But now the struggle the film is over, as Pokemon: The Power of Us is now available for rent or purchase on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Prime Video.

Pokemon: The Power of Us (released in Japan under the title of Everyone's Story) and Fathom Events hosted a limited run of the movie on November 14, 26, 28, with the film's final screening taking place on December 1. Fans also had a brief second chance, much like Pokemon: I Choose You had when it first released, to see The Power of Us when it made its TV debut on Disney XD on December 8. But now fans can see the film as many times as they want from the comfort of their own homes.
Pokemon: The Power of Us is officially described as such, "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?"
If you're itching for more Pokemon, the first five seasons of the anime series will soon resume its special holiday marathon on Twitch for a special holiday marathon. Beginning on Thanksgiving Day and running until December 3, the marathon has taken a short break until Christmas Eve, when it will resume until the end of the year. You can find out more details and potentially check out the marathon for yourself at the link here.
