Posted by Falco's AvatarFalco on March 3, 2011 at 1:58 AM

A new Japanese trailer is out for the new pair of films as part of the 'Best Wishes' series: 'Victini & The Black Hero: Zekrom' and 'Victini & The White Hero: Reshiram'. These two movies are going to be released in Japan this July, and will allow you to download a special Victini.

In addition to the new trailer, more information regarding the plots of the two movies has been revealed. The main antagonist, Dread Grangil, has black and white hair, and wears different costumes in the two movies because in 'Zekrom' he travels in the wilderness, whereas in 'Reshiram' he travels in a tundra.

Aside from Zekrom and Reshiram being exclusive to their respective movies, it has been revealed that Gothitelle will be Dread's partner in 'Zekrom', whereas Reuniclus will be Dread's partner in 'Reshiram'. The last exclusive change announced is the presence of a different child in each movie; a girl named Sayd in 'Zekrom', and a boy named Ohdo in 'Reshiram', both of who are predicted to be linked to the main legendary Pokémon in some way.

The translation of the information posted on the Pokémon movie website has been posted below from PokéBeach:

Originally posted by PokéBeachAsh, Pikachu, Iris, and Cilan, who are traveling through the Unova region, arrive at Aind Oak, a town with a sprawling castle at its center called the "Earth's Sword." This town once flourished as the "Kingdom of the People of the Earth," but has now fallen into decline. Ash and friends participate in a battle in celebration of Aind Oak's harvest festival. There, they meet and befriend Victini, a mythical Pokemon who can gift a mysterious power to humans and Pokemon. Dread Grangil, a descendant of the People of the Earth who wishes to restore the kingdom, schemes to use Victini's power to move the "Earth’s Sword," but as a result, Aind Oak will be engulfed in horrific disasters. If he accomplishes his goal, will Ash and his friends be able to save the town from crisis? And what of Victini's fate? Add to this the mystery of Zekrom and Reshiram, and you'll be awed by the greatest adventure in the history of Pokemon!
