From an idea by Satoshi Tajiri / Other adaptation by Tsunekazu Ishihara / Text by Takeshi Shudo and Shoji Yonemura

Awesome Pokémon adventures inspired by the best-selling Pokémon movies!

As the twentieth film in the series, Pokemon: I Choose You! returns to origins of the Pokemon series when Ash first met Pikachu!

When Ash Ketchum oversleeps on his 10th birthday, he ends up with a stubborn Pikachu instead of the first partner Pokémon he wanted! But after a rocky start, Ash and Pikachu become close friends and true partners—and when they catch a rare glimpse of the Legendary Pokémon Ho-Oh in flight, they make plans to seek it out together.

Trainers Verity and Sorrel join Ash on his journey, and along the way, they meet the mysterious Mythical Pokémon Marshadow. When they near their goal, an arrogant Trainer named Cross stands in their way. Can Ash and Pikachu defeat him and reach Ho-Oh as they promised, or will their journey end here?
