The teaser trailer for the 2018 Pokémon movie has been released


A new trailer has been released to tease the 2018 Pokémon animated movie.

The new movie is the 21st Pokémon movie to be released and is set to continue on from the I Choose You saga of films that started with Pokémon’s 2017 movie Pokémon I Choose You! But not much else is currently known about the movie at this time.

It’s currently labeled as Pokémon the Movie 2018, but that’s expected to change in the future.

The teaser pans across a crisp blue sea where fans see main character Ash in the new animation style. The movie is being collaborated on by OLM, who handle the animation for the series usually, and WIT Studio, who have worked on the Attack on Titan series.

Avid Pokémon fans will also notice a small tune familiar to the series, Lugia’s theme, which seems to hint at the next movie focusing on the Johto region.

The movie is set to be released in Japan on July 13, 2018.
