Along with ticket pre-orders going live on Fathom Event’s website, the English trailer for Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You has just been posted on YouTube! The film is in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the animated series, and its plot draws from elements of the series’ birth. It also stars the legendary Pokémon Marshadow which will be made available for players to download to Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon this October.

UPDATE: New details have been revealed about the distribution plans for Ash Cap Pikachu in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. The I Choose You Cap Pikachu that corresponds to the hat design in the movie will be given out to those who see the film in theaters via QR Code. For the other Ash Cap Pikachu, a serial code will be posted on Pokemon.com on a weekly basis starting September 19th. However, you are only able to choose one of the six Pikachu – so choose wisely!

  • Original Cap: September 19th–25th
  • Hoenn Cap: September 26th–October 2nd
  • Sinnoh Cap: October 3rd–9th
  • Unova Cap: October 10th–16th
  • Kalos Cap: October 17th–23rd
  • Alola Cap: October 24th–30th

What do you think!?

  • Desu-er Seraph

    This movie still causes massive salt

    • Desu-er Seraph

      For moi

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I’d love to see this movie. I gotta find out if it’s coming near first tho. Last time I checked there weren’t any theaters, but maybe they added more

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Ooooooooo there is one near me! Now I just gotta find someone to go with haha

  • KᑌᑭᑭO

    Oh, I’d love to see that movie, it looks good so far!

  • UnburdenedLegume

    It looks so fresh, cant wait to see it!

  • Sunny

    There are 3 theaters near me (5-15 miles) screening it. I’ll go if I can find someone to go with and if they all aren’t destroyed by the hurricane.

  • Lucas

    I want pikachu with the classic (Kanto) hat

  • Shady

    These Pikachus r literally stupid …………I had enough give me USUM news NOWWWWWWW!!

  • Monkeyfuzz

    “PLEASE NOTE: You will only be able to use this code once! The date you choose to enter the code will determine which hat and move set your special Pikachu will have. This means you’re going to have to be very careful when deciding on which Pikachu you wish to add to your party. Study the schedule below, and get ready to choose your Pikachu!”

    Why? Am I the only one that wants to collect them all?

    As to the movie, I doubt it’ll be in any Cinema that I could possibly get to, so I hope it comes on TV here soon like the last movies did, and that the QR code is Universal so I can still get that Pika. I’m more looking forward to Marshadow but it’l still be nice to have.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    A twitter user by the name ”GekkougaLarry” lives in Japan, near a Pokémon Center and there was a meeting there recently where he was told big news is coming this month for both the anime and the games.

  • I’m not going to the movie for a Pikachu that probably won’t even be transferable to Gen 8

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Also the Riddler is active again on Chinese forums. I expect them to do something in the near future

  • For all who hated Dusk form being a F*CKING event exclusive, you better not tell me you enjoy this idea alot

    • Monkeyfuzz

      The only difference here is everyone who gets the games early can get the Lycanroc, you’d need 6 games to get all of these -_-

      • Cause I love how Dusk is a early release then anyone can get

        This…. You get one hat and can’t change it after, which is f*cking BS when Japan got all of them (No offense to anyone here from Japan, but sometimes I hate Japan!)

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I don’t understand it at all, it’s not like it’s hard for them to distribute all of them to everyone. Additional Z-crystals would just join the first in your bag anyway like when you add them to multiple pokemon so that can’t be a reason.

      • Ultron

        6 games or 6 pokemon club trainer accounts..? Cause you don’t have to link a game

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Oh it’s by club account? I thought it was by when you redeem the code on your game?

          • Ultron

            Well it says they are giving the codes out on the website, I assumed that meant you would get an email if you have a trainer club account through pokemon.com. I could definitely be wrong

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I thought it just meant one code for everyone appears on the site and you redeem it during the period the one you want is being distributed.

          • Ultron

            Hm..could be that. I’d like it to be the account thing though xD

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Same, since I may have done it before…

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      It doesn’t make sense for it to be an event exclusive considering it’s just a form of a pre-existing Pokemon, and Event exclusive regular Pkms are annoying

  • Desu-er Seraph

    I have found the pinnacle of dumb
    This kid had an Aggron
    It had thunderbolt, Ice Punch, Outrage, and Counter
    It tried to counter my moonblast

    • Desu-er Seraph

      FURY CUTTER DOUBLADE
      WHAT IS THIS KID

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Share the replay pls

      • Desu-er Seraph

        Its up

    • Should have switched
      Counter for Earthquake
      Ice punch for Iron Tail
      And Thunderbolt for Rock Slide

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Ice Punch over Outrage imo.

