Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us To Receive Cinematic Screenings within the UK

Those eager to see the new Pokemon film, officially known outside of Japan as Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us, will be excited to learn that the film will receive a limited cinematic showing across the UK later this year; as announced earlier today on social media and on the official website.

Just like last years Pokemon film, known as Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You – which is also available on DVD and Blu-Ray via Manga Entertainment UK, The Pokemon Company have teamed up with Fathom Events to bring this feature-length-film to the big screen.
Unfortunately screening dates (or locations) have yet to be announced but we do know that the film will receive its North American screening during November; so a UK screening shouldn’t be too far behind.

Synopsis: Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us tells the story of Ash and Pikachu as they journey to a small seaside town filled with a diverse set of characters, including a young athlete, a compulsive liar, a shy researcher, a bitter old woman, and a little girl with a big secret.

Every year, the townspeople gather to celebrate the Legendary Pokémon Lugia, who brings the wind that saved the town from destruction many years ago. The festival is a time for celebration, with a Pokémon Catching Race and a ceremonial flame burning brightly to summon Lugia. But when a series of incidents threatens not just the festival, but all the people and Pokémon who call the town home, it’s going to take more than just Ash and Pikachu to save the day. Will these people be able to put aside their differences and work together to rescue their town? Or will it all end in destruction?

Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us will receive a limited UK cinematic screening later this year but in the meantime you can checkout the teaser trailer below.
