The sound that Palkia makes in this film is derived from the sound of Boga the Varactyl from Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005). Here, it is also mixed with sounds that Godzilla (Godzilla (1954)) and King Ghidorah (Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964)) make. See more »


During the Oracion end scene, there is a shot of the towers zoomed out with Alice and the gang on the bridge. It shows all the complete features of the tower. However, when the wings show, the "complete" set of flowers and vines disappear See more »

the film can go two ways
9 November 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I have been a Pokemon Fan from the start but I was slightly disappointed with this film.

Many pokemon fan know that 4Kids entertainment had the rights to all pokemon anime/movies how ever it was then taken over by "" so the leading roll of Ash ketchum would no longer be played by Veronica Taylor but by Sarah Natochenny (A sound alike vice actor) no offense to Sarah but Veronica was the Voice many people had come to know as Ash's voice. How ever the sound alike sounds NOTHING like Ash, and this movie is the best example of bad dubbing, all the original voices have been changed for the worst except for Jessie (the red headed member of team rocket) who for some reason sounds the same.

But aside from the voices, the story line and plot of this movie, kept me watching till the end. a nice choice of music for the battling moments,

The story is set around the time of the Diamond and pearl animes time line, as two pokemon are engaged in a battle caught between space and time, in the mean time ash and his buddies arrive in a new town, where Darkrai ( a pokemon that is cause of your bad dreams ) is bringing chaos to the town and its people. could this be the end of the pokemon world as we know it ?
