Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution Debuts Exclusively On Netflix Next Month
Every year, The Pokémon Company likes to celebrate Pokémon Day, the anniversary of the Japanese release of the first Pokémon games, with some news or a special release. Last year, we got the official reveals of Pokémon Sword & Shield, and while we don't know if we should anticipate anything in line with that magnitude this year, The Pokémon Company has announced one of the things happening: the Netflix release of the computer-animated re-imagining of 1998's Pokémon: The First Movie – Mewtwo Strikes Back.
Since Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution takes place during the early events of the anime, it sees the return of several fan-favorite characters from the original run including Brock, Misty, and Team Rocket. Ash and his friends receive a mysterious invitation to visit a powerful Pokémon trainer. Little do they know, that powerful trainer is Mewtwo, perhaps the most powerful Pokémon yet discovered.
