But the violence in my opinion was still way to pointless. I would of understand if Deoxys did attack Rayquaza first. But it was him who sent the first blow. Even if Rayquaza was territorial. Rayquaza seemed stereotypical. He was the giant green lizard who caused a lot of destruction. Also in the games he was supposed to be a "peacemaker" however the anime seems to destroy that image in my opinion.
"Ash is the main character, the hero, how could he not have a major role? Sure, May and Brock didn't have to get shafted, but at least Max got to costar with Ash in the sixth movie"
I don't hate Ash it's just that the whole "I'm the Hero! It's up to me." or "I'm the chosen one" that is just old and predictable. I'm not saying he shouldn't have a magor role, but so should the other main charecters (May, Max, and Brock) And most of the episodes in the anime are centered around Ash.
"Well they weren't beaten by them, just buried. ^_^"
Why couldn't three really powerful pokemon (Who can fly) escape from blocks? Don't they have powerful attacks? Even if there was millions of blocks, a few hyper beams, and phyco boost could do the trick. Yet two human kids were not buried by blocks...
"Indeed, but it was supposed to be an extremely mysterious creature. And more was revealed about Deoxys than that. Why we don't know, but it seemed the two Deoxys were riding on the asteroid more than being native to it. In the end they simply return to space, making it appear they are a nomadic species that wanders the universe.
We also learn that they communicate via patterns of light and energy, as well as their "wierd" vision, which seems to be an optical form of a shark's ability to detect electricity in living things. Moreover they possess a unique body structure, with most of their body apparently being a extension of a "true form" the crystal core."
They also could of revealed more of information on Deoxys. Sure learning about Deoxys's cool abilites is nice. But don't we all already know that Deoxys is a killer pokemon? (I do XD) I want to learn about it's origins or what makes this pokemon so legendary...
"It's interesting to me how they combined the anime and games aspects. In the game Deoxys is a space virus mutated by a laser, while in the anime it requires energy from a laser (or another Deoxys or other powerful source) to regenerate from its core"
Not really, look at Deoxys (Purple Gem) he didn't regenerate from a laser. However I do get you're point XD.
"Since you seem to not have read any of the rest of the topic where these things were discussed, I'll list a few major points I've come to believe, most of them not explicitly stated in the movie but certainly indicated."
Umm I stopped reading when most of the posts became: "OMG! This is like the bestest Pokemon Movie ever!" No offense.
Anyways does are just my opinions. I would of been less harsh on the movie if they would done better job with the ending. In fact the only saving grace for the movie in my eyes was Deoxys (Who is one of my favorite pokemon).
Also darker doesn't mean Nudity and Violence, what I meant by that was for the movies to be a bit mature. (Like the first movie) and I don't mean fill the movie with senseless violence (Like the seventh movie). Also I never said I want pokemon to be evil. The movies could be a bit darker even without evil pokemon. The First Movie was a key example of what I mean.
I didn't say I hate the anime. It's just I think that at sometime it has to mature.
