According to what was reported, therefore, the villain of the movie will be Mewtwo, controlled once again by an evil human. The references to the first animated film of the franchise are, therefore, obvious: we'll see, however, as Mewtwo will be on the road to Pikachu, and his human friend.

The host of the annual World Championships of the Pokemon video games and cards in Nashville, the director Rob Letterman has previously had the opportunity to talk about the movie:
“It's a fantastic story, it is an emotion to direct the first live-action of a franchise so great, The Pokemon Company has done a lot of things in these years, just joined this world and I fell in love immediately. I think it was a good idea to do this film, fans will find many of their favorite items,” the words to IGN, with the director which also makes a comparison with the Guardians of the Galaxy “Pikachu is really real, as well as Rocket in Guardians of the Galaxy, seems to be really there and not computer-made. We have people who have worked with the saga Marvel, the other with The Jungle Book or Fantastic Animals. Technically, the visual effects are among the most sophisticated in the world, it is all very realistic.”
The protagonist, of course, the historical face of the franchise, Pikachu, but as we know there will be space in the film for the other Pokemon: “I work closely with The Pokemon Company and Game Freak, all the production team has thought a lot about how to put the most number of Pokemon in the movie, also including the developments, trying not to narrow the field to only the fan favorite. We had only to choose which lent themselves best to the visual effects and the plot”.
