The mood is set with Louis Armstrong’s classic “What a Wonderful World”. The trailer features some new shots of the colorful pocket monsters being cute in a beautifully shot forest scene. We also get new peeks into what other Pokemon we’ll be seeing as well as the sounds for Psyduck and Charmanders.

There is certainly a lot of information to sift through throughout the trailer. The ending of the trailer, though, is the kicker. We’re left with an emotional Pikachu (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) as he tells a tearful Tim that if his Dad was there he’d “hug so hard, your bones would pop.”
