    Get ready for a nostalgia trip, because Pokemon: The First Movie is headed back to cinemas on October 29th and November 1st. To celebrate the series' 20th anniversary, select Cinemark theaters will be showing the movie at over 200 locations on the aforementioned two dates. The short animation Pikachu's Vacation will also be shown before the movie. You can buy presale tickets right now, on Cinemark's website, which cost $5.

    Wow, I can't believe it's been 17 years. I remember going to see this with some friends from highschool. It was also the first DVD I ever bought.

    Much as I'd like to see a childhood classic (I was like 10 or 11 when gen 1 came out), I don't think I'll be making an hour or two hour drive to do that, sadly (the closest theatres showing it are that far away :/ ). Still good to hear that they're showing it again though.

    Eh, i own the actual vhs tape with rare mew card, i'm not paying to see it again if i don't have to especially if is not even in HD or anything special. They also showed tie movie on twitch earlier this year during pokemon 20 year weekend celebration marathon. No one sees sega showing any sonic videos for the 25 anniversary, Nintendo riding that pokemon hype train for all is worth, meanwhile sega trying to finally make fans happy about a sonic game again, konami ruining other people franchise, and capcom still not announce mega man game, and don't let me get started on square enix.

    Need i say more? Or should i just lock myself outside the doorway? Someone save video games, incoming repeat of videogames crash 1983 in 2018 The 35 year anniversary is coming. :ninja:

    Somwhere you can never find.
    If only this also contained the beginning cut content that was Japanese only, it would be nice to finally see the parts which gave mewtwo more characterization.

    Admittedly it's cool to see this in cinemas again, but damn I'm getting tired of companies playing the nostalgia card all the time.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    this is really cool, was this any of the zapdos movie or the mewtwo one?
    i pretty much rather they air the first series ever often than the new ones..
    I would love to watch pokemon cartoon series but i am so sick of ash and team rocket... specially team rocket, they still use the first designs which don't suit the style of the other characters, they look "offset"
    but ash come on, i am so sick of him... would love some new character either from the game or a new one as the main protagonist... it would be cool if serena would be the protagonist of the xyZ series...
