The Rise of Darkrai

Dialga vs. Palkia vs. Darkrai

The Rise of Darkrai – My youngest brother was watching Cartoon Network today, and during a “Fried Dynamite” segment, he said the host announced the 10th Pokemon movie’s English title: The Rise of Darkrai (Japanese: Dialga vs. Palkia vs. Darkrai). It will be airing on Cartoon Network in March, around one month after the release of Great Encounters. Will Darkrai be available for download to our games soon?

(SPOILERS) I don’t understand how the title is relevant to the movie. Darkrai physically rises from the ground out of the shadows, but I doubt the title is referring to this. Perhaps they mean it “rising” in its “goodness?” When it first appeared in Alamos Town and attacked several Pokemon, it seemed to be evil, but years later, as the story shows, it ends up sacrificing itself for the town even though it is hated and abused by everyone. Who knows, though? (/END SPOILERS)
