Zoroark: Master of Illusions (2010) is different from all of Pokémon
films. It isn't an odd one but a great one. It sets in a beautiful city
yet it is environmentally friendly. What's more visually impressive are
the amazing illusions created by Zoroark, the master of illusions
itself, in a grand scale. Captivating and feasting the audiences eyes
with all of that, the animated feature also has one of the most
compelling plot for a family film. Though, it can be overwhelming as it
can be dark but it is also heartwarming in the most subtle way!
Particularly, the plot of this animated feature involves a lot of deception and it has realistic progression. It may also educate young audiences about mass media as it presents a clever media control and manipulation story. Then, its villain named Gring Kodai is certainly one of the most interesting villain created by the franchise. He has a strong and merciless personality but like every human in the world, he is never without his own flaws. In the end, it shows how pathetic some people can be due to greed. One should not damage the environment due to selfish reasons and forcibly separate the child from parents!
If you must know or kind of know through reading my film blog, I can be quite hopeless for everything endearing. However, I understand that it's not the same for everyone but I must mention that Pokémon are lovely creatures in the anime and video games. They are not just pets but life long companion and it is quite fun to watch them. Then, the friendship between Pokémon are also genuinely so innocent and they often can be amusing. While it is unlikely for us to understand Pokénese fully, it is not difficult to understand these creatures as they are quite straightforward in their expressions. From the city's and (time) travelling Pokémon to shiny legendary and interesting new ones; there are just so many adorable Pokémon in this one!
(Speaking of time travelling, this is another interesting time travel related story by Pokémon. It seems to be a follow up to Celebi: Voice of the Forest (2001) but it is not as the Celebi here is not the same one though they might know each other!)
In brief, Zoroark: Master of Illusions (2010) is exceptionally satisfying. I am happy to report, this one is worth your time to watch and it is certainly ranked highly among the best Pokémon films ever made. It can be the most outstanding, clever or emotional one out there as the creators of this animated feature clearly put a lot of effort into making this one. It all depends on yourself but in general, I am sure this one is great. Too bad, it is also the last one featuring Dawn because she is one of the most pleasant characters ever.
PS. This is the only one I rated 9 stars. Will write Worst to Best Pokemon film soon.
