Synopsis

The beautiful Alamos Town is home to a pair of century-old structures known as the Space-Time Towers, built by the architect Godey to play orchestral music in the area. The towers are also home to the Alamos Town Contest Hall, which is the next destination for Hikari, Satoshi, and Takeshi in their journey through the Sinnoh region. A woman named Alice and her partner Chimchar are happy to guide Satoshi and his friends through the town and its hallmarks.

But the tour is suddenly interrupted when Alice's friend Tonio notices a wave of dimensional disturbances throughout the town—all of which is blamed on an ominous Pokémon named Darkrai. The space-time disturbances continue to intensify as two legendary Pokémon, the Temporal Pokémon Dialga and the Spatial Pokémon Palkia, appear to duel each other, isolating the town and everyone present in it from the world into another dimension!

As he learns that this event was foreseen long ago, Tonio finds that his great-grandfather left behind a way to stop the dueling Pokémon. Will Satoshi and his friends be able to use this last resort to save Alamos Town from vaporizing between the dimensions?

This Pokemon Movie, I'd have to say was good for the most part.

-Story-
The story plot was FAIR. When I originally heard about the movie, I thought it would be much much much different. Since I've been a Pokemon Fan for most of my life, I was expecting the movies to have much more of a Climatical part. It did not have a true "climax" per se. It was an average movie with an average storyline.

-Art-
The art was nothing special. The best art I saw was at the very end. The art was just as if it was a regular old Pokemon episode.

-Sound-
Sound was my favorite read more

The Rise of Darkrai relies on a big number of epic movie tropes nestled in live action. The film also surprises due to its clear cut structure and by the books approach to various small details. Something Pokemon were ignoring and more often than not, struggling with, ever since the fourth film.

Two guys will compete for a girl and it will be shown, not told. The resolution will be clear as the loser stumbles in the background. No exposition needed. Don't get me wrong, by no means is this a masterpiece. What it is, is a highly polished work following all the standard conventions read more

This is where the dip in quality for pokemon movies begins.

I'm not saying Rise of Darkrai is a bad film, far from it, this movie does a lot of things right. Like not having so many annoying characters, the animation is great, soundtrack is awesome, as well as the story and characters are pretty consistent.

Although I wish Team Rocket wasn't in the film as they served no purpose other than being annoying cut away gags to pad out the film's runtime. They do literally nothing other than being the annoying caricatures they have been since the end of the gen 3 anime.

The basic summary read more

It’s everything you’d expect out of a Pokemon movie - so I think at least! But still, I was quite surprised about the movie and I consider it as one of the best I've seen (even tough I'm not very into it anymore)

Well, let us start with the Story.
It's always interesting - especially in the case of Pokemon - how they made it so far! At that time over 400 Pokémons - and the Franchise seem to be still growing!
This movie I just watched because I liked (and I still do so) the 4th Gen. very much! And that's why I came to watch it! read more
