The first CGI animated Pokémon movie has arrived. Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution is a reimagining of Pokémon: The First Movie, which was originally released in North America in 1999. Whether you’ve loved Pokémon since that movie’s premiere or you’re a more recent fan, this is a fun way to take a modern look at Ash and Pikachu’s original big-screen adventure.
When researchers discover and exploit a fossil of the Mythical Pokémon Mew, they unleash a creation that goes against the very laws of nature: Mewtwo, a Legendary Pokémon intended for use as a tool of destruction. But as Mewtwo becomes aware of its own dubious origin, it begins to resent its human creators and seeks revenge—and Ash, Pikachu, and their friends find themselves at the center of its rampage! With the future of the Pokémon world at stake, will our heroes be able to overcome Mewtwo’s challenge…and will Mewtwo be able to find a new meaning for its life?
