    A lot of Pokémon fans have warm, fuzzy memories related to walking into a theater to see their favorite Pocket Monsters on the big screen. The Pokémon Company is looking to tap into those warm fuzzies with its next film, which is actually a computer generated "reimagining" of the original Pokémon movie from 1999. 

    Pokémon the First Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back took the cast from the insanely-popular TV cartoon and detailed their first encounter with the psychically-charged Mewtwo. The CG reimagining Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution is set to release in Japan on July 12, but we're still waiting for news on an English translation.
