Pokémon I Choose You is the title for the newest Pokémon movie. It’s the 20th movie in the franchise and coincidentally celebrates the 20th anniversary of the anime series. An image that was leaked earlier today shows Ash Ketchum in Pallet Town with Pikachu looking up at the sky where the legendary Pokémon, Ho-Oh, soars up ahead. It seems to be a throwback to the first episode of the anime.
The trailer for the film had a world premiere during Oha Suta, a Japanese variety show. The trailer shows off various landscapes of Ash’s hometown as well as him putting on his infamous hat with the ol’ green gloves. We don’t know if the movie will be an extended look at Ash’s first few days as a Pokemon trainer or if Ash visits Pallet Town as he is now.
The movie is set to release on July 15th, 2017 in Japan. You can check out the 30 second trailer for the movie right here. Happy 20th anniversary to the Pokemon series! I’m sure this movie will make some old school fans very happy.
