not as good as the original
12 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Seeing all the glowing reviews for this film (which looks a bit suspicious if you ask me), I decided to add my own two cents.

First of all, if you're not a gamer AND familiar with the world of Pokemon, you pretty much don't have to bother with this film at all. Even if you liked the original characters. It's nice to see them return (except for the character of Sam, where Lauren Chambers was replaced with Jennifer Zahn and it shows). The problem is the film is simply too short to develop a relevant story-arc for all three characters including one new character, princess Xanna. We barely learn anything about what happened between the two films. And what we learn is fragmented and only told, not shown. Characters don't really grow or change in the process, they stay the same by the end of the movie.

Some of the jokes are funny, some are not and some require some previous knowledge of the world of games.

If you liked the first one, chances are you will like this one as well. I cannot give it more than 5 stars, I simply wasn't impressed with it that much.
