Cocoon of DestructionThe official Japanese Pokemon movie site has updated with a teaser synopsis for the first XY movie, Cocoon of Destruction. Thanks goes to Franco T. for the translation below!

Long ago in the Kalos region, the "Great Destruction" extinguished all lives.

This "Great Destruction" was caused by Yvetal, a Pokemon that absorbs the life energy of all living things. Once Yvetal destroyed everything, it changed into a "Cocoon of Destruction," which it still sleeps in today.

When the Great Destruction occurred, the only one able to resist Yvetal's power was Xerneas, the Life Pokemon. It was said that Xerneas could give life to people and Pokemon.

Now, the journey to encounter the two legendary Pokemon begins!

His unnerving gaze is fixated on my grandmother's necklace. He must fancy it, but I can't part with it... it was her greatest treasure, and she was mine.

That child's blood-red eyes...

Cartoon Network will be playing a widescreen, digitally remastered version of Mewtwo Strikes Back tomorrow at 8:30 AM. The movie was originally released by 4Kids and Warner Bros. in March 2000 when the trend was to crop kids' movies to "full screen" to fit the aspect ratio of 4:3 televisions, which were common back in the 90s/early 2000s. This was to avoid "black bars" above and below the picture. But since most people have widescreen TVs now, that's no longer a problem, and the film has been restored to its original widescreen ratio. Hopefully it will be re-released too!

Next Saturday, Cartoon Network will also play the Genesect movie at 8:30 AM followed by the half-hour Mewtwo - Prologue to Awakening prequel.

The following is some information about X and Y that we've known for a while, specifically pertaining to its hidden Legendary Pokemon. We were asked to hold off posting what you see below until today's date, so enjoy!

  • Diancie in Pokemon X and YDiancie is Rock/Fairy, 2'04", 19.4 lbs. #151. It is known as the Jewel Pokemon. "It can instantly create many diamonds by compressing the carbon in the air between its hands."
  • Diancie's signature move is Diamond Storm, a physical Rock-type attack. A bunch of diamonds are created and thrown at the enemy. "The user whips up a storm of diamonds to damage opposing Pokemon. This may also raise the user's Defense stat." It has 100 power and 95% accuracy. Diancie can also learn Moonblast, Safeguard, and Light Screen.
  • Diancie is not related to Carbink on its Pokedex evolution page. However it could be a Manaphy/Phione situation. Or maybe the diamonds it throws turn into Carbink after a couple million years? :p
  • At Level 100 with no EV training, Diancie's stats can be 222/236/300/236/344/135.
  • Hoopa in Pokemon X and YHoopa is Psychic/Ghost, 1'08", 19.8 lbs. #152. It is known as the Mischief Pokemon. "It gathers things it likes and pushes them through its loop to teleport them to a secret place."
  • Hoopa's signature move is Hyperspace Hole, a special Psychic-type attack. A dark hole is created in the ground, Hoopa goes through it, then comes out behind the enemy and hits them. "Using a hyperspace hole, the user appears next to the target and strikes. This also hits a target using Protect or Detect." It's got 80 power and N/A accuracy. Hoopa can also learn Psychic, Shadow Ball, and Trick Room
  • At Level 100 with no EV training, Hoopa's stats can be 301/231/154/315/296/177.
  • Volcanion in Pokemon X and YVolcanion is Fire/Water, 5'07", 429.9 lbs. #153. "It expels its internal steam from the arms on its back. It has enough power to blow down a mountain."
  • Volcanion's signature move is Steam Eruption, a special Water-type attack. "The user immerses the target in superheated steam. This may also leave the target with a burn." It's got 110 power and 95 accuracy. Volcanion can also learn Flare Blitz, Overheat, and Explosion.
  • Volcanion is related to the Lumiose City blackouts.
  • At Level 100 with no EV training, Volcanion's stats can be 275/254/276/247/235/176.
  • Mega Latios and Latias in Pokemon X and YThere are no other Mega Evolutions in the game aside from Mega Latios and Mega Latias, which look the same. They both retain their original Dragon/Psychic typing.
  • Celebi remains Psychic/Grass.
  • The extra meteor for Deoxys at the Fossil Lab is a Red Herring. It's just another attack forme meteor.
  • (The images of the Pokemon above come from Smealum.net.)
