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.

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 Pokémon Movie Yet
13 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a fantastic movie. The subplots were fantastic, the music was inspirational and phenomenal, and the song 'Advanced Battle' was also not half bad. There were a couple of things changed in the dub that I did not like, but it was still pretty good. The worst thing about this movie though, is Lucario's VA. In the original, they made Lucario sound like a noble,medieval, sensitive, ninja (which he is), but in the dub, they made him sound like a constantly angry monster. Lucario is no monster! He has feelings too! Anyways, if you've ever liked anything about Pokémon, or are willing to give it a try, then I highly suggest you watch this movie.

But alas, even though it is fantastic, it is still relatively immature, and is nowhere near as deep as some other movies.
