The three Trainers have come to compete in the town's annual battle competition, and Ash manages to win with some unexpected help from the Mythical Pokémon Victini! It turns out Victini has a special bond with this place. Long ago, the castle watched over the Kingdom of the Vale, and the partnership between Victini and the king protected its people who lived there.

This Pokemon movie seems more thoughtful and less interested in flashy violence than others in the franchise.

Audience Reviews for Pokemon The Movie: White - Victini And Zekrom

Even though the Black and White series is the least favorable of the Pokémon anime, this first installment of the respective series' trio of films put itself apart from that thought by being the third best yet of the films, as well being the freshest restart. It seems the equally good, well-done dual films attempted to replicate the superior ninth entry's factors with success but stayed below. However, what was attached to the heartening warmth factor was putting in some actual sad moments as build-ups towards the pay-off, as it'd recaptured the cute factor seen in the Advanced series. Not only that particular factor being at its best, the animation and the protagonist's spotlight both were at their best as well, which makes this the best yet of its rating in the anime's film series. (A-) (Full review coming soon)

Kunihiko Yuyama lets the dragon force flow in Pokemon the Movie: Black - Victini and Reshiram.2 different versions of this film use 90 minutes to tell a similar story, which is quite fitting for the Pokemon franchise. The story is actually quite amusing in the early going. It's all fun and games with a number of Pokemon appearances and the opening credits popping in all the way at the 20 minute mark. The final third is where the film loses its steam. As expected it turns into a Pokemon legend fest while getting more dramatic in nature.Visually, the characters and Pokemon get the job done with the look and feel of a Japanese animation. The voice work is also nicely done, aside from the speaking voices of Zekrom and Reshiram.Pokemon the Movie: Black - Victini and Reshiram is easy to follow and finds its place in the Pokemon universe.

In some ways, it is more ambitious than previous films. The scale is grand as usual, and the effects are are all there, and having two different versions of the same film is something very fitting for Pokemon, of all franchises, to do. Even so, the story is so weak that even fans will be frustrated. There is no villain in this story, and the only thing being fought against is an inexplicable "Dragon Force" - no, not the band. Dragon Force in this movie is defined as "a plot device that does what it does to keep the story moving."
