The Fire/Flying-type Pokemon, Ho-oh, is the very first legendary Pokemon that Ash/ Satoshi has ever encountered waaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the anime’s very first episode. After 20 years of waiting, Ho-oh and Ash finally meet again in the 20th Pokemon movie, which is titled, “Pokemon – I choose you!”, the very same title used in the TV anime’s very first episode!

The video reveals that the movie will be premiering on July 15, 2017. Aside from the video reveal, the film’s poster was also unveiled in the variety show, Oha Suta. It features Ash and Pikachu, as well as the Gold version mascot itself, Ho-oh.

From the trailer to the title to the featured Pokemon, this latest Pokemon movie is really paying homage to the TV anime’s first episode. It should only be fitting, as Pokemon is currently celebrating its 20th anniversary, and this is also the 20th movie already. Here’s a better look at that new poster visual:
