posted on 2017-03-16 23:45 EDT by Jennifer Sherman

The official Pokémon movie website revealed advance tickets details for this year's Gekijōban Pocket Monster: Kimi ni Kimeta! (Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!) film on Wednesday. The tickets will be available from April 15 to July 14 and include a code for Ash's Pikachu for the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon Nintendo 3DS games.

Six varieties of Ash's Pikachu will be available with Ash's trademark hats that he wears in six different regions in the anime. The Pikachu that players receive will depend on the date. Each Pikachu with a regional hat will be available during two periods from April 15 to October 9:

  • Original hat: April 15 to May 1, July 19 to July 31
  • Hoenn hat: May 3 to May 15, August 2 to August 14
  • Sinnoh hat: May 17 to May 29, August 16 to August 28
  • Unova hat: May 31 to June 12, August 30 to September 11
  • Kalos hat: June 14 to June 26, September 13 to September 25
  • Alola hat: June 28 to July 17, September 27 to October 9

All of the Pikachu will know the 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt move, which is a Z-Move that is an upgraded version of Thunderbolt. The special monsters will come with the Pikashunium Z (Satopika-Z) Z-Crystal that lets Pikachu use the move. In addition to wearing different hats, the six varieties of Ash's Pikachu will have different levels and some different moves.

The official website for the film posted promotional videos and a visual earlier this month.

The film will open on July 15.

The film's plot tells the story of how Ash (Satoshi) and Pikachu came to know each other. Pikachu was not cooperative toward Ash, but Ash only wanted to be friends with Pikachu. On the day they set out from Pallet Town (Masara Town), both of them saw a Ho-oh flying and made a vow to someday go and meet it.

Satoshi Tajiri is credited with the original work. Pokémon movie director Kunihiko Yuyama is directing the film.

"Pokémon! Kimi ni Kimeta!" is the title of the Pokémon anime's first episode from 1997.
