    Pre-release thread here.

    Now that the movie's been out, a new thread might be helpful. This one will cover all discussions and reviews related to Movie 16 as well as the special episode "Mewtwo: The Prologue to its Awakening" and will be the only thread for them regardless of language. Have at it~

      Uh, yeah. People who have seen it in theatres do exist, though not many of them will likely come by here. But mostly right now it's our discussion thread for the prologue, because I don't think it should have its own thread as it's clearly part of the movie.

            Trailer is awesome can't wait!
            Also, the narrator of the US trailer sounds strikingly similar to Mewtwo's US voice in the previous movies.

              whrflikjhg mega mewtwo looks SO WEIRD

              Also this looks exciting but dang I wish they'd get out of the cities for epic movie adventures. Cities are really restrictive battlegrounds if not done well. And really chaotic because you have- this time- two major powers against each other, one with assistance from kids and possibly Rockets. Then you also see that this is a huge bustling city with a crapton of resident humans and Pokémon (hear them screaming, watch them try to salvage their home while war rages on) who get underfoot and are devastated. Like, Keldeo movie was partially in-city but seemed abandoned. Rayquaza movie was in a rather empty city. This looks like utter chaos. I wonder how well the story is pulled off with all of these factors.

                omg that trailer!!!! omg !!! I'm speechless. I love that shiny Genesct :X

                I kinda agree with Anna, but in the trailer they made it very clear that they want to destroy the city. Maybe the Genesect were kept in a lab so many years and now they want revenge? :\ Anyway, I cannot wait for that movie. September is such a boring month.

                  It seems like they've infested the city idk. i don't really mean that this would be a bad city-movie- I just mean that it's hard to do a city-movie and I hope it's been done well. It's hard to portray the chaos and not overwhelm/comfuse the viewer.

                  I guess it works well with the technology and the type of Pokemon Genesect is but I'm also a little worried about the setting. In the past I've found the movies that aren't based in a city I've liked more than ones that are in a city for the most part. Cities just restrict them and for the most part can either make the movie a great hit or a great miss. I suppose we'll just find out when the movie is aired which I will surely try to watch when it does!

                    We all know the Mewtwo in this is different from the previous films, BUT will he have a male dubber or have a female dubber. I hope they give her a female voice since she even
                    has the body language of female. If they give her a male voice, they are going to make fun of it more and might call him gay :'(

                      The English dub aired today and you can bet I watched it. I thought the plot was better than most because this is one of those occasions when the Pokémon are doing the evil rather than some crazy human (I guess you can look at it like the Plasma scientists who restored Genesect caused the evil). That Poké Hills place looked really cool, I wish that the real Central Park had one... One advantage about having a massive brawl in a city is that more destruction can be caused, which increases the intensity of the battle. Strange how we saw very little human activity from such a populated city. I was hoping for more scenes outside of the Poké Hills place. A little disappointed that Mega Mewtwo X didn't get any love. Maybe we'll see it in a future movie. I really liked that scene at the end when Mewtwo flew itself and shiny Genesect into space and watched the planet. Very cool view.

                      @above post: Mewtwo has a female voice in the dub.

                        I liked the movie, better than the other 2 5th gen movies, but I just don't like that there is some how 2 mewtwos now in the anime universe. Then again, I guess you can say there is 2 Mews as well. I miss old Mewtwo though. Maybe there will be a movie with both Mewtwos and they mega evo into X and Y versions.

                        Well... Mewtwo is genetically created Pokemon so there could be even more of them.

                          Does anyone know when the english dub of this movie is being released on DVD?

                          I'd really appreciate any help with this.

                          Thanks.

                            So. I just watched the movie, I thought it was pretty good.
                            everything about the movie was great. =D

                              I just watched the movie. I didn't love it. It was really good, I mean, the animation was awesome and the story was interesting. But I don't know. I feel like they skipped some parts. Anyway, it was a great movie overall!

                              PS. I want the Pokemon company to create an official map of all the regions revealed so far! I would like to know how the Pokemon world looks like. (they showed the Earth but it was dark hahaha)

                                I am so sick of people thinking that the Mewtwo in the 16th movie is the same from the previous movies. They officially stated that the the one in this movie is not the one from the previous films.
                                Are people so ignorant about getting they're facts straight?
                                I'm just glad I study before watching movies.

                                  Then question is , What happen to original mewtwo ?
                                  How could they written him out like that ?
                                  And how writer explain all the thing that happen due to original mewtwo like Gary defect against Giovanni ???

                                  This whole Movie make me think that BW Series event took place in an alternate parallel Universe where Original Mewtwo didn't existed !!!

                                    I know as a fact that the new Mewtwo isn't the same from the first one cause I read it on the Pokemon X&y site, wikipedia, and on the writer's Twitter page. I'm not surprised about this. The anime has broken tons for fourth walls. For example: In one episode a lugia has a baby. In the game legendaries can't produce offspring. So there's an example right there.

                                      The M16 Mewtwo is definitely not the same one we all know and love. For one thing, the voice is different. Second, it didn't remember Ash. Third, its creation story was slightly different. I'm with you on this. I don't understand how some people think both Mewtwo are the same. I mean, the voices! first thing I said after hearing Mewtwo's voice: "That's not Phillip Bartlett or Dan Green." xD

                                          I just wish they were more consistent with mewtwos back story and experience with ash.

                                            The original Mewtwo was last seen guardin a city just like Castelia in Unova. They could have taken advantage of that and bring the original Mewtwo back with new powers and everthing. I guess we have two wild Mewtwos in the world. One masculine and another feminine with Y Megastone powers.
