The minister plans to use Magearna's mysterious power to take control of the mechanical kingdom.

"XY&Z -movie ver.-" by Satoshi (Rika Matsumoto)

It's been over a decade since I've watched a pokemon movie in the theatre - and it was great!

I expected there to be more of a focus on the forced mega evolutions. I know it is something that's touched on in the anime itself a few times, (at least I seem to remember a few episodes with that plot) and so it wouldn't be entirely new, but one thing they ...

Indeed, some bad Pokemon movies older than that used to be bad in diverse ways, but they're increasingly falling into a rut. Even neutral elements that used to be a backdrop or pure fluff feel tired now, as we've seen them so many times before. In this movie I rolled ...
