Meloetta quietly revealed in M15 poster
Completely overshadowed by the Black and White 2 announcement, a new poster for the fifteenth Pokémon movie was revealed today. It reveals the title for the accompanying Pikachu short—and a special guest star, Meloetta!
The Kyurem VS the Sacred Swordsman: Keldeo poster was leaked online at around the same time Pokémon Smash! aired. It depicts many of the Pokémon species and characters to appear in the movie, with stars Keldeo and Kyurem getting the most prominence.
At the bottom of the poster is information pertaining to the Pikachu short, to be titled Meloetta's Glittering Recital (Japanese: メロエッタのキラキラリサイタル Meroetta no kirakira risaitaru). The Melody Pokémon Meloetta is set to make its on-screen debut in this short.
This is the first official source to acknowledge Meloetta in any form.
A number of pre-Generation V Pokémon are shown in the Recital graphic. Included in the collection are Bulbasaur, Squirtle, Pikachu, Meowth, Psyduck, Chikorita, Totodile, Togepi, Torchic, Piplup, Snivy, and Oshawott. Pokémon species such as these have been sparsely seen since the beginning of the Best Wishes anime series in 2010.
Kyurem VS the Sacred Swordsman: Keldeo and Meloetta's Glittering Recital debut in Japanese theaters July 14, 2012.
