We may be standing at the end of the year, and this may be the last edition of Japanese magazine CoroCoro for the year, but that doesn't mean it didn't include some interesting Pokémon news. This months edition of the magazine has given us more details on the 16th Pokémon movie which will be released in Japan on the 13th of July 2013. If you wish to know more, then read on!
As you can see from the CoroCoro scan above, the movie will be featuring a shiny Genesect, well, in some manner of speaking. Genesect will only be red coloured while its in flight, the rest of the time the Pokémon will be its normal purple colour. This will only be the second time shiny Pokémon have played a lead part in the Pokémon movies, the first being the shiny versions of Raikou, Entei and Suicune in the 13th Pokémon movie, Zoroark - Master of Illusions. The name of the 16th movie has also been confirmed. It will be called Extremespeed Genesect. As always there will be a Pikachu Short to go alongside the movie in Japan. This short will be going by the name of Pikachu & Eevee Friends and as the name suggests will be featuring the very cute Pokémon Eevee.
CoroCoro also revealed that for owners of Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, or Pokémon White 2 in Japan, another event will be running in Pokémon Centre stores giving fans another chance to get their hands on Genesect if they missed out on the original event.
Edit: Thanks to the Pokémon Company's official Japanese Youtube channel, we now have a brief trailer for the 16th movie to share as well. Check it out below!
