Shut up you fucks, you know you love it!
Hey everyone, Ink Heart here with a different kind of journal.
I decided to be a crazy person and watch all of the Pokemon Movies in a span of two weeks, all 16 of them.
Well, I wanted to see if they still held up to todays standards, so do they?
...Errr... Some did, others, no...
I'm not going to review all of them in one journal, no, I'll review them in a short spurt descriptions and by generation.
So today, I'll say my thoughts on the "Original Series" Movies which are Gen 1 and 2, there are five movies in total, so let's get started.
Movie 1: Pokemon The First Movie, Mewtwo Strikes Back:
Already from the title alone, you could tell Nintendo was really confident that there would be more Pokemon movies to come in the future.
I'd say it's pretty arrogant to call your movie "The First Movie" but seeing how “Pokemania” was at it's highest peak at this time and Pokemon was an overnight smash hit, they knew what they were doing.
So the basic plot of this movie, Team Rocket hires explorers to go to South America and hunt for the super rare Pokemon "Mew".
They don't find Mew, but they find a fossilized eyelash of Mew, and took it back to a secret lab where they create a new super powerful genetically engineered man made Pokemon that they dubbed "Mewtwo".
Mewtwo, being a Psychic Pokemon realizes that it's creators don't really care of him and see him as only a tool, upset and rightfully so, Mewtwo destroys the whole lab and assumingly kills everyone.
Wow, what a way to introduce a badass Pokemon by giving him a death count.
Giovanni then tells Mewtwo he can help him to better control his powers by putting Mewtwo in a power armored like suit to control his psychic powers with more ease.
We then get a montage that actually shows Gary Oak battling against Mewtwo with his Arcanine and Rydon, proving that this movie has some continuity with the anime; I believe the anime references the movie as well as Jesse and James see Mewtwo escaping Giovanni’s hideout with a clip directly from the movie itself.
Mewtwo then escapes Giovanni because he doesn't want to be used a slave to humans and plans to wipeout human and Pokemon kind.
Sometime later, we see our heroes chilling out as Brock make food for the crew.
A random punk trainer challenges Ash as the opening credits play; by the way, the trainer punk actually calls out some Gen 2 Pokemon, like Donphan and Granbull; which were new at the time seeing how Gold and Silver wouldn’t come out for another year after this movie.
After winning a Dragonite hands Ash and gang a letter by Mewtwo challenging a bunch of trainers to come and face against the "world strongest trainer" at his private island, New Island; not one to give up a challenge, Ash goes to the island looking of a fight, despite the raging storm overhead...
At the lair, Mewtwo offs the trainer's Pokemon left and right like the god he is, telling the trainers that their Pokemon are weak and useless.
He then captures their Pokemon in his own Pokeballs called "Clone Balls" and takes them for cloning.
Mewtwo then turns his clone army on the trainers as they start to fight each other to a REALLY corny song called "Brother my Brother" playing in the background.
This is one of my two major problems with the movie, we get this sappy ass song playing as Pokemon beat the shit out of each other, the song doesn't find the situation at all…
Seriously, that’d be like trying to play “Singing in the Rain” while you beat up a helpless old couple in their home.
...Wait… Did I reference A Clockwork Orange…?
Anyway, as corny as the song if, I feel it’d been better used in the next scene when the Pokemon have already beaten each other up to the point of exhaustion and can’t fight anymore.
Also, there is a hidden message of “Pokemon are friends! Not weapons, and we shouldn’t have them fright to the very death!”
And when I said “hidden message” I mean they shove it in your face without any stability; sadly this was something A LOT of children movies in the 90’s did this…
That, and teaching kids not to fight with their Pokemon in a game that teaches you that making your Pokemon fight solves EVERY little fucking problem in game, it’s kinda not the best thing to teach; makes you sound like a hypocrite.
Now for the other problem in this movie, the ending…
Yes, you guys know what I’m talking about; as Mew and Mewtwo duke it out, Ash decides to be an idiot and run in between the two as they shoot psycho energy at each other, thus him getting hit and turning into stone.
