A long time ago, the people of Camaron Palace found themselves on the brink of destruction. Fortunately, they escaped it when Sir Aaron, the True Guardian of Aura, saved them. He sacrificed himself to stop a war between kingdoms. From that day on, a tournament is held every year to commemorate his noble deed.

Satoshi, a budding Pokémon trainer from Kanto, manages to win the latest tournament and is allowed to wield a staff said to have belonged to Sir Aaron himself. Lucario, the Aura Pokémon—who is also the servant of the True Guardian—emerges from the staff. However, remembering his last memory of his master abandoning him, Lucario runs away in confusion.

Meanwhile, Pikachu, Satoshi's companion, is abruptly taken by a Pokémon named Mew to the legendary Tree of Beginning. Only Lucario knows the way there, but he is unwilling to trust humans after his master's betrayal. Even so, to save his partner, Satoshi and his companions must acquire all the help they need and travel to the Tree of Beginning, unfolding hidden truths from centuries ago.

Omg this movie wasn’t like a lot of the other Hoenn movies. It’s not Temple of the Sea worthy no, but it’s its own kind of movie.

The animation and overall visual of the movie is PHENOMENAL and unlike anything I’ve ever seen. The Tree itself is very interesting and I loved every bit of its lore.

And no spoilers but, there’s a certain element of dramatic irony in the story, but when the truth reveals itself to the characters, it becomes much more emotional.

Certain parts of the movie encore certain feelings: laughter, joy, anxiety, anger, and above all: PAIN AND SADNESS.

The eighth Pokemon movie begins with a sequence showing events from years ago, during a medieval looking era. It was when the main Pokemon of the movie were introduced, Mew and Lucario, and also Lucario’s trainer/master Aaron, a kind of knight from a palace or kingdom. At that time, there was a war happening between different kingdoms, using Pokemon and people as soldiers. At the end of the sequence, Aaron abandoned Lucario and his kingdom, because of the war. Unfortunately, this left Lucario sad and confused. That was the most interesting part of the movie, maybe a good idea for a spin-off about that time.

I'm note sure how I really feel about this one. I have many problems with it, but I can't say I think it's completely worthless. Mew was very cute in this and Lucario was actually cool. But I can't recommend this film. Bother only if you're an avid fan of Lucario or Mew.

Better to get the good out of the way. The soundtrack was fine, even if not on the level of the first, second or fifth film. Art, on the other hand, was not fine - it was much better. Just like in the last film, the artists did a great job. ...
