Pokemon X and Pokemon Y's long leaked, but still mysterious Pokemon Diancie has officially been confirmed in the latest issue of CoroCoro magazine. #719, the legendary Diancie has arrived! Well, sort of. There's unfortunately no game related news regarding Diancie to announce, but we can confirm its first appearance will be in the upcoming Pokemon movie. There's no tentative Japanese release date, but the title has now been announced: Cocoon of Destruction, or Coocoon of Destruction and Diancie.
Unfortunately still no details to announce related to Volcanion and Hoopa. Nintendo has to keep a couple of Pokemon in the bag for other upcoming movies, right? Well, they better hurry up then, because it's likely they've got an iteration on Pokemon X and Y in the works for release in the next year and a half. Heck, maybe Volcanion and Hoopa show up in Cocoon of Destruction to set the stage for Pokemon Z.
The full issue of CoroCoro magazine is still being translated, so hopefully we'll be able to update this news post with additional details further on. For now, it's just great to see Nintendo confirming Pokemon X and Pokemon Y's first post-launch Pokemon is a reality. Diancie is more than just a hidden profile locked away on each game's cartridge. Diancie is here, and apparently destruction follows in its wake. Ominous.
