Haven't seen a thread for this yet so I thought I might as well start it. If it doesn't belong in this category, feel free to move it but it feels like it belongs in the Anime board

Got any Pokemon movies that you loved, any favorites? Just place your thoughts on your favorite Pokemon movies here.

I'll place some thoughts once discussion is going. Have fun!

I loved Arceus and the Jewel of Life. Thought it was pretty cool that the plots of Rise of Darkrai, Giratina and the Sky Warrior and Arceus Jewel of life were connected. Plus Arceus was great.
Celebi Voice of the Forest too, especially the scene were Celebi "died" and Sammy's identity too.
And of course, Pokemon heroes. I loved Latias and Latios, both cool and cute.

My favorite movie is Giratina and the Sky Warrior. Remind me with Shieldon as my favorite Pokèmon. This movie story line not bad for me ^w^

It also continuously made me wonder if Shaymin is male or female....because in land form (s)he acts more like a girl, unlike in sky form.

The first movie. Saw it when I was 9 I think, got the mew card and all that. The third one is also up there for me, Charizard fighting Entei = Epic.

First Movie, by far! The storyline actually has a theme that gives pokemon the real serious tone in how its morality is just like what is seen in our normal world. Plus ash dies in it so..... It's awesome!:)

I think my favourite movie is the 5th movie. The plot was very interesting, and the relation between Latios and Latias was so beautiful.

Shaymin is genderless, in the movie I believe it's voiced by a female, genders don't determine the personality of a species and how they act for example, though I'm a boy I tend to be a little timid in the morning, but at night I feel that I have a lot more confidence and motivation (I'm like the exact opposite of a shaymin xD)

Anyway for my favorite, I have to say Rise of Darkrai. Darkrai had an amazing role, the tension at the end of the movie didn't feel like any other, and I always love music on top of that, being applied to the actual story, Oracion will always bring back instant memories just by hearing it.

There are a lot of other movies that I really enjoyed as well, Power of One, Pokemon Heroes, Giratina and the Sky Warrior, Arceus and the Jewel of Life, and others.

My favorite is either the First one, with Mewtwo & Mew orr the Third one with Entei and the Unown.

Mewtwo Strikes Back and The Power Of One - I liked the focus on the Legendary birds in the second film and the first one has too many epic waves of nostalgia, plus for me a great storyline.

The 2nd one was the best. I always loved that one the most. Lugia is badass.

Also the first one is good. The others arent that good.

I think that the first two movies would be my favorite out of all of them. I remember seeing the first one in theaters for my birthday when I was younger, and I got Pokemon 2000 on VHS for my next birthday. I think I ended up watching it a good 40-50 times, and I still have it put away in my basement somewhere.

I'll throw in Jirachi wish maker. It was a pretty good movie, plus the ending song is very nice.

-Pokémon 2000
-Pokémon 4
-Pokémon Destiny Deoxys
-Legendary Birds Trio
-Rayquaza vs Deoxys

Pokemon 3 is still my favorite !
My favorite would be the underwater battle between Misty and Molly, where they can breathe underwater.
And all the crystals , it's really really beautiful !

The Darkrai movie is now my favorite simply because of Oracion:

From when I was younger, Pokemon Heroes was definitely my favorite.

I love Lucario's movie, Manaphy's movie Arceus' movie and Victini's movie.
Lucario's movie - simply because of Lucario, thanks to this, he became my no.1 Pokémon.
Manaphy's movie - Manaphy. The cute thing was irresistible =D And how they portraited Satoshi's and Haruka's relationship there was marvelous.
Arceus' movie - Arceus, Arceus, Arceus, nuff said.
Victini's movie - Firstly it's a reason why I love BW, Aoi Yuuki. Secondly, Victini. I really love the cute legendaries :D And the plot, characters... everything seemed different. Like... more mature if I were to describe it.

I honestly loved the first two.
The First Movie:Mewtwo Strikes Back.- That was one of the best movies I've seen.EVER. It was so heart wrenching seeing Pikachu crying, the tense battles between real Pokemon and clones... The storyline really was well thought out and I have watched it a good 100 times.

Pokemon 2000- The Power of One.
Here, my favourite legendary Moltres gets to shine. I loved how they easily dodged that horrible man who tried capturing them and how Ash and his friends attempted to stop him. Also it introduced some of my other favourites,Ho-oh and Zapdos xD.

I like the majority of the Pokemon movies, but again I'd have to say the first Pokemon movie. It's just got this vibe to it that makes you feel like you can really enjoy the movie, and also it reminds you of so much of the beginning of Pokemon. Though I think the newer Pokemon movies are much more action packed for Pokemon movies.

I've only watched the first three movies and the one with Deoxys as a kid.

I recently started watching all movies from the beginning on Japanese, and currently watched only the first two. Can't say I liked them. The only thing I liked were Team Rocket in the second movie and Kasumi's tsundere side in the same movie.

My favorite movie Mewtwo and Mew's figth.

October 13th, 2012, 4:14 AM
My favourite is The Power of One followed by Lucario and the Mystery of Mew. I just love Lugia, and the legendary birds of Kanto. And I found the story in LATMOM just so emotional (seriously, I bawled like a baby when Lucario... you know - I don't want to spoil anything). So yeah.

Least favourites would be... Spell of the Unown 'cause I used to like Entei but that one annoyed me, Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea 'cause as much as I like Pokémon Rangers I just didn't get into the story on that one, andd.... Arceus and the Jewel of Life 'cause Arceus was just a douche for most of the film.

Okay, I think these movies are hit/miss. They have okay to typical storylines, but I think the animation is a teeny bit better than the TV series.

I remember the first one, and I wanted to see it immediatly. I saw it on the day after it opened in theaters and I liked it. I went to see it again. I think it was decent. And let me tell you that the whole "Fighting is wrong" bit near the end had little impact on me.

I still like it. As for the others, well, it's a hit/miss in my opinion. The second movie was decent and fun to watch. But the whole saving the world part near the end kinda dissapointed me.

The third one was okay, but there were some parts, especially with Molly's wishes was kind of weak and childish. But at least the whole crystalization effects was kind of creative.

The fourth one was okay. And it was the second pokemon movie I went to see in theaters (I missed out on the previous 2). The Iron Masked Marauder was a really cool villian.

The Fifth one was okay. Of course, I saw no ads for it on TV and though It wasn't released.

The rest, especially the Advanced movies and the Diamond and Pearl Movies they were okay, not great, but okay. (But I haven't seen the Zoroark: Master of Illusions movie yet)

And almost a year ago I went to see Pokemon Victini and Zekrom in theaters, and it wasn't atriocious.

The pokemon movies, they're not horrendous, but they're not perfect either. I still like them nonetheless.
