Trivia

Nintendo's largest domestic box office flop, raking in less than $750,000 in the United States. However, it should be pointed out it was only released in 200 theaters. Internationally, it earned a reasonable gross of around $20 million. See more »

A Great Film
7 May 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My second favourite Pokemon film. This film is set in the city Altomare, based on Venice. The city is guarded by Latios and Latias, two dragon and psychic Pokemon. They also protect the Soul Dew, a jewel said to contain the spirit of their father. However, two thieves come to steal the jewel in order to power the DMA (The Defence Mechanism of Altomare), although the reason why is never explained. Once again, coincidentally, Ash, Pikachu, Misty and Brock are visiting the city and get involved in the race to save the city. There also a wonderful bond between Ash, Latias and Latios, which seems to be the main support beam which prevents this movie from turning bad. As a nice point to Mario, the curator of the city's museum is dressed in his attire.
