Hundred percent Generation II Pokémon and it is easy to love the characters, story and visuals!
26 December 2014 | by (http://rosalynmuses.blogspot.com) – See all my reviews

The Legend of Thunder! (2001) is indeed a special one. It is much more entertaining compared to the previous films due to the fact that it is lively and refreshing. With endearing and legendary Pokémon making their appearance in this television film, it is fun to watch. It will also certainly be appealing to those who yearn for a change as it has introduced different human protagonists for the first time!

Unfortunately, many Pokémon fans have uttered that the English dubbed version is terrible as its flaws are unacceptable and it is heavily edited. While it is true that its overall experience can be different compared to the original Japanese version, I would still say that this is one of the most satisfying Pokémon films!

Those who have played Pokémon Crystal, Gold and Silver titles or read the Pokémon manga series before may find this nostalgic as The Legend of Thunder! (2001) is hundred percent Generation II Pokémon. Their main characters even the Pokémon are mostly based on characters that are exclusive for the first time from the aforementioned games and the sight of Raikou here is absolutely amazing as it is mythical.

So, is The Legend of Thunder! (2001) worth watching? Certainly yes, especially the original version. Too bad it is not made into a TV anime series, as it is easy to love the characters, story and visuals... it would make a great spin-off anime series!
