    I'm a massive fan of all things Pokémon so I found it really hard to dislike, but if i had to I would say that I didn't like the friendship moral's but I guess that just comes with it being a film targeted at kids.

    The only good Pokemon movie ever made (although I thought the commercials for Pokemon 2000 were cool). I have very fond childhood memories of this movie, and I always watch this movie to relive those good memories.

    Its a good movie and its my favorite of all of the Pokemon movies. I always watch this movie as a kid and it gives me memories of my childhood again.

    First the TV show, then the video games, the playing cards, the books, the clothes, and now the movie -- the dreaded movie.

    It's just a sound-and-light show, linked to the marketing push for Pokemon in general.

    This totally sucks.
