Beyond Home Entertainment and Hoyts Cinemas have announced that the sixteenth Pokémon movie, Genesect and the Legend Awakened, will be showing at selected Hoyts cinemas in Australia and New Zealand on 16 and 17 November 2013. The cinematic release will be followed by a DVD release
on 4 December. No Blu-Ray release has been announced as yet.
In celebration of the movie's release, a large competition for Pokémon fans has also been announced, with a major prize valuing over AU$2,300.
The 16th Pokemon movie, Pokemon The Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened is coming to DVD and available in-store from 4th December – $19.95. Fast-tracked from the states for an early release in Australia, the movie features Red Genesect, Shiny Genesect, Mewtwo, Ash, and Pikachu in an action-packed 70-minute feature.
When big trouble threatens the big city, it’s up to Ash, Pikachu, and their friends to stop it!
A peaceful park amid the hustle and bustle seems like the perfect new home for a group of Mythical Pokémon: four Genesect and their red leader. These new neighbors quickly become a problem for the city’s residents, though—they don’t trust people, and they’ve found a dangerous ally in the Legendary Pokémon Mewtwo, whose origins also involve human tampering. But the red Genesect doesn’t want Mewtwo’s help, and their confrontation quickly rages out of control! Can Ash and friends stop these two powerful Pokémon before they destroy the city?
