    I like how Hawlucha does random poses, but I feel like he is out of place in this short, as if it was an older child amongst smaller children. There was no Bunnelbro in this as well, no Pumpkaboo, too.

    The short was great and honestly I think it's my second favorite, second to the Pichu Bros.

    Hawlucha spending most of his free-time posing was funny as all hell and I liked Pikachu and Dedenne's shenanigans. I just can't help but wonder why all of the cast's Pokemon weren't out playing, Pumpkaboo's weird “cha-cha”'s would have been ideal for some of these scenes.

    Also, I can't believe they did the whole “hiding the main group's faces” again since we haven't seen that in a very long time.

    The sub found its way online, and I was at first hesitant to watch it, but talked myself into it. Let me just say that thank God it's so much better than Eevee & Friends. It's still a cute short, Pikachu shorts are always going to be cute, but it's not just cute, they actually did things relevant to the plot--in fact, there was a plot of sorts this time to balance out that pretty animation and cuteness, and I'm so happy for that. It's short, simple, and sweet, makes me think of "Pikachu and Pichu" in terms of having things other than "Pikachu and friends do cute things" throughout.

    This was a bit of a creative short, I like the idea of there being keyholes that open to other worlds. It's a shame we don't see more of these worlds (Manaphy's world is my favorite), but I did like the idea. I doubt the Legendaries in these world really "exist", as I did honestly find it weird Jirachi didn't speak, but I'm not bothered by it. Klefki was fun to watch, and the narrator wasn't annoying (I feel I won't be able to say the same for the dub, however...). I'm also glad that Meowth and Wobbuffet (can't comment on Inkay as a character) were treated with some respect this time and weren't just shoved in the short just because. Usually they're the butt monkeys in these shorts, but nothing bad happened to them this time around.

    So I was pleased with this one, and it's been a long time since I was last entertained by a Pikachu short. While I don't think it's as memorable as the earlier Pikachu shorts, it's far from being the worst one. I'd say it's decent at least, but good nonetheless. It was a nice way to ease the audience into the movie, and the quality of both the movie and the short matched in a good way.

    This was cute!

    But, something I wanted to mention: Did anyone else get a PMD feeling when klefki unlocked the first world? The portal thing reminds me so much of the gate of time.

    Haven't seen a Pikachu short in a long time. They just stopped putting them out in North America and kept them all in Japan. Imma check this one out later on.

    this one was pretty good the end credits was worth it to me alone.. I almost teared up seeing the art style that was reminiscent to the old school early gen sugimori watercolor pokemon art


    they looked alot like this old art style..



    Take a step and I'm on my way, gonna start all over again,.......again.
