    Surprising less moldy and trite than the last two.

    Watching a Pokemon movie is like drowning in a sea of cute.
  3. A fairly straightforward, if preachy, tale about environmentalism.

    Supposedly, Pokemon can't be killed, but Pokemon 4Ever practically assures that the pocket monster movie franchise is nearly ready to keel over.

    Why the Pokémon fad hasn't died off yet is one of the great mysteries of the universe, right up there with the Pyramids of Gaza and the white stuff in Twinkies.
  6. There isn't much to Pokémon 4Ever.
  7. At best this is a film for the under-7 crowd. But it would be better to wait for the video. And a very rainy day.

    This one has a more engaging story compared to the 2nd one, and for the series standards, that is actually saying something.

    Big movie with big dreams including big boss battles that appeal to small children. What a waste...

    Kids and fans are sure to be entertained, but the rest of us just sit there uncomfortably. It has the same concept as the other films in theKids and fans are sure to be entertained, but the rest of us just sit there uncomfortably. It has the same concept as the other films in the series so you feel a sense of repeat which adds up in the end, unfortunately for the worse. Expand
