Pokémon the Movie: Kyurem vs. The Sword of Justice to air on YTV December 8th at 4PM
Another year, another Pokemon movie. The Official Pokemon Facebook page have announced that Pokémon the Movie: Kyurem vs. The Sword of Justice will be airing on YTV, alongside the US Cartoon Network premiere on December 8th. The Official Pokemon website describes the film’s plot as:
Ash and Pikachu, along with their friends Iris and Cilan, are on a train headed to the next stop on their journey. From the train, Ash spots an injured Pokémon—one he’s never seen before. He’s trying to figure out how he can help when the train is attacked by the Legendary Kyurem, a Dragon-type Pokémon with immense power! Ash and the others barely manage to escape the rampaging Kyurem’s attack, and as the dust settles, they turn their attention to the injured Pokémon. Their new acquaintance turns out to be the Mythical Pokémon Keldeo, and it’s on a mission to rescue its friends—Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion, the Legendary Pokémon known as the Swords of Justice—from Kyurem’s icy clutches!
But Kyurem’s rampage isn’t over, and it’s drawing power from Reshiram and Zekrom, changing into Black Kyurem or White Kyurem to make its attacks even stronger! Why is Kyurem attacking Ash and his friends with such unrelenting fury? How will they be able to overcome this danger?
To protect its friends, to discover true power and genuine courage, and to preserve its bond with Ash and its companions, a hidden strength awakens within Keldeo…
The 15th Anniversary film opened just this past summer in Japan. Recently Pokemon films had limited theatrical releases in the United States (of which we were snubbed last time) but it appears that will end with this film. No timeslot for the film’s broadcast has been announced.
As well, Anime On TV noticed that the Pokemon TV anime is getting a weekday strip on YTV Mon-Friday at 3PM EST.
UPDATE: Corus Entertainment’s highlights for the kids networks confirm a 4PM broadcast on December 8th.
