Getting Better...
5 August 2004 | by mab22386See all my reviews

This movie is the best out of all 6 movies released so far. It has everything the other Pokemon films had except its executed much better. The two new characters Max and May add something to this movie that the others lack... the sense of a real chemistry between characters. While the villain in this one is the stupidest of the series (I mean his name is butler and he is a magician, come on). The song at the end of the film is very beautiful and nice to listen too. Overall this film is one of the better animated releases this year, too bad it was released direct to video while the last 3 crappy Pokemon films got theatrical releases.

GRADE: B
