Short, sweet, and extends the games' storyline
23 January 2004 | by (Ball State University, Muncie, IN) – See all my reviews

As it should be. This movie continues along the concept of the original movies: to further the sales of the games by expanding upon their concepts. For those of you who actually play the game, this movie makes complete sense. For everyone else, I suggest you start by playing the game to get some background before delving into the Pokémon Universe (and giving this movie a one).
