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.
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.
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.
