Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Patricia Kim O'Cone
The cartoon sensation that spawned the pocket monster revolution is back in this sequel to the first hit feature. This time around, Ash and the gang do battle against the Collector, a greedy Pokémon trainer whose master plan threatens the very balance of the world. Deviating from Pokémon's typical Saturday-morning format, the film creates a stunning cinematic experience, interspersing cartoon fare with amazing computer-generated imagery, in addition to suspense, emotion, and character development not usually found in the television program. A strong child hero, ten-year-old Ash Ketchum remains remarkably poised after being chosen as savior of the world, and parents will appreciate the ideals he learns: Believe not only in your own power but also in the power of friendship and teamwork, which is often found in the most unlikely places -- in this case, archfoes Team Rocket. Pokémon: The Movie 2000 also features an entertaining musical short, "Pikachu's Rescue Adventure."

Pokémon the Movie: 2000 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

I'm stunned to find only one other review about this movie, so many years after its release. In my opinion, this is the best Pokemon movie to date, and I have them all through Celebi, as well as a vast collection of the TV series. The story itself sells the movie, but the cinemagraphics ice the cake. There are many computer generated scenes interspersed with the animation, which makes for exciting viewing. My favourites, Team Rocket, have much more than a cameo in the plot, and they actually are actively involved with assisting Ash in saving the world. It's great family entertainment.

I think this one has something more that the other Pokémon movies are missing, but I don't know what....... Anyway, for all you people who think Pokémon is wimpy and for toddlers and no one else, you're wrong. This movie is complex and awesome! I like the subtle under tone of Misty's jealousy.

This movie was really well dubbed. Whoever did it is really good. There was no extra lip flap. I also like the computer animation. Go Ash!
