Overview

The internationally popular toy, comic book, and video game characters who stormed the big screen in the surprise hit Pokemon: The First Movie are back in this Japanese anime feature. Lawrence III, who collects the elusive creatures known as Pokemon, will become the greatest Pokemon trainer on Earth if he can capture and tame Lugia, a huge Pokemon of the sea. Lugia's powers are so great that they could destroy the world if they fell into the wrong hands, so lead trainer Ash and his friends must stop Lawrence's dangerous quest before it's too late. Pokemon the Movie: 2000 was originally released in Japan in 1999 under the title Poketto monsutaa: Maboroshi no Pokemon X: Lugia Bakudan, which translates as "Pocket Monsters The Movie: The Phantom Pokemon: Lugia's Explosive Birth." The U.S. release of Pokemon the Movie: 2000 was paired with a short subject, Pikachu's Rescue Adventure.

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."
