The first glimpse of the next Pokemon movie has been shown in a teaser trailer for Mewtwo Strikes Back EVOLUTION.

From our previous report, we know the movie will release in Japan on July 12th, and that it is being directed by Kunihiko Yuyama, Motonori Sakakibara, with the screenplay by Takeshi Shudo

It seems from the above teaser that the whole movie may be computer generated. The characters also seem to take an approach closer to the games and anime than the more realistic-looking Detective Pikachu movie coming this summer.
