The Pokémon Company released a new teaser trailer for the upcoming Pokémon movie. The film now has an official title – Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us.
Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us will have a limited theatrical release through Fathom Events on November 24, 26, and 28, as well as December 1.
General Public Tickets go on sale on September 27th.
Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us tells the story of Ash and Pikachu as they journey to a small seaside town filled with a diverse set of characters, including a young athlete, a compulsive liar, a shy researcher, a bitter old woman, and a little girl with a big secret.
Every year, the townspeople gather to celebrate the Legendary Pokémon Lugia, who brings the wind that saved the town from destruction many years ago. The festival is a time for celebration, with a Pokémon Catching Race and a ceremonial flame burning brightly to summon Lugia. But when a series of incidents threatens not just the festival, but all the people and Pokémon who call the town home, it’s going to take more than just Ash and Pikachu to save the day. Will these people be able to put aside their differences and work together to rescue their town? Or will it all end in destruction?
The animation looks slick and the visual aesthetic of Ash, while a departure to the usual style, is far better than Pokémon Sun and Moon the series.
Here’s a sneak peek at Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us.
