Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us Heads to U.S. Theaters

Following up on its Japanese debut earlier this month, Pokémon the Movie: Everyone’s Story now has official English release plans. The feature is coming to multiple territories this holiday season as Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us, with Fathom Events’ U.S. screenings set for November 24, 26, and 28, as well as December 1. 

Check out the teaser trailer: 


Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us tells the story of Ash and Pikachu as they journey to a small seaside town filled with a diverse set of characters, including a young athlete, a compulsive liar, a shy researcher, a bitter old woman, and a little girl with a big secret.

Every year, the townspeople gather to celebrate the Legendary Pokémon Lugia, who brings the wind that saved the town from destruction many years ago. The festival is a time for celebration, with a Pokémon Catching Race and a ceremonial flame burning brightly to summon Lugia. But when a series of incidents threatens not just the festival, but all the people and Pokémon who call the town home, it’s going to take more than just Ash and Pikachu to save the day. Will these people be able to put aside their differences and work together to rescue their town? Or will it all end in destruction?

Stay tuned to Fathom Events’ website for more on locations and tickets.
