Still, there are some improvements here from the original anime. Visually, the animation is lovely to look at, with the glittering rainbow-coloured feathers of the mystical Ho-Oh character especially mesmerising. If only the story is as compelling.

The Pokémon anime has hardly adhered to the rules of the original games. But Pokémon: I Choose You! goes a step further, ending with a moment so bizarre that my entire theater howled in disbelief.

But there's still a bit of weirdness when it shrugs off decades of precedent, where even imagined and/or understood "talking" has never, ever been portrayed on screen.

... ultimately the material just doesn't work.

November 9, 2017 | Rating: 5.8/10 | Full Review…

It's never boring, but it is undeniably ridiculous. Kids will love it because it's Pokémon on the big screen, and aged fans will have a laugh seeing it with friends.

One of Ash's contemporaries describes his encounter with this rainbow-hued bird as 'a priceless experience.' Two decades' worth of vanished, irretrievable pocket money would say otherwise.
