When Pikachu is taken to the Tree of Beginnings by the playful Mew, Ash Ketchum and friends are guided to the tree by Lucario, a time-displaced Pokémon who seeks answers regarding the betrayal of his master.
Ash Ketchum from Pallet Town is 10 years old today. This means he is now old enough to become a Pokémon Trainer. Ash dreams big about the adventures he will experience after receiving his first Pokémon from Professor Oak.
An idyllic town is thrown into chaos when two powerful Pokémon, Dialga and Palkia, cross paths and battle, distorting the dimensions of time and space. The only hope comes from Darkrai, a shadowy Pokémon shunned by the townsfolk.
Our heroes must protect the Prince of the Sea, Manaphy, from the evil pirate Phantom, and return the young Pokémon to the Sea Temple with the help of the the People of the Water and Jackie the Pokémon Ranger.
When a group of scientists are offered funding into genetic research if they agree to try and clone the greatest ever Pokémon, Mew, the end result is success and Mewtwo is born. However Mewtwo is bitter about his purpose in life and kills his masters. In order to become the greatest he throws open a challenge to the world to battle him and his Pokémon. Ash and his friends are one of the few groups of trainers who pass the first test and prepare for battle. However they soon find out about further cloning and Mewtwo's ultimate plan for the earth.Written by

After the credits, we see Mew fly away into the mountains. See more »
In the Japanese version, Meowth is more of a philosopher. He's poetic and he sings more than he does in the English translation. Also in this version, he's heard singing a song about the meaning of life during the credits, but the English translation just includes pop songs. See more »

The first of 8+ poke'mon movies, started back in 99
I saw this movie in November of 1999 when the show was flourishing quite well then. it was the most popular thing at the time. Even today the show is a significant part of my life. There were some quality humor in this film, such as the Minnesota Vikings bit. And even to this day i get a little misty eyed when the ending of the movie comes as the poke'mon's tears revive Ash in a dramatic scene of excellence. The movie also contains great songs, definitely my favorite movie soundtrack of all time. The animation was very fine, it was different than the television show. Anyone could enjoy this film. Overall this was the best poke'mon movie made, well after the second one anyways...
