The Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie

A few teaser summaries have been released for The Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie, the 17th Pokemon movie. Thanks goes to Puddizzle for translating them!

The Dialand. A beautiful, pristine world, home to many Carbink. It's known that it's underground somewhere, but nobody knows its exact location. And inside the Dialand, there's a gigantic diamond, named the Lifestone. The Lifestone has been the source of energy for the residents of the Dialand for ages. Historically, there's been one sole Pokemon who can create and maintain this giant gem: Dialand's princess, Diancie. However, she's unable to do her job. And thus, time goes on...

With Diancie unable to maintain the Lifestone, its time draws near...

At this rate, the Dialand will collapse.

Diancie meets Ash and Pikachu, and with their help, search for the Life Pokemon, Xerneas...

In this movie, Diancie's the princess of the Dialand, an underground world home to Pokemon like Carbink. But now, its keystone gem shines no more, leading to Dialand's destruction...

Diancie meets Ash and Pikachu, and with their help, search for the Life Pokemon, Xerneas. But they encounter a cocoon, a shell for the resting Yveltal, who once destroyed the entirety of the Kalos region.

Update: Pokemon.com has removed the screenshot of Diancie's Pokedex entry below and all information regarding Carbink. It seems they may have released the info earlier than intended.

Diancie

The official English website has revealed Diancie along with new information about its relationship to Carbink. As we confirmed a few months ago, it is not Carbink's evolution. Diancie's ability is Clear Body. You can see shiny Diancie in the first screenshot below. Its diamonds are darker pink.

Diancie is an extremely rare Pokémon, created when Carbink undergoes a strange mutation. Its glittering pink body is said to be the most beautiful sight in the world.

Groups of Carbink tend to gather around Diancie, but Diancie pays them little heed and acts only according to its own will.

Diancie can create diamonds out of thin air by compressing the carbon in the atmosphere with its hands. It uses these jewels in battle to attack enemies and protect itself.

Diancie, the Legendary Rock/Fairy type, has officially been revealed in CoroCoro! It will star in the next movie, which is now titled The Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie. Next to Diancie is a description that reads, "In battle, it creates a bunch of diamonds from both of its hands to protect itself."

In December, we posted some exclusive information about Diancie, Hoopa, and Volcanion that you can read here. We can now also exclusively reveal its Pokedex page from Pokemon Y, as you can see below.
