Tvblog, an Italian online TV magazine, announced that in concurrence with the release of Pokémon X and Y, the Italian channel K2 will broadcast the sixteenth Pokémon movie. The date has still not been revealed, as well as the translated title. There is also a reference to a "Preview of the new anime based on Pokémon X and Y Video Games", but it is not known whether it refers to a broadcast of the first two episodes before the ending of the current series (as they already did with Pokémon: Black & White) or just a teaser of the series itself.
No information on the English release of this movie has been revealed yet, even though K2 has already broadcast several episodes before their U.S. debut. September 5 will also begin the last part of the sixteenth season, that will be localized as "Pokémon Nero e Bianco: Avventure a Unima e oltre" with the airing of Addio, Unima! Si salpa per nuove avventure!. Moreover, the broadcast of movies 11 to 15 have been scheduled for the upcoming weekends.
