Storyline

When Molly Hale's father goes missing, the strange Pokemon that he was studying come to Molly by the power of the strange little blocks. The Pokemon, the Unown, create Entei to act as Molly's father, and, because of her wish to have a mother too, Entei only goes and kidnaps Delia Ketchum, who just happens to be Ash's mom. So Ash, Misty and Brock go to the Hale mansion to stop these strange events once and for all...before time runs out for life as we know it. Written by Eji P. 2K6

The best pokemon movie ever!
24 June 2003 | by (Where I live) – See all my reviews

Being a fan of the pokemon TV show, I really wanted to see this movie, and it was worth it. It told the wonderful story of a girl named Molly, and how her mom was taken by the Unown(by the way, in the original version, her mother was institutionalized instead of taken by the Unown) Molly's father loved her dearly, and he (too,) was taken by the Unown, and when the Unown saw Molly miserable, they made all her dreams a reality. The whole landscape was turned into ice and her home was a castle. The Unown created the legendary Entei, who took the place of Molly's father. Ash, Team Rocket and everyone else tries to convince Molly her world isn't "real" and she needs to get back into the "real" world.

I really adored how innocent Molly was and how her parents loved her. She is my favorite pokemon movie character. Entei was well done, and I liked his purple fire balls and the battle he had with Charizard. Great to see Charizard back, by the way! (It returned again when Ash was getting the Rising Badge from Clair in Master Quest, but that's another story) The computer animation with the Unown was nice as well. The crystal tower was good, and it was kind of reminds me of Emerald City from "The Wizard Of Oz". We also see Molly become older, and the first anime/movie appearences of Kingdra, Teddihursa and Flaafy. (Watch the credits, and you'll see she got a real Teddihursa)

"Pikachu and Pichu" was another good short, with LOTS of interesting pokemon and all-around cuteness. "Pokemon The Movie" was pretty bad with the 2nd and 4th movies better, and this WAY better. Go see it! You won't be sorry! A 9/10.
