- What kind of movie is “The Cocoon of Destruction and Diancie”?
This year, we’re doing a road movie for the first time in years. The setting of the movie will change many times as Satoshi and his friends continue their journey, from a medieval-esque town to a shopping mall in a modern city, all the way to the forbidden forest where the Cocoon of Destruction lies. The movie is themed around the group’s interaction with Diancie and her butlers as they travel and the fun they all have as they move from place to place, and I think we managed to depict the fun Satoshi and the others have on their journeys better than ever before.
- What kind of Pokémon is this new Mythical Pokémon “Diancie”?
The Diamond Ore Country is a country deep underground, where the Melecie live in peace and prosperity. Diancie is the princess of this country, but she’s completely unaware of the outside world. She’s coming out into the outside world for the first time, and going on a journey with Satoshi, and while she’s a bit out of touch with everything and her intuition is a bit off at times, that’s pretty natural for someone in her position. Like natural diamond (laughs). We made use of these character traits to create a lot of humorous situations I think you’ll all enjoy.
- What about the Rocket Gang and the pair of thieves that go after Diancie?
Diancie’s main trait is that it can create diamonds. While Satoshi and his friends aren’t that interested in such things, it goes without saying that a Pokémon that can create diamonds would be of great interest to many people. Riot is a ninja who uses Keromatsu’s final evolved form, Gekkouga. Marilyn is a female thief who uses Fokko’s final evolved form, Mafoxy. We designed her with a bit more sex appeal than any earlier character, to give the adults a little bonus. Earlier Pokémon movie villains have mostly been serious and focused on their various missions, but since the villains this time are going after diamonds, we’re portraying them in a more light-hearted way. I think their amusing exchanges and interactions will be one of the movie’s highlights.
As for the Rocket Gang, since it’s pretty obvious they’re were going to go after Diancie because of the diamonds, we actually had them succeed in capturing the Pokémon in question this time, so you’re going to go “Wow, they actually succeeded for the first time ever!?”. Or maybe you’ll just wonder how they’re going to mess up afterwards, but it’s still something you should look forwards to seeing in the theater.

"The chain of justice—the system—never ends…"
Well I wouldn’t wanna steal it. Hehe. But thanks for the offer, I will think about it. I really appreciate the gesture :)
Oh my god, I DID THIS! I didn’t have to write it out, perse, but I looked at “Earth’s Response” from the Songs of Experience and how it as about an abused woman tied to her abuser by something (probably a pregnancy, it’s been a while). I got a A on it.Wow congrats haha. What a coincidence ^^
I mean, you said you needed an idea. Maybe that could be an idea?
Wow congrats haha. What a coincidence ^^

The new summary for the PokeVision episode meant to air alongside long-awaited Iris special reveals that Serena wants to make a video of herself after seeing the video of No. 1 Kalos Idol, Elle.
Now, this doesn’t necessarily confirm that Serena decides that she wants to be an Idol, but the fact she’s making her own video right after seeing Elle seems to imply Serena wants to be like her. Now this is a good thing, because Serena is finally letting go of her passive self and engaging in something she llikes and finds interesting. I imagine some will instantly jump to conclusion that Serena being an Idol would be a bad thing as it wouldn’t help promoting Serena as more than just a fanservice character. But being an idol in Pokemon world seems different somehow.
There has been one other instance in this anime where we saw a character wanting to become an Idol.
That is right, Marina.
Her goal, unlike most other Trainers, is to be a Pokémon Idol. The specifics of being a Pokémon Idol are never made clear in the anime, but one aspect of it seems to entail putting on a show while battling.
Now, this sounds an awful lot like Contests. In fact, Marina is later shown to be doing Contests during DP - so there is definitely some correlation between the two. But even if there is, it sounds good to me. Why? Because not only would it allow the writers to showcase the customization feature from the games, thus dressing up Serena in various outfits (or maybe in a single one like Dawn had for her contests) but if it really is true that battling is involved, then, that is all I need to hear.
So far, we know that Serena dresses up in a skimpy outfit, that Bonnie is the director and that Clemont is behind the camera. Where does that leave Ash? If Serena really is aiming to be an idol, and if the writers stick to the idea of ‘being an idol’ = ‘having to battle’, it would finally allow Serena to enter the world of battling. And that is where Ash’s role would fall. I am truly hoping that the PokeVision episode, if establishing ‘being an idol’ as Serena’s aspiration, that Serena comes to realize that there is more to being a Pokemon Idol than just looking cute and that she learns she needs to become a bit more active on the battle department.
Then again, all of this above could mean nothing if Serena ends up dropping this video shooting after realizing it’s not her thing. After all, we still have no idea if Serena’s a character who will get a concrete goal or if she will be the type of character to undergo a journey of self-realization while looking for a goal, thus kinda making it a goal by itself.
Only time will tell.
Pokemon Smash is showing a longer, 90 seconds trailer for the new Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction movie later today.
