Dogasu's Backpack | Movies & Specials Guide | Pocket Monsters The Movie "Mewtwo Strikes Back! Evolution"

The numerous teasers and trailers that come out for Pocket Monsters The Movie "Mewtwo Strikes Back! Evolution," a Japanese film produced in Japanese for a Japanese audience are, not surprisingly, all in Japanese. This page collects those advertisements and translates them into English so that fans all over the world can feel just as much hype for the film as their counterparts in Japan.

July 13th, 2018: First Teaser

The first teaser premiered after the end credits of the previous year's film, Pocket Monsters The Movie "Everyone's Story." The teaser has yet to be uploaded online so all the screenshots below are approximations taken from the original first movie.

The teaser starts with a black screen. Text that says something along the lines of "The Legend is Back" (伝説が戻ってくる) appears in both English and Japanese. After that, some bubbles that'll look very familiar to Movie One fans start floating up from the bottom of the screen.

As the bubbles continue to rise, we hear a voice that strongly resembles Masachika Ichimura, the original voice of Mewtwo from Mewtwo Strikes Back!, recite the opening monologue from the first movie: "What is this place? Who am I?" (ここはどこだ?私は誰だ?). We then see a shot similar to the one below of Mewtwo opening its eyes, rendered in CG.

After this, the movie's logo comes up: Pocket Monsters The Movie "Mewtwo Strikes Back! Evolution" (劇場版ポケットモンスター「ミュウツーの逆襲 evolution). The logo, at least now anyway, consists of the word "Evolution" written out in English slapped onto the bottom right-hand corner of the old Movie 1 logo from 1998.

Finally, white text on a black screen announces that the new movie is coming out in 2019.
