Pokemon 3: The Movie (2001)
Critic Consensus: Critics say that the third Pokemon movie has a better plot than its two predecessors. This is not enough, however, to recommend it to those not already fans of the franchise.

Critic Reviews for Pokemon 3: The Movie
The animation doesn't display the kind of artistic advances that would compensate for the underdeveloped story.
Creepy, yes, and confusing as heck, but not half so fearsome as the three little words ('Until next time!') spoken by whom I don't recall.
Audience Reviews for Pokemon 3: The Movie
Okay, I'll admit, that this has the weakest characters, but it also leads as being the most eventful of the franchise. It has the most complicated plot as a scientist discovers symbols, linking them to rare undiscovered pokemon. Ante, being the first pokemon found, is probably the most interesting legendary character so far, but there is just something about these films that I find wrong. Movies can only go so far, and with pokemon, they can't even pass the first two with good story.
Better, but still weird and depressing
as with every pokemon movie up until destiny deoxys a masterpiece
