Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! on Teletoon/Télétoon this month

Following a wide theatrical release early last month, the twentieth Pokémon theatrical feature will hit the Canadian small screens. Both the English and French Teletoon feeds will run it as part of their Christmas break schedule. According to TV Passport, the movie will air on Télétoon in Quebec on December 26th at 9:30AM and 4PM. English Canada will get the movie on December 27th at 7AM, 12PM and 6PM. Sandwiched between the screenings are repeat episodes of Pokémon The Series: Sun & Moon which run until 9PM.

Pokémon returns to its earliest memories in the full-length feature film Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! Classic moments with familiar friends and new encounters come together in the 20th Pokémon movie.

When Ash Ketchum oversleeps on his 10th birthday, he ends up with a stubborn Pikachu instead of the first partner Pokémon he wanted! But after a rocky start, Ash and Pikachu become close friends and true partners—and when they catch a rare glimpse of the Legendary Pokémon Ho-Oh in flight, they make plans to seek it out together, guided by the Rainbow Wing it leaves behind.

Trainers Verity and Sorrel join Ash on his journey. Along the way, Ash catches an abandoned Charmander, raises a Pokémon from Caterpie to Butterfree and then releases it to follow its heart, and meets the mysterious Mythical Pokémon Marshadow. When they near their goal, the arrogant Cross—Charmander’s former Trainer—stands in their way! Can Ash and Pikachu defeat this powerful Trainer and reach Ho-Oh as they promised, or will their journey end here?

The film is currently available on digital platforms. Viz Media will release it on DVD and Blu-Ray on February 13, 2018. Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! was released theatrically in Japan on July 15, 2017. After the limited theatrical engagement early last month, the film’s dub premiered on Disney XD in the United States on November 25th.
