The official website for the Pokémon XY & Z television anime series announced on December 10 that the anime is getting a two-hour special on December 31. The "Subete no Nazo wo Tokiakase! Pocket Monster XY & Z Kanzen Master Special!!" (All Mysteries Explained! Pokémon XY & Z Complete Master Special!!) special will air from 6:00 a.m.-7:55 a.m. The Pokémon franchise's official YouTube channel began streaming a promotional video for the special on Thursday.
The special will air in two parts. The first half will feature a rerun of the Pocket Monsters XY Tokubetsu Hen: Saikyō Mega Shinka ~Act IV~ (Pokémon XY Special: The Strongest Mega Evolution ~Act IV~) special that originally aired on October 29, as well as the first episode of Pokémon XY & Z, which also aired on October 29.
The second half of the special will look back at the Pokémon XY & Z series so far and provide a complete explanation of "all the mysteries" in the show, including: the secret that Zygarde hides, the goal of Alain and Team Flare, and the strange phenomenon that only seems to happen to Ash and his Greninja. The second half will also preview what will happen in the future of the series, including Ash vs. Alain, Team Rocket vs. Team Flare, and Serena taking on the Pokémon Showcase (TriPokalon in Japanese).
