Dub of 'Black Hero,' 'White Hero' to be released this December
The latest two movies in the Pokémon anime series have had their English titles and release dates revealed on Pokémon.com.
「ビクティニと黒き英雄ゼクロム」 Victini and the Black Hero: Zekrom and ビクティニと白き英雄レシラム Victini and the White Hero: Reshiram will come out in the US in December with the titles Pokémon The Movie: White—Victini and Zekrom and Pokémon The Movie: Black—Victini and Reshiram, respectively.
The two movies form the collective pair 劇場版 ポケットモンスターベストウイッシュ The First Movie Theatrical Version - Pocket Monsters Best Wishes!: The First Movie, which has not yet been given an English title.
Each movie has Ash, and his friends, Cilan and Iris arriving in Eindoak Town to compete in a battle competition. There, they meet the mythical Pokémon Victini and Damon, a man who aims to use Victini for his own gains.
Like in the video games, the plots in the paired movies vary slightly. For those who don't mind spoilers, Bulbapedia has a list of differences between versions.
While no exact release date has been confirmed yet, Cinedigm Digital Cinema will show these movies in theaters for a limited one-weekend special event on Dec. 3 and Dec. 4, 2011.
The Victini films' Japanese theatrical release was on July 16, 2011.
