Movie Info

The sixth Pokémon feature may well rank as the most satisfying entry in the series because the filmmakers avoid the overblown threats of the earlier films. Ash and Brock are joined not by Misty, but by May and her little brother Max, on a trip to a festival. Butler the magician and his assistant Diane introduce them to Jirachi, a wish-granting Pokémon that emerges every thousand years, when the Millennium Comet appears in the sky. Max and Jirachi quickly bond. Butler tries to exploit the energy Jirachi receives from the comet to regenerate an extinct Pokémon. He accidentally creates a monster that Ash, Max, and Jirachi have to defeat, but it's not the kind of world-threatening menace that throw the previous Pokémon features out of balance. Adults may find the film tedious, but Pokémon-playing children will enjoy it. (Not rated, suitable for ages 6 and older: minor cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon

  • You miss the presence of classic characters like Brock or Misty, and their replacements, May and Max, get involved in really annoying situations. [Full review in Spanish]

    out of all the direct to video sequels this was by far the best, it had the best plot, best drama, best action, and best entertainment value

    This movie is the best out of all 6 movies released so far. It has everything the other Pokemon films had except its executed much better. The two new characters Max and May add something to this movie that the others lack... the sense of a real chemistry between characters. While the villain in this one is the stupidest of the series (I mean his name is butler and he is a magician, come on). The song at the end of the film is very beautiful and nice to listen too. Overall this film is one of the better animated releases this year, too bad it was released direct to video while the last Pokemon films got theatrical releases. I First Seen Pokemon Jirachi Wishmaker On TV And It Was Great. My Favorite Part Is Where Jirachi Disappears And Tells Max That They'll Always Be Together Forever. Pokemon Jirachi Wishmaker Is The Most Awesome Pokemon Film With The Adventures In The Hoenn Region And I'll Watch It Again Someday. Maybe When It Comes Out On TV Again. One More Thing, I Like That Part Where The Butler Realize Of What He's Done And Decides To Help Ash And His Friends Save Jirachi. Pokemon Jirachi Wishmaker Is The Best Pokemon Movie Ever And The First Pokemon Film Not Being Released In Theaters Like The 4 Previous Pokemon Films. The sixth Pokémon feature may well rank as the most satisfying entry in the series because the filmmakers avoid the overblown threats of the earlier films. Ash and Brock are joined not by Misty, but by May and her little brother Max, on a trip to a festival. Butler the magician and his assistant Diane introduce them to Jirachi, a wish-granting Pokémon that emerges every thousand years, when the Millennium Comet appears in the sky. Max and Jirachi quickly bond. Butler tries to exploit the energy Jirachi receives from the comet to regenerate an extinct Pokémon. He accidentally creates a monster that Ash, Max, and Jirachi have to defeat, but it's not the kind of world-threatening menace that throw the previous Pokémon features out of balance. Adults may find the film tedious, but Pokémon-playing children will enjoy it. (Not rated, suitable for ages 6 and older: minor cartoon violence) Ash, Pikachu and friends (minus Misty) were visiting a festival celebrating the appearance of a comet when they stumble upon a mysterious rock-like crystal...

    This was probably the best Pokemon movie. The music in the background was pretty good as well. Jirachi's voice fit it perfectly and the friendship between it and Max was nice.
