The official Pokémon movie website has updated with the second part of the coverage of Yuyama's location scouting report. Translations follow:
This time, Director Yuyama chose Canada as the country he would go scouting in. He went there in search of the landscapes where Yveltal would sleep, where Xerneas would hide, and Diancie would journey.
Part 2: Arrival in the capital, Ottawa
