Pokémon Animated Teaser Trailer Launches with New Trading Card Game Expansion

The Mythical Steam Pokémon Volcanion makes a triumphant debut today, both in the new Pokémon Trading Card Game expansion, XY—Steam Siege, and in the very first look at the latest Pokémon animated film, Pokémon the Movie: Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel, which debuts later this year in some North American and European markets.

Launching today at major retailers across the country, Pokémon TCG: XY—Steam Siege features Shiny Mega Gardevoir-EX laying siege to the mighty Gear Palace, while the Mythical Steam Pokémon Volcanion must wield the dual powers of fire and water to stop it. The brand-new expansion introduces more than 110 new cards to collect and play, including Pokémon with the powerful BREAK Evolution mechanic. Xerneas BREAK and Yveltal BREAK make their debut, along with Yanmega BREAK, Talonflame BREAK, Pyroar BREAK, Clawitzer BREAK, and Hydreigon BREAK.

Volcanion also stars in Pokémon the Movie: Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel. Ash meets the Mythical Pokémon when it crashes down from the sky, creating a cloud of dust—and a mysterious force binds the two of them together! Volcanion despises humans and tries to get away, but it’s forced to drag Ash along as it continues its rescue mission.

They arrive in a city of cogs and gears, where a corrupt minister has stolen the ultimate invention: the Artificial Pokémon Magearna, created 500 years ago. He plans to use its mysterious power to take control of this mechanical kingdom! Can Ash and Volcanion work together to rescue Magearna? One of the greatest battles in Pokémon history is about to unfold!
