Storyline

During their travels through the Unova region, Ash and his friends Iris and Cilan arrive in Eindoak Town, built around a castle called the Sword of the Vale. The three Trainers have come to compete in the town's annual battle competition, and Ash manages to win with some unexpected help from the Mythical Pokémon Victini. It turns out Victini has a special bond with this place. Long ago, the castle watched over the Kingdom of the Vale, and the partnership between Victini and the king protected its people who lived there. But that kingdom has since vanished into memory, leaving behind powerful relics and ancient Pokémon. Damon, a descendant of the People of the Vale, is trying to restore the lost kingdom with the help of his Reuniclus. His quest has taken him to the far reaches of the barren desert, and he has convinced the Legendary Pokémon Reshiram to join him in the search for truth. Damon plans to trap Victini and harness its power, and as that plan gets under way, the entire town ... Written by Official site

By Far, My Favorite of the "Newer" Pokemon Movies
20 June 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Many people may disagree, but this is my favorite post-Hoenn Pokémon movie. It felt fresher and was done better than most of the other newer movies.

The story isn't out of this world, but it's pretty interesting. Damon wishes to bring the kingdom back to power by using the legend of the People of the Vale. Nothing particularly new, but it was done the right way, in my opinion. Damon was pretty good as the "misled protagonist."

Ash's relationship with Victini was actually pretty well done, probably the best since his bond with Lucario from "Lucario and the Mystery of Mew." They become so close that they nearly die for each other.

The animation is especially good in this one, very rich and colorful. The action set pieces were larger-than-life and quite epic.

I'm really not a fan of Iris or Cilan, I feel that they are very weak characters. Also, as usual, there are some pretty stupid moments.

In my opinion, this is the most satisfying Pokémon movie since "Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea." I think even fans who have stopped watching the series should give this one a try.

8/10
