Did You Know?


Some American theaters gave away goody bags to anyone who went to see the film. The bags' contents included a movie sticker, a jumbo Victini trading card, the first chapter of the Black & White manga, and a code one could scan to get Victini in a Nintendo 3DS Pokedex game. See more »

Crazy Credits

During the end credits, several scenes are played, which show Victini saying good-bye to Ash and his friends, Reshiram and Zekrom flying in the night, Damon having a dream of his land being replenished, and Ash, Iris, Cilan, and Pikachu coming out of the path they first took, walking into the distance.

Two versions of the same film were released simultaneously in Japanese theaters. The only major plot difference is that the hero, Ash, and the villain, Damon, side with different dragon Pokemon (Damon with Reshiram and Ash with Zekrom in White - Victini and Zekrom, vice versa in Black - Victini and Reshiram).

Gotta catch a verdict
8 July 2020 | by John6DanielsSee all my reviews

Currently bored from being on the Q. I pop in this movie and it's making me even more bored.

Its really corny. It has your typical pokemon cliches.

Verdict is this movie can't save you from boredom.
