In this latest cinematic adventure, Satoshi meets the Mythical Pokémon Volcanion when it crashes down from the sky, creating a cloud of dust—and a mysterious force binds the two of them together! Volcanion despises humans and tries to get away, but it’s forced to drag Satoshi along as it continues its rescue mission. They arrive in a city of cogs and gears, where a corrupt minister has stolen the ultimate invention: the Artificial Pokémon Magearna, created 500 years ago. He plans to use its mysterious power to take control of this mechanical kingdom! Can Satoshi and Volcanion work together to rescue Magearna? One of the greatest battles in Pokémon history is about to unfold!

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

Story 8/10:
The story is your typical bad guy does something and it's up to Satoshi (Ash) to stop them - but I found it refreshing in that this time, Satoshi is inevitably dragged along to help Volcanion instead of following his own will - well, at first anyway.

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 ...

The start of this movie confused me. Could this one actually be good? Pokemon movies have degraded throughout the years and are now known for repetitive plots and themes.

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 ...
