Trivia Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!

The film retells Ash and Pikachu's meeting to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Pokémon anime. Although 'Pokémon' is a series that internationally renews it's theme song style regularly with new singers, fans in the Netherlands have successfully battled for the return of singer Herman van Doorn multiple times in the performance of the songs in the Dutch dubbing of the Pokémon series and movies. It is currently unknown whether The Pokémon Company will allow his return (September 2017). Ash's hat in the movie appears to be a mix of his Kanto/Johto hat and Alola hat.
