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

Personal least favorite of the series; still great
28 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pokemon 3 was definitely entertaining. I will say it was not as good as I thought it was going to be, considering how the first two were insanely enjoyable kids movies, but if you liked them you are sure to like this one for the same reasons. This movie, was still, great like the others, and I enjoyed watching the newly introduced Pokemon and characters.

To me, the humor could have been left without, as usual, the sad scenes, were not as tear-jerking like in Pokemon 4Ever and the first movie, and the action was watered down a bit than what it was in the first two. There was really nothing spectacular, but every Pokemon lover has to know that it doesn't take a masterpiece to entertain, because of course the Pokemon series aren't masterpieces, but they still deliver great entertainment.

The plot to this movie was that the new legendary Pokemon, Entei, in this movie was able to speak with his mind. He was guarding over this girl Molly, for she believes he's her father. There's the Pokemon called the Unown, who are causing chaos all across this little town in the mean time. This movie's plot sounds so corny and stupid, but it's really not. This was a great film, and anybody who's fans of the first two feature length films or Pokemon in general absolutely needs to see the third and fourth installments.
