the best pokemon movie ever
14 August 2014 | by mohanraj148See all my reviews

"the best" Pokemon movie ........watch it :):D .... with out fail

When I first saw this movie I was like superb! This is one of the best Pokemon movies I've ever seen so far. & I had this feeling that I must buy this movie. The best thing I really like about this movie is that the movie followed up on the plot perfectly.The special effects in 3 D turned out great. & best of all it had such a sad but cute happy ending to it. I totally disagree on how the star rating turned out to be. I think this movie deserves something better. I would give this movie an 8.5 star rating. From all the Pokemon movies that I've seen they have been starting to improve quite a bit. Great job! Keep up the good work!
