Remake of the first Pokémon film is released today

Starting today, Pokémon is going back to the beginning of the cinema because it's official Pokémon Day. With Netflix you can relive the first adventure of Ash and Pikachu.

Not only in Pokémon GO there is a lot going on for Pokémon Day on February 27 (you can find out everything about the event week in the article below). The popular franchise is now also celebrated on Netflix.

The first Pokémon film celebrated its premiere over 20 years ago. The new edition of "Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back" has the additional title "Evolution" and that probably means the style of the remake. While the original from 1998 was created in the classic anime drawing style, the remake was completely recreated in CGI, However, the story has remained the same.

It remains to be seen whether the new style will be well received by everyone. Have a few handkerchiefs ready for the end anyway – it definitely rained in the cinema back then.
