The Fury of Zoroark Has Been Unleashed!

The Pokémon Baccer World Cup.

It is the most anticipated event of the year, and as hundreds flock to Crown City to watch the exciting competition unfold, Ash, Pikachu, and his friends encounter a mysterious new Pokémon they have never seen before.

But when the three Legendary Pokémon Raikou, Entei, and Suicune suddenly arrive and begin rampaging through the streets, it’s up to Ash and his companions, along with their new Pokémon friend Zorua, to uncover the secret behind the immense and powerful forces at work.

What strange and dangerous powers are afoot in Crown City? Why did Celebi suddenly return after vanishing for twenty years? And why is the mighty Zoroark unleashing its fury upon the town? The quest for these answers leads down an uncertain path filled with peril—can Ash and his companions find enough courage, strength, and friendship to unearth the mystery in time to save Crown City?

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

Ash and friends reappear in yet another Pokemon movie, but still retain their usual bad qualities.

Story: Absolutely dreadful. They featured Pokemon that were going to be the main focus of the film, yet only one of them was of any importance. The story was very underdevloped and was never fully explained very well.

Art: The effects for attacks were pretty good in terms of showing off. The Pokemon designs aren't too bad either, but still nothing too fancy.

Character: Pretty much no character development is made much. They throw in all the new characters that shown up in the movie and they just do much except read more
