Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

One Of The Best Pokemon Movies I Have Ever Seen!
5 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm still a Pokemon fan & I always will be! Because I grew up with Pokemon when I was little. When I first saw this movie I was like WOAH! This is one of the best Pokemon movies I've ever seen so far. & I had this feeling that I must buy this movie. The best thing I really like about this movie is that the movie followed up on the plot perfectly. The song "Oracion" turned out to be a beautiful inspiration to me. The special effects in 3D turned out great. & best of all it had such a sad but cute happy ending to it. I totally disagree on how the star rating turned out to be. I think this movie deserves something better. I would give this movie an 8.5 star rating. From all the Pokemon movies that I've seen they have been starting to improve quite a bit. Great job! Keep up the good work!
