In 2017, The Pokémon Company released their 20th Pokémonmovie, and to mark the occasion they decided to give fans a blast from the past. Rather than setting the film in Alola and continuing the Sun and Moon plot, they essentially rebooted the movie universe with Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!, a re-telling of the Kanto League story from the anime. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, it’s now easier than ever, as it just launched on Netflix!
Netflix has added another Pokemon movie for fans to watch. Now that January 2019 has begun, people can begin streaming Pokemon the Movie: I Choose You!. Subscribers have the option of streaming it or downloading it to watch offline. However, the only voice acting options are English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish.
Pokemon the Movie: I Choose You! is a reboot and callback to the original adventures. It looks at 10-year-old Ash Ketchum as he just begins his journey. We get to see him meet Pikachu for the first time and acquire him as his starter from Professor Oak. We also get to see Ash encounter other Pokemon like Caterpie, Spearow, and Ho-Oh.
Here is the Pokemon the Movie: I Choose You! theatrical trailer.
