The sequel I've been waiting for!
7 January 2002 | by (Reynolds, IN) – See all my reviews

This movie's short, but it's great! I enjoyed watching Ash and co. re-introduce themselves to Mewtwo and bringing back all of the clones! The Pikachu and Meowth clones are great! And Giovanni tries to get Mewtwo back again! What'll happen? Find out for yourselves!
