Though the Pokémon series will always be a video game franchise first and foremost, the anime is arguably the second most important pillar, following the adventures of Ash Ketchum and his ill-fated quest to try winning a Pokémon league. The first movie based on the anime was Pokémon The First Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back, and just about every year since has seen the release of another movie.
Today, this year’s Pokémon movie—Pokémon the Move: Everyone’s Story—saw its debut in Japan, and at the end of it, a teaser was included for next year’s movie. Masachika Ishimura, the original voice of Mewtwo is heard saying “Who am I? What am I?” before a title card is shown for the first movie with “Evolution” tacked on to the corner. Perhaps this new film will delve deeper into Mewtwo’s Mega Evolution forms? Only time will tell.
