One of the Best and Most Underrated Pokemon Movies
23 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know I'm in a minority, but in my opinion, this is one of the best of the Pokémon series. It gets things back on track after the underwhelming "Jirachi" movie.

The film returns the series to the epic scope and feel of "Pokémon 2000." I loved LaRousse City as the setting. It was very colorful and creative.

The story is fairly interesting, although I felt that the thing with Tory being afraid of all Pokemon was a little exaggerated and got annoying after a while. I liked Sid and Rafe as supporting characters.

This is definitely one of the most action-packed Pokémon movies to date. From LaRousse losing its power to the gang battling multiple Deoxyses to the exhilarating battles between Deoxys and Rayquaza to the robot blocks going haywire, it really delivers some excitement.

The music score is once again really good and, for some reason, I have a soft spot for the song "This Side of Paradise." The song just gives me a really good feeling.

The superfluous Munchlax scenes aside, this is one of the most thoroughly enjoyable entries in the series. I'd definitely say it's in my top 5 Pokémon movies, if not top 3. This is a very underrated film that I recommend to any Pokémon fan.

8.5/10
