The annual tradition of each December showcasing the next Pokémon movie keeps moving full steam ahead with this year’s announcement of “Pokémon: I Choose You”. As always, this movie will launch in Japan first on July 15th, 2017 with the release date for other regions to be announced. The official trailer has also been released, which you can see after the jump.
Most hardcore Pokémon will recognize the title of the movie as it is also the name of the very first episode in the Pokémon series. In the video below, you’ll notice Pallet Town and Ash is back in his original outfit from the first season. What this means for the Pokémon movie franchise is yet to be seen.
They also released a movie poster showing off Ho-oh while Ash and Pikachu sit and watch it fly by.
