Manga UK is to release Pokémon Movie Collection 10-13: Diamond & Pearl on DVD on 21 May. The four-disc, English audio-only set features four films – The Rise of Darkrai, Giratina and the Sky Warrior, Arceus and the Jewel of Life and Zoroark – Master of Illusions – and is the first in a series of Pokémon collections due for release, says the distributor.
Debuting in Japan in 2007, The Rise of Darkrai sees Ash, Dawn and Brock racing to save idyllic Alamos Town from the space and time warping powers of Legendary Pokémon Dialga and Palkia. The only hope comes in the shape of Darkrai, a shadowy Pokémon shunned by the townsfolk.
In 2008’s Giratina and the Sky Warrior, a scientist attempts to harness the power of Legendary Pokémon Giratina and take over the Reverse World. Meanwhile, Ash and friends help out a cute, telepathic Pokémon named Shaymin that’s trying to make its way to the Gracidea Flower garden for a special ritual.
Arceus and the Jewel of Life (2009) opens with Ash, Dawn and Brock arriving in Michina Town, which is on the verge of being annihilated by creator of the world Arceus, who’s angry at humanity for the theft of the Jewel of Life. Ash and the gang are sent back in time to set things right …and save the world!
Released in 2010, Zoroark – Master of Illusions sees Ash in Crown City to watch the Pokémon Baccer World Cup. However, greedy businessman Grings Kodai is also in town to capture the Mythical Pokémon Celebi – and he’s using shape-shifting Pokémon Zoroark to help achieve his nefarious ends.
