Volcanion & The Ingenious Magearna is the latest Pokémon movie to surface in Japan, and those who pre-book tickets for this cinematic event will get a Volcanion to use in Pokémon X & Y or Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire.
As revealed in CoroCoro magazine, pre-booking runs from April 16th through July 15th, and the ticket has a serial code for unlocking Volcanion.
Volcanion is a Level 70 'mon and comes with the moves Steam Eruption, Overheat, Hydro Pump and Mist. It also has a Rage Candy Bar, which is nice.
Really? They use up space in Corocoro, space that could have been used to introduce maybe at least one new Pokemon from Sun and Moon, they use up that space to inform people about a distribution. Something that they could have done with a simple YouTube video, or a site update.
All we have right now are the names Sun and Moon, and it looks like we'll be going a whole month without finding ANYTHING out at all.
That looks great, hopefully the west will get Volcanion soon. ^-^
"Only in Japan".
You can hear the rest of the world sigh at these age-old words.
@NinjaAceTrainer it took a while to get Diancie and the like in the West as I recall, right?
@Mr_Zurkon Yeah, but Volcanion is already in the games so they will probably do an event for it (on top of the other monthly events)before gen 7 in the holidays. They might make it so that you have to transfer it from the gen 6 games to sun and moon to trigger an in game event like the Entei, Raikou and Suicune transfer from gen 4 to black and white to catch Zoroark.
@BlatantlyHeroic I imagine we won't see or hear a lot about Sun and Moon until E3. It may even be later than that.
I love Nintendo, but they could stand to take a page from the Pokemon Company on how to treat anniversary years.
@fortius54 They didn't do that for X and Y. By now we SHOULD at least know what starters/legendary Pokemon we're getting.
When will the West get this? I am getting so close to finishing my Live Pokedex. (It is taking so long because I am catching all of them myself, and not trading for them)
Region exclusive events are outdated and annoying. At least the West should get Volcanion eventually without needing to buy a ticket.
Until that official gameplay and video will be show, no more info of Sun & Moon; it's better wait that receive some that simply not is time now; Also, is new generation and it isn't common that another "source" shows info before that Nintendo/Pokemon/Game Freak.
When official info (video gameplay) is shown, now so, be ready for receive info, rumours and more (even in the soup, XD)
Gotta buy em all.
@SakuraHaruka Plenty of details have been revealed for new Pokemon games in CoroCoro before getting the first footage in the past.
Don't worry people, we'll get info soon enough.
Some things as new Pokemon yes (Zoroark was example for Black & White and the recently Magearna for Sun & Moon), but not characters, scenary, gameplay or some similar are shows before of an "Official Video Gameplay Reveal" for "a new generation" (of this Pokemon Direct only was an announcement); and I repeat, when "That" official video appear, now so, be ready for many, many, many info, even before that official images, videos and more (even in the soup XD)
A thing, be patient is better, when you least expect it, a big surprise may appear! ^.^
Just watched the Hoopa movie a week or 2 ago and it was really good, like somebody made a Godzilla movie starring Pokemon.
Which probably means this won't be as good, they seem to vary between action driven and story driven. It's not as obvious as Star Trek - only the even ones are good - but I'm expecting a slower paced movie this time, potentially with a love story, haven't had one of those in awhile.
I've never liked it's design. Looks so weird to me.

Japan only. Shocker.
@BlatantlyHeroic Who are you to say when we "SHOULD" know anything about the new games?
Since when did fans dictate how and when Nintendo/Game Freak/Pokémon Company use coro coro space, reveal new Pokemon or promote games?
Well, "confirmed", next month will there many new info about of Sun & Moon (According to Coro Coro magazine); ok, to wait!!
@CosmoXY Who are you to say that we SHOULDN'T know anything about the new games?
@BlatantlyHeroic If I said anything close to that, you'd actually have a point, but I didn't. I said GameFreak/Nintendo/Pokémon Company will reveal information on their own timeline, not when fans demand that we SHOULD know things now.
Anyway, more corocoro leaks were posted by serebii today noting that Sun/Moon reveals will begin with the April issue.
@CosmoXY Your line of thinking makes no sense. You're literally talking about absolutely nothing. Yes they'll choose when to release info, no one said they wouldn't you mook. The point is that we want info, and this was a wasted opportunity to share new info considering we all know about Volcanion and they didn't have to dedicate a whole page to tell Japanese anime fans that there would be a distribution with tickets.
@BlatantlyHeroic Wow! You must be mentally disabled if you can't understand what I said.
The point is whiney, impatient fanboys like you demanding information now are completely off-base. You have no grounds to demand anything. Saying that Volcanion info in corocoro is a wasted opportunity is incorrect. Don't you think they know exactly what they're doing, you mook?
By the way, "missed opportunity" or "wasted opportunity" are phrases that fanboys use when they are just fussed that they didn't get what they want when they want it. When I see someone using that phrase in cases like this I immediately dismiss them as an entitled child that really knows very little about how marketing and promotion works. Clearly there is information being held back until the time is right to reveal it, not a moment earlier.
And in case you didn't know, corocoro is a magazine targeted to Japanese anime fans that will be interested in a distribution with tickets. Surprise! Yes, we get to enjoy the reveals that come in corocoro, but really, we're not the intended or primary audience. So please stop crying about it and embarrassing yourself.
@CosmoXY Get off of your self-righteous white horse and stop white knighting. If you don't like my opinion, that's fine, but no matter how much you disagree with it you won't change it. I think this was a perfect opprotunity to reveal a trickle amount of information about Sun and Moon. When X and Y were revealed we got information at the exact same time we got the logos, and that was around the beginning of that year to boot. There's no reason why we can't expect to have at least a bit of information from the next games in Corocoro, and there wasn't any reason for it to feature Volcanion in any capacity for the third time in a row.
It was wasted potential, no matter what you want to argue. Going a whole month after hyping everyone up for the "reveal" is just bad marketing, because right now we don't really have any reason to be excited for Sun and Moon anyway.
@BlatantlyHeroic Sigh. Next month. Hang in there.
I'm okay with waiting if it means I can skip the movie.
