Earlier this year, around the time that pre-release hype for Pokémon X & Y was somewhat spinning out of control, we told you all about a Cartoon Network event showing Pokémon the Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened for the first time. That took place shortly after the games were released, keeping fans in North America topped up with all of the 'mon they could handle.

The Pokémon Company has now confirmed that the movie has been released on DVD and is available now in North America. A quick browse at some online stores shows that is indeed the case, though we haven't seen it in Europe as yet. The marketing spiel outlines the basic plot, while promising a little extra for early buyers.

Catch the latest big-screen adventures of Ash, Pikachu, and friends in Pokémon the Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened on DVD. Don’t miss the action as a group of Genesect run rampant in a bustling city and attract the attention of the Legendary Pokémon Mewtwo. When these Pokémon turn on each other, our heroes must stop them all before they destroy the city!

Also, while supplies last, copies of the DVD will include a Pokémon TCG card as a special bonus for collectors. Look for specially marked packages to get this limited-edition card.

Will you be trying to catch this one as soon as possible?
