    And about Iris being a Zekrom.
    And Tobias being a Darkrai.
    And Lillie being a Nihilego.
    And Cilan being a member of Shadow Triad.

    Makoto's secret is she's actually a super villain bent on destroying the world because we don't like her :p

    (to be fair the only reason i'd be ok with her being a secret villain is because it's a role that would require a new character-- they'd never make an old traveling companion a villain. There are certainly other ways they could go with her character that I'd be fine with but her secretly being an antagonist is one I'd be interested in).

    That would explain why Iris can sense the feelings of Dragón-types.

    And why she's scared of Ice and (used to be) Dragon types.

    Remember when Lillie's profile was revealed and it said she was a "mysterious girl", a lot of people expected her to be the boss or at least executive member of the evil team?

    I'm thinking Makoto might not actually be evil, but probably is either the true Chosen One by Ho-oh, or warped through time/universes.

    I'd also like the chosen one narrative for Makoto because a) it'd be refreshing as hell that Ash isn't the center of everything (what, I'm supposed to believe this same kid caught the interest of Ho-Oh, has the same aura as a legendary hero, found a super-special bond with a Froakie, gets special approval from Tapu Koko, etc? all because he's energetic and likes Pokemon? please) and b) it would be an understandable reason why they used a new character for the film.

    Then this movie would piss off the fans of XY. It already pissed off some fans of OS and DP.

    It'll be revealed Makoto has a younger brother who tags along and he always calls Ash a "kid" despite being younger than him, thus pissing off fans from each series.

    INB4 it turns out Makoto's real name is Serena. That's the secret she's hiding.

    I kid, but really I don't think Amourshippers would be bothered by it. This is a brand new Ash, not the Ash of XY and XY&Z.

    Then Team Rocket will have two clones of themselves to pee off Ash even more, the whole thing will be animated in MS Paint then the film will be washed under soapy dish water to which then the alternate universe's cracks will start to show which will end up reversing time causing Pikachu to get fatter by the bucketload and the animation to go back to being hand drawn which will be outsourced to Korean animators then chucked onto TV thus neutralizing Ash's whole experience.

    And he gets beaten by a Mega Charizard.

    Then suddenly the writers do a David Fincher and Ash magically starts to grow unbelievably old and by the time he gets to the final gym he's about 93. Then he loses and sends his soul over to Makoto who becomes the mascot of the anime forever and ever until the end of time and until i'm out of luck, money and time to write all of this

    And then it turns out it was all a dream by Meowth... to which Jessie reminds him that they are preparing to attack to Viridian Pokémon Center by dusk.

    Bringing the film back on topic, our good ol chums at Serebii have confirmed the film will be making it's fantastical world premiere at the 2017 Japan Expo in Paris (obviously the big inspiration for Kalos). The film's director (obviously Kunihiko Yuyama) and the voice we all know and love as Ash (Rica Matsumoto) will be attending. It all premieres on July 6th.

    There would be a worldwide theatrical release (instead of a one-off event for French otakus) if they didn't insist on messing up this opportunity.

    Just out of curiosity. Was there any Pokemon movie released concurrently worldwide on the same date?

    Because even the Pokemon Anime TV series tried to diminish the broadcast gap between Japan and US/UK. I wonder are they trying that for the movie as well. Well it is actually more easier for movie airing worldwide concurrently than TV series, so it is not surprising.
