During the infamous scene where Pikachu speaks English, it claims it doesn't like going in the Poke Ball because it doesn't want to leave Ash's side. This makes absolutely no sense, as Pikachu didn't like going in the ball even back at first, when it didn't even like Ash yet. See more »

It's decent. The animation is refreshing and elevated and the storytelling is what one is to expect from a Pokémon movie. It's not a ground-breaking concept nor is it a stand-out film in the tapestry of Pokémon, but it certainly fulfills its role as the 20th anniversary celebration. If you decide to invest time into the movie, make sure to stick around for the credits. In my opinion, the visuals and music found there is the best of the movie, making one wonder why an entire film had to be crafted just to have it's essence buoyed primarily by nostalgia. What this movie does successfully (that nostalgia) isn't necessarily hard for a 20-year-old childhood-favorite franchise to muster up. Perhaps they realized this and took the easy way out.
Nevertheless, expect to walk away with your heart full of childhood warmth and your mind forgetting the rest.
