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.
Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution (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 is a CGI remake of the first movie, Mewtwo Strikes Back.
It will premiere with Japanese vocals and English subtitles at Anime Expo on July 4, 2019. 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.
This is the first-ever fully CGI animated Pokémon movie.
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.
