Did You Know?


This movie marks the first time that the final movie of an anime series features no Pokémon from the following generation. It does, however, feature a new form of evolution of an old Pokémon that can only be obtained starting in the following generation. In addition, it is the first movie to not debut any new Pokémon or new forms of Pokémon in the anime, as Mega Mewtwo Y and Genesect debuted in "Mewtwo - Prologue to Awakening" and Pokémon: Rocket-dan VS Plasma-dan! Nyarth and Achroma!! (2013), respectively. See more »

The film is all around good.
21 April 2014 | by Loz_cuttsSee all my reviews

I like the new Pokemon Genesect design. I also like how they have brought back Mewtwo. I think that the main story is new and very creative. I think that they have done some of the things the same like them being happy, then sad at the fight scene and last everyone happy in the end. that does tend to happen a lot. Though all this is good I think that the script writers do need to research on there Pokemon information. As Mewtwo already learnt his lesson, also Mewtwo didn't act like it knew Ash though it ha met him in the first movie. I think Mewtwo is a good Pokemon to introduce mega evolution as it is a legendary Pokemon so no one would think of it as a next evolution but as a special ability that Mewtwo has a legendary Pokemon. I think that maybe in X and Y though Ash might have figured out that it was a mega evolution when the professor introduced him to it.
