In the New Pokémon Movie, Evil Ash Looks Terrifying

Damn, Ash. Those glowing eyes. Those clinched teeth. You’re scary.

The Pokémon Company released the Japanese trailer for the upcoming feature film Pokémon the Movie: Hoopa and the Clash of Ages. It’s slightly different from the western trailer (here), which doesn’t contain footage of nightmare Ash.

Fans of the possessed Ash from the “ Battling the Enemy Within” episode (clip here) or fans of the “Evil Ash” meme should love this trailer. Oh, and Pokémon fans, too!

Twitter user Owen42533 did a comparison of the the previous incarnation of “Evil Ash” (闇サトシ “Yami Satoshi” in Japanese). Looks like the scary factor has been amped up. Considerably.
