As teased in the trailer, Mewtwo alongside with Mew flying off above the clouds,  slowly soaring through the sky. While the trailer has mostly consisted of letters and numbers, the small scene of Mewtwo and Mew is enough to imply that the movie will be a fully CGI-animated film.

According to Eurogamer, Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution is original scripted by Takeshi Shudo, who passed away in 2010. Shudo, for those who don't already know, was the screenwriter for the first three Pokémon films and numerous Pokémon TV series episodes.

The movie is set to release in India on July 12, 2019, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the original film's Western release, which was November 6, 1999.

This release can also be placed at the same time as the upcoming all-new Nintendo Switch Pokémon RPG games which scheduled for launch at the end of this year.
