(Note: going off the English dub.)

I feel I should start off with a warning about the following review because I have some strong feelings about this film that can come off like a rant. But a warning can really only say so much because even after everything has cooled off from the past year/year-and-a-half, the mere thought of this film and the history behind it still irks me to my core. There is a reason this film is controversial, and even if people do not care about it, even going so far as to say “It's Pokémon/for kids, stop putting so much thought into it”, read more

Genesect and the Legend Awakened is the worst thing that happened to Pokemon since the mass seizure in first season of the show. Usually I make sure my reviews have a certain structure, but I just want to get this one over with.

Why does Mewtwo look deformed in half the film? His muzzle looks like a Lucario ripoff. Making him look worse than in the first film is really insulting. He's a female now. A different personality, a different voice actor, different role. First film was retconned. Fuck you pokemon film company.

Genesect are the most unlikable bunch of antagonists in any Pokemon film. Except maybe read more

The Pokémon franchise has the track record of playing the amnesiac game whenever a new season starts on TV, but so far the movies have done a good job of remembering their facts. Not this time: Ash has actually met Mewtwo twice by now, in two separate movies, but unless there are two Mewtwos that were created in Team Rocket labs, Ash has no recollection of meeting this one - nor does the sex-changed-Mewtwo recall meeting Ash and learning some valuable lessons of humanity and acceptance.

That aside, this movie is a somewhat touching tale of a group of revived Pokémon, Genesect, who are brought to read more

Ive been watching Pokemon movies from movie 1, and I know that Ash and Mewtwo have a lot of connection going on. When I first saw the trailer, I was anticipating a sort of reunion for those two, but this movie did not even do that. Mewtwo and Ash have absolutely no memory of meeting each other, so I was very disappointed in that aspect.

As a old Pokemon fan, this movie was not that great compared to the other movies back then. I would also like to add in that the drawing for Mewtwo is very disappointing compared to his original look back in movie read more