This is supposed to be a sad moment, but the bullshit Desu Ex Machina power of “Pokemon Tears” brings Ash back to life and kind nullifies the sadness.
Basically putting on no consequences for his actions.
Granted, that lady with a spanish sounding accent told the story about the sea is made up of some Pokemon Tears or some bullshit like that, but that’s a LONG stretch to go for that connection...
Mewtwo realizes the errors of his ways and takes his clones away to live somewhere else in peace and wipes everyone’s memories of his existence.
My thoughts on the movie?
It hasn’t aged too terribly well, but as the first Pokemon Movie, it was actually quite good, as it introduced the most popular and beloved legendary Pokemon, Mewtwo.
He was pretty much the original “God” of Pokemon back in the day, long before Arceus was even a thing.
And I’m not saying that because it’s my favorite legendary and my nostalgia fanboyism is taking ahold of me, no, it’s because you can feel sorry for him.
I’ll admit, I’m a sucker for the sci-fi story where “The “experiment” escapes it’s Masters and goes for revenge” storyline.
This popularity would prove true as Mewtwo would appear in other Nintendo games like Super Smash Bros. Melee, Pokemon spinoffs, TV special episodes, and later movies.
Oh and this movie introduced Mew as well, I don’t like Mew as much as Mewtwo, but Mew is pretty cute, and considering he can learn every single move in the games, he is like the “Jesus” of the Pokemon world, as Mew has the DNA of every existing Pokemon; both discovered and yet to be discovered.
To be fair, I don’t care much for the “cuter” legendaries, I like my legendaries to look intimidating, or regal.
However, unlike Mewtwo, who is easier to catch in other games, most of the time you need a goddamned event code to even think about grabbing a Mew…
I fucking hate event only Pokemon…
Or you can do what I did to get Mew and cheat, seeing how that was the only “legit” way to get it...
Also, the music in this movie is grand, the “Mewtwo Theme Suite” is a great piece that really builds his evilness in a nutshell, it's a damn shame that this piece of music wasn’t ever really used outside the anime or the anime movies, because that song would of been great in Super Smash Bros.
A good movie, and a classic, worth the watch.
Also quick fun fact, in the original Japanese dub of this movie, the real reason Mew came to stop Mewtwo wasn’t because he told Mewtwo that Clone Pokemon and naturally born Pokemon are perfectly the same, and can live together in harmony.
No… The “real reason” was because Mew said “Clone Pokemon are abominations and should be eradicated, including you too Mewtwo!”
...Yeah… Mew isn’t so cute anymore now is he…?
Movie 2: Pokemon The Movie 2,000: The Power of One:
Hey guys, remember when everything and anything had to put “2,000” at the end of it’s title to show it was new and hip in the next millennia?
...God I’m glad that died off quickly…
This is the second Pokemon Movie, this one has moved into Gen 2; well not really…
This movie takes place in the “Orange Islands” the filler arc of the anime before Johto Journeys fully began, so, think of this as Gen 1.5.
This also means this movie doesn’t feature Brock as he was replaced by Tracey Sketchit, who is very bland and boring.
All he does is draw Pokemon, and no, not as in sexy furry pin-up, as in quick sketches in his sketch pad, that’s it…
As for why Brock was replaced?
Well, black people didn’t take the Pokemon, Jynx all too well as they thought it looked like she was in “black face”, she was later changed in Gen 2 to have purple skin rather than pure black.
And seeing how Brock had darker skin, they wrote Brock out of the series for a little while out of fear of racist backlash, but he came back rather quickly as people really loved Brock and didn’t care much for Tracey.
So on to the main plot, Ash and the gang go and visit Shamouti Island, which is the cultural center point of the Orange Islands.
Apparently they arrived just in time to celebrate their festival in honor of the “Choose One” who’d save the world if a certain Legendary Pokemon goes apeshit.
There is also a subplot with the villain of the movie (who I didn’t know was actually named in this movie…) named Lawrence the 3rd, he is a “collector” and wants to capture the three legendary birds, Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos by using his giant flying zeppelin.
He came to catch them in order to awaken Lugia with all of the chaos on the island.
