Greninja Video Celebrates “Pokémon General Election 720” Victory

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.
