The BOR-RING factor outweighs everything else.
8 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you like Pokemon as much as I do, you won't want to miss the appearance of a Pokemon that is, otherwise, never shown on TV. Though I would make an exception for this movie, even you're a hardcore Pokemon fan.

I've been following Pokemon shows, games and movies ever since I was a child. This has got to be the most boring Pokemon movie yet! More than half of the entire movie is FILLERS and nothing but FILLERS. The plot is crappy and the only character development was when their past is revealed in a brief sentence or two. The voice over is terrible, especially for Jirachi. Half way through, I was so disappointed that it felt painful to sit on my seat.

The only reason why this movie didn't receive a 1 star from me is because of the sudden twist towards the end. It saved the movie and made it almost worth watching.

Again, even for hardcore Pokemon fans, you might want to simply skip the first half. Trust me, you won't miss a damn thing!
