Pokémon The Movie: White – Victini and Zekrom and Pokémon The Movie: Black – Victini and Reshiram not coming to theatres in Canada

Joining the Yu-Gi-Oh! gang, Ash and Pikachu’s latest theatrical adventure unfortunately won’t be taking flight in Canada, despite the recently announced 2-day nationwide US event in December. I have confirmed with a Cinedigm representative that the showcases are indeed US-only for a variety or reasons. Pokemon fans are just going to have to bask in the Black & White YTV broadcast, and watch the latest film release on DVD.

Because I enjoy rubbing salt in wounds, here’s a plot synopsis and trailer of the White film:

During their travels through the Unova region, Ash and his friends Iris and Cilan arrive in Eindoak Town, built around a castle called the Sword of the Vale. The three Trainers have come to compete in the town’s annual battle competition, and Ash manages to win with some unexpected help from the Mythical Pokémon Victini! It turns out Victini has a special bond with this place…

Long ago, the castle watched over the Kingdom of the Vale, and the partnership between Victini and the king protected its people who lived there. But that kingdom has since vanished into memory, leaving behind powerful relics and ancient Pokémon. Damon, a descendant of the People of the Vale, is trying to restore the lost kingdom with the help of his Reuniclus. His quest has taken him to the far reaches of the barren desert, and he has convinced the Legendary Pokémon Reshiram to join him in the search for truth!

Damon plans to trap Victini and harness its power, and as that plan gets under way, the entire town of Eindoak faces disaster! Can Ash awaken the Legendary Pokémon Zekrom to help him stop Damon and save Victini? The greatest adventure in Pokémon history approaches!

    I think it’s possible for the movies to air on YTV since the last 2 latest movies premiered on YTV around the same time it premiered on CN, and it appears Pokemon is doing really well on YTV, so airing the movies should be a ratings-grabber.
