    Default Jul 15: Movie 20 - Pocket Monsters the Movie: I Choose You! (Apr 15: New summary)

    http://www.pokemon-movie.jp/



    To all Pokémon fans:
    This is the story of the duo's "meeting" and "promise".
    This is the creation of the 20th anniversary movie!

    Pocket Monsters, or "Pokémon" for short:
    Mysterious lifeforms that hide many secrets.

    There are still many things we don't know about their ecology.

    Even today,
    Pokémon Trainers continue their adventures
    with the aim of encountering Pokémon never before seen...

    Satoshi, a boy living in Masara Town, greeted the morning of his 10th birthday, the day he could become qualified to become a Pokémon Trainer. Satoshi's heart was filled with a desire for Pokémon he has never seen before and a world he has never seen before, but while he was meant to be given a Pokémon that would become his partner at the Okido Laboratories, he ended up severely oversleeping, and all that was left for him was a single Pikachu, a Pokémon that did not get attached to humans.
    "Do you hate me? I like you!" Even though the two were at odds with one another, their friendship deepened little by little, and as they looked up at the legendary Pokémon Houou that flew through the sky on the day they set off, Satoshi and Pikachu swore an oath as they held one of its Rainbow Feathers:
    "Let's go meet it together one day!"

    And thus, Pikachu and Satoshi, who set off on his journey to become the world's greatest Pokémon Master, end up meeting the Trainers Makoto and Soji on their way before getting told a legend concerning Houou.
    "Those who, guided by the Rainbow Feather, meet with Houou, shall become the Heroes of the Rainbow."
    Satoshi and the others end up getting guided by Marshadow, a mysterious Pokémon that had been lurking in Satoshi's shadow without anyone realizing, and make their way to Mount Tensei, where Houou lives, but a strong opponent appears before them. Will the duo manage to reach Houou?! In order for them to fulfill the promise they swore on the day the departed, the two of them now begin an adventure that will last until they become "true partners"!

    So it's not a Ho-Oh movie..

    STILL, HYPE. This is going to be a fun ride, seeing all best classic scenes in the glorious animation.

    Inb4 it only focuses on OS and completely ignores AG, DP and BW. It's gonna happen and you know it.

    I wonder if this will be a retelling of Ash's journey condensed into an hour and a half, but I'd be fine with that considering it's Pokemon's twentieth anniversary. I still find it a bit strange they're not going to release a (quite honestly bad compared to other movies) movie about a Legendary in Alola because that's what they always do.

    I guess July can't come soon enough for me. I'll watch it.

    A retelling? Interesting. Hope its not a complete rehash of the first few episodes.

    Ho-oh could still appear. It made an appearance in the first episode.

    Heh I find it hilarious that I just posted something about wanting something different with past companions and Pokemon making appearances in the other thread that got deleted several minutes ago and then we get this lol

    Yeah obviously, but that will be the EP01 scene reanimated. My first impression was that it was fully centered on Ho-Oh but I suppose it is 'still' too early for that.

    I'm getting serious Dragonball Path to Power vibes from this.

    And much like how Path to Power only used two of the first three arcs of Dragonball and omitted some characters, I can see this film keeping it condensed to the OS series only.

    Noe necessarily a bad thing though. Maybe Johto will get the breakthrough the fanbase wanted it to have and use the GS Ball plot device in theatrical form?

    Well...this is...unexpected. Not sure how I feel about this versus a traditional movie with a completely original story taking place in the current region.

    Join Ash and Pikachu as they travel to the Tenno Region, a region known for its advanced space program. Along their way towards the Tenno League and becoming a Pokémon Master they'll encounter new Pokémon, new enemies, such as the evil Team Planetary, and, of course, a certain trio of Team Rocket members, along with friends new and old.
    Check it out!

    Hopefully this won't be an OS only thing. I'd like to see events from AG-XY as well, and hopefully another Dawn and Serena appearance. :3

    Honestly this is a brilliant idea. I really hope this retelling isn't just one film. I want to see a trilogy

    Not sure how I feel about this.

    It seems like something that should've been its own thing rather than a movie that will air next July. Like a very cool special on TV Tokyo or something, considering that's how the series began (on TV) not as a movie in a theater. This feels like a waste of a movie, but I guess I'll wait until we get a trailer for it, a decent trailer, I otherwise am just not invested in a retelling of the first few episodes or whatever it actually will be.

    I guess that means Marshadow/Necrozma next year (2018)....maybe 8th generation (2019).

    Poor Sun and Moon, though, they're going to have to do something heavy within the anime, if the games/anime are going to be ignored for a year (movie wise).

    Though I do have to say, maybe this is what the movies should've been to begin with related yet unrelated to the anime. Telling their OWN true story without needing to advertise the games.

    Is this really necessary?

    Like, we know how Ash's journey began. We have seen Red start a similar journey from the beginning twice. There is nothing new here. Alola offers many legendaries and UBs to tell a fresh story with. But it's nostalgic pandering so I'm probably alone here...

    Is this implying the movie won't be a retelling but a different continuity altogether?

    Yeah, that's definitely going to be the theater distro.

    That would make sense....but then doesn't make sense, unless they magically gave Ash a Z-ring, otherwise there'd be no reason to show Ash's hat Pikachu in consideration to its Z-move.

    It only makes sense because of Pikachu with OS hat but still it not being complimented with its Z-move as I've said would not make sense.

    Given that the 1st generation is constantly favored over other generations in terms of games, not that difficult to imagine something similar to the anime in terms of movie and 20th anniversary wise.

    I literally have no idea what this means for the movie, but these seven lines of text sound pretty bad*ss. Friends you've yet to see... are we still dealing with Ash, or...?

    I hope this isn't just another big round of generation 1 fanservicing. I love the Gen 7 anime so and wished we got an actual movie set in that time

    That turned around 180 really fast.

    I'm guessing this is now about movie-exclusives characters like that one "movie" with Raikou in it. I actually much prefer this than the traditional movies.
