Just a bit of warning. If you watched the first Pokémon movie (especially if you were a kid and consider it a significant part of your childhood), do not watch this. Trust me. This is pretty much just to reveal Mewtwo's new "Awakened Form".
I'll begin with the positives. The soundtrack is consistent with the cheerful, jaunty tunes and exciting battle music that people have come to expect from Pokémon. The art is pretty much the same as always, so no real problems there. The problems lie with...well...everything else.
The storyline directly and utterly contradicts the story established in Pokemon: Mewtwo no Gyakushuu (more commonly known as "Pokémon: The First Movie) in terms of everything from location to the animation sequence for Mewtwo's escape from the lab.
Character-wise, there is absolutely no development (though in all fairness not much can be expected from what is essentially a one-episode special) nor are the characters interesting in any way. The villain is utterly generic and the main characters aren't much better.
Mewtwo was utterly butchered in virtually all aspects. Remember the old Mewtwo, the emotionally scarred, ruthless, genocidal badass? Well, in this movie "he" helps humans and their Pokémon by saving them from various wilderness mishaps (falling into a chasm, forest fire, etc). By the way, did you notice those quotation marks around "he" just now? No, that wasn't a typo. To top it all off, Mewtwo now has a female voice. Keep in mind that up until now, Mewtwo has always been voiced by a male actor.
All in all, this is really just a preview to advertise the 16th Pokémon movie and comes across as lazy and downright insulting to long-time Pokémon fans. read more
