    It's not a Pokemon film without a main character's death. I'm excited to see that scene cause I'm sure it's sad.

    I expected Xerenas vs Yvetal to be dodged like it was but hopefully the Steels ambush on Yvetal is enough to make up for it.

    I'm laughing at the use of diamonds though. Bonnie almost made it away with a Diancite, Team Rocket could have made Giovanni a whole lot richer and the villains somehow benefited the most and got married. What.

    breathe it in, i'm gonna shine. it's my moment, i'm going to fly.

    Is it just me, or judging by the clips and the pictures, was Greninja pretty badly animated?

    Maybe I'm missing some info, but was there really so much hype for a Xerneas VS Yveltal fight? I mean, would that really make sense?

    It's fair enough that the likes of Dialga and Palkia, or Zekrom and Reshiram end up clashing (the former because legend already heralded that disaster would ensue if they so much as met or something, the latter because they each lend their hand to brothers on opposing sides), but Xerneas and Yveltal are different because they're both crucial elements of the environment as a duo. Dialga can (and must) stay in its dimension and govern its own element alone; same with Palkia. But for Xerneas and Yveltal to properly fulfill their respective tasks, it's necessary that they co-exist and offer their powers in the same context, and ensure that life and death remain balanced and proportional.

    Neither's existence or powers threatens the other's, so there's no need for them to fight for the upper hand. Yveltal's storm of destruction only goes as far as it triggers and fosters the regeneration and rebirth of nature; going too far and rendering the environment so damaged that it's beyond recovery is not what Yveltal is there for. That's why it was enough for Xerneas to indicate that it was enough, without having to fight Yveltal to make its point.

    I mean, Xerneas was shown becoming aware of Yveltal's presence waaay before it actually came to intervene. It might've just been an illusion and the rampage in between was actually much shorter in-universe than the actual time that had elapsed in real-life indicated, but it made me think Xerneas actually let Yveltal "do its thing" for a while before stepping in. None of the people or Pokémon we saw getting turned to stone were part of the order of Alearth Forest, so it made sense that their "deaths" were reversed because they weren't strictly necessary for the cycle of life and death to remain intact.

    I don't know, that's just my take on the events. The movie only gave us very few clues on the relation between Xerneas and Yveltal, but based on them I thought it would've actually been weird for them to fight.

    Run for your lives.

    Guess this was more of a background event than anything else; the movie was about Diancie and her goal, which gives me Manaphy/Jirachi vibes.
    Now its only a matter of waiting for the movie to premier over here!

    Holy crap I loved how the movie opened with Bonnie and Serena saying hello. Animation is beautiful! I love the slide park scene with all the Pokemon! But why no Bunnelby and Fletchinder? :[

    Gin of sunyshore.com usually writes good summaries for the movies.

    And there's a pretty long video with clips from the movie on the net, pretty surprised the person got away with it. But Yveltal utterly devastates the airship and it's amazing. Also on the whole CG vs drawn thing, perhaps it's meant to contrast Xerneas and Yveltal. If any of you are SMT fans you might have heard about the anime for Devil Survivor 2. In that anime whenever Septentrions are shown, they're CG every time without fail. It was done to contrast the enemies to the ally demons who were 2D (same situation with the game where it was sprites vs Pr-rendered). Maybe it's the same concept here?

    Yeah so apparently through illegal means, about 30 minutes of the movie is up and honestly Yveltal's rampage is not what I was expecting in a Pokemon movie.

    Like seriously, during the sequence where Miris and her dad fly in their airship and attack Yveltal, he dodges every single missile and literally slams into the plane and blasts them on the spot. The whole sequence is pretty dark. I wasn't expecting this at all.

    This movie is looking like a 10/10 blockbuster

    Well they are meant to be opposing forces (life vs. death), so some of us assumed that they'd have a big showdown in the movie, but apparently that didn't happen the way I expected. It's my own fault for actually expecting something cool though.

    I think its just assumed at this point that the main Legendaries will fight at some point each generation. Its been a while since I've seen the Rise of Darkrai, but was there a good explanation as to why Dialga and Palkia were fighting? I mean, I guess it makes sense in Xerneas and Yveltal's case, because being the force of life, you would expect Xerneas to be the one to refuse to fight. But still, it was a bit of a letdown.

    Edit: Okay, I just watched the 30 minute clip, and the way they handled the Xerneas and Yveltal situation wasn't awful.

    [SPOILER]Yveltal was about to fire an Oblivion Wing at Ash and Co, when Xerneas blasted away the attack with what I think was either Ice Beam or a very strange looking Moonblast. They fired the attacks again, creating an explosion, when Xerneas calmed Yveltal. It wasn't an all-out battle, but at least they exchanged some attacks.[/SPOILER]

    Yeah, but it was in the Arceus movie. Arceus beginning to awake caused disruptions in time and space leading to Palkia and the Unowns thinking Dialga was messing with their dimension and vice versa.

    And yeah, the fight wasn't by any means awful, just not as hype as the movie trailers seemed to suggest. At least they fought and reached an understanding without causing the third wheel to wake up and start rampaging too.

    I suppose Zygarde will only come into play until someone manipulates Xerneas and Yveltal in the third movie of this gen.

    It would've been far more superior to have the father and daughter consume that Oblivion Wing before Diancie evolves. It is I feel if it so, then it increases the tension, for Ash's group is now all alone and none can now contend against Yveltal other than Diancie and its Mega Evolution, which should also fail, at which point Xerneas appears and brings them salvation.

    Do they show the result of Ash and Ayakas battle? I hope she appears in the anime again, I wanted her to have a role in the movie, but I guess not.

    It ends with Astrid's M-Absol beating Ash's Hawlucha, or so I read in a summary. I hope she appears again as well. I really like her character.

    Chances are she overstayed her welcome and thus has become forgotten. This is perhaps the last we'll see of M-Absol.

    So my main question now is, what was the deal with that promotional poster highlighting the various mega evolutions? Unless I've missed something, most of those weren't even in the movie.

    It was just a poster used to build hype like most initial movie posters and nothing more apparently. :x

    They were meant to confirm megas would be in the movie in some way. It was never said the megas on the poster were in the movie.

    Does Xerneas also use telepathy?

    Edit: I just noticed it has a VA I guess it does then?
