    Another exciting Pokemon adventure. I thought it had a complicated story compared to others, and keeping track of how they explained the People of the Veil (sic) was tricky on the spur. This was counterbalanced by excellent animation and music score.
    I thought they did a great job with balancing Team Rocket's character, keeping them both silly and tough. Victini was appealing, both curious, an charmy ally, and highly sensitive.
    Why though could Victini not pass the protection pillars? I don't get that.
    As far as the audience, there were people of all ages. Kids my age (college), kids with parents, grandparents, teens... That was cool that they were aware of the movie's release. I can say I've seen all possible Pokemon movies on the big screen here in the states, including the 13'th in the B&W mall tour. I had a fun time!
    Honk if you prefer the Japanese version to the English dub!

    That's because they were not macaroons: coconut nugget things. They were macarons: meringues with filling.

    Well, I have seen this movie in theaters this past weekend. And it was an okay movie. It was also the first Pokemon movie I've seen in a theater since the fourth movie 9 years ago.

    It felt good to see a new Pokemon movie in theaters in a long time. The story is okay, not too great, but okay. However, Ash's voice actor still doesn't sound like his old voice actor in my taster. Team Rocket's current voice actors on the other hand, does sound like their old va's. OH well.

    And also, this is the first time I've seen Iris and Cilian in action.

    I think the only reason I would watch this movie again would be for the visuals.

    What was the point of having any human characters other than Ash and Damon in the movie? The rest of them did next to nothing that advanced the plot.

    I mean the entirety of the movie for Iris and Cilan felt like:

    ASH IS IN TROUBLE
    ASH IS ALRIGHT
    ASH IS IN TROUBLE
    ASH IS ALRIGHT
    OH LOOK A DRAGON
    TRY MY MACARONS
    OH NO ASH IS IN TROUBLE AGAIN

    Woulda been nice to have seen Iris and Cilan's battles actually last more than 5 seconds each. Iris's I can give because of Volt Switch... but Pansage didn't even get to DO anything. Ash's battles alone weren't even that special.

    Also I feel as if the entire plot could've been told in a single episode, MAYBE a two-parter...

    I feel as if we got robbed of decent plot and characters just so that we could get to slight variations of the same movie. Lame.

    The funny part is, you could say the same thing about most of the original series movies too.

    The cast for the dub:

    Damon - J. Michael Tatum
    Carlita - Leah Clark
    Juanita - Khristine Hvam
    Luisa - Lisa Ortiz
    Mannes - Michael Alston Baley
    Reshiram - Tom Wayland
    Zekrom - Michael Chobot

    I've never heard the voice actor who voiced Zekrom.

    The beginning was a bit weird but I loved the movie, all the same. Victini was pretty cute and Zekrom is still epic. Shame Snivy wasn't in it- I would've loved a super powerful Vine Whip or Attract. Ash passed out three times- exellent!

    Can't wait until M15!

    I know, right? White was so much better than Black! Personally, I think Ash will befriend Zekrom in the episodes because, well, Zekrom chose him, didn't he? In the first and second Best Wishes episodes?

    Just wanted to add that Cartoon Network will be showing "Pokemon White" next Saturday. Just saw an ad for it on television while watching the rerun of Pokemon Black.

    Yes, I did, too. I'll consider this a good trade-off for having to wait for the new episodes.

    I just finished watching this movie on Cartoon Network and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. I thought it was really well done, and it wasn't the typical Pokemon movie. There were no legendary Pokemon fighting, there were no villains. It was just two people with different ideas trying to accomplish what they set out to do. Damon is really a good guy who wants to make his moms dreams a reality and restore the kingdom of Vale. He doesn't realize what he was doing could set the whole world in great danger, and I really liked that story line. I don't see why Team Rocket was in the movie since they didn't do anything of importance (they weren't even that funny) but whatever. this was definitely Ash's movie. He was the star. Cilan and Iris were pushed to the background for most of the movie.

    I love the way the movie looked, the scenes with Ash and Victini were pretty touching and emotional. The music was good. I really liked the scenes where Tepig and Scraggy get powered up by Victini. It was a very fun movie. Zekrom, Victini, and Reshiram were all awesome. So I really can't find to many flaws with the movie. Like I said, this wasn't your typical good vs evil Pokemon movie so there wasn't really a huge climatic battle. So having said that, I think what made it so good was the characters. I thought Damon was a great new character who was only trying to help his people. The legendary Pokemon in this movie were great. And like I said, the scenes with Ash and Victini and their bond were all very well done. So overall, it did have a very different feel to it that set it apart from a lot of the other movies. So this was a great movie and I'm looking forward to what they are going to do with movie 15!

    That happens in every movie. To varying extents.

    Azureth, yeah sorry about that. I shouldn't have worded it that way. That's not really the point I was trying to make. I meant that the whole movie didn't really center around it like other movies did. Zekrom did come to Ash to help him save Vinciti, but like you said, it really only lasted a minute or two and didn't come until the last 20 minutes basically which is different than a few of the other movies. Sorry about that. That was worded wrong. Great fight that was by the way too ha ha

    And yeah, I never really felt Jessie, James, and Meowth served a huge purpose in really any of the movies, but I mean here they really only literally had what like 5 minutes of screen time in the whole things? I know that may be the same for almost every movie, but I felt that in the beginning movies they got a little bit more dialogue.

    In other words, the legendary Pokemon fighting wasn't the focus of the movie, and I kinda liked that we got more character interaction during this.

    Damon was a villain in the Well-Intentioned Extremist way. I mean, stopping everyone AND his mom from helping Victini from his pain? He saw the errors of his way once he looked down from Damn Excalibur Fortress.

    Yeah, I could see how Damon was somewhat of a villain. I mean he did say something about making sacrifices in order to get to the greater truth so he was fully ready to kill Vinciti if he had to. He wasn't the typical Pokemon villains we get in movies though, and I actually find him quite an interesting character.

    I have to say, I like how they extended the difference between the two movies beyond just swapping the dragons, with the Pokemon that show up mirroring the version exclusives for the two games and Ash and co taking a different fork in the road at the beginning.

    Re-watched it Sunday morning. Again, Victini was adorable. Victini really enjoyed those macaroons. It's great to see this movie again before the new season.
