A vast improvement over the second pokemon movie, but still pales to the first....
11 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

The second pokemon movie was terrible, and when I saw this one I thought it would be equally as bad - I am happy to say it is not! It is a very short movie, but that it used to its advantage, as it jumps straight into the action, with a plot that it similar to that of a childrens fairytale. It is straightforward and cliched, but you would expect that from a pokemon movie, and this is lighthearted entertainment, sure to please.
