The Pokémon Company International has announced that new Pokémon movies have become available on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video and Google Play – namely being Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew and Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea.

Now available in the United States to rent or buy digitally, Lucario and the Mystery of Mew sees Ash unknowingly release a Lucario sealed in a staff once owned by Sir Aaron, at a time long before Poké Balls were made. Confused as to what happened, Lucario looks for answers with Ash joining such journey of discovery.

Whereas Temple of the Sea continues Ash, May, Max and Brock progress through the Battle Frontier. They encounter a travelling family circus who later reveal that they have all shared the same dream that May has, where they see a temple under the sea and with a mysterious Pokémon. That sparks an adventure to discover whether it holds any truth.

It’s unclear whether there are any plans to release the movies through the same digital stores in Europe, but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything.
