Storyline

In the town of Lohta, a festival is thrown praising "Aaron the Wave Leader Hero" who, according to the legend passed down through the town's generations, stopped a war centuries ago by using the power of "the Tree of the World's Origin." Satoshi and Pikachu participate in a battle to decide this year's hero and after their victory, they are chosen as the "Wave Leader Hero." A grand dance party is held in the castle to celebrate the victor, but suddenly the phantom Pokemon Mew appears and takes Pikachu. Soon afterwards, the Wave Leader Pokemon "Lucario" is freed from his centuries-long seal and meets Satoshi. Satoshi must solve the various mysteries of where Pikachu is, what Mew's after, what the secret of the legend of the Wave Leader is and how it ties in with Lucario's hidden past as he makes his way to "the Tree of the World's Origin" with Lucario.

Trivia

"Lucario" as a name is very similar to the last name of George Lucas. Lucas's Star Wars series contains the supernatural Force, which is the basis for aura in this film. See more »

Quotes

Ash: [after being headlocked by Lucario] Whyd did you do that?
Lucario: You snuck up behind me; that is always a mistake.
Ash: Hey Lucario, I'm really glad you're coming along to help me find Pikachu.
Lucario: This Pikachu, are you its master?
Ash: Master? Are you kidding? No Pikachu and I are best friends.
Lucario: Friends?
Ash: If one of your friends was lost, you'd wanna bring 'em too, wouldn't ya?

Crazy Credits

During the end credits, various scenes depict the following: 1) Ash and company arriving back at the palace, and seeing the picture of Sir Aaron--only now it also depicts Lucario at his side. 2) Them leaving to continue on their journey. 3) Them saying good-bye to Kidd, and Brock crying helplessly. 4) Kidd meeting up with somebody to examine a rare find. 5) Team Rocket following the gang in a river-side city. 6) Sir Aaron and Lucario sharing a chocolate bar (more than likely in the afterlife). 7) Ash, Pikachu, May, Brock and Max continuing on their travels.

Best Pokemon Movie Yet
18 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was a little hesitant to watch this movie, after seeing the other Advanced Generation movies (Jirachi, Deoxys). But I'm glad I did. The opening was one of the best introductions I've ever seen to any movie, and the title was just as impressive. I was a little curious as to why the main theme (I'm Unbeatable) was postponed until twenty minutes into the movie, but it went well with that particular scene. And the plot was fascinating, albeit with holes in places. At places, the movie even made me cry--something that hasn't been done since Pokemon Heroes.

Overall, an enjoyable film. Highly recommended, even to non-Pokemon fans.
