So with my 3DS broken I figured the best way to spend the 20th Anniversary of Pokémon was to watch a Pokémon movie. Fortunately last year’s film has finally been subbed. I wanted to watch this before making last year’s top 10 list but the subs weren’t available until earlier this week and there was no way I was going to watch the dub (can’t stand Ash’s current English voice).
This was a fun movie, it has some of the best action in any of the Pokémon movies so far. This is because as the image at the top of this article shows a lot of the biggest and most powerful legendary Pokémon are summoned. It’s pretty much a Pokémon kaiju movie.
As Pokémon movie plots go it’s pretty standard. Ash and friend meet the cute event legendary and the main antagonist is one of the bigger legendary Pokémon, it’s just this time they’re both the same Pokémon. The extra legendaries are great to see too, naturally the Hoenn trio are present for some ORAS promotion. Shiny Rayquaza battling against fellow third game legendaries Giratina and Kyurem is particularly exciting to watch.
I do wish Groudon and Kyogre had a bigger role,we haven’t really got a good Groudon Vs Kyogre battle in the anime yet. Still overall this was a great film, in fact…
It’s made its way into my Top 10 list from last year.
