Pokemon movie release


So VIZ Media announced the new Pokemon movie is out on DVD today. Never been a fan of Ash and the gang although I do find Pikachu very cute and own a giant version of the yellow furball. It’s a denizen of my room along with a stuffed version of Kon from “Bleach.”

But I digress.

“Pokmon: The Rise of Darkrai” will hit store shelves today. Price is $19.98.

The Pokmon television series airs seven days a week on Cartoon Network and episodes can be viewed online on Toonami JetstreamT.

Here’s a synopsis of the movie from the VIZ release: “While touring Alamos Town – home of the Space-Time Tower – with the beautiful Alice, Ash and his friends discover that the town’s special garden has been decimated. Baron Alberto, a dashing but arrogant fellow, immediately blames the destruction on Darkrai.

As if it just overheard the accusation, Darkrai appears and confronts our heroes! Who is Darkrai? Is it a friend… or an enemy in disguise? And as a battle between Legendary Pokmon Dialga and Palkia rages directly above Alamos Town, and threatens to tear a hole in the space-time continuum, will Ash and his friends survive this showdown and learn Darkrai’s true nature?”
