Zoroark - coming to a Blu-Ray player near you!

As first reported by PokemonAus, Magna Pacific, the publisher of all current Pokémon home media in Australia, will be releasing Blu-Ray versions of the twelfth and thirteenth Pokémon feature films on June 1, 2011. Their release comes amongst a number of other DVD releases including the complete eleventh and twelfth season box sets, the first half of the thirteenth season and the thirteenth movie on DVD.

The Blu-Ray releases of these films are the first Pokémon media announced for the format anywhere in the world, including Japan and the United States. It is unknown at this time if Viz, another major international publisher, intends to publish any Pokémon media on Blu-Ray.

Update:  Miramax Films and Echo Bridge Home Entertainment have announced a Blu-Ray combo pack of movies five and seven, with a release coming May 15, 2011 (Source).
