As they continue their journey through the Johto region, Satoshi and his friends visit Altomare, an island city that hosts an annual racing event called the Pokémon Water Race. While Takeshi and Kasumi are enjoying themselves, strange things seem to be happening to Satoshi—he somehow loses the water race, sees some women attack a girl with their Pokémon, and despite them saving her, the girl later denies ever seeing Satoshi and Pikachu before!

Fortunately for Satoshi, his confusion clears up as he learns that the girl he and Pikachu saved earlier was actually a Pokémon named Latias, who likes to disguise herself as her human friend, Kanon. Latias and another Pokémon, Latios, are known as the Eon Pokémon, as they inhabit and guard Altomare along with a mystical blue sphere called the Soul Dew. An ancient legend of Altomare is highly connected to the Eon Pokémon and the Soul Dew, and is well known among the locals—as well as among Latias' earlier assailants, the thief sisters Zanner and Lyon. As the thieves attempt to capture both the Eon Pokémon and the Soul Dew, Satoshi is forced to act in order to stop them from bringing disaster to Altomare.

This is one of my favourite movie of the Poke series.

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

Lets get the bad over with first. Continuing the now 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 ...

Mixed Feelings
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 ...
