Surprising many, the new Pokemon movie that is releasing in 2017 is not based upon the recent season of Sun & Moon but rather, the very first region Ash started his adventure; Kanto. He will be experiencing a retelling of his very first adventure and as someone who grew up with Pokemon all these years…..this is amazing to see.
The original series with the high production values, writing and quality that XYZ and Sun & Moon offer in their anime incarnations being applied to the original Pokemon anime? Sign me UP! Outside of the fact this is a retelling and Ho-oh will appear, not much is known.
But we will likely learn more when the launches in Japan sometime in 2017.
