Gobitto, Zorua, Dageki, Zuruzukin to make their anime debut
According to a magazine, Gobitto (Golett) and Zorua, along with a Trainer named Luke will make their debuts in the fortieth episode of Pocket Monsters Best Wishes! entitled 「ゾロア・ザ・ムービー！ポケモンナイトの伝説！！」 Zorua The Movie! The Legend of the Pokémon Knight!! scheduled for June 30. This will be Zorua's TV episode debut; so far, it has only appeared in Ruler of Illusions: Zoroark (Zoroark: Master of Illusions).
According to the episode summary:
「サトシたちが立ち寄った映画館に、あくタイプの〝わるぎつねポケモン〟ゾロアが現れる。ちょうど その時、ポケモントレーナーのルークが映画のヒロインに化けるのが大好きなこのゾロアを主役に、 映画の撮影をしていたのだ。ルークの誘いを受けたサトシたちは、彼が作る映画に出演することになる。 サトシの役は、ゾロアが演じる姫を救出するため、デントが扮する海賊に立ち向かうポケモンナイト だった。慣れない演技に苦戦しながらも、クライマックスシーンの撮影までこぎつけたサトシだったが、 突然乱入者が現れ、これまでの映画の撮影が台無しになってしまいそうになる」
Translation: At a theater, Satoshi and his friends encounter the "Tricky Fox Pokémon" Zorua, a Dark type. A Pokémon Trainer named Luke, making a film starring Zorua, who loves disguising itself as a movie heroine, invites Satoshi and his friends to become involved with the production as well.
Satoshi's role is that of a Pokémon Knight who has to confront a pirate, played by Dent, in order to save the princess. Despite the troubles they have as amateur actors, they finally manage to film everything except for the climax (or everything including the climax, not sure about this part). But suddenly, intruders appear and the movie they've worked so hard on is about to be ruined...
The magazine scans further confirmed that Don George's Don Battle will be a four-episode tournament and is expected to end in the 44th episode of Pocket Monsters Best Wishes! scheduled to air on August 11, 2011. Bel (Bianca), Cabernet (Burgundy), Kenyan, Langley and Shooty (Trip) will participate in the tournament along with Satoshi (Ash Ketchum), Iris and Dent (Cilan). The detail regarding the fixtures have not been revealed yet except a battle in between Shooty and Dent has been confirmed.
Aside from the characters, a Dageki (Sawk) will make its anime debut, and is expected to have a battle against Iris's Emonga (Emolga) in the tournament.
Scheduled for August 18, the 45th episode will be focused on Nyarth (Meowth) and his departure from Rocket-dan (Team Rocket). A Zuruzukin (Scrafty) will also appear in the same episode.
