Pokemon the Movie 20: “Back to the Anime’s Roots!”




The 20th money-grubbing movie of the Pokemon franchise has remade the first few episodes of the anime, explaining how Ash and his legendary Pikachu first met and bound to be ill-received by fans as a lazy attempt to rehash an old story that every die-hard fan likely already knows about since their first indoctrination into the cult of the pocket monster.

The official Pokemon the Movie 20: I Choose You! trailer:

A rather bizarre CM for Pokemon Sun and Moon was also released featuring gold-medal sprinter Usain Bolt:

The film will also possess another smaller original story where Ash and his trusty companion seek out a legendary Pokemon; the film will debut on July 15th.

      Yeah I am too, excited to watch something I years ago, something I can watch online right no as well. It’s so exciting! I mean look at the new animations! It’s like they are barely different from the Anime! Milk me more Nintendo/Pokemon! Nostalgia feels so good!

    This shit got old after 3 seasons, let alone 19 movies – we GET it. Ash is too nice to catch the fuckers, they basically have to beg to have him capture them in his balls. It’s so goddamn pacifist it makes me wanna stomp some kittens.

    When @RealDonaldTrump hears of this garbage, Japan is getting nuked again, or so I hope.

    Problem with this entire idea is that you just know they’re going to adapt Kasumi/Misty out of the story entirely like she never existed, since she’s not a main character anymore and the kids won’t know who she is or why she’s not around anymore.

  • Rehashing the origin story is NOT for die hard fans. It is for the 4th or maybe 5th generation to see where it all began. I am sure many kids who get into it now may never have seen the original stories. Let’s face it, that is a huge amount of time that children do not or will not devote. So yeah, this movie is for the newcomers, not the die hard.

        I’ve always seen pokemon trainers as a sort of beast master class, albeit played down a little to make it appeal to kids.

        The world of pokemon actually has some pretty messed up monsters and if you do the research, it’s implied that the monsters could and even would destory the humans if not for poke’mon researchers.

        A pokemon trainer is like a hands on field researcher. The vast majority of pokemon in the pokemon universe are more drawn to childern, hence the young age of most trainers.

        Point being, it’s okay in the poke’ world for pokemon to fight each other because it’s a way of co-existance. That’s why team rocket and other “villans” are generally so well funded.

        But, to make them fight for the sake of the fight, not realizing their poteinal to aid and befriend humanity can be damaging too. This is why Ash and some of the others are the “good guys.” They don’t see pokemon as meer weapons.

          Pokemon setting as a bit weird if you go into details.

          Some pokemon are apparently sentient.
          So they arent so much beasts as different species who live in the wild like those blue cats from avatar.

          At the same time, if you try to be realistic and model the ecosystem, its apparent that theres a lot of cannibalism among them, and that humans eat sentient creatures as well as using them as living weapons.
          Which is seen as normal in the culture, because all this modern tech didnt appear out of nowhere, and in the past humans would have had to survive somehow.

          So if anything, the morals of humans in that world is quite a bit different from ours.
