If you're a fan of the monster-collecting ways of Pokémon, you may well be happy to know that one of the franchise's most recent movies has now appeared on Netflix. That's tonight's plans sorted.

Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! is the first film in the series' newly-introduced alternate timeline, which has now been expanded to include last year's Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us and 2019's upcoming Pokémon The Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution. The film loosely follows Ash Ketchum's story through the anime's opening season (albeit with a new plot focus), serving as one of the many recent releases designed to kick us right in the nostalgia.

The film is reportedly available in North America, Europe, and Australia on the service, with a runtime of 1 hour 37 minutes. Here's Netflix's short but sweet movie description:

"When Ash tries to pick his first Pokémon on his birthday, he ends up with a stubborn Pikachu and they embark on a journey to find the legendary Ho-Oh."

We actually posted a review of the film when it first hit western cinemas back in 2017. If you're interested, feel free to give it a read.

Will you be giving this a watch later on today? Let us know with a comment below.