After causing some damage, Lugia is awakened, and rightfully pissed off as he doesn’t like those birdy fuckheads disturbing his sleep.
Sometime later, Professor Ivy tells Professor Oak that Pokemon start acting strange and the weather is getting rough as a major storm that somehow covers all of Kanto and the Orange Islands is making things awful.
The island girl, Melody, tells that everything that’s happening is all told in the ancient legend about the hero who will save them.
I don’t remember most of the legend, but the last line “The world will turn to Ash” is stating that Ash, will save the world… Because main character syndrome…
So now, Ash needs to go to the islands of Fire, Ice, and Lightning, to get the elemental orbs, and take them to the central island to calm down Lugia and hopefully stop the storm; while dodging the four raging legendaries at the same time.
At this point I want to begin attention of one thing, this movie really goes into; the Ash and Misty shipping.
I don’t know why this started in the first place, but it’s really heavily implied that Misty had some kind of feelings for Ash.
Now the anime’s North American/European soundtrack does have a song called “Misty’s Song” on the album where she sings her feelings for Ash but is too afraid to tell him how she really feels.
So this isn’t new, but again, Melody does fish this info out of Misty by saying “I mean, he is your boyfriend right?” as Misty smirks at her with a slight nod.
Also, Team Rocket is quite heroic in this movie, granted, they aren’t really “villainous” in the first place, but they help out Ash and the crew a lot, especially after Melody’s ship gets wrecked, they only have a little rubber raft, but it’s better than nothing.
After some running back and forth, Ash gets all of the orbs, places them on the central island, but Lawrence the 3rd is like “fuck that shit!” and tries to capture Lugia with his electro triangle gate… net thingys....
The birds try to stop this from going down, but the zeppelin is too strong for even their combined attacks, but not strong enough for Lugia’s Hyper Beam, as he fires it and blows up the zeppelin as Lugia is freed, but falls to the bottom of the ocean, his body badly damaged from the trap.
With the orbs, placed, Melody play’s “Lugia’s Song” on her ocarina, which is an amazing song that just builds up and becomes more robust as it continues for a good four minutes.
Lugia is restore to his glory, the storm ends and peace is restored as Ash and the gang meet up with Delia Ketchum and Professor Oak all relieved to know they all made it out alive.
My thoughts on this movie?
I love this movie, out of all of the first five Pokemon movies, I saw this on the most, probably because I owned this on VHS and watched it quite often.
The one thing I like about this movie is how they treat Ash, even though he is the “Chosen One” he does start to crack a little bit for all of the pressure that eventually leads for him to doubt in himself, and who wouldn’t honestly.
That damn stone tablet is like “Hey kid, save the fucking world! Only you can prevent forest fires! ...I mean save us all.”
Of course his friends like Misty, Tracey, Melody, and even Team Rocket, have his back and help him accomplish his goal.
This made everyone in the movie feel useful and a part of the team as they all save the day, which is something the later movies will neglect…
And to be fair, Ash may have been the only one who could pull out the legendary elemental orbs, but it was Melody with her ocarina that truly saved the day.
Also, the music again, wonderful, this probably has my favorite score out of all of the Pokemon Movies, Lugia’s Song by itself should of gotten an award of some kind because it’s just a amazing piece of music.
Seriously, go listen to “Lugia’s Song” and the vocal single off of the Pokemon 2,000 album, “The Power of One” both great songs.
Watch this one for sure!
Movie 3: Pokemon 3: The Spell of the Unown:
Okay, I swear, this time we are in Gen 2 no more filler, because one of the Legendary Beasts, Entei is the focus of this story, as well as the Unown…
Ugh… The Unown, we’ll get back to these disappointing Pokemon in a moment…
So main plot, in a mansion in the Johto town of Greenfield, there is a well-known researcher name Spencer Hale who is reading a story about Entei to his daughter Molly.
They play around and have fun until being interrupted by an email from Spencer’s assistance Scyler who said “Yo, I found some rad shit in the desert!” Spencer then goes to check out said rad shit and ends up disappearing into another dimension via portal.
