Pokemon - The Movie 2000 Reviews
Story wise , sorry to say but there is not much there .. it is not a story that will make you laugh , cry or want to see more , It is nevertheless a great adventure that the kids will enjoy !
I beleive it is worth to watch if it is only because Pokemon was such a huge thing for a it's generation. In a way for that generation , it might have been the one movie they watched in a loop 1000 times as kids
The one thing that kinda bothers me most is Misty. The fact that she is making her crush on Ash very obvious. If you like someone and you don't want to look jealous, DON'T SHOW IT. Another thing that bothers me is the use of the character Melody. The idea of her being put to the side and only being a plot convenience kinda saddens me. The could of at least made her look important to the story other than playing music.
But putting the bad things aside, this is still a good movie. Great music (aside from Weird Al), great animation and a great Nostalgic feel every time i'll watch it. Hears to 20 years of Pokemon!
Basically the story of Pokemon Trainer Ash Ketchum saving the world from an evil collector. The story is incredibly one dimensional & very weak in character development.
It will appeal to Die Hard fans of Pokemon but as a stand alone film it's quite average indeed. Every the animation is disappointing.
(Full review coming soon - with better wording probably)
