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

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 »
While most Pokémon are only able to say their own name, in the short "Pikachu's Rescue Adventure" that precedes the feature, a character is seen bouncing around and saying "Poliwrath." While some think that character looks like a Poliwhirl, it is indeed a Poliwrath - only the eyes of the two monsters differ. See more »

I was unfortunately dragged to this film yesterday, being the first day out in theaters in the US. I didn't really feel like seeing it since I'm not a Pokemon fan anyways. I skipped the first movie for that reason. But this time, my cousins had to drag me. I waited for the movie to start, even though I didn't want it to. I just wanted to get it over with. The animated short Pikachu's Rescue Adventure shows before the movie, and it's utterly stupid, boring, pointless. As for the movie itself, it would be the same thing. Kids will go crazy for it, while teens and adults like me will sit back and be bored and annoyed to death. They were dragged to it after all. Is there a redeeming quality in this film? Yes a small one. The transformation sequence at the end (I won't mention what it is) is sorta nice to watch. The music goes well with it, and it's the highlight of the movie. However, the movie as a whole is completely disposable and forgettable. If you want good family entertainment that you don't mind being dragged to, Titan AE is a good example. But if it's at all possible, stay away from this one. It's 101 minutes of pure wasted time
