About a month ago it was confirmed that Pokémon The Movie: I Choose You is getting a theatrical release in the West, and a new teaser trailer for the November arrival also confirms some neat events to accompany the film.

First of all, here's the teaser trailer.

There's more, though. Starting on 19th September the official Pokémon site will share a code to get a special Pikachu - in a HAT - for Pokémon Sun and Moon. The kicker is that the code will unlock one of six hat combos but you can only use it once, so you have to choose your Pikachu and then redeem it at the right time. The hat schedule below.

  • 9/19/17 – 9/25/17: Original hat (Kanto and Johto regions)
  • 9/26/17 – 10/2/17: Hoenn region hat
  • 10/3/17 – 10/9/17: Sinnoh region hat
  • 10/10/17 – 10/16/17: Unova region hat
  • 10/17/17 – 10/23/17: Kalos region hat
  • 10/24/17 – 10/30/17: Alola region hat

Finally, those that attend a screening in November will get a QR code for a Pikachu wearing Ash's hat, and this one will be redeemable in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon; attendees will also get a never-before-seen card for Pokémon TCG.

Are any of you planning to go to a screening of the movie?
