Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction Moving Closer to Western Release
The latest animated Pokémon movie, Pokémon XY The Movie – The Cocoon of Destruction & Diancie, is officially heading to the west in 2014 according to the Pokémon Company International. The movie will be known as Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction in the west but no release date has been announced yet, as the Pokémon Company is still listening to bids for broadcast rights. The movie will be out on the 19th July in Japan so hopefully we won’t have to wait for too long after that.
The Pokémon Company will surely be hoping that the movie will capitalize on the popularity of Pokémon X & Y which together have now sold almost 12 million copies worldwide and are the fastest selling games to date on the Nintendo 3DS. This information was announced in a press release which you can read in full below.
A leading children’s entertainment franchise, Pokémon features a wide array of offerings including video games, the Pokémon Trading Card Game, animation, and various licensed products. Pokémon X and Pokémon Y recently became the fastest-selling video games for the Nintendo 3DS system, selling nearly 12 million copies worldwide since their October 2013 launch and adding to the more than 245 million Pokémon video games sold to date. With more than 20 billion Pokémon TCG cards shipped globally and animation licensed for broadcast in more than 160 countries and in more than 30 languages, Pokémon is a long-standing hit among fans around the world.
