Pokémon Movie Inbound

According to its Japanese movie website, another Pokémon movie is on the way. By summer of 2011 the movie should hit, which will put this at movie number 5 million.

Maybe the number is far less than 5 million, but there has been new Pokémon movies releasing every summer since 1998. That is a whole lot of movies.

Last year’s Pokémon movie took the number 2 spot at the Japanese box office, so it was obviously a no-brainer to release another. The upcoming film is said to tie into the current anime series, Pokémon: Best Wishes! Pokémon is not only a long-lasting series of games, but the anime is a beast all on its own.