    • Why did you use Moonblast on an Aggron

      • Desu-er Seraph

        Because everything else was dead and Deci was my wincon so I was trying to sack the florges for a swtich

  • Desu-er Seraph

        Easily

    • Dis guy…

      • Desu-er Seraph

        Gr8

    • Seraph wtf were you doing. Why the hell did you send out Blastoise and Nidoqueen to fight Sceptile

      • Desu-er Seraph

        I thought the nido was going to live
        And I was sacking the toise to get a switch in

        • Desu-er Seraph

          That’s to be honest what happened

          Especially since Nidoqueen has bulk up the assnut

    • EarthenWarrior

      *Pukes up blood and bile*

      • Desu-er Seraph

        COUNTER AGGRON AGAINST MOONBLAST

  • When is Coro Coro? I need it

    • Daedardus

      It’s already leaked, no info.

      • Don’t joke with me like that I might believe you

        • Daedardus

          Oh, I was supposed to post this next week, sorry.

    • EarthenWarrior

      10-14th

    • Desu-er Seraph

      I predict tuesday

    • Ultron

      10 bucks it’s either no info at all or a teaser that more info will come next month

  • Desu-er Seraph

    Shoutout to Spark Wishcash

    • EarthenWarrior

      Word

  • EarthenWarrior
  • Ultron

    Ughhhhh I thought the stupid no cussing thing had been lifted already grrrrr

    • You can saying fucking but not f*ck

      • Ultron

        But I didn’t say f*ck 🙁

      • Good thing every curse word I say, I censor

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I tend to just not use them, there are plenty of other words within the English Vocabulary I can use, or gifs, to convey what I want. I don’t have a problem with it I just find it easier to avoid offending others.

  • Desu-er Seraph

    Me: *asks the economics teacher an economic question I wondered*
    Teacher: I dunno
    Me: Ok
    Me inside: HOLY SH1T I WANNA KNOW FUCKDICK TELL ME GODDAMN REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

    • Daedardus

      What was the question? I might be able to answer.

      • Desu-er Seraph

        If Miami basically gets obliterated by this hurricane what happens to the economy of America

        • Daedardus

          That’s not a truly easy one, but the answer probably is a definite impact on the local affected area in the short term, but only a moderate impact on the US economy as a whole. Rebuilding everything costs a lot of money, but it’s only a small percentage of the total cost that goes around in keeping the economy up. It will be at least five years plus before life would be as normal as before such disaster, but Miami can recover. There are worse places in the world that just get abandoned and nobody wants to bother rebuilding stuff.

          • Desu-er Seraph

            I see… thanks for tellin me!

  • Monkeyfuzz
  • Desu-er Seraph

    Wouldn’t have agreed with that but the screwed my poor baby in HIS movie

    • Ultron

      Did they really? It seemed like they shoehorned him in…what a shame. Why didn’t they just use one of the other two gen 7 movies for Marshadow…

      • Because there is only goona be one more gen 7 movie before gen 8 on Switch

  • Shady
    • Wow, they went for a Speed Racer reference

      • Shady

        it kinda sarcasm but I am not sure how I feel about that.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Masquerain is such a neat Mon to have in your in-game team

    • Ultron

      They need to recon it to bug/water though

    • Desu-er Seraph

      IKR?!

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I mean in a regular playthrough. Lears Silver Wind at lv32 (ORAS) and Quiver Dance at lv52. Plus Intidimate, its pretty underrated imo

        • Desu-er Seraph

          Exactlyyyy
          I used one in Oras
          Masq is my child

    • EarthenWarrior

      Stupid moth

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I mainly used it for Sweet Scent.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Wish it was Water/Bug tho…..Would have been better

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Thank goodness

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Oh dear this is actually great

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Kind of lame they won’t be giving out ALL the Pikachus for everyone, but oh well. The only one that matters is the Original hat Pikachu anyway hahaha

    • EarthenWarrior

      Don’t give a flying frack, I just want some mortherfreaking USUM GNEWS

      • What’s a Usum

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Did I ask for your opinion? I didn’t think so……

    • My brother wants Kanto’s but I want Sinnoh hat Pikachu (favorite color is green)

    • I’m not sure whether I want Sinnoh, Unova, Kalos, or Alola (I already have Kanto/Johto and Hoenn)

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Booooo did you some how get them from the Japanese release? You suck hahaha

        • There’s a bunch of YouTubers out there who give a bunch of them away

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Clones?

