OK if you are a poke fan
30 August 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting much. I found the Mewtwo movie better. I thought it would be interesting having a pokemon grant wishes, but hey this is for kids.

I have also seen pokemon 2 and will be watching Pokemon 7 Destiny Deoxys. I started watching the TV series then the red/blue gold silver and other games came out, then we got the Mewtwo movie so I have missed the ones between 2 and this one.

If you don't know much about pokemon you wont get the small team rocket parts and the powers pokemon have such as Pikachu's thunder attacks, but you wont miss much of the story. Go back and watch the TV series or play a gameboy version if you're a bit lost but I doubt it.

A better name for the magician could have been better, though it was original. The plot is simple and you don't need to guess whats going to happen.
