Editorial Reviews

Ash and friends set out on a journey to help a feisty Pokémon named Shaymin return to its friends, but instead get caught up in a struggle over the fate of the Reverse World—an alternate world that mirrors and distorts our own. The misguided scientist Zero would love to take control of the Reverse World and harness the power of its mysterious protector, Giratina—but Giratina has its own agenda! Caught in the middle, can Ash and Shaymin save the world from an epic disaster spanning dimensions?

Format: DVD
Note: This review is based off of seeing the movie on TV, when it was shown on Cartoon Network. As such, I can't comment on DVD features, only the movie itself.

The latest Pokemon movie continues a trend of steady improvement that the Pokemon movies have been showing for the past four or five. This movie, the eleventh, chronicles Ash, Dawn, and Brock's adventures with the legendary Pokemon Shaymin.

The story covers the existence of a Reverse World where the legendary Pokemon Giratina lives, and its connections to the real world. The villain seeks to exploit Giratina and those connections, theoretically for noble purposes; realistically out of sheer madness. The heroes and Shaymin get caught up in the mayhem. The story is not on its surface incredibly complicated, which is a plus considering the intended audience, but there are also some wider themes present if one is looking for them.

Visually, it's mostly standard anime fare; however, there are plenty of scenes that are quite impressive, especially the attacks of the Pokemon, the portals to and from the Reverse World, and one of the villain's weapons later on in the movie.

However, the movie started to feel like the Shaymin Channel after a while. If anyone wants to know what moves Shaymin can use and the details and limitations of Shaymin's Sky Form, all you have to do is watch the movie. I found it to be somewhat irritating after a while, simply because I would have preferred that they spend the time on the story or its characters rather than put so much of a focus on Shaymin, although that's merely a personal preference.

In summary, it's a fine movie, and certainly worth watching. It's not perfect, what with the over-focus on Shaymin. But it's easily deserving of four stars, and I think it to be an interesting movie for anyone, fans of Pokemon or not.

I'm a 41 year old anime fan and I loved this movie. I have watched it 3 times with my 12 year old son already and we both really loved it. The animation and graphics are awesome. I would recommend this movie for everyone whether you're an anime fan or pokemon fan.

I bought this dvd for my son who is 7 and who loves Pokemon. He's seen several other Pokemon dvd's (#'s 1-3 and 10). This is the eleventh in the series and he likes it the most - much more than the others. I've watched it with him and, from what I know of Pokemon, it follows an interesting storyline of Ash and his friends who are swept into the "reverse world" where Giratina lives. There is a new Pokemon introduced in this movie - Shaymin. She joins Ash's group or helps propel them into this latest adventure. There are a lot of other Pokemon who make appearances including Regigigas. There is some conflict and fighting that goes on but nothing too stunning or graphic. There are some themes involved such as teamwork, environmentalism, friendship, compassion, and challenging powerful misdirected characters. In one part Giratina is captured and is hurt, which generally isn't a good scene for youngsters, but with his friends help they help him escape and heal. Overall, I think it is a fairly benign movie with good messages. Maybe most important is that if you're a Pokemon fan then this is one to watch.

For those of you who love Pokemon this is a great movie. It has fun pokemon and a bittersweet story like most pokemon movies. This movie involves another Legendary Pokemon named Shaymin who is drawn into a battle with Dialga and Giratina and drags them into the reverse world. The event is seen by Zero the antagonist. Shaymin portals back to the normal world and runs into Ash Kechum and friends. Shaymin is a little pompous and pisses me off in the beginning but like most Pokemon movies he learns a live lesson that teaches him humility. Team Rocket tries to steal Shaymin only to have a portal to the Reverse World open and Ash and company as well as Team Rocket all get thrust in. Now they have to find their way back to the normal world after defeating Giratina and Zero who absorbed him while getting thrust back and forth multiple times through the portal between the Reverse World and the Normal World.

If you love Pokemon movies you'll love this one. Like all Pokemon movies it is a bittersweet story that teaches life lessons as it goes. It's got new fun and fascinating Pokemon, old friends are back like Ash, Brock, and Team Rocket. It makes you cry in some places and laugh in others. It is truly a journey of learning about ones self and what makes a person (or pokemon) courageous.

This is not a review on the quality of the purchase. The DVD was in perfect condition. This is a review on the movie itself.

The art - like the entirety of the Diamond and Pearl arc - is some of the best seen in the entire series. But if you're looking for a story, don't come here. This is up there with the worst offenders of the Pokemon movies that focus farrr to much on their "cute little legendary" pokemon which the entire movie's plot is structured around that it drags the entire movie down with it. Shaymin is insufferable, the Villain's logic is ridiculous, Regigas plays no signifcant role (nor does Dialga, but his presence in this film is explained more in the 12th movie, which is actually pretty good) and Giratina deserved more than what he got.

Plus some of the dialogue is rather awkward.

If you have kids who love Pokemon, just check your library to see if they have a copy before you spend your money. Cause even kids will realize when they're watching a bad movie.
