Synopsis

The shapeshifting Pokémon Zorua and Zoroark are captured by a mysterious group intent on using their illusory powers for their own gain. They unleash Zoroark on Crown City, forcing her beforehand to take the form of Suicune, Entei, and Raikou, the guardians of the town.

As Satoshi and his companions visit Crown City to watch the much-anticipated Pokémon Baccer World Cup, they encounter Zorua, who managed to escape captivity. At the same time, Zoroark goes on a rampage, unaware of Zorua's breakout. Disguised as the Legendary Beast Trio, she starts destroying the city and terrorizing its inhabitants.

Will Satoshi manage to stop the deranged Pokémon before Crown City perishes? Will the sudden arrival of long-unseen Celebi change the outcome of the seemingly inevitable clash between Zoroark and the impersonated Legendary Beasts?

So here we go again, with yet another movie to promote the famous franchise of Pokemon and entertain us by throwing random villains, powerful Pokemon and some explosions. Being those the primary objectives, Phantom Ruler Zoroark actually does a decent job. As a matter of fact, no matter how hard you try, it's impossible to see a single attempt of making a movie which sustains itself; all for the sake of advertisement. So why bother writing a review? Exactly because of this uncompromised environment, allowing the viewer to simply erase everything in his mind and enjoy an equally uncompromised experience.

Quality-wise, the movie holds the tradition read more

Zoroark: Master of Illusions is a big comercial for the next generation of Pocket Monsters and a big celebratory party for Zoroark, Pokemon's new mascot. Unlike Lucario's film before it, which was an ambitious attempt at a grand adventure, Zoroark's work is mostly content with keeping itself inside one town. Everything lies in execution, though, so lets analyze the film.

The most notable thing that sold the film to the audience is the titular star, Zoroark. Being a furry bipedal creature with an elongated face and no legendary status, Zoroark has a few more than passing similarities with Lucario, the star of the 8th Pokemon film. read more

Over all, I was underwhelmed.

I'm a huge Pokemon fan but I was never really into the anime. It was always so childish, and I thought they could do so much more. However, the producers totally step it up in every way when making the movies.

The story is about Zoroark and how it is both a good guy and a bad guy. The sound and artwork is pretty good, but the story is too bland in my opinion and they are always making lame plot twists that could have been more interesting. The Pokemon battles left me bored, and the new characters were boring as well. read more

Another good Pokémon movie.

While Zorua bordered to annoying and still managing to be really entertaining too with its transformations, Celebi's role seemed kind of insignificant even though it was important. Zoroark was a bit hard to grasp, although still interesting.

The plot was quite effective, the art was good, and the presence of Legendary Beasts (Raikou, Entei and Suicune) definitely rocked.

This was the first time Unova Pokémon were introduced. It was kept vague, though, which is nice seeing as Ash's story is not taking him to Unova just yet.

The villain, Kodai with a fading ability to see his own future, was somewhat interesting, but the rest read more
