Alternate Victini movie confirmed
The official Japanese Pokémon movie website updated today with a new announcement, confirming the leaked CoroCoro scans. For the first time in the history of Pokémon, the upcoming movie will have two versions similar to Pokémon Black And White. The movie variations will be entitled as Victini and the White Hero: Reshiram featuring the Vast White Pokémon, Reshiram while the other one will be featuring the Deep Black Pokémon, Zekrom entitled as Victini and the Black Hero: Zekrom. Similar to the Generation V games release, both of the variations for the movie will also be released simultaneously in the Japanese theaters on the same day, July 16, 2011. Both versions of the upcoming Pokémon movie will have the same plot, storyline and characters but the version mascots will be different for both variations.
Nikkan Sports, an online sports newspaper has posted a brief summary for the movie.
Special thanks to Umeko, for the translation of the summary:
The main character Satoshi and his Pikachu are participating in the harvest festival battle held in Eind Oak, where the People of the Land live; the story is the same up until they meet the mysterious Pokemon Victini, but the legendary Pokemon differs for each of the two movies. "Black Hero" features Zekrom, which first appears when it acknowledges a human in pursuit of "dreams," and "White Hero" features Reshiram, which first appears when it acknowledges a human in pursuit of "truth."
No other information has been revealed yet.
