On a remote island the pokemon have their holidays. It is generally a very peaceful time of fun and relaxation, however, when Pikachu goes there for his break, he finds things less than fun as he has a baby pokemon to look after; a baby that is difficult to keep happy and entertained leading to conflict between him and other groups of pokemon.

Cute but has too many distractions
23 September 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

It's great to see so many of our favourite Pokemon enjoying themselves & helping each other out. However the film constantly interrupts itself with weird Pokemon routines. It also would have been better with subtitles so we would know what they were saying. A TV episode called Island of the Giant Pokemon had subtitles and it worked well. A nice idea that needs improvement. 7/10
