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

So, you're a Pokémon trainer, huh? I guess he'll do. Here's your traditional welcome kiss.
[Melody kisses Ash]
Are you his little sister?
I am not.
Well, then I guess you must be, his girlfriend.
Oh, I don't think so. I'll be glad to play for him tonight at the legend banquet. Starts around eight. Oh, and Misty. Try not to get jealous.
You're a Pokémon Trainer? Oh, well. Customs, customs. Welcome.

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 »
A cut scene right after Ash releases Bulbasaur and Squirtle to free Moltres, Tracy is realizing what will happen. Togepi can be seen waving his arms back and forth, which is his Metronome attack. When the scene returns, a blue bolt can be seen destroying Moltres' cage. See more »
I think kids will probably like this sequel to the first Pokemon movie, but not love it. I certaintly didn't. And not to offend any kids reading this, but this was a pretty stupid movie. Not funny stupid like Dumb and Dumber, but really stupid like in Ski Patrol. True it is a well animated movie that is pretty colorful (thanks to the art of anime), but there is no payoff. The plot is a concocted one that kids might even find confusing, which is not good. But, it isn't in the worst film of the year category because of a few good scenes (and that the first short before the movie will make the dialogue seem like Shakespeare), not that that means this is worth a second viewing. Kids will like it, others might beware it. C+
