    the only reason this thing gets a one, is because i had some fun whacking off to misty in the theater.

    I love Pokemon a lot, but I'm not very fond of it's movies (the first one was the best). The dub is pretty terrible, and there are one-liners abund. While this movie will mainly entertain younger audiences, the message is loud and clear: only watch this if you're a die-hard fan.

    Absolutely horrible. I might go so far as to call it "borderline unwatchable".

    The first was okay, second horrible, third putrid and the 5th was enjoyable. When it comes to this one i just want to die.

    The preachy, witless and horribly dubbed fourth movie is no better than the others, and it still feels like utter garbage in comparison to Spirited Away.

    i love pokemon but i'll admit this movie sucks. it's animation is a severe downgrade, it's plot holes are gaping , it's villain is even worse which is doubly bad considering Dan Green is doing the voice and i'm surprised that only Il Neige review is the only one to point out it's really ripping off Princess Mononoke a lot. i did like some of the characters and the plot twist at the end isi love pokemon but i'll admit this movie sucks. it's animation is a severe downgrade, it's plot holes are gaping , it's villain is even worse which is doubly bad considering Dan Green is doing the voice and i'm surprised that only Il Neige review is the only one to point out it's really ripping off Princess Mononoke a lot. i did like some of the characters and the plot twist at the end is good but i now know thanks that Suede and Linkara that it's only in the film the way it is because of pointless extra scenes added by 4kids so my intelligence feels insulted Expand

    Surprising less moldy and trite than the last two.
  2. A fairly straightforward, if preachy, tale about environmentalism.

    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.
