Fourteenth Pokémon movie coming 2011
The first Pokémon movie of the Best Wishes! saga will be in theaters in 2011, according to an update made to the official Pokémon movie website.
A trailer of what will be the the fourteenth film of the franchise can be found on the site. It is surrounded by art of Satoshi's Pikachu (Ash's Pikachu) and many of the new Pokémon released with the recent Pokémon Black and White. These include a Kibago (likely Iris's Kibago) and a Mijumaru (likely the recent addition to Satoshi's team). The footage is the same as was shown in cinemas, attached to the thirteenth movie. No plot details, let alone a title, have been confirmed yet.
Pokémon movies typically release in Japan around the middle of July. There has been one new film released every year since 1998, when Mewtwo's Counterattack (Pokémon the First Movie - Mewtwo Strikes Back in English) hit the big screen.
The site also noted the DVD release date for the most recent Pokémon movie, Ruler of Illusions: Zoroark. This film, which is yet to be released in English, will be available to shoppers from December 17, 2010.
