Oh no! It looks like we will be seeing “Evil Ash” once again, as the company releases two new teaser clips of “Pokemon The Movie: Hoopa and the Clash of Ages.” Will Ash be able to overcome his evil self this time? Read on to learn more about this scoop.
The new teaser trailers for the upcoming “Pokemon The Movie: Hoopa and the Clash of Ages” have been released and fans were quite shocked to see a scary-looking Ash in the almost two-minute long clip.
Ash bears red, glowing eyes, clenched teeth with a purple vibe surrounding him, making fans see the resemblance from a previous Pokemon episode wherein an “Evil Ash” (“Yami Satoshi” in Japanese) surfaced. Kotaku cited that one user named @Owen42533 noted the similarities between the scary Ash in the 2015 “Pokemon” movie and that of the possessed ash from an episode titled, “Battling the Enemy Within.”
If Ash will go evil once again, this will mark the second time for Ash to turn from a Pokemon-lover and protector to an evil Pokemon collector. Why was Ash possessed in the film?
According to the Pokemon Company, the “Pokemon” movie will revolve around Ash, Pikachu, and the rest of the gang, as they journey across the deserted city by the sea. They chance upon a mythical Pokemon named Hoopa, who has the ability to summon whatever it wants – be it things, people, or Pokemon with the use of its rings.
Ash and the rest of the team discover that there was once a brave hero who stopped a rampage caused by a Pokemon long ago, but it looks like the danger has come back. Ash, Pikachu, and the gang try to help Hoopa overcome the darkness within. Aww, who would imagine such a cute and mythical Pokemon would have some evilness hidden inside?
As it turns out, Hoopa may have had something to do with Ash’s possession. As seen on the clip, Ash saves Hoopa from falling, but Ash emerges with all those scary, purplish-black vibes around him. Does this mean Ash needs to battle the darkness within him?
The “Pikachu to Pokemon Ongakutai” (Pikachu and the Pokemon Music Band) will also air prior to the 70-minute animated film, Anime News Network reported.
“Pokemon The Movie: Hoopa and the Clash of Ages” will air on July 18 in Japan. No release date has been announced yet for the U.S. and other countries.
