    Nice theory but..July teasers and December teasers have never been dubbed, right?

    Also, I'm sure they are aware of the fact that the West is already getting their own movie in May.

    There's one coming in a couple of weeks, and I wouldn't be surprised if it outgrosses the original Mewtwo movie.

    That could change and Dogasu was talking about the Japanese teaser being watched by western fans.

    They'd be six months apart. Isn't that enough? One will have several stars and a gimmick as a selling point, while the other relies on nostalgia.

    I just hope Ash has Pokemon other than Pikachu (and Charizard).

    Let's also hope there aren't any deus-ex-machina magic tears this time...:cautious:

    I guess, in hindsight, that was some plot armor. But I still cried my eyes out as a kid. :3

    For what I've heard, Ash was only petrified, not killed, in the First Movie, so I guess those tears maybe... rehydrated him or something? It's still stupid, I know, but at least this way, it doesn't sound as "magical".

    We’re talking about a series where there are creatures that breathe fire, spew water, manipulate things with their minds, electrocute things, can freeze stuff and so on.

    Having “magical” tears filled of life isn’t that much distant. I mean, what if those tears were filled with aura, with each Pokémon sharing a bit of their auras? The Lucario movie showed that aura can heal, so maybe that happened.

    I don't really like the sound of the Evolution part. Is Mewtwo suddenly gonna evolve. Mewtwo doesn't really need to evolve.. Its already powerful and it has two Mega Evolutions.

    I think the word "evolution" isn't supposed to be taken too literally.

    I thought it was easier to handwave than Ash's resurrection in Movie 20, which was unrelated to Ho-Oh.

    That said, it would be nice if they removed that scene as "faux death" is a concept that has been rehashed 8 whopping times by now.

    As a hardened hater of those kind of scenes... I find it hard to imagine they'll do a rehash of this movie without a translation of that scene...

    So... what new bells and whistles can Mew and Mewtwo get for the new movie? Maybe a new form? (*sigh* since there's 'evolution' in the title and all that).
    There’s also supposed to be a new Pokemon in LGPE. Could it be related to Mewtwo in some way?
    If so the new Pokemon could end up being an important part of the movie.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the new Pokemon replaced Mew altogether.

    They’re not going to replace Mew. It’s way too popular. A new Mew form on the other hand might be possible...

    Mew is so popular? Compared to what?

    It placed third on the 2016 poll, but if that meant anything this would movie feature Arceus (or Genesect or even Meloetta) instead of Mewtwo. It was a poll for a movie distribution.

    They could squeeze three legendaries into one movie, but my guess is that the new one will have a bigger role than Mew.

    I loved M20, but I really wish they toned down with the nostalgia pandering. Just how long are they going to carry on with the "20th anniversary" excuse? It looks like they're trying to attach "20th anniversary" to every single thing they can find and they'd still find something from Kanto to celebrate the 20 years long past the actual anniversary celebrations - and then sooner or later there's going to be a "but its the 30th anniversary soon", probably from year 26 or 27 and justify the continuation of the Kanto pandering.

    This is just me, but I'd love to see an alternative telling of Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, though. Heck, with all the Kanto pandering for the past several years, I'd be glad with some Lucarios all over the place.

    I'd love it if they released an alternative universe telling of the Rise of Darkrai to go with the Sinnoh Remakes. One can dream...
