Honestly I find this to be the best of all of the Pokemon movies. And after this, well, they just steadily got worse and worse.

The story was gorgeous, and the music was gorgeous!

I'm giving it 10/10 because, well. That's how I feel about it.

I'm not one to give away spoilers but let's just say this one has to do with the legendary birds and gets really heated and epic. Plus, who doesn't love Lugia? AND LUGIA'S VOICE. Might as well have been Morgan Freeman (in the dub, that is. And I'm not one who usually even likes dubs. Of course I was a read more

Probably one of the best Pokémon movies out there. The story was brilliant, an amazing job for Lugia’s voice (dubbed), the art was cool, and all in all, this is one of my favorite movies in the entire series!

And then there’s the Guardian’s song. It made my neck hairs stand, and all I could do was gaze at the television screen. Absolutely majestic.

POKEMON!!!!
