Viz Media has confirmed the home video release of Pokémon The Movie: I Choose You! will release in North America on Tuesday, February 13th. The 20th Pokémon movie was previously screened in US theaters last November via Fathom Events, and now comes to DVD and Blu-Ray next week.

As far as content, the home video is a spartan package, with only 2.0 or 5.1 audio in English only, the trailer, and subtitles. This comes in contrast with the Japanese home video releases last December. Of particular note, the film’s Perfect Limited Edition Blu-Ray, which included an HD remaster of the show’s first episode from 1997, creditless opening and ending themes, artwork galleries, and more.

Pokémon The Movie: I Choose You! is the 20th overall Pokémon movie, acting as a retelling of Ash and Pikachu’s early adventures in Kanto. The upcoming 21st movie, releasing in Japan this July, will continue the story of the 20th movie while sporting a new art style divorced from all previous Pokémon movies. Both the DVD and Blu-Ray of I Choose You! can be preordered on Amazon.
