Synopsis

The story is set in Diamond Ore Country, of which Diancie is the princess.This is a country located deep underground, where the Pokémon Carbink live together in peace. The energy source of this country is a giant diamond called the Sacred Diamond, which can only be created by princess Diancie. However, the current princess doesn't yet possess the power to create such a diamond, and the current Sacred Diamond's power is soon going to run out, which would result in the end of the country. Diancie meets up with Ash and Pikachu, and set off together with them to search for the legendary Pokemon Xerneas, which possesses sacred power, but on the way, they find the cocoon where the Destruction Pokémon, Yveltal, who was said to have once destroyed life in Kalos, lies in wait.

Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction is the first Pokemon film in a while that features some fresh ideas and creative moments. In the vein of the last few, it's also an unambitious work stuck in a rut.

Near the end of the film, there's a great scene with Ash and five antagonists awaking Yveltal. The ensuing attempts to kidnap Diancie and run away from the harbinger of death are joyously written. These scenes make only a tiny portion of the film overall, but they stand out from the cookie-cutter writing we're usually treated with in these films.

The good thing about this one is that read more

Before I begin, I need to mention that this movie is probably not for everyone's tastes. You have to be a Pokemon fan to enjoy it. I'm writing this review and rating this movie in terms of how it compares to the other movies of the franchise.

I should also add that the trailer was quite misleading as it had a number of scenes I didn't see in the movie.

Story 5/10
The story isn't anything too special, as it follows the typical formula of the Pokemon movies.

Ash & co. meet Diance, a legendary Pokemon, whom they decide to help out. Diance is looking for Xerneas read more

*THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS*

Anyone who knows the Pokemon movies knows that a lot of them are very formulaic, but most still appeal to fans in one way or another. Diancie and the Cocoon of Destiny, however, is different, becoming most likely my least favourite Pokemon film yet.
I watched the Cartoon Network broadcast of the movie, so perhaps that's the reason why, but this movie felt very hurried, and it lacked impact as a result.

The story was very much to the formula of numerous other Pokemon movies. Meet new Pokemon -> Help it achieve its goal -> Uh-oh! Human baddies/Pokemon baddies -> Friendship prevails!

Overall 8/10
If you're not a Pokemon fan, then don't jump into the series watching the movies, because generally they're not first-time friendly
======
The plot of Diancie movie wasn't so amazing, but as the first XY series movie, it was good, but not more. Compared to Hoopa movie, it was better though.
Plot 6
The plot was ultimately rather cliche/overused as far as Pokemon movies go. But in this movie, it's the characters (that includes pokemon) that make it enjoyable.
Art 9
As part of the movies, it has more budget for effects, so the already good XY art was amplified to be better temporarily
Sound 8
I'm not sure I remember read more
