    Yeah, this doesn’t bode well on two fronts. 1) This smacks of remaking movie#1 x 9000 and 2) Movie#20 and Movie#21 had Ash traveling on his own before other cast members join him for their respective movie before going on their merry way. Here in Movie#22, Brock and Misty appear to be traveling with him so the big questions they have to answer are how and why they’re traveling with Ash? CGI looks to be solid though but those two glaring things I cited they have to answer.

    Why does it look like Robot Chicken? That was my 1st thought.

    I wasn't fan of the last 2 movies and have yet to see them, but at least they tried to do something new. This looks like GF is once again trying to milk on people that were fans during Gen I (the same people that played Pokémon GO when playing it was considered cool) with nostalgia. I'll wait for more info, but if this is just re-telling of the first movie without any added value, I'll stick to the original.

      Eh I got a Wallace and Gromit feel over Robot Chicken but it might as well be with the apparent recycled plot of Movie#1. Hell even the Nurse Joy from that movie is there in the exact same outfit. Only thing that might be different is that Mewtwo Mega Evolves... hence Evolution. I’m sorry but their Kanto love affair has hit critical mass. If this movie doesn’t bomb in Japan, they got a serious freaking screw loose over there and is yet another black eye towards SuMo(no movie involving the cast).

        I'm getting a Robot Chicken vibe from this. I'm not sure whether it looks good yet, but I'm interested in seeing it.

        It'll never top the original though.

          I'm all for revisiting Kanto/Gen 1 (if only for nostalgia's sake) but if this is going to be a more-or-less shot-for-shot remake of the original? eh... I'd much rather they did something like remaster the original (and maybe re-release in theaters) than completely re-animate in CGI that, I don't know, doesn't even look that great to me, it kinda just looks like footage from a game or the kind of lower-quality CGI they use for animated TV shows (or maybe I'm just getting tired of CGI lol)

            So basically it's a CGI Remake of Movie 1?

            That's... just... I don't even know how to describe it.

            It almost makes me not even want to watch it.

              There may be new twists/extra or altered scenes, but yeah, it does look like a scene for scene remake right now.

                >Remake of M1
                >Art style looks like claymation

                Not looking forward to it. I would have liked to see a new story for Mewtwo but here we will simply get a remake of the first movie hence we know how the movie will play out and the animation is just garbage. A new original story would have been so much better but nope, they had to remake such a glorious movie like the first one.

                Yep, my bad. I'm used to typing Game Freak instead of TPCi when it comes to disappointing news about Pokémon.

                Shouldn't judge a movie without actually seeing it....

                I'm not a fan of the style at all. Knowing me I'm still going to watch it but yeah not impressed so far.

                  YO. I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE.

                  People can say whatever they want, but pokemon is best at the cell-shaded style. I saw people saying this is what the switch game should look like, but I'm in the camp that disagrees Too much CGI makes all the pokemon and people look more plasticy and like dolls rather than anime/ fantasy characters. It's just really uncanny. A cartoony style ages much better. I have no doubt in several years this is going to look extremely dated.

                    Man, i am hype for Remake too. I wonder how it will differ from the first original film.

                    Also, i am hoping FlowBack will peform an ending theme of the film.

                      *Looks at CGI* Did they spend their whole budget on Detective Pikachu and had to resort to Gumby claymation for this film?
