40 years ago, a Celebi was being attacked by a Pokemon Hunter. Luckily, a young boy named Sammy saved Celebi. Using its Time Traveling power, Celebi transported himself and Sammy 40 years into the future. There, Ash, Misty, and Brock assist Sammy to the healing lake in the forest so they can heal the wounded Celebi. Unfortunately an evil Team Rocket member, Viscious a.k.a. "The Iron Masked Marauder", tries to capture Celebi using his technology. As Ash and Co. try to get away from Viscious, they also run into Jessie, James, and Meowth, who also want to capture Celebi. Soon it becomes a race against time to get Celebi and Sammy back to the forest before Celebi is caught and is used to destroy the forest and themselves.

quite honestly, i know the pokemon movies have been getting some eh reviews but i personally think they are pretty good.i understand that they aren't directly related to the shows but that's okay in my book really, this one is no different. the story does remind me of princess mononoke but i rather liked the nature feel of the whole thing. i enjoyed the art, a new yet familiar design to how i remember pokemon to be. i liked all the voice acting and characters..well lets just say i got a surprise with one of them. i enjoyed the use of the original group and ...

Pokemon 4EVER is not only the worst English Pokemon title, but arguably the worst film in the series. Shallow in every way, there's not much good you can say about this film. Frankly, the only positive constant throughout the film is the gorgeous art. In a few of its quiet moments you really feel like you've been transported into a heavenly forest. There's also a fun sequence consisting of a battle against a pokemon trainer and the ensuing battle against time, as Ash runs to an already departing ferry.

On a more critical side of things, the cringeworthy introduction of the main antagonist is hard to ...

A BIG step down from the first three, but still generally enjoyable overall.

The main problem was that the generic "guy tries to capture Pokemon" story was nowhere near as interesting as the stories of the first three. Though halfway through, with Celebi being possessed, things did get real, and it got interesting from that point.

And aside from the weak story, it was great. Sam and Ash's friendship was really cute, and there was a lot of nice, cute bonding moments. The animation was beautiful, and there was a number of drop-dead gorgeous scenes. Celebi was very cute, and there was some good humor especially ...
