Any parent who sits through the cartoon short featuring the nonverbal cuddly Pikachu that begins this movie deserves a purple heart.
January 1, 2000
Excruciating as it can be for parents to endure, it may be worthwhile for kids to see the movie.

Better than the first, but that's not saying much.

Cheap and disposable.
January 1, 2000
Saying that Pokemon 2000 is better than Pokemon is like saying that breaking both legs is better than having your tongue pulled out.
January 1, 2000
It's dull, sloppy, poorly dubbed and incomprehensible, and appears to have been animated by, well, no one.

The irksome puns (When a robot fish crashes, Meoth exclaims, "I hope we have carp insurance!") don't help.

If these shoddily animated, dialogue deficient, trite and mind-melting Pokemon movies are going to become an annual ritual, I may be forced to look for a new line of work.

The rudimentary animation resembles the TV show.

A few jokes and improved technical aspects can't quite counter overall boredom.

Probably about as good as cut-rate animation that seems to consist of screen savers can be.

A din that drowns out all adult howls.

January 1, 2000
A class-A migraine in soupy, gloopy Technicolor.
January 1, 2000
The film is littered with such snide indictments of the entire consumer-merchant Pokemon relationship that you'll never 'catch 'em all' with your youngster in quite the same way again.
January 1, 2000
The absence of a compelling villain translates into an absence of excitement.
January 1, 2000
Its Godzilla-inspired story lacks any of the charm that at least made those schlocky films palatable.

| Original Score: 2.5/4

Pikachu has very little to do with the plot, so die-hard fans may be disappointed. On the other hand, I daresay die-hard fans could not possibly be discriminating enough to notice, since most of them are still in diapers.

Some films are Adults Only. Others are Family Viewing. Some should be No Parents Allowed -- for their own sanity's sake.
