Storyline

An evil genius in a flying fortress is trying to kidnap the birds of the fire, ice, and lightning islands in hopes of luring the sea power, Lugia, and controlling the world. Ash and his friends, in the process of carrying out an island tradition that requires visiting those three islands, discover the plot and try to stop it. Even the comic villains, Team Rocket, turn good and help out in the end against the threat of world destruction. And Pokemon assemble from all around the world in case they can be of help (but they end up helping only the merchandising). Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Did You Know?

Trivia

As a word, "bakutan" (commonly translated as "explosive birth") does not exist in Japanese, but its two kanji are abbreviations of the Japanese words "bakuhatsuteki" (explosive) and "tanjou" (birth). "Bakutan" is a pun of "bakudan" which means "bomb" in Japanese. See more »

Goofs

Melody calls Misty by her name before the two are ever introduced. It's been suggested this was because Misty is a famous gym owner and Pokemon master, though Melody doesn't seem to treat her as someone famous, and in fact another correspondent says she is not well known. See more »

Quotes

Mrs. Ketchum: And remember Ash, everyday, you're my hero.
Ash: Thanks, mom.

I liked it.
27 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

People should Stop Talking trash about this excellent movie. There is adventure and action, comic situations, good morals, adorable characters (PIKACHU & TOGEPI), beautiful animation, super script, suspenseful events, and everything you can think of that makes an all around great movie, even better. It is also a great way to inspire children that they can make a difference, no matter when times are hard. It Also influences kids That friends are the most powerful tool of all, and can help you when you are down, and out. Very, very cool, and Very, Very Exciting. To simply sum up my point, BOTH KIDS AND PARENTS WILL BOTH ENJOY THIS MOVIE!!!!
