Pokemon The Movie 2018 - teaser trailer

Pokemon The Movie 2018 is set for launch in Japan on July 13th, 2018. As you can see in the trailer, it looks like they're going with a different art style this time around. It's a style that's hard to appreciate in stills, but I think it looks pretty nice in motion. What do you guys think?

Thanks to Cartoonami for the heads up!

Huh seems to be a sequel to this years movie. I guess they are going to do like the Gen 4 Trilogy of movies where they were all connected. I wonder if this means that the movies will not tie with the current anime season anymore (which is kinda good)

Edit: Oh yeah the silhouette in the water seems to be Lugia. Nice that Johto is getting love with this year's and next year's movie.

A gyaru? ... I never thought Pokemon would jump in THAT fad. o_o
There's so many manga/anime/LN that suddenly have prominent gyaru characters...
Was there even just one time the pokemon anime/movie participated in an anime/manga/LN fad like that?

(Not that I don't like that, I've seen very interesting things done with these characters, and I actually like how colorful they always are, and this one is particularly tasteful.)

This character doesn't seem that out of the ordinary for a Pokemon character to me. But there was that one time Pokemon participated in a fad; the very beginning. Remember Jynx?

Yep, I had forgotten that Jynx was based on the Ganguro Gyaru. :O
But at that time, their presence in the media was very low... Not as much as now with anime like "Please Tell Me! Galko-chan" (good), "My First Girlfriend is a Gal"(trash), and manga like "Hoshino, Me o Tsubutte" and easily more than 10 other manga in the last 2 years.
But yeah, she doesn't look out of the ordinary... And I wasn't negative at all, I like the Gyaru esthetic in a way (mainly when it's not done as pure sexually objectifying eye-candy like most manga/anime), and this one is very good.

Oh, why don't your ruin my whole childhood then.

I, too, hate it when modern media goes back in time and overwrites that which came before it

Liking the animation style so far. Really curious to find out more.

Why do so many people think this is a continuation of I Choose You? It was perfectly self-contained.

I think it is because of the hat.

The hat is the same one from I Choose You, features Lugia and the music that plays at the end is the Japanese theme from Pokemon The Movie 2000.

It has been many, many years since I have seen a Pokemon movie. Can anyone please tell me if Gary appears in any of the Pokemon movies?

I think he had a small cameo in the first Pokemon movie and thats it. Gary hasn't been a thing in the anime in years.

He hasn't done much in the series since Ash defeated him back in 2002's Johto League. The last movie (M20) was his first appearance of any kind (cameo or otherwise) since an episode from 2009.

Thank you for your detailed response!

Thinking it can't be sheer coincidence that with this movie this alternate retelling is now in Gen 2, will the 2020 Movie coincide with the release of the Gen IV Remakes [AKA the year after Pokemon Switch]?

Stylistically, I think it has quite a bit in common with “Pokémon: I Choose You!” (which was pretty excellent in my opinion.)
