Cosplay Pikachu Special, Hoopa Movie Info on June 18th

Pikachu Special

A new special will air June 18th on TV Tokyo called “Pikachu the Movie 1-Hour Special.” TV Tokyo oddly lists the special as four different episodes, but they’d have to be mini-episodes to fit within an hour, so it’s unknown right now what the real details are. They might just be descriptions of what occurs in the episode or segments of the episode stated as episode titles:

  • Pikachu Becomes a Star!? Its Movie Debut!!
  • How to Pikachu the Movie! Ready! Action!!
  • The Thunderclap Hero! Super Pikachu!!
  • Pikachu’s Thrilling Failure Award

In the special, an old man picks Ash’s Pikachu to star in a movie he’s making. But when a massive outbreak of Pikachu appear and there isn’t enough crew to help film the movie, Ash rises to the occasion.

A regular new episode will air the same day titled “The Pokemon Sky Rally Challenge! Fly, Noibat!!” Ash enters a Pokemon Sky Rally with  Fletchinder, Hawlucha and Noibat, who isn’t very good at flying. Will it be able to play an active role?

New information about the Hoopa movie will also air. June 18th will be a big day for the anime!
