyn Frame), and the comedy duo Nakagawa-ke (Merushi and Algus Steel).

Advance ticket buyers receive a special gift code to enter into their Nintendo 3DS in order to unlock a Darkrai from the Pokémon XY game. Diancie will also be given to viewers who see the film starting July 19. The first 300,000 moviegoers will receive a Transformation Clear File Bag.

Darkrai is a Dark-type Legendary Pokémon whose techniques include Dark Void, which puts opponents to sleep; Dream Eater, which restores Darkrai's HP; and Nightmare, which slowly decreases the opponent's HP.

The special prize is exclusively for theater audiences. Fans can purchase movie tickets starting April 19, and can obtain the special gift until September 30. In addition, the first 30,000 people who purchase their tickets in advance will also receive a Pokémon clear folder.

Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction will premiere on July 19. The film is set in a country called Diamond Ormpire, where the Holy Diamond resides as the country's source of energy. The country falls into chaos when the Legendary Jewel Pokémon Diancie—the keeper of the Holy Diamond—loses her power to control it. As a result, Diancie seeks the help of Ash and his friends to restore the Holy Diamond.

Update: The Dark Hole move is known as Dark Void in English. Thanks, Tenbyakugon
