This article is about a movie from the Pokémon anime that has not yet aired anywhere in the world. As such, it is a reflection of what is currently known about the movie, rather than coverage of the movie as a whole.
(Japanese: ミュウツーの逆襲EVOLUTION Mewtwo's Counterattack Evolution, officially known as Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution in Japan) is the twenty-second Pokémon movie overall. It will be released in Japan on July 12, 2019.
It was first revealed in a teaser trailer following M21 in Japan, which featured Mewtwo.
It is the first-ever fully CGI animated Pokémon movie, and a remake of the first movie Mewtwo Strikes Back.
This movie is co-directed by Kunihiko Yuyama and Motonori Sakakibara, the former returning after the previous movie was directed by Tetsuo Yajima.
Takeshi Shudō receives a posthumous credit for this movie's screenplay.
The first poster for the movie is similar to the original teaser poster for Mewtwo Strikes Back.
This is one of two Pokémon-related movies to be released in 2019, with the other being the live-action Detective Pikachu movie. Coincidentally, both of them feature Mewtwo in a prominent role and heavily use CGI.
