Pokémon fans in Japan to receive two Pokémon when watching Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction

Pokemon the Movie Diance and the Cocoon of Destruction (Poster-March)The Japanese Pokémon YouTube channel has been updated with a few new videos, including a second full trailer and TV spots for the upcoming Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction. They also highlight the cross-promotional Pokémon activities, with Japan offering a major incentive for fans to go and see the movie – they can receive the Pokémon Diancie and Darkrai for Pokémon X and Y.

The latest trailer features footage of Diancie conversing with Ash, Bonnie, Clemont and Serena. There is also the sight of Team Rocket having been turned into stone. It concludes with Team Rocket explaining how you can receive Pokémon for your 3DS game.

Since Diancie is essentially one of the main characters in the film it makes sense that this Pokémon will be available. Anyone that views the film from 19 July to 30 September will receive a level 50 Diancie that will come with the moves Diamond Storm, Reflect, Moonblast, and Return.

It was previously announced that those who pre-order tickets for the movie will be able to get their hands on Darkrai. A video showing how this works has now been uploaded (ticket buyers will received a code). The video also shows Darkrai in action with the moves Dark Void, Dark Pulse, Phantom Force and Dream Eater.

Watch a movie and receive free Pokémon for Pokémon X and Y? Sounds like a win-win situation, though it is a ploy that began with Pokémon the First Movie, where special cards for the Pokémon Trading Card Game were given out to those that went and viewed the movie on the big screen. 

It remains to be seen whether there will be a similar promotion for those of us outside of Japan, for while Nintendo have revealed that Diancie will be available, they have not yet mentioned how.

The trailer and one of the TV spots also features the film’s theme song, “Yoake no Ryuuseigun” (夜明けの流星群; A Meteor Shower at Dawn), sung by the girl band SCANDAL (for mega cuteness, you can see when this particular spot was first shown on the show Oha Suta, with Pikachu and guest Momoko of Berryz Koubou).

Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction centres on Diancie, the ruler of the underground Diamond Domain. Their energy source is the Heart Diamond, but it is falling apart and Diancie is not yet strong enough to create a new one. After meeting with Ash and Pikachu, they set off together to seek help from the Legendary Pokémon Xerneas. However, they encounter a group of thieves who wish to take the diamond for themselves and use it to release the Legendary Pokémon Yveltal from its cocoon.

Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction opens in Japan on 19 July.