Scyler returns to Greenfield to tell the mansion’s butler about Mr. Hale’s fate.
Molly overhears this and doesn’t take it well and locks herself in her father’s bedroom.
Depressed, she starts to play with his random swag and finds a little dusty box containing tiles with odd letters on them and starts to play Scrabble by spelling out “papa, mama, and me”.
Molly unknowing summons the Unown Pokemon as the titles begin to glow.
The Unown then use their powers to turn the mansion into an odd crystal like castle, Molly is happy to play with them, but looks at the storybook, sees Entei, and begins to again lament over her father.
Fullining Molly’s wish, the Unown summon Entei for Molly as she is overjoyed and calls him “papa”.
Elsewhere Ash and the gang derp about battling trainers and sitting down for some lauch.
They are going to do this A LOT in the beginning parts of the movie, so get use to it now...
Continuing onward Ash and company spot a TV crew covering the odd “Crystal Manor” that suddenly popped up early today, as they think is has something to do with Professor Hale’s recent disappearance.
Back in Pallet Town, Delia Ketchum sees the TV story and looks at a picture of her, Ash, Spencer, and Prof. Oak, she then calls Oak saying she is worried about Spencer and Molly and the both of them meet up to see what’s wrong.
How they got all the way from Pallet Town to Johto I don’t know, yes Kanto and Johto are neighboring regions but still, they got there pretty quick...
At the mansion, Molly sees Delia and Prof. Oak, and tells Entei she wants a “mama”, so Entei runs out in the fields and kidnaps Delia, Ash is not thrilled about this at all.
Ash decides to break into the mansion to rescue his mom with Brock and Misty close behind him like always as they manage to sneak past Entei without him noticing.
While they climb through the mansion, at this point I must give it up to the movie on finding very unique ways for Ash, Misty, and Brock to use their Pokemon’s moves to traverse their way inside. Like Cyndaquil using flamethrower to open up a hole, Starmie and Staryu using Water Gun to keep said hole opened, and have them ride through the water jetstream to get further inside.
Eventually, Molly comes down herself to challenge our three heroes via Pokemon battle.
Brock and Misty say behind to let Ash to keep climbing up the tower.
As she battles, Molly starts to visible age and gets older thanks to the Unown’s power, going from a 7 year old, to a 12 old old fighting Brock, and a 15 or 16 year old while fighting Misty.
Suddenly the Unown lose control of their power and go nuts as the mansion dematerializes from the inside out
Everyone meets up at the center to stop the Unown, Entei uses his fire to blast a hole in the Unown’s barrier but it doesn’t work, he needs the help of Ash’s Pikachu and Charizard to blast it open, with the combine effort and Molly’s cheering, they destroy the barrier and the Unown.
Entei has to go because his planet needs him and tells Molly that everything that happened was apart of her dreams, as he turns to green mist as Molly starts to cry.
As the credits roll we see the Spencer Hale is okay, and so is Mrs. Hale, as they reunite with Molly for a happy ending.
My thoughts on this movie?
To be honest, out of all of these five movies, I’ve seen this one the least amount of times, so I really don’t remember this one as much as the others.
Hell, they rarely played this one on Cartoon Network back in the day, I don’t think this was one of the more popular ones folks.
The one problem I have with this movie is how they “hype up” the Unown like they were “TEH BEZT POKERMANS EVHER!”, when in reality, they are a useless Pokemon that can only learn one move… Hidden Power… That’s it…
What made them cool?
They are a gimmick for one, the Unown spell out the english alphabet from A to Z with an added question mark and explanation mark for later generations. and if you caught them, you could spell out words like “Mom”, “Dad”, or “Fuckit” like I did.
The only thing that made the Unown become slightly more “infamous” when their gimmick actually helped them as of recently in their appearances in Pokemon Creepypastas stories, like “Lost/Hidden Silver”, “Snow on Mt. Silver”, and “Strangled Red” as they spell out creepy shit like “HeDied”, “Leave”, “WhoAreYouKid”, and, “GoAway”.
As for Entei, he was pretty cool, as he was voiced by the mighty Dan Green, one of the better 4kids voice actors.
