This Pokemon movie is expertly animated. Battle scenes look amazing, and even the minor scenes show a lot of talent and realism.
The story is a good summary of some first-season highlights, along with a new arc that is fairly standard for Pokemon. By that, I mean it has a simple message aimed towards children, and it is reasonably interesting despite its simplicity. Some of the finer points may seem glossed over, but that's hard for to say because long-time fans such as myself know a lot of background behind much of the plot.
The weakest aspect of the movie is the characters. The film does a decent job with the three main characters, but the human villain is unrealistically one dimensional, and the mentor figure and Pokemon villain are poorly fleshed out or explained.
