There’s yet another Pokemon movie coming out in the next couple of months.
(How many movies is this? Twenty-one? Twenty-two if you count the live-action Detective Pikachu, but I digress.)
Pokemon the Movie: The Power of Us is actually the sequel to the latest I Choose You movie, and continues Ash and Pikachu’s journey in the rebooted film series. We enjoyed I Choose You for the most part (despite a few dark and sad turns) and The Power of Us seems like it’ll stay on par for the animation and, hopefully, the music and story as well. The movie originally aired in Japan at the end of this past July and reception seemed to be positive, so hopefully the dub will do just as well.
Tickets for The Power of Us are actually available for the US when it comes to select theaters for a couple of dates at the end of November and December 1. We’re contemplating seeing how close by these select theaters are to us and if we want to spring to see a Pokemon movie in the theaters again. We missed seeing I Choose You in theaters, so maybe we’ll see if we can catch — pun certainly intended — this one on the big screen.
