The film has been directed by Kunihiko YUYAMA, who’s been implied in the development of all Pokémon movies. To celebrate the 20th Pokémon feature film, he has decided to tell the story as he really wished to see it on screen.

A new adventure, new friends, and the discovery of never-before-seen Pokémon: the 20th Pokémon film has arrived, and all Pokémon fans will be delighted about it!

Original version, French subtitles



Ash Ketchum, from Pallet Town, is 10 years old today, which means he’s now old enough to become a Pokémon Trainer. Ash dreams big about the adventures he will experience after receiving his first Pokémon from Professor Oak... Yet, on the morning of his birthday, he sleeps in and is late at the Professor’s laboratory. Unfortunately, almost all the Pokémon are already gone. The only one left is Pikachu, and he doesn’t seem to like Ash much. ("You don’t like me?" Ash asks. "I like you a lot!") But the bond between the two will get stronger and stronger, and, on the first day of their journey, they see the Legendary Pokémon Ho-Oh fly over them and they find one of its feathers. Then Ash and Pikachu promise each other: "Someday, we will set on a journey to find this Pokémon!"

In their journey to achieve Ash’s dream of becoming a Pokémon Master, he meets other Trainers, Souji and Makoto, and Ash hears for the first time about Ho-Oh’s legend: "The rainbow feather will show you the way to Ho-Oh, and the one to follow it will become the Hero of the Legend." Followed closely by the Mythical Pokémon Marshadow, Ash goes to Mount Tensei to fight his powerful rival. Will Ash and Pikachu reach the top of the mountain and honor the promise they made when starting their journey? The adventure only begins!

The event will be finishing after the festival closing hour, thus another exit will be set up in the Yuzu stage hall. Attention, after 6.00 pm, you won’t be allowed to go back into the festival.
