As had been suspected, though not officially confirmed, there is a new Pokemon joining the bright and colorful cast of creatures.
As has become somewhat common for the creators of the Pokemon films, this upcoming summer’s new Pokemon movie will yet again be featuring and highlighting a brand new Pokemon, likely to increase interest.
We now know have confirmation that the Pokemon’s name, #719, is Diancie, a Rock/Fairy-type that appears to be joining the ensemble of tiny legendaries currently inhabited by the likes of Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Shaymin, and others.
Confirmation comes to us by way of this month’s Corocoro. While no word on distribution has surfaced, we do know that Diancie will be featured in the upcoming Pokemon movie, Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie. We will likely have some more information as we edge closer and closer to the summer when the film is released.
For those of you who can read Japanese, below you’ll find an additional scan where we get the name of the movie and Diancie’s inclusion in it.
