Pokémon is about to have a busy fall season. Alongside the upcoming games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, The Pokémon Company plans to further capitalize on their beloved franchise with Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! The twentieth Pokémon film is set to be a retelling of trainer Ash Ketchum's journey from its very beginning in Pallet Town, where he met his Pikachu.
After spotting the legendary Ho-Oh, the duo vows to see it again. Ash is later joined by two new sidekicks, Sorrel and Verity, and goes on a variety of adventures shown in greater detail in this trailer. Notably, Pokémon from different generations appear, including Generation VII, which is fitting since this is the first film in the Sun and Moon line, but it will still no doubt be weird to see all these changes to the original and beloved narrative.
What do you think about this trailer? It certainly seems to tug at the nostalgic heartstrings, but will it hold up on its own? We will soon find out when it releases in select theaters on November 5th and 6th. Definitely research which locations this picture is showing in if you want to catch it during this two-day event!
