Director Yuyama's Scouting Report

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 14: To the Forests of Flowerpot Island

After checking out of our hotel the fifth day, we went by foot to the port in Tobermory. We were starting today's scouting with a trip around the Bruce Peninsula and the surrounding areas.

We set out on Lake Huron, one of the Great Lakes, by motorboat, commenting on how beautiful the crystal clear the water was. On our way, we got to look down at a ship that had sunk at the end of the 19th century. Eventually we arrived at our destination, Flowerpot Island, which is located in Georgian Bay at the northeastern part of the lake. The island is named after two thin rock formations, one big and one small, shaped by nature to what resembles tulips.

Director Yuyama didn't come to the island for these formations, however, but for its expansive forest. This forest was perfect to base the "Alearth Woods" in the movie on. We got an exceptionally large amount of material for the movie this day.
