Pokemon the Movie 20: I Choose You! Returns to Roots, First Trailer

The Pokemon Company and Nintendo are readying a new Pokemon movie that returns to the very beginning of the entire series, in celebration of the series’ 20th anniversary.

Dubbed appropriately Pokémon the Movie 20: I Choose You!, the new movie sees the beginning of Ash Ketchum’s journey through the Kanto region.

Poised as a retelling of the entire series, the movie is focused on the beginnings of the anime series, where Ash and Pikachu first struggle to become partners.

Here’s a look at the movie’s Japanese poster:

Pokémon the Movie 20: I Choose You! will kick off in Japan on July 15th. A western release isn’t confirmed yet – but we’re sure to hear something before this summer.
