The Pokemon Company and TV Tokyo, which airs the Pokemon anime, have announced that Pikachi will be getting his very own hour-long special called the Pocket Monster XY Pikachu the Movie 1 Jikan Special.


The new Pokemon TV special will be divided into five acts, which will feature a huge outbreak of Pikachus. I guess Team Rocket will be very happy with this news! The acts are “How to Pikachu the Movie! Yo-i! Action!!”, “Jinrai no Hero! Super Pikachu!!”,”Pikachu no Doki Doki NG Taishou”,”Chousen Pokémon Sky Relay! Tobe Noibat!!”, and the Pikachu outbreak where “Super Pikachu” will have to save Pickachu land from the “evil” Black Pikachu Corps.

Atsuhiro Tomioka, who writes the scripts for the Pokemon XY anime will once again be in-charge of the series composition while Kunihiko Yuyama (Pokemon movies) will act as the chief director of the special, with Tetsuo Yajima (Hunter X Hunter episode director) as the director.


The TV special will air in Japan this Thursday, 18 June 2015, at 7:00 pm via TV Tokyo
