This movie centers around the new pokémon Celebi, a one-of-a-kind veggie-like bug whose only kin are celebi from other points in time. The movie begins in the past where a young boy named Sam attempts to save Celebi from a hunter. In a reciprocal effort, Celebi uses his power and transports itself and Sam to the present, Ash Ketchum's time. Sam and Ash become good friends as they fight to save Celebi from the new Team Rocket villain, the Iron-Masked Marauder and his darkball, which turns pokémon evil and augments their powers to the maximum. Yet, one rare pokémon isn't safe without help from another - thus enters Suicune, a.k.a. the North Wind.Written by

The Japanese version didn't include the phone conversation with Ash and Dr. Oak at the end of the movie, where Oak hinted that he was Sammy. The producers asked for that sequence to be made. See more »
Don't get me wrong, Shigeru Miyamato is a complete game genius, but that's with games. He didn't go far enough with this movie. This is the same as the Pokemon series- dumb. Corny jokes from annoying animals who repeat their names. You wanna know what I suggest? Parents, leave your kids in the movie theater that shows Pokemon, and then take off to see The Transporter. Yeah, that's much better.
In other words, don't waste a good 79 minutes on this lame movie.
