The First Mediocre Pokemon Movie
17 June 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Back in 2009, I stopped watching Pokémon shortly before this movie came out and moved on to other things. I did it because of how the series was losing its steam and was not going to end anytime soon. Watching this movie for the first time recently reminds me of why. This is definitely one of the weaker entries in the series.

Shaymin is one of the if not the most annoying Pokémon ever. He totally got on my nerves. If he is the "gratitude Pokemon", why was he so full of himself and such a jerk to Ash? The emotional "goodbye" at the end despite him and Ash's hate/hate relationship had me cringing.

Zero (that's the best name they could come up with?!) is one of the most boring, generic villains the series has to offer. He is mostly a rehash of the villain from "Pokémon 2000." Even Vicious from "Pokémon 4Ever" was a more interesting villain than him. His motives were also pretty questionable. What is so great about ruling the reverse world?

I will admit, though, that the reverse world was really cool and interesting. Giratina is one of the best and most "legendary" legendary Pokémon. However, the inclusion of Regigigas was totally unnecessary and added nothing to the story.

There are some good action sequences throughout, but nothing that truly stands out. The animation is as good, however, and I love "It's a Beautiful World."

While not without a few highlights, this film fails more than it succeeds. It's a mediocre Pokémon film all the way, and probably the fifth worst of the series. Recommended only to Pokémon fans.

5.5/10
