Next month Pokémon is returning to select US cinemas for two days only, with the nostalgia-laden “I Choose You!” movie. As the 20th film since Ash first met Mewtwo in 1998/99, the production studio at Toho has decided to call back to the very first season of the anime. Check out the first full theatrical trailer:
 

 
Now it’s obvious the new movie has significantly changed some parts of the plot, but it’s worth noting the movie isn’t seen as a retcon but more of a “parallel world” where events unfold differently after Ash takes Ho-Oh’s Rainbow Wing.

Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! will be heading to certain US cinemas on November 5th and 6th. You can find specifics and purchase tickets via the movie’s Fathom Events page.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
