It’s a classic story– a sleepy seaside community starts to become terrorized by outside forces. As mystery begins to mount, a group of ragtag heroes must come together to vanquish the newfound evil. No, I’m not talking about Jaws, I’m talking about the upcoming Pokémon movie, titled, Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us.

If this sounds a little familiar to those in Japan, don’t worry, you’re not experiencing déjà vu. The movie was previously released in Japan under the title Pokémon the Movie: Everyone’s Story as a direct sequel to 2017‘s Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!
Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us continues the soft-reboot initiated by its predecessor. While still focusing on the adventures of Ash and Pikachu, the trailer boasts new characters, new adventures, and a whole lot of Lugia. Hopefully, for our sake, Pikachu doesn’t have any dialogue this time around.
