Owning this movie digitally really brings me back to my childhood years. I'll never forget how excited I was when my family and I went out to see this movie. I swear, the fact that knowing Pokemon since I first got into it is still pumping in my heart, and that is definitely something that will NEVER go away.
Regardless of the generation, I recommend this movie to EVERY Pokemon fan out there. Trust me, just watch it, and you will thank me later.
Brought back a lot of old memories from the past, and this movie still holds up. still has one of my favorite quotes from a movie "I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant; it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are."
This is by far the best children's movie I've ever watched. It has a very clear message of accepting both your own origin, no matter what it is, as well as accepting other people no matter where they are from in a way that emotionally sticks for life. No childhood is complete without this movie.
The box doesn't snap closed, so I'm glad I store my movies in a big case. Also during shipping it got broken so the CD doesn't snap into place. It has scratches but the movie works wonderfully. It includes the short of the pokemon vacation, and extra bonus features. I loved this movie as a kid, and still do. Great moral to the story, too. Kid friendly. So happy with this purchase!!
This is a true classic film, first of all. The giant that is Pokemon's first ever movie? Everyone should have this! I was fortunate enough to see it in theaters on November 12, 1999 when it came out in the USA when I was 4. Now I can have a nostalgia mindblow watching it again (and yes, I'll admit that I still cry when I watch it).
Recently, this DVD's price has gone WAY up. New, un-opened DVDs are rare now and are quite expensive. I have the VHS but I just bought the DVD finally, used "like new" around $35. My DVD's case is the cheap kind - mostly cardboard with only a plastic flap to seal it. That was a little annoying for the price, but the real jewel is the film, not the case.
Get this fast, folks! The price is going up, and rightfully so!
i saw this movie about 6, now at the age of 19 i'm still in LOVE, i can say almost every line, this brings back the best memories, this is when Pokemon was at its BEST, since the past few years have been nothing but crap, Pokemon - Mewtwo Vs. Mew is the best movie! Ash shows that no matter what you do to animals, their will always be someone that will take their side and that they will stand up for the animals, Ash sacrifices himself to save Mew and Mewtwo from each other, and then in return Mewtwo sees that Ash is friends with his Pokemon. Yes i still cry when Ash turns to stone, when i have kids this will be on of the movies that they will get to seen and not any of this Pokemon X and Y - the original is the BEST!!!
I loved Pokemon blue,red,and yellow as a kid. One day I saw that you could download the games to your PC using an emulator called VisualBoy Advance. So obviously the first thing I downloaded was Pokemon yellow, my favorite out of the three. Once I beat it, I was DYING to watch this movie again. I looked on Netflix, WASNT THERE. So i love VHS tapes so i decided I would buy it right off amazon. This was a great choice on my part. It is almost IMPOSSIBLE to find brand new VHS tapes anywhere anymore, but here is was. It is in perfect condition and it is one of the best movies I have ever seen. Even if it is a kid's movie, its great to live out your childhood again. Highly recommended by me.
