The Pokémon Company has announced Pokémon the Movie: Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel, which will debut later this year as the latest Pokémon animated film.
This will unsurprisingly star Volcanion, which is the first Fire and Water-type Pokémon to appear in the series.
The story will trace Ash’s continued journey after he meets the Mythical Pokémon when it crashes down from the sky. As the resulting cloud of dust clears, a mysterious force binds the two together and Volcanion, who despises humans, is forced to drag Ash with it as it tries to get away.
They soon arrive in a city constructed with 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, and it is down to Ash and Volcanion to set aside their differences to work together and rescue Magearna before that can happen.
