The Japanese TV show Oha Suta has revealed a new trailer of the 13th Pokémon movie, Ruler of Illusions: Zoroark. The trailer shows many new scenes, including the new movie characters.

The movie's new poster

The trailer shows the extent of Zoroark's powers, showing it take the form of the Entei, Raikou and Suicune, as well as the mysterious "evil Satoshi" that appeared in an earlier trailer. The movie trailer also shows Zoroark's pre-evolved form, Zorua, which appears to be tied closely to whatever scheme Zoroark has planned in the movie.

It is likely the trailer will be added to the Pokémon movie Web site this weekend and will be shown after an episode of the Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl and Pokémon Sunday.

It should be noted that, like with previous trailers, not all scenes will make it into the final version.

Update: The official movie website has updated with new images and information about the 13th Pokémon movie. The site now includes plot and character details, a trailer, the movie's new poster and more.

The movie takes place in a city called Crown City. Satoshi and his friends visit the city to watch the Pokémon Boccer World Cup. There they meet a Pokémon named "Zorua" and decide to help it search for its companion. But the Ruler of Illusions "Zoroark" appears and destroys the city. Celebi time travels from twenty years in the future to intervene in or prevent this catastrophe.

Other guest characters include Kodai, who owns a corporation known as Kodai Network, Rioko, Kodai's secretary, and Kuruto, a newspaper reporter trying to uncover Kodai's secret.

The new movie trailer that aired on Oha Suta this week is now available online via the site.

Ruler of Illusions: Zoroark will premiere on July 10 in Japan. The movie will feature Celebi, the legendary dogs, and the Generation V Pokémon Zorua and Zoroark, as well as many other characters, and will be set in Crown City.
