Along with Ash, Pikachu, and the rest of the gang, Sammy and Celebi encounter an enemy far more advanced than the hunter left behind in the past.

On this disc, the short that ran before the film at the theater is only included on the disc as a special feature, unlike the first three movies, where you were forced to watch the short before starting into the movie. The short included on this release is "Pikachu's PikaBoo."
The next extra on the DVD is an audio commentary version of the film. This is followed by the "Pokemon 4Ever Trivia Game." For this extra, you use the remote to select the best answer to each of seven questions. The game appears to cycle through sets of questions, and the cycle goes in the same order each time you put the DVD into the player. If you get a question right, you see a clip of the film that is connected to the question. If you get a question wrong, you see Pikachu appear on the screen, with the wrong "WRONG" written underneath it.
Next is an extra labeled, "Animation Progression," and there are four shots included: Forest Fly Through, Dust Storm, Battling a 3D Foe, and Climbing Ivy. You use the angle button on your remote to switch from stage to stage in each sequence. This particular feature was actually rather cumbersome.
This DVD also included both the domestic trailer and the Japanese trailer for Pokemon 4Ever; however, there are no subtitles provided for the Japanese version. "A Sneak Peek at the Next Pokemon Movie" is the Japanese trailer for the fifth Pokemon film; again, there were no subtitles, so you couldn't understand anything that was being said. The lack of subtitles for the Japanese trailers makes it frustrating for the children watching this DVD, because they can't understand anything. There are also DVD-ROM features included.
Overall, Pokemon 4Ever is a good film, and this DVD is actually one of the better DVD releases for the Pokemon films. There were actually some worthwhile special features included. If you're a Pokemon fan, you should really have this Pokemon film in your DVD collection.
The reason I give it 4 stars instead of five is because I paid an extra 4 dollers to buy a brand new copy so I would get the Suicune card. I got a brand new copy, opened it...no card. I regretted paying an extra 4 dollers, other than that it's a great movie.
Celebi is so cute and the Villan love his pokemon . good movie .
In my opinion, this is where the Pokemon movies started going downhill. It wasn't bad enough that the brains behind the franchise keep making more Pokemon, most of them ridiculously stupid. Then they tried to force "light" and "dark" Pokemon on us, which is very superfluous. But they keep making these super powerful legendary Pokemon, and then putting them in these movies in situations where they seem so weak. Why? I don't get it.
They should make these movies where the focus Pokemon kicks butt. Like the first few movies. Mewtwo, Lugia, they were beasts. Even Entei represented well. That's what they need to get back to.
Maybe I'm being a little overly analytical. After all, it IS a kid's movie. But still, you can make it kid-friendly and still make it entertaining for the adults as well.
