Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us (Gekijōban Pocket Monster: Minna no Monogatari), the 21st film in the Pokémon franchise, is now available for rent or digital purchase on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Prime Video in some regions.

The film had a release through Fathom Events in the United States from November 24 through December 3 and earned US$789,170 at the box office.

The Pokémon Company describes the film:

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?

The film premiered in theaters in Japan on July 13 and opened at #2 at the Japanese box office.
