Well now, a rare pleasure of starting a topic. Honestly I liked this one more than movie 5, but still out of 1-6, movie 2 remains my favorite. The ending made me tear up a bit, I have to admit.

Jirachi was cool and was likeable, Absol was a badass, and Groudon had uber hax. That about sums it up.

It was a nice touch to show us the previous legendary pokemon from the other movies.
Jirachi is so freaking cute.
This movie was overall very enjoyable, the villain was good too, but the only thing I didn't like, it's the mindless destructive final bad guy, that's a thing I disliked at the Celebi movie too.
Anyway great movie. 9/10

Pretty enjoyable movie. I loved that Salamence (one of my favorite pokemon) was in this. The animation of him flying around with Flygon was awesome.

The story was... meh. Not as great as Pokemon Movie 1 or 3. Jirachi is so cute though.

I liked this movie, and I'll admit i teared up at the end with the lullaby. The villains were relatable, and very likeable. Not one of the worst, but also not one of the best.

Not much happens during the first 55 minutes but i kida liked that portion. It's sad that this has the same issue that most pokemon films which is that the big climax at the end is boring.

Great visuals though.

Decent, but definitely the weakest of the first six. The plot was mostly an excuse for having Max and Jirachi be cute, and it didn't really get high stakes until the last half-hour. As well, the animation was a step down. There were good scenes but nothing like the gorgeous moments of the first five. But it was still fine. Max and Jirachi's bonding was often very cute, and there were a lot of sweet/cute moments between them. As well, May and Max had some very cute sibling bonding moments as well, I think it's nice to see some of that since there hasn't been much. There were some quite funny moments too, such as a nice burn on Jessie's hairstyle. And the last action scene was very intense, as per normal. So overall, it was fine.

This is one where I can understand why a lot of people say it's one of the weaker earlier movies, but I have a soft spot for it. I actually like the Groudon fight at the end, even if it's not the best climax really thinking about it, and I generally like the pokemon we get to see. But truthfully, a lot of what helps me hold a soft spot is the lullaby, or more specifically the English credits version. I love the duet between Japanese and English voices, and something about it just makes me relaxed and hopeful every time. Easily the best part of the movie for me
