New Pokémon Movie Unveils Poster & Trailer!

The newest Pokémon movie, tentatively titled Pokémon the Movie 2018, has revealed its first poster and trailer!

The previous installment, Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!, retold the first adventures of Ash and Pikachu. It concluded with them setting out for their next adventure with new friends, one of whom we can get a glimpse of on the poster as well as in the trailer.

The new movie is co-produced by OLM (previous Pokémon movies, Inazuma Eleven ) and Wit Studio ( Attack on Titan, The Ancient Magus’ Bride ) and distributed by Toho. Yajima Tetsuo, the assistant director of the previous movie is taking the chair from Yuyama Kunihiko, who directed most of the Pokémon series up until the last movie. Yuyama will act as animation supervisor, and Kaneko Shizue is designing the characters. Matsumoto Rica and Otani Ikue are reprising their roles as Ash and Pikachu.

Pokémon the Movie 2018 is set to release on Jul. 13.