He big booming voice lends well to Entei’s majestic presents.
However, I never really cared too much about Entei, I always like Suicune better, which is odd for me, seeing how Fire Types are my favorite type, but whatever.
A small thing I really liked was that this movie gave a bit of backstory on Ash’s mother, Delia Ketchum, granted it’s not a lot and she is pretty much only used as a plot device, but hey, it’s something dammit.
This one isn’t as cool as the first or second movie, but a decent watch nevertheless.
Movie 4: Pokemon 4ever: Celebi: Voice of the Forest:
Hey guys, have you even watched an anime movie called Princess Mononoke?
If yes, then you’ve already seen a much better version of this movie, if no, then you should go watch it, because it’s loads better than this one…
Plot dump time.
Roughly 40 years ago, a young trainer named Sam is traveling through the woods.
Sammy runs into a young lady named Towa who gives him some baked bread with berries inside and give Sam a warning that a powerful and rare Pokemon lives in the forest.
Sammy thanks her and goes deeper into the forest, way to following a warning kid...
Elsewhere in the forest Celebi is being cashed by a Scyther and a Houndoom who belong to a Pokemon Hunter trying to catch her.
Sammy, Celebi, and the Hunter eventually all meetup, Sammy then tries his best protects the Celebi from the Hunter and his Pokemon.
Wanting to getaway and not let Sammy get anymore hurt than he already is, Celebi uses her powers to teleport herself and Sammy into the future, leaving the Hunter confused and frustrated.
That’s right, we are dealing with Time Travel in this story!
We cut to present time here the same Pokemon Hunter (now retired) is getting harassed by a Team Rocket member named the “Iron-Masked Marauder” as he knows the old hunter was the last person to see Celebi in the forest.
Putting his past behind him, he refuses to tell Ironmask; he then uses a Dark Ball on one of the poachers’ Pokemon, this being a Tyranitar.
He then uses “Dark” Tyranitar to wreck the old poachers’ stuff and forces him to tell him everything about Celebi.
We then cut to Misty and Brock waiting for Ash to get off the ferry they came in on and get into some battles as the opening credits roll.
Pikachu spots a Suicune off in the distance as they get to their next location, they call Prof. Oak who informs them that the Pokemon they saw was a Suicune.
They continue forth and end up in the same place that Sammy once was as they meet Towa, now an old lady with a granddaughter named Diana.
Towa warns Ash that the forest in dangerous, but he ignores her and starts off deeper in the forest… Much like Sammy did...
As soon as they get deep into the forest, the trees begin to glow and turn blue, suddenly, Sammy and Celebi reappear in the “future” or Ash’s “present time”.
Yeah… This time travel thing is going to get weird near the end…
Sammy is unconscious, worried, the group drags him back to Towa’s home.
After Sammy and Ash almost beat each other up as Sammy tries to find Celebi, Towa sees Sammy and remembers him from when she was younger, and begins to tell everyone that he disappeared over 40 years ago.
She kept his sketchbook and returns it back to him, to let him know just how long he has been gone.
Sammy promises to find Celebi and return back to his time, as Ash, Misty, and Brock, help him to do so.
The crew passes by some of the wreckage caused by Ironmask, they then stumble across Celebi, who they try to help but she doesn’t want to be helped.
Sammy is able to soothe Celebi and have her join the party.
...And this is where the movie decides to stop…
You see, the movie has a rather annoying trope that begins in this movie, “Having the Legendary Pokemon acting cute for FAR too long”
Granted the Iron-Masked Marauder does cause some trouble, but he isn’t a really memorable foe.
No, mainly the next scenes just contain Celebi acting cute by eating berries, as Ash and Sammy start to bond with each other.
This part of the movie is where I start to fall asleep…
I’m gonna skip ahead to something interesting happening…
Ahh, here we go.
So the Iron-Masked Marauder finally captures Celebi in a Dark Ball, turning her into a Dark Pokemon who is a mindless uncontrollable monster, hellbent on destroying the forest with a bad CG evil Celebi monster thing made completely out of vines.
