This movie is by far the best Pokemon movie. The first movies was really only a long episode of the TV series, but this one seems to be more cinematic. The story is better and the beginning short is much cooler. The graphics are improved a lot more, making it half-animation, half-computer-animation. The scenery was beautiful, even for an animation film, the entertainment level was way up there. The moral point, "If you work for it, your dreams can come true" is perfectly stated and shown in this movie.
