The anime, which premiered in Japan on Wednesday, will hit theaters across the U.S. in 2019, according the Japanese version of The Wall Street Journal.
It’s the first major Pokemon movie to be released outside of Japan.

The movie is slated for release on March 15, 2019, with the release of “Pokemon: The Anime,” which will air on April 16. “
As we continue to expand and deliver our world-class content and experience across our portfolio, the Pokémon brand is the ideal platform for introducing new fans to our animated franchise, and we’re proud to be partnering with Warner Bros.”