          • I guess

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Meh that’s lame……..I wish I could get them all

    • This is a Christian server, no swears

      • EarthenWarrior

        Could’ve sworn it was Satanism

      • That didn’t answer the question

  • Shady
    • If only

      • Shady

        It looks godly and nice PS effort

    • Shady

      Well I know Little of Japanese it called Taipu: Furu which means Type:Perfect which make sense but this leaker kinda stupid by pushing these old pics and Necrozma in the poster.

      • he isn’t a leaker.

        • Shady

          wat should I call him Photoshoper?

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            More appropriate than leaker

          • Shady

            Leaker isn’t bad word I guess.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            But “leaker” implies they’re releasing REAL stuff. This is just clearly Photoshoped lol

          • Shady

            I thought leaker will be a leaker regardless if he releasing real stuff or not

          • It’s not leaking if it’s not coming from any actual source

          • Shady

            who said that?

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Already confirmed fake by Serebii

          • Shady

            if u read mu comments u know that I know it’s fake at the first place.

          • idk i guess?

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          THANK YOU. I feel like this pre release season everyone is getting a little loose with the terms “leaks” and “rumors” Like I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to see the Bulbagarden Leaks/Rumors thread be over run with obviously fake stuff just because we don’t have anything good to talk about…..Sheeh….the only more annoying than the fake stuff posted is when people keep posting video of people talking about said fake stuff that’s CLEARLY click bait and acting like it’s some kind of proof……We really need something ……hahaha

        • Sunny

          So do we call this person a rumorer?

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I think it looks good, not sure why the name would go from Silvally back to a ‘Type:’ name though.

        • Shady

          I want to say this point too that’s actually dump GF will not add a new pkmn in the third game.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Yeah it’s almost certain they won’t, more forms maybe though.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Looks coo, but I think Silvally’s current form is all we’re gonna get. I’m not convinced it’ll get a new form. It’s supposed to be a chimera so it has to look somewhat like one doesn’t it? lol

  • Sunny

    Well I’m on a flight back home to escape Irma. I will try to make progress on my much delayed Sun Locke- due to summer homework and the actual school year. I hope everyone that is in its path on this site are safe and well prepared.

  • EarthenWarrior

    show of hands who’s on right now

  • Yayyy, I’m starting homework this late.

  • EarthenWarrior

    …….I think she doesn’t want to talk to me anymore…

    • EarthenWarrior

      Oh….she’s having an anxiety attack…that’s why she blocked me but it was temporarily

      I didn’t nay couldn’t lose her

      • Yikes

        • EarthenWarrior

          I was freaking out, but she has is way worse
          But we’re working things through

          • I couldn’t imagine what an anxiety attack feels like. I’ve never had one, even though I’ve stressed myself out plenty of times.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It can vary, with mine I tend not to be able to breathe properly, my body heats up and my head feels like there’s a vice clamping around it and I panic alot.

          • That’s gotta be scary. I just sweat a lot if I’m stressed

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It is, I have medication but it doesn’t really stop it, waiting to see a Doctor for other options. I get the sweating thing too, which is bad in itself and can be embarrassing.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Good that you can work things through, stick at it and support each other.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I just can’t lose her, she actually likes me…
            Her father’s a dick and her mother is getting a divorce and there’s some sexual identity crisis but her Papa Bear is gonna be there for her

          • I hope you get through it man, I’m rooting for you

    • Shady

      Dude I warn u ……some girls want some attention to rise their ego I don’t if u continue or not but u should know the life doesn’t want u to achieve happiness through somebody it want to looking at it inside ur self.

      • Dude, he just said she just had an anxiety attack, and just blocked him temporarily.

        • Shady

          My advise can work both way ….I am not talking about relationship with girls I am talking about how to live in the this freaking life

          • I suppose, but I was just informing you in case you didn’t see his update on it

          • Shady

            I read wat he say but I know how he think and want to save him from his own drama

  • Tick

    nice, very excited to get these.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    That Type: Full leak looks incredible, too bad its already confirmed fake by Serebii

  • towelgirl21
    • Where’s Team Magma when you need them?

