The homeland of the Genesect exists no more. After three hundred million years, the snowy mountains where the Paleozoic Pokémon once lived are no longer habitable—but not all of the race are actually extinct. Several specimens are still alive and desperate to find a new place to call home. Led by a Shiny Genesect and accompanied by the Legendary Pokémon Mewtwo, the vagabond creatures arrive in New Tork City.

Perceiving the city skyline as similar to their initial habitat, the Genesect take over the city center, driving out other Pokémon and threatening the existence of the local populace. On top of that, the Genesect leader confronts Mewtwo in a cunning, fast-paced duel that is bound to destroy the entire city—and it's up to Satoshi and his companions to save the city and reconcile the feuding Pokémon.

(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”, ...

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
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 ...
