A century ago, the power of a mighty creature known as Hoopa, who is capable of single-handedly defeating legendary Pokémon, was captured in a bottle by a lone traveler. The bottle was then hidden deep inside a cave in the desert, in the hopes that the darkness sealed within it would never see the light of day again.

Years later, a young man finds the bottle and breaks the curses surrounding it, releasing the power confined within it. Its contents take the form of Hoopa's shadow, and it uses its unbound power to shatter the bottle and prevent anyone from capturing it again. The shadow then goes on a rampage and attacks the original Hoopa, while both Pokémon summon other legendary creatures to aid them in their brawl. Satoshi—a budding Pokémon trainer from the Kanto region—and his friends are caught up in the crossfire, and must now work to stop the ravaging Pokémon, or face a devastating clash of legends.

Pokémon the Movie: Hoopa and the Clash of Ages is the whooping 18th movie in the Pokemon series. Sometimes it seems as if these'll keep coming out forever. And if they do, I guess one day I'll be forced to descent to the mortal plane and walk the waking world eternally; just to review these little fuc*ers. When you crank out sequels yearly, care and originality become a problem. Pokemon settled into a routine. Once every few years the team will push out something a bit better or if we're lucky, genuinely enjoyable.

Sure, we didn't have a legit, consistently good movie since The Rise read more

After recently rewatching the whole of Pokemon XYZ, I decided to also re-watch one of my favourite pokemon films to come out, Hoopa and the Clash of Ages. I haven't really seen many reviews posted on mal about this movie and surprisingly enough the positive voices about this film are absent in this scenario, so I'm going express my own viewpoint of the pros and cons, as well as a general idea of what the movies.

(Considering that this is one of my favourite pokemon movies, I apologise in advance if theres bias present on this take)

{{{There are spoilers if you are wondering}}}

Hahaha, now this was another childhood favorite of mine. It was so bad that it was good...
I haven't watched this in years, but I remember how right off the bat ash (or satoshi, i wasn't reading subtitles at the time) and his friends were chilling in a pool, in a desert, literally in the middle of nowhere. I'm not exaggerating, they were the only ones.
All of a sudden they and the water are teleported to hoopa and the person incharge of him (is he a girl? idk). because they (the person) asked for a cup of water. read more

I'll admit, it's been a long time since I've watched any recent Pokemon movies, but Hoopa and the Clash of Ages is definitely the worst out of all the ones I've seen.

There really isn't any story in this movie. Hoopa has an evil side that has to be sealed away, and then a bunch of legendaries are summoned for a battle. Seriously. That's the plot. I've just saved you an hour and fifteen minutes. The bare-bones plot doesn't hide the fact that this movie is basically advertising the games, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire specifically. All the legendary Pokemon that are summoned are ones you read more