      • Shady

        Dude we r in summer …..at least it’s still summer here

    Does Golisopod’s Emergency Exit not activate during Totem Battles?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Pretty sure it does, maybe you just didn’t meet the conditions.

  • Sunny

    The flight has ended. I defeated the Totem Kommo-o with Gon the Golisopod. And now I am about to advance to Ultra Space. Also if someone would be kind enough to help me with a trade evolution my Youpi the Machoke would very much appreciate to become a Youpi the Machamp.

    • Sunny

      This is about my nuzlocke in my Sun version.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I can help you with Machamp if you’re on now, would like my Shiny Machoke Evolved.

      • Sunny

        Thanks. I am on a car heading home right now. I will be able to trade tomorrow if that is fine since it will take me an hour to get to a place with Internet.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I should be able to, depending on what time.

          • Sunny

            Well, due to the Hurricane also postponing all of my assignments, any time tomorrow is fine with me. Just let me know how your day is looking tomorrow. I’m quite exited to trade. I got lucky and my Machoke has No Gaurd!

    • ShinyXatu

      Nah, it’ll probably be revealed on Tuesday at Apple’s iPhone event.

    • Ultron

      Let’s cancel it and divert all resources to AC switch instead.

  • Sunny

    Just defeated Lusamine. Her Clefable was boosting like crazy, I could barely put a dent on it. I was lucky that it got burned, it used Metronome that became Role Play which led to a switch in ability from Magic Gaurd to Keen Eye and that allowed for burns to affect it, and than I got a curt with Fire Fang after it exhausted the PP of its Moonlight. Otherwise, she may have swept through my team and my nuzlocke would have ended there. If Metronome didn’t become Role Play, I would’ve lost hands down. Now it’s time to catch Nebby!

  • Sunny

    Is it fine if I make an exception for Nebby with the naming rule of the Nuzlocke?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Well it is a set encounter, so probably.

      • Sunny

        Cool. I am probably going to have to use him. I just have 4 Pokémon left and there really is only one other area that I can catch a Pokémon for me to have 6 Pokémon against the E4. Assuming no one faints.

    Here’s some Advice for Hurricane Kyogre: (Which i will be in the path of, so it’s coming to haunt me for this…)
    1- Do not Swallow the water! it’s full of poison and poison types!
    2- Do not use Surf, the current will carry you to a DEAD END!
    3- Eat lots of Persim berries so you don’t get confused and hurt yourself.
    4- If Officer Jenny shows up, listen to her, unless you want your ear tugged and carried away like Brock…
    5-Bike safely on the route out of this region, there’s a lot of bikes out there and trainers are getting nuzlocked onto the road, so be careful!
    6-Use Charge before the storm hits, Electric types can help, but during the storm this can be dangerous, so do it BEFORE!
    7-Keep a good supply of berries, potions, and fresh water, always!
    8-Tune your pokegear to the news channel and make sure you keep updated with the weather effect of this crazy ability of Kyogre.
    9-Do not go in the tall grass, no normal pokemon is stupid enough to be there during this weather, so don’t be stupid yourself!
    10-Items can be replaced, but you and your pokemon CANNOT, Save your game responsibly!

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    So what starter types would you prefer for gen 8?

    Personally, I want water/ghost, fire/ice, grass/steel.

    Not sure what they’d look like, but one can dream!

    • Sunny

      I am of the same opinion.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I doubt Fire/Ice will ever happen for a starter, if at all.

      It depends on what they are based on, we can only really slightly guess the Fire one.
      I feel a Fire/Fairy or Fire/Steel could be good. Maybe Water/Fighting or Water/Ghost and Grass/Dark or Grass/Electric.

    What’s up y’all?

    So a little update for my switch question last week! Sadly was unable to buy my switch today but I did manage to put the splatoon 2 bundle along with Zelda on layaway at one of my local Walmarts! Last one in stock too! I am so excited to finally get a hold of a switch! Hopefully by end of September I will be able to buy it off! This will be my first time buying a home console brand new so that’s something interesting! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/393c7f786af8664b97117febdd5d07a9257c792142f748e4a7f15e18d6532ba4.jpg
