The website Zap2it is listing a Pokémon short, "Pokémon: Hoopa, The Mischief of Pokémon," followed by Pokémon the Movie: Hoopa and the Clash of Ages on Canadian television channel Teletoon for Saturday, November 14 at 10:00 a.m. EST. The broadcast will be the first time the film has been available in North America.

The film premiered in Japan on July 18, and features the main cast of Pocket Monsters XY, Legendary Pokémon from past generations, and movie original characters.

The Pokémon Company describes the film's story:

The 70-minute animated movie takes Ash, Pikachu, and their friends to a desert city by the sea. Here they meet the Mythical Pokémon Hoopa, which has the ability to summon things—including people and Pokémon—through its magic rings.

After a scary incident, they learn of a story about a brave hero who stopped the rampage of a terrifying Pokémon long ago. Now, the threat that has been bottled up for years is in danger of breaking loose again! Can Ash help his new friend overcome the darkness within…or will a dangerous secret erupt into a clash of legends?

The Pikachu to Pokémon Ongakutai (Pikachu & the Pokémon Music Band) anime short screened before the film when it premiered in Japan.

The 2014 Pokémon film, Pokémon the Movie XY: Hakai no Mayu to Diancie (Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction), premiered in Japan in July 2014.
