A decent movie, but definitely the weakest to this point.

The story was thin and lacked substance, it was mostly just Max and Jirachi doing cute stuff and it wasn't until the end that a clear conflict developed.

However, though yes it did focus on cuteness over story, it succeeded pretty well in that regard. There were Lots of cute, funny moments throughout, both between the bonding of Max and Jirachi, and Max and May's sibling relationship. The animation was great and there was once again a good share of lovely scenes, direction was nice, and when things got going, the climactic scene was the high standard i've come to expect by this point.

So yeah, it was the weakest movie yet, but it wasn't bad. Anyone who digs cuteness should get a kick out of this.
