Pokémon The Movie 2020

At the end of the early screening of Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution, at Anime Expo 2019, a teaser for the next Pokémon movie was shown. Unfortunately, it’s not clear when that teaser trailer will be uploaded on YouTube. Right now, we have very little details about the movie, and all we know is that it will use 2D animation (as opposed to 3D animation used in Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution).

The movie will most definitely open on July 10th 2020 in Japan.
