When researchers discover and exploit a fossil of the Mythical Pokémon Mew, they unleash a creation that goes against the very laws of nature: Mewtwo, a Legendary Pokémon intended for use as a tool of destruction. But as Mewtwo becomes aware of its own dubious origin, it begins to resent its human creators and seeks revenge—and Ash, Pikachu, and their friends find themselves at the center of its rampage! With the future of the Pokémon world at stake, will our heroes be able to overcome Mewtwo’s challenge…and will Mewtwo be able to find a new meaning for its life?
Netflix has been busy boosting its lineup to start the year. Apart from the new Pokémon movie, the company is adding 21 animated films from Studio Ghibli. They are also going to debut Locke & Key, a live adaptation of Joe Hill’s award winning comic book of the same name.
