    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 the series so you feel a sense of repeat which adds up in the end, unfortunately for the worse.

    And THERE it is. Pokemon 4. (Sighs wistfully) Has it already been twenty minutes? Well, on the upside, it'll satisfy the Key Demographic (da Kidz). On the downside...there's no sense yet that Pokemon's pan is flashed. It refuses to die! It just...keeps....going!

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

    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.
