Brock And Misty Left Out From The New Pokémon Anime Movie!

July 12, 2017

 The new Pokémon anime Movie produced by OLM, is about to hit screens in Japan. The movie is titled as 'Gekijō-ban Poketto Monsutā Kimi ni kimeta!' in Japan; and as 'Pokémon the Movie 20: I Choose You' for the rest of the world. This movie is the 20th Pokemon movie and the first one in the Sun and Moon series. The movie is a remake of the Indigo League Saga, and is released to commemorate the anime's 20th anniversary.

'Pokémon the Movie 20: I Choose You' was first premiered at Japan Expo which was held in France on 6th July. The movie got negative feedback for omitting two immensely popular characters Brock and Misty. Both are Ash's precious companions and the three of them are together for a very long time in the original anime. Yet the creaters decided to replace them with completely new characters Souji and Makoto. Souji is a young trainer who aims to become a Pokémon Professor, while Makoto is an energetic trainer who travels alongside Ash and Souji.

The cast of the film is as follows:

Apart from Souji and Makoto the film also introduces some new characters such as:
