Movie 11 Web site updated
After the March issues of CoroCoro Comics and Famitsu magazine revealed the title and stars of the 11th Pokémon movie, Giratina and the Sky's Bouquet: Shaymin, the official movie Web site has been updated with images of both Shaymin and Giratina's new "origin form."
The site, located at pokemon-movie.jp, still features the trailer and posters revealed in December. However, the site now has minimal information on Shaymin and Giratina's origin form, neither of which were officially announced until this week.
Giratina's appearance in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and on the main page of the movie Web site is "another form." The origin form, which has not yet appeared in a video game, is both lighter and larger at 650 kilograms (approx. 1,433 pounds) and 6.9 meters (approx. 22.64 feet). The more familiar "another form" weighs 750 kilograms (approx. 1,653.47 pounds) and is 4.5 meters (approx. 14.76 feet) tall.
According to the Web site, Giratina's origin form is visible when the Ghost/Dragon-type legendary moves between dimensions. According to Movie 10, Dialga and Palkia reside in the respective dimensions of time and space.
Giratina and the Sky's Bouquet: Shaymin will enter Japanese theaters July 19. An English-language release can be expected in 2009. Other legendary Pokémon implied to appear in the movie are Regigigas, Dialga and Palkia.
The Pokémon Company has not yet announced how Shaymin will be distributed to players of Diamond and Pearl, and it is unknown if the origin form of Giratina will appear in any future games.