Yeah, the CG in this movie doesn’t blend well with the 2D animation at all...
As the gang trys everything to stop Celebi, nothing has worked so far, the Celebi monster fires a dark purple beam at Ash and Sammy, but they are saved by Suicune.
Suicune picks up Ash and Sammy on it’s back to help them find an opening to get them to free Celebi.
Ironmask sends out Tyranitar to fuck up Suicune, but it let’s out a Bubble Beam to knock out Tyranitar.
Suicune leads Ash and Sammy up to the “heart” of the monster to save Celebi, they have difficulties in trying to remind her of her sweet and kinder nature, it works as Celebi regains her memories and breaks free from her brainwashing.
However, Celebi is very weak and looks withered like a dying plant.
They place her in the water, but she doesn’t recover, as things look grim, Suicune has the ability to purify the water and make it clean enough again to recover Celebi.
After the cleansing, Celebi is restored to her former glory and now has enough energy to transport herself and Sammy back to the past.
The heroes have their sappy tearful goodbyes as Ash says to Sammy “Even through the gates of time, we’ll always be friends Sammy!”
Back in town the group calls Prof, Oak again to tell him that they got to meet Suicune; Prof, Oak then notices Ash looking rather glum as he tells Oak about Sammy and that he misses him.
Oak smiles and says “Don’t worry Ash, I’m sure wherever Sammy is, he’ll always remember his very best friend.”
As the final scene of the movie shows a sketchbook with a sketch of Pikachu and Celebi…
Hmmm… I guess that means…
Oh my god, Sammy is Prof. Oak from the past!
DUN DUN DUUUUNNNNNN!
My thoughts on the movie?
I didn’t really like it that much...
Not only because Celebi acts too cute for no reason, but a bigger problem.
What is that you ask?
Oh, I don’t know, other than the fact this movie has MAJOR plot holes and the fact that time-traveling always fucks something up in a story if you don’t wrap up the loose ends!
For one, Prof. Oak is a Timelord, seriously, it now makes sense on how he knows so much about Pokemon, he befriended Celebi, uses her to travel back and forth to learn everything he can about Pokemon.
By Sammy Oak doing this, this creates the “Grandfather Paradox” as when Oak first met Ash, he already would have known him, so when he gave Ash his Pikachu, it was on purpose because in order for the event in the 4th movie to happen he’d have to do this or else it’d be a paradox and…
Oh dear, I think I’ve gone cross eyed...
But I guess we can just say that a side effect of time travel is alzheimers as Oak can’t remember his grandson’s name…
I won’t bash on this movie too much, I went over the fact that Sammy has “Prototype Pokeballs” which are steampunky looking, kinda a neat detail to know they had Pokeballs 40 years ago.
I don’t care much for Celebi either, again, maybe it’s because I’m biased toward Grass types seeing how I don’t like them, but, I don’t like Celebi, and neither do Pokemon fans in game because HOLY SHIT Celebi is the HARDEST legendary to obtain without cheating.
The only way to get this little onion fairy legetamentally was to buy a Special 2-Disk japanese copy of Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness (Pokemon Colosseum 2) with a special bonus that can only be used after 100% completing the game.
Yeah… That’s bullshit…
Also, this movie is pretty much Princess Mononoke lite, seriously, the similarities are too close to be coincidence, I was half expecting Ash to suck poison out of Misty’s leg…
That would be kinda kinky if that happened, and I’m sure Misty wouldn’t tell Ash to stop.
I know mimicry is a form of flattery, but this just feels like a ripoff more than anything else.
This movie… Skip it, I don’t recommend it.
Again, watch Princess Mononoke instead it’s this movie, because it’s this movie but done right.
Movie 5: Pokemon Heroes:
On to the final Pokemon Movie of the original series, and even though this movie feature Gen 3 Hoenn Legendaries as the main focus, this is still part of the “Original Series” line of movies.
This movie starts the trend of ending, or beginning a new “series” with the next generation's rare/legendary Pokemon.
This also the last Pokemon movie to have a theatrical release outside of Japan as “Pokemania” was dying out by Gen 3.
