To celebrate the victory of Greninja (known as Gekkouga in Japan) in the first ever “Pokémon General Election 720“, the official Pokémon Youtube channel has put together a video package of the plucky Water / Dark Type Pokémon in action performing various ninja techniques.
The video also highlights the opening theme for Pokémon the Movie XY&Z: Volcanion and the Exquisite Magearna. Entitled “XY&Z”, this song is performed by Rica Matsumoto, the Japanese voice of Satoshi / Ash Ketchum.
As a result of winning the “Pokémon General Election 720”, Greninja will be included as a bonus download for Japanese theater-goers who purchase tickets to see Pokémon the Movie XY&Z: Volcanion and the Exquisite Magearna.
Pokémon the Movie XY&Z: Volcanion and the Exquisite Magearna is directed by Kunihiko Yuyama. It is the 19th Pokémon anime theatrical film. Pokémon the Movie XY&Z: Volcanion and the Exquisite Magearna hits theaters in Japan on July 16, 2016.
