Very Good Film
12 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a brilliant film, it explains a lot about Mewtwo's departure after the first film. the emphasis is on mewtwo's solitary with the cloned pokemon he lives with, and Giovanni's quest to reclaim mewtwo as his own property.

The film has a deep storyline and is obviously set within the Johto League. This doesn't seem to be in the list of official pokemon films so i can only assume it was a straight to video extra, which is good for any fan of pokemon who wants an explanation of happenings and events after the first movie, even though it is set 2 or 3 seasons later.

I would recommend this film for any pokemon fan, especially great fans of the first film, very well worth a watch!
