The film has been described by the Pokémon Company as:
Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us tells the story of Ash and Pikachu as they journey to a small seaside town filled with a diverse set of characters, including a young athlete, a compulsive liar, a shy researcher, a bitter old woman, and a little girl with a big secret.
Every year, the townspeople gather to celebrate the Legendary Pokémon Lugia, who brings the wind that saved the town from destruction many years ago. The festival is a time for celebration, with a Pokémon Catching Race and a ceremonial flame burning brightly to summon Lugia. But when a series of incidents threatens not just the festival, but all the people and Pokémon who call the town home, it’s going to take more than just Ash and Pikachu to save the day. Will these people be able to put aside their differences and work together to rescue their town? Or will it all end in destruction?
The Power of Us served as the animated debut of a new Mythical Pokémon named Zeraora. The plot is set during the annual Wind Festival at Frau City, which the Legendary Pokémon Lugia has blessed.
Kunihiko Yuyama served as an animation supervisor. He directed many of the earlier Pokémon films, including last year’s Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! The script was written by Eiji Umehara and Aya Takaha. The film was directed by Tetsuo Yajima who was an assistant director for I Choose You!
