In this direct-to-video sequel to Pokémon: The First Movie, Ash, Misty, and Brock continue exploring the Johto region, then have to rescue Pikachu after Jessie and James of Team Rocket ... See full summary »
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.
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.
An evil genius in a flying fortress is trying to kidnap the birds of the fire, ice, and lightning islands in hopes of luring the sea power, Lugia, and controlling the world. Ash and his friends, in the process of carrying out an island tradition that requires visiting those three islands, discover the plot and try to stop it. Even the comic villains, Team Rocket, turn good and help out in the end against the threat of world destruction. And Pokemon assemble from all around the world in case they can be of help (but they end up helping only the merchandising).Written by

When Lugia speaks for the first time, during the conversation he has with Ash in one shot his wings are flapping, in the next shot they are still. See more »
[Japanese Version only scene]
It's a Water Gun/100,000 volts combo. Once the water is affected by the electricity, it separates, becoming H2 and O. And with the Flamethrower... Everybody duck!

Team Rocket emerge from the water partly into the credits, upset that no one will know of their good-doings, but Slowking appears and shows that the film's audience has just seen them do good. See more »
The US release had a 3 second scene cut. During the scene when Ash (Satoshi in the Japanese Version) and Team Rocket (Rocket Gang) were trying to free Moltres (Fire) and Zapados (Thunder), Tracy is doing a quick equition, thinking outloud about what happens when you mix fire water and electricity, and the fact it will cause a huge explosion. This scene is cut from the English dub of the film. See more »
Excuse me if i sound a little choked up. But this movie symbolizes many things. It was the best poke'mon movie made, and it was the last worth wile poke'mon movie made. None is better when it comes to this film's greatness. It had everything i was looking for, including more. Being an AAML(Ash and Misty love) fan, i found it particularly enjoyable from that stand point. The biggest clues about this couple in the 9+ years of the franchise existence is right here in this movie. Of course at the time it was in it's second year of existence. It also contained dramatic twists, and memorable lines that stand out in all poke'mon fan's minds forever. No poke'mon experience comes as good as this movie.
