Coming in July, 2010 to Japanese movie theaters is the newest Pokemon movie. Ruler of Illusions: Zoroark movie will be the newest in a long series of Pokemon movies.
This movie has so far 5 new Pokemon characters that have been announced. Zorua, Zoroark, Tsutaaja, Pokabu, and Mijumaru. These new 5th generation Pokemon are sure to make a big splash in the movie theaters. The main characters are not children like they have been in the past.
Zoroark and Zorua are two of the new main characters. As most of you know, their names were released about a month ago and they are already selling merchandise with these two characters. In addition to these characters, last week 3 new character names were released.
Tsujaaja is a grass snake Pokemon. Its name comes from 2 different Japanese words. “tsuta” meaning “ivy” and “ja” meaning “snake” in one Japanese dialect.
Mijumaru is a cute sea otter type Pokemon. Its name comes from the Japanese word “mijuku” meaning “immature” and “maru” meaning “round or ball”.
Pokablu is a fire pig type Pokemon. It also has a two part Japanese name. There is two different theories as to how its name evolved. One is from “pokapoka” which in its shortened form “poka” means “warm” and “bu” which is the sound that a big makes when it grunts. The other theory is “po” which is a shortened form of “pork” and “bu” which is the sound that a big makes when it grunts.
The addition of new characters is making this movie the most anticipated in years. Its a must see for every Pokemon fan. Im sure there will be some rare Japanese Pokemon items coming out for the movie. Stay tuned for more news as it updates.
