Movie Special: I'm Not Pikachu! (Japanese: 映画公開記念'98 ピカチュウじゃないってば! Movie Premiere Special '98: I'm not Pikachu!) is written by Junko Wada and illustrated by Toshinao Aoki. It is a special tie-in to the first movie and part of the Pokémon Tales series. This book has 18 pages in total.


A boy goes to see Pokémon: The First Movie, but for some strange reason when he leaves the cinema, he finds that he had transformed into a Pikachu (still wearing his red baseball cap). He tries to escape the fans, and among doing so, he finds a girl who similarly transformed into Mew, and another boy into Mewtwo.


Based on the forthcoming Pokémon movie, this special edition of Pokémon Tales stars the reader! Changing from human to Pokémon - fuzzy, electric, and two feet tall - is simple enough, but how about changing back? The rare Pokémon Mew and Mewtwo join in the fun.
