Special Features


Editorial Reviews

Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, the eighth Pokémon movie, ranks as one of the best features in this popular franchise. Director Kunihiko Yuyama and writer Hideki Sonoda sensibly keep the adventures and threats to a scale that's appropriate for the characters. (The first movies put the world at risk, and while Ash Ketchum is a good kid, he's not someone who can credibly save the planet.) Ash, Brock, Max, and May journey to Cameron Palace for a tournament that celebrates the valor of Prince Aaron, who saved the realm from destruction 1,000 years ago. Ash and Pikachu win, but the mischievous Mew kidnaps Pikachu, whom he's befriended. Prince Aaron's Pokémon companion Lucario awakens from the victor's staff to lead Ash and the gang to the Tree of Beginning, a mountain that is also a living entity. Ash risks his life to rescue Pikachu, proving the depth of their friendship to Lucario. The film includes lots of CG effects, most of which work well with the drawn animation: the earlier Pokémon films tended to look like two different movies spliced together.

The two-disc set also includes The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon: A 10th Anniversary Special. In this 40-minute adventure, Dr. Yung invites Misty and Ash to take part in a special tournament on his new battle system. Yung creates formidable Mirage Pokémon from raw data, culminating in a super-version of Mewtwo, the powerful psychic Pokémon from the first features. Once again, friendship and kindness triumph over greed and arrogance, although the special ends with the words, "To be continued..." (Unrated, suitable for ages 8 and older: cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

The world of Pok‚mon has many legends, but the people of Cameron Palace believe in one very special tale: the legend of the Aura Guardian. Long ago, a hero and his Pok‚mon, Lucario, saved the world from destruction--but can it be true? Ash and his friends find out for themselves when Lucario is awakened and Pikcahu disappears! With Lucario's help, Ash sets out on a journey to find Pikachu, a journey that leads him to a mystical tree and the Legendary Pok‚mon mew! The future of a world and the fate of Ash and Pikachu will depend on the power of friendship between humans and Pok‚mon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding value, two movies for the price of one! September 25, 2006
This DVD set is a great buy. I'm glad I was able to get Master of Mirage Pokemon on DVD. I had wanted to see it again but didn't think I would be able to buy the DVD since I do not approve of the new voice-actors. But Master of Mirage Pokemon came "free" with Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, so I couldn't be happier.

Not only that, but Lucario and the Mystery of Mew is one of the best Pokemon movies ever! I was surprised, because the last two Pokemon movies have been among the worst ever, in my opinion. Jirachi Wishmaker was the worst movie by far, and Destiny Deoxys was nothing special either. I thought the great, classic, well-directed and well-done Pokemon movies of the past (my favorites are Pokemon Heroes, and the first Pokemon movie, but 4-Ever was also quite good) were done. But Lucario and the Mystery of Mew returns to the old formula that I enjoy so much. The viewers, once again, are treated to the defining sub-opening battle sequence involving Ash with the credits overlayed and the American theme music of my favorite parts of all the Pokemon movies (except Wishmaker which removed this sequence). The dubbing is fantastic as well, by the original voice actors, and with care put into it (unlike Wishmaker, which was done cheesily and in a hurry). This movie succeeded in rekindling my interest in Pokemon.

Lucario and the Mystery of Mew is also one of the longest-running Pokemon movies ever at 1 hour and 40 minutes, further increasing the value of this DVD set. Recommended to all Pokemon fans, even those who have not watched Pokemon in some time.

EDIT: I found out this is unfortunately a glitched disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! September 21, 2006
This movie gets 5 stars because it's the best one yet and I love the fact that Mew is in it because Mew is one of my favorite pokemon. You get a free promo Mew card with the DVD, plus a mini comic book and you get another DVD too, which both the movies are good. Any pokemon fan would love this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars One interesting monster January 19, 2007
If there's one thing I think has always worked for the Pokemon movies, it's their multiple introductions. For instance, Lucario and the Mystery of Mew starts with some historical background on Lucario, and his separation from his trainer. After this intro, there's the title intro, followed by an introduction to Ash and his friends as they enter their next adventure.

It seems that Lucario has passed his animosity towards his former trainer onto Ash, who has a similar aura. But, he has to team up with Ash in order to retrieve Pikachu, who's been abducted by Mew.

For the rest of the story, you'll have to watch the movie, or read someone else's review. One thing I'll say about Lucario is that there's something about him that reminds me of a character from a Sega game. Color him red, and you'll know what I mean. I think that's why I find him so interesting.

This package comes with another movie on a separate DVD, Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon. This is another movie where we get to see Mew again, as well as Mewtwo. I'm not sure why this is, but they have a whole new cast of voice actors for this movie. Even Misty, who makes an appearance in this movie, has a different voice. Those who are used to Ash, Brock, Max, May, Professor Oak, Jessy, James, Meowth, and Misty from earlier movies and episodes, such as I am, will wonder why their voices have changed so suddenly in Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon. For the familiar element of adventure, this isn't a bad movie. It's just strange to have Ash not sounding like Ash.

I, for one, would definitely recommend Lucario and the Mystery of Mew over Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon, if for no other reason than familiarity with the voices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pokemon Lucario and The Mystery of Mew August 2, 2006
By Kevin
I love Pokemon Movie 8 - Lucario and The Mystery of Mew!
I can't wait for this movie! I have been wating for this movie for a year! The movie is manily based on the brand new Pokemon Lucario. There are also the other pokemon and their names are MimeJr.,Weavile,and Bonsly. Mew is also in the movie. It all starts when the greens and the reds are fighting a war and Aaron and his pokemon Lucario must stop it by going to the orgin tree. Aaron is on his Pideots back as it is fiying to Orudoran castle Lucario jumps boulder to boulder he sees pokemon in green aromor and pokemon in red aromor fighting each other. Lucario touchs a flower and speaks to Aaron who is at Orudoran Castle standing next to Queen Eileen then he hops on his Pideot and meets Lucario. Then just as Lucario is going to the orgin tree Aaron throws his staff at Lucario is tured into aura energy and sealed in Aarons staff. Then Lucario watchs Aaron go to the orgin tree. Lucario watches as Aaron go in the orgin tree the it starts to glow. Eileen watchs the orgin tree glow. Then it stops glowing. Aaron was never see again. Supposdely the staff contaning Lucario was found. Said a mother reading to her little daughter the Legend of Aaron and Lucario in a small town next to the Orudoran Castle. Ash,Brock,May,and Max are walking along a bridge to Orudoran castle, they are wearing there regular clothes. After they went though the bridge they change into different clothes. Then Ash learns of the Wave Guiding Hero tornament. He enters the tornament and wins it. Then just as Ash is celebrating his win Mew grabs Pickachu and flies a way. Then Ash learns that Mew took Pikachu to the orgin tree. Ash travels with Lucario and co. to the orgin tree. As Ash and co. are traveling Kid gets traped in a red glop. She sends out her two Weaviles.
