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.

Did You Know?

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 »

Goofs

Though Erica Schroeder was credited by her "Bella Hudson" alias like the rest of her Pokémon work during the 4Kids era, she is listed in the "Featuring" section of the cast credits (sorted alphabetically by last name) between Sean Schemmel and Rebecca Soler. 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?
Lucario: I don't have any friends and I don't want any.
[leaves the room]
Ash: [sarcastically] Nice attitude.

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.

good try, but is still no match for the third!
30 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I only watched this on you tube rather than give it a rental or even own it. That said, I did like the opening sequence which gives the complete history of Pokémon. However, after that it begins to go down hill and becomes another advanced generation episode with the same old paper-thin, immature, predictable plot, annoying characters (like Max and May), and same old third-rate pop songs from the show. I did like the animation though, and how Lucario had to understand humans, but with the inclusion of Mew, it kind of lost its "umph". I only recommend renting it to see what it is like. The third movie still ranks even with the test of time as the number one Pokémon movie
