The first trailer has arrived for the upcoming “Pokémon the Movie XY&Z: Volcanion and the Tricky Magearna,” which opens July 16 in Japan.
Naturally, it’s in Japanese, but it’s relatively easy to piece together the plot. But just in case, here’s the official synopsis, courtesy of The Pokémon Company International:
In this latest Pokémon full-length feature film, a mysterious force binds Ash to the Mythical Pokémon Volcanion when it falls from the sky. Volcanion can’t get away, and Ash is dragged along as it continues on its mission. They arrive in a city of cogs and gears, where a corrupt minister has stolen the ultimate invention: the Artificial Pokémon Magearna, created 500 years ago. The minister plans to use Magearna’s mysterious power to take control of the mechanical kingdom. Can Ash and Volcanion work together to rescue Magearna? One of the greatest battles in Pokémon history is about to unfold!
