The Mythical Pokémon Volcanion allies with the Pokémon trainer Ash Ketchum and his friends, Pikachu, Serena, Clemont, and Bonnie to recover Magearna's Soul-Heart.

It was released in Japan on July 16, 2016.

Plot

Mega Evolution Councillor Alva and Prince Raleigh of the Azoth Kingdom order the artificial Pokémon Magearna to be brought to the Kingdom after it is found in the Nebel Plateau, a place populated by Pokémon who have been abused by humans. The Mythical Pokémon Volcanion tries recovering Magearna, but has a band attached to his leg and is sent falling to a forest where Ash Ketchum and his friends, Pikachu, Serena, Clemont, and Bonnie are camping. Volcanion lands in Ash and friends' vicinity, and when they recover, Ash finds a second band attached to himself. Clemont discovers the bands emit an electromagnetic force that binds Ash to Volcanion like a chain. Volcanion runs off, dragging Ash along with him.

Ash and Volcanion recover Magearna from the Azoth Kingdom. They rendezvous with Serena, Clemont, and Bonnie, who are fascinated by Magearna, but are unable to remove the chain binding Ash and Volcanion. Reluctantly, Volcanion allows the group to accompany him and Magearna to their home, Nebel Plateau. On the way, they are attacked by Team Rocket, who has been hired by Alva to recover Magearna, but the group is able to drive them off with help from Raleigh's sister, Princess Kimia. During their stay at Nebel Plateau, Clemont and Kimia have the resident Pokémon break the electromagnetic bands. Finally free, Volcanion orders the humans to leave, but they refuse.

The next day, Alva and his henchman and henchwoman, Levi and Cherie attack and recapture Magearna. He removes Magearna's "Soul-Heart", which he plans to use to activate a mechanism in the Azoth Castle that turns it into a flying fortress. Raleigh tries to stop him but is knocked unconscious. As the castle takes to the skies, Ash and Pikachu storm the fortress with Volcanion, Kimia, and Greninja, but are trapped by Alva, who attempts to break Magearna's spirit by firing at Nebel Plateau. However, the resident Pokémon repel the attack with help from Squishy the Zygarde Core, and Ash destroys Alva's cane giving him control over the Pokémon, causing them to become normal again, and Alakazam uses psychic powers to levitate itself and the other Pokémon and Levi and Cherie from the fortress. Volcanion frees himself, Ash, Kimia, and their Pokémon. Alva sets the fortress on a collision course with the plateau and tries to escape with a jetpack, but Greninja disables it, causing him to fall. Ash returns the Soul-Heart to Magearna, but her spirit is gone. To prevent the fortress from crashing into the plateau, Volcanion uses his power to destroy the fortress with himself at the center of the blast. Volcanion is assumed to be killed in the blast, bringing grief to the humans and Pokémon, but later, at Nebel Plateau, Magearna regains her spirit when Volcanion appears, having survived, but he appears unconscious, but Magearna regains Volcanion's consciousness, as her flowers earlier made him sneeze. When he regains consciousness, Volcanion tells Magearna not to put pollen to his nostrils, then gives Pikachu and the other Pokémon the distinction of being honorary members of Nebel Plateau. Team Rocket, watching from nearby, express satisfaction at how things turned out.

In the credits, the Nebel Plateau Pokémon gather the wreckage of the fortress and bury it in a huge hole. Ash and his friends return to the Azoth Kingdom with Kimia and Raleigh, where Bonnie proposes to Kimia's personal assistant Flamel, on Clemont's behalf, then he pulls her back with his Aipom arm. Later, Kimia and her shiny Gardevoir discover Alva tangled in the wreckage of his jetpack in a tree. Gardevoir Levitates him onto Kimia's aircraft, where he gets the magnetic bands stuck on him. Keeping him from fleeing, even though he attempts to. Levi and Cherie are also imprisoned. Taking Ash's advice, Raleigh goes out on a Pokémon journey, of his own with his Slurpuff in order to see the world and learn more than just past history. Kimia watches him leave from what remains of the castle. Magearna continues to live in peace at Nebel Plateau with the other Pokémon, while Volcanion watches over them from his cave.
