Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Will you grant me one final wish?

    Not the best Pokemon movie, but a decent watch that had nothing really wrong with it.

    The animation was the usual, as were the voices and sounds. The only thing that really bugged me was that Jirachi, a Pokemon constantly referred to as "he", had a girl's voice. Just a minor detail that threw me off a little.

    As for the plot of the movie, it was decent, although left a bit to desire. It didn't jump around randomly and wasn't confusing either, but it just seemed a little... simple. Between making a wish on a comet that appears for seven nights every thousand years and trying to take Jirachi back to where he belongs - and stopping a magician/scientist from grabbing Jirachi to awaken a legendary Pokemon of his own - there was nothing special in this movie.

    So, an okay movie, and perhaps my rating is a bit low, but it didn't have that something in it that would have made it better.moreless
  • pretty corney but this movie is not as worst as the show

    pokemon is one of my hated show it is probaly the worst show ever made but this movie is not as bad as the show but I have to say it is a little corney the storyline is alright but the problem of the movie is it gets a little boring and the charters are extremely corny like they are always are I have to give the movie 4.8 out of 10 pretty poor but fans of the show will like the movie.moreless
  • This movie is one of the best pokémon movies!

    This is one of the best pokémon movies! I have been an avid fan of pokémon and this movie really got to me and made me cry which is a great feeling even if you're an adult. The relationships explored in this movie are really well done. Whether you like the Butler and Diane love relationship or the Max and Jirachi friendship this movie is one pokémon movie you should watch. The animation is also done well by transitioning 2-D charecters with 3-D backrounds. (In case you are wondering they use an effect called deep canvas which is used by Disney. Miramax is a sub division of the Walt Disney Corporation which is how they were able to do this.) The music is also really quite touching and the first and so far only pokémon movie with an english to japanese transition. The story is really well done even though the story is presented in an extremely short eighty minutes which is sad because you'll never want the movie to end because it's so moving.moreless
  • awesome movie,sadly it was not released in theaters ,but if you watch it on a big screen tv,it still feels like your in theaters.

    It was a cool movie featuring jirachi as the 6th pokemon that could speak,besides lugia,mewtwo,entei,slowking,and meowth.

    It was awesome because it featured seviper and cacnea the new replacement pokemon for arbok and weezing,and featured cool 2d in 3d world animation,and the whole circus at night seemed so realistic,and absol i thought was a rare pokemon,but you could easily catch him in the pokemon ruby,sapphire,and emerald games. I`m glad they didn`t show the real groudon,because it wouldn`t of made a great villain,because the fake groudon had those absorbing tentacles coming from it`s side that made it scary and awesome. Plus featuring team magma was awesome too!moreless
