Pokemon celebrated its 20th Anniversary in a big way a few years ago when the 20th film in the franchise revisited Ash and Pikachu's first adventures in the anime with a major facelift. Pokemon the Movie: I Choose You! is now streaming on Netflix in the United States. Unfortunately for fans of the Japanese original, the movie is only available in its English dub.

'Pokemon the Movie: I Choose You!' is Now Streaming on Netflix


Pokemon the Movie: I Choose You! was the first film in the current Sun and Moon iteration of the anime series and celebrates Pokemon's 20th anniversary. Directed by Shoji Yonemura, it was first released in Japan in July 2017 with a limited theatrical run worldwide on November 5. It then had its English language broadcast premiere on Disney XD November 25. The film acts as sort of a soft-reboot of the anime franchise with a loose retelling of Ash's adventures through the Kanto region.
 
Although it shares a lot of similarities with Ash's adventures through the Indigo League -- such as Ash catching his first non-Pikachu Pokemon Caterpie, releasing Butterfree into the wild, winning against the Celadon gym leader, and his first encounter with Charmander -- there are a few new twists such as new companions, visits from Pokemon who had yet to be introduced to the series at the time like the legendary bird Ho-Oh, and a threat from a brand new legendary Pokemon, Marshadow.
