An exclusive screening of Pokémon the Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution was recently held at the Anime Expo 2019. Joining the event for their first overseas convention appearances were directors Kunihiko Yuyama and Motonori Sakakibara. Additionally, voice actress/singer Rica Matsumoto (Ash) participated in the event.
After the screening, the first teaser for next year’s animated Pokémon movie was shown. Footage showcased Pikachu descending from a vine in a forest. The brief teaser also revealed that the movie is being produced in the traditional Pokémon anime style and not CGI this time around. Contrary to what some initially thought, the movie is not called Pokémon With You; its title hasn’t officially been announced yet.
