Long ago, on an island called Altomare, there lived an old man and woman. One day, the couple found two small children lying on the shore, badly wounded. The couple took them in and took care of them, and the children quickly recovered. But then, the island was attacked by monsters. Within moments the island fell into the monsters' wrath. Next, before the old man and lady's eyes, the children who they had taken care of transformed into the Eon Pokemon, Latios and Latias. They called their family from the sky. They came, and carried a stone with them containing the power to force the monsters away. This gem was known as the "Soul Dew." Peace returned to the island; however, later in the present, a criminal duo—Zannâ and Rion—us seeking Latios and Latias in order to take control of the Soul Dew. Taking a short break in Altomare, Satoshi befriends Latias and is now dragged into the situation helping to save Altomare from becoming swallowed up by destruction again.

This is one of my favourite movie of the Poke series.
I just love the story, the music, the art. The storyline is very nice written, the characters are ofc what we are used to :) I prefer the "older" pokemon storyline, and i think this was the last one which made me whatch it without going away from it in the middle.

Another Pokémon movie with a decent storyline, beautiful art, and our familiar characters.

Misty and Brock didn't get all that much screen time in this one since the plot revolves around Ash and his adventures with Latias and Latios.

Another refreshing change was that besides our familiar Team Rocket (Jessie, James and Meowth), we had another team (Annie and Oakley), who had more style than our usual arch enemies, and they actually managed to cause some real mayhem.

The plot was okay, but I felt that it lacked a little in focus and inventiveness; it seemed same things/themes were repeated, and although the ending was pretty good, the read more

POTENTIAL SPOILER ALERT (Summary & thought: Good movie):

I think this is a pretty good one, although the ending is kind of expected. I like this pair of legendary pokemons and I personally like Latios more than Latias. I love the way he protects his sister. Moreover, this pair of pokemons are really loyal to the city. They will sacrifice themselves to protect the city and it's really beautiful to see this kind of loyalty. And it's kind of sad too because it somehow makes me feel that they were born to protect the city. =(

Pokémon Heroes: Latios and Latias is a strange film. Unlike the older films which intertwined the story and characters, this movie (un)intentionally separates the two. Thus, when talking about why this film is good, we're talking about a completely different film than the one we have in mind while discussing the bad.

Lets get the bad over with first. Continuing in the grand tradition of rushed and poorly thought out plots, here we have a machine which lacks any real gounding in the real world and is bound only by the power of plot necessity. There are two big questions which arise from watching the movie read more
