For an animation, this film was the best I've ever seen. It had exceptional quality throughout and it actually convinced me to watch the television series. I like the way it spans different time lines and explains the whole story, rather than the Pokemon movie. It entertained me every step of the way with a great sound track, dialogue, and characters. The plot seems rather simple when you first hear what it's actually about, but its modern approach makes it original and likeable. The only problem was, the screenplay was a little too quick, even for people who watch the television show, and I lost track in some parts of the movies; in fact, I had to watch it twice to properly understand the entire film. But, everything else aside, I really liked this film and I'd seriously recommend it to anyone, adults or children. If you think it's just another Pokemon movie, you're wrong.
