Each movie has Ash and his friends, Cilan and Iris, arriving in Eindoak Town to compete in a battle competition. There, they meet the mythical Pokémon Victini and Damon, a man who aims to use Victini for its power. To add to that, Damon has convinced either Reshiram or Zekrom (depending on the movie) to help him.

Like in the video games Pokémon Black and White, the plots in the paired movies vary slightly. For those who do not mind spoilers, Bulbapedia has a list of differences between versions.

While no exact release date has been confirmed yet, Cinedigm Digital Cinema will show these movies in theaters for a limited one-weekend special event on Dec. 3 and Dec. 4.

The two fourteenth Pokémon movies were released as a double feature last July 16.
