Re: Possible 14th movie title revealed: Possible title revealed, no other details

Victini getting the first movie is not surprising. Wonder who can the next movie can be based on?
 
Re: Possible 14th movie title revealed: Possible title revealed, no other details

Hmmm, The Dark Hero may be Zekrom, if the filmmakers are planning on using Reshiram for another future film. And the fact that it appeared in the teaser along with Reshiram and Victini helps this theory too.

Hmm... Dark hero... Black is dark(color), and a hero in the games... so Black = Dark Hero? :O
 
Re: Possible 14th movie title revealed: Possible title revealed, no other details

Black isn't the guy's game name.

"Dark" doesn't have to mean bad or evil. Keldeo, like the other Muskadeers, hates humans for what they have done to Pokémon - So despite being the heroes of Pokémon, Keldeo has Darkness in its heart. This could create some conflict in the movie, as Keldeo has to realise that there are humans who want the best for Pokémon (Ash, Iris and Dent). The inner conflict that would create will show a deeper side to Keldeo, making it similar to an Anti-Hero; hence, Dark Hero.

If the writers want, they could make Keldeo a very interesting character.
I wouldn't say its darkness in its heart, so much as being viewed as 'evil' by humans who don't understand why they are being attacked.

Of course, the Muskedeer seem to have an indiscriminate hatred toward humans, whether they deserve it or not, so that lack of understanding could be a darkness in its heart.

Basically, they are 'antagonistic' in the same way N is.
That seems like a pretty big stretch, though.

I never said it had to be bad or evil - my guess of "Zekrom" is equally benign.
So basically, your argument is that because Zekrom is acually dark coloured and represents Black Yin?

I don't see how that's more of a stretch than Keldeo, who could actually be seen as an anti-hero.
 
I have my reservations with Keldeo being the dark hero. Not only because of his appearance, but it was never explicitly said that Keldeo hates humans, rather he was saved by the Musketeer based trio of Legendaries who fought humans in order to protect Pokemon.

However, I also think that Keldeo will play a BIG role in the movie, just because Victini is already revealed.

What if the full title is actually:

Keldeo, Victini and the Dark Hero Zekrom

???
 
It looks like "Dark" as it's written in kanji (黒) is "Dark" in the context of "black" rather than "evil". I'm no expert at the language, though.

My bet's on it being an alternate forme. Shaymin looks like no Sky Warrior until you see its Sky forme.

I completely forgot about Lugia and Ho-Oh's roles in the Zoroark movie...Oh wait.

I doubt we'll see an alternate forme until 2012, which is when the next main series game will be out. Besides, Meloetta, who will likely be in 2012's movie, already has two formes.

Hmm... Maybe Genosect will be in the movie... However, since Plasma is doing the same crazy thing the Rockets did... What if Giovanni was the dark hero?

Pretty much.

I don't see how that's more of a stretch than Keldeo, who could actually be seen as an anti-hero.

Because movie titles don't usually reveal thematic categories that are seen in analysis like "dark hero". Basically, I'm saying you're overanalyzing it.
 
And lets be frank, Keldeo doesn't seem like the Anti-hero type of Pokemon. Its even debatable if it even hates humans, as nothing specifically says it does like the other Musketeers.

That wouldn't explain why they'd be keeping Zekrom a secret in the title. They could've easily put it in the title by now. There's a mystery over who the dark hero is. They wouldn't add another event Pokemon at the beginning of the title and then reveal the mysterious dark hero to be a Pokemon people've known about since May.

Then they'd have to do something about any blank that's before Genosect. In Gen III and Gen IV they've never revealed event Pokemon out of order. Sure, two times don't make a pattern, but what reason is there for them to change things?
 
I am putting my money on Zekrom. He was in the preview, is dark-looking. Also Reshiram could have a major role, too, but not be in the name (like suicune in the Celebi movie, Celebi in the 13th movie, etc.)It does make sense that the Deep Black species would be the star. Besides, he is a lot like Darkrai, who kinda could be called a dark hero. Makes sense to me. Or the dark hero could be a person, who is trying to tap into victini's infinite energy, or something with the Energy dragon guys, for a good reaon in his/her mind. Who knows?

Pretty much.

Considering that they've clearly gone back to past themes in the games (with all the expies, plus giving Pokemon 'clothes' again), I don't really see how this title is any harder to read then, let's say Emperor of the Crystal Tower: Entei or even Giratina and the Sky Bouquet: Shaymin.

Note that neither one of these titles really would have given a hint to the Pokemon they were hiding. According to the article, Sky is written in kanji to mean "icy sky". No one knew Shaymin was getting another form. No one knows why that particular Entei was the emperor of the crystal tower, or what that crystal tower eve was. But you know what happened? The movie revealed why it was called that, just as the movie would reveal why Keldeo is the "dark hero".

Besides, he is a lot like Darkrai, who kinda could be called a dark hero.

And what exactly do they have in common other than being 'dark'? Hypno, or really, any misunderstood ghost type have more in common with it. By your logic, the dark hero could be any of the many new dark types, and some of them do fit the warrior archetype.

Not just the type, the color, the shadowy powers, etc. Besides, we will find out soon enough i am sure.

'Dark' was in quotations, hence encompassing those novel connections you made. Zekrom isn't even dark type. And what shadowy powers? Zekrom's powers are lightning-based. they've never actually shown any light or dark powers between it and Reshiram.

Like I said, by that logic, any of the Gen V dark types (and really, all those that have ever existed) and a lot of ghost types fit into 'dark hero'
