The legendary Renegade Pokémon, Giratina, encounters the Temporal Pokémon Dialga by a lake and successfully manages to drag Dialga into its home—an alternate dimension separate from the normal world. But a small green Pokémon gets gotten dragged in as well—and though it somehow escapes, Dialga uses this opportunity to escape as well after preventing Giratina from chasing after it.

After accidentally ruining Satoshi and his friends' picnic, the green Pokémon is taken to the Pokémon Center where it is treated for injuries and introduced as Shaymin, the mythical Gratitude Pokémon. Using telepathy, Shaymin demands that Satoshi, Hikari, and Takeshi take it somewhere. But before they can find out where to go, the group find themselves being pursued by both Giratina and a strange man named Zero—both in search of little Shaymin! Will Satoshi and his friends be able to find Shaymin's desired place while keeping themselves out of danger?

As the 11th movie to come out for Pokemon, I seriously think this one higher than recent ones (Manaphy's film coming to mind). I found that not only did it achieve what it was meant to (admittedly, to advertise Platinum) but gave a great story while doing so, though it had some pitfalls here and there.
To be clear, I find my enjoyment score biased on behalf of Giratina. ^^;

I found that the story itself was smooth, and the fact that is brought in some information from the 10th movie (Dialga vs Palkia vs Darkrai) was great, and showed continuation (unlike many of the movies, read more

As a childhood pokemon fan I was actually excited for this movie, especially when I heard it was going to deal with platium but also be a sequeal to the rise of Darkrai. Well it actually wasn't that good and only mentioned it'd prequal once or twice. Sure the animation and characters were all good, but the story bored me even though it was creative. It had a sort of "Protect the earth" kind of vibe to it and even though I'm a green person I'm getting pretty sick of the message here. Now you might all hate me for saying this, but everyone read more

One thing Pokémon: Giratina and the Sky Warrior does really well is making us want to travel with Ash and Shaymin to the flower fields. Too bad the movie doesn't let us.

I've got two main gripes with this one. The far bigger one is Zero himself. The villain in this feature is an overly designed, white haired, badly tempered wunderkind. Impossible magical technology and fantastical flying CGI fortress included. Hastily screwed backstory and inane dialogue, too.

Gripe number two is the lack of a character arc for Shaymin. The film essentially starts as a completely different beast than it ends up being. We're treated to a read more

Reverse World is by far one of the most fascinating things about the whole Pokémon world; the design, the rules, its Ying and Yang position with the real world... truly awesome.

Giratina, one of the new legendary Pokémon who appear in this film, wasn't bad either, and getting a glimpse of Dialga, one of my favorites, didn't make the experience any worse (although there was a bit of a plot hole there in the end).

Shaymin, however, was one of the most annoying characters by far in the history of Pokémon. Perhaps intentionally so, who knows... Sure, there was comedy there, especially between Shaymin and Ash, but read more
