The final trailer for Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You has been released and it has got me hyped up!
The new movie was released in Japan last year to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the Pokémon animé. This November it’s making its way to theatres in the western world for a limited time.
Pokémon The Movie: I Choose You is a loose retelling of the first series of the Pokémon anime, chronicling Ash’s adventures through the Indigo League. However, this time he’ll be taking on Pokémon from all generations rather than just the original 151. The story starts out like it did in the anime with Ash being late for his first day of Pokémon adventuring and ending up with Pikachu instead of one of the original three starters. Shortly after, the mysterious Ho-oh flies overhead and a feather drops down in front of Ash. He then vows to search far and wide until he finds the legendary bird, meeting new friends and challenges along the way.
I Choose You is already one of the highest grossing films in Japan this year and it will surely find similar success in the western markets. I for one can’t wait to see Ash set out on his journey once again!
Pokémon The Movie: I Choose You will release in English on November 7, 2017.