These movies would later premiere on Toon Disney and then later Cartoon Network.
The main film's setting is in the water-themed Johto city called Alto Mare (“High City”) based off of real life cities like Venice Italy, and Amsterdam Netherlands.
The city is watched over by two legendary dragons Latios and Latias, these two are involved in a story where some asshole trainer used Kabutops and Aerodactyl to terrorize the city; that is until the original Latios came to stop the two by drowning them by using the cities canal system.
However the Latios died, leaving his two children orphaned, his soul is within a special jewel called the Soul Dew.
This Soul Dew is want by two Team Rocket members, Annie and Oakley, who want to use it to activate up the town’s defense mechanism.
Elsewhere, Ash, Misty, and Brock are visiting the town when they hear word of the Tour de Alto Mare, as Ash and Misty decide to enter the water chariot race as the opening credits play.
Misty beats Ash as he was thrown off course by the invisible Eon Duo.
Sometime later, the trio bump into a museum curator named Lorenzo, who tells them more about the town and it’s defense mechanism.
Ash later chases after a girl named Bianca, loses her, then follows Latias disguised as Bianca to a secret garden where Latios and Latias live.
Bianca threatens to remove Ash by force, but Lorenzo tells her to calm her tits for a moment to clear up the tension from the misunderstandings, Latios and Latias then begin to play with Ash and Pikachu for a little while so they can get more friendly.
Annie and Oakley make their move and steal the Soul Dew and Latios right under our heroes noses.
Latias then flees to Ash to get him to help her to save her brother and the Soul Dew.
After a chase and crashing into the undead Aerodactyl the heroes arrive at the DMA going haywire with Latios fatally injured.
After freeing Latios, the Soul Dew turns black as the machine shuts down, when this happens the city’s water turns into a tsunami.
Latios and Latias use their psychic powers to stop the waves from crashing into the city, but sadly Latios sacrifices himself in the process.
Latios becomes the new Soul Dew and the new guardian of Alto Mare.
In the last scene, as the trio are on a boat, getting ready to leave Alto Mare, Bicana races up to Ash before he leaves, and gives him a quick kiss, the reactions on Misty and Brock… Priceless!
My thoughts on this movie?
Better than Pokemon 4ever that’s sure.
Again, I’ve said this before, I don't give much of a damn for Gen 3, seeing how I was “Pokemon’d” out by Gen 3, but, that didn’t stop me from loving the Eon Duo of Latios and Latias, I didn’t think I’d love a dragon as much as Charizard, but Latias comes in a pretty close 3rd place, next to Lugia in 2nd place.
The one thing that this movie started was the “Pokemon sacrifices itself to save the day” trope, this isn’t the first movie where this’ll happen.
I do feel like this helps us care more about the Pokemon the dies, I mean shit, I felt so bad for poor little Latias, as we saw her lose her brother right in front of her eyes, she was even crying too…
But, I feel that’s what made Latias’ character stronger, she did have that childlike innocence and kid like mentality, but she knew when to get serious and help those she cared for.
Also the last thing I’ll bring up is the ending with Bianca.
In the movie, I find it cute how Latias kind develops a “crush” on Ash, as I strongly believe that the “Binaca” we see at the end of the movie is Latias herself.
Why do I believe it?
Well, the real Binaca is a bit of a loudmouth and like to yell at people, while Latias as “Bicana” is mute and shy.
Geez Ash, maybe your destiny wasn’t to become a Pokemon Master, but to lay with a Dragon!
I hear it’s legal to Poke your Pokemon in Sinnoh!
But other then that, this was an improvement from Pokemon 4ever, I recommend watching this one as well.
Well, that’s all I have to say on the Original Series movies, I liked them all except for Pokemon 4ever, I found Celebi too annoying to be cute, not to mention all of the time travel plot holes tossed in for a good mix…
But all the others are great fun to watch, my favorite is The Power of One followed closely by Mewtwo Strikes Back.
Next time I’ll be reviewing the “Advanced Generation” series of movies that take place in Hoenn.
Are these movies also good?
...Well… You’ll see…
