Manga UK have recently announced the release of the Pokémon series’ three films from it’s ‘Diamond & Pearl’ era in a multi-disc special DVD collection.
The four film collection will be released on DVD on May 21 and is the first in a series of Pokémon movie collections set for release. It will contain the films ‘The Rise of Darkrai’, ‘Giratina and the Sky Warrior’, ‘Arceus and the Jewel of Life’, and ‘Zoroark – Master of Illusions’, and like all previous Pokémon releases will include English dub audio only.
Below are the synopsises and trailers for each film in the collection:
The Rise of Darkrai
An idyllic town is thrown into chaos when two powerful Pokémon, Dialga and Palkia, cross paths and battle, distorting the dimensions of time and space. The only hope comes from Darkrai, a shadowy Pokémon shunned by the townsfolk.
Giratina and the Sky Warrior
When a new Pokémon emerges able to create parallel dimensions, it’s up to Ash Ketchum and his friends to stop a mysterious stranger from using its powers for evil!
Arceus and the Jewel of Life
Arceus, creator of the world, comes to pass judgement on humanity for the theft of the Jewel of Life, but Ash Ketchum and his friends are sent back in time to discover and possible reverse the events that led to Arceus’ vendetta.
Zoroark – Master of Illusions
A greedy, manipulative media mogul seeks to capture Celebi for nefarious purposes, using the shape-shifting Pokémon, Zoroark, to hunt it down.
Unfortunately right now there are no plans for a Blu-Ray release of this collection, but it is still worth picking up as it contains some of the best films of the series. ‘Pokémon Movie Collection: Diamond & Pearl’ is available for pre-order right now!
