When Pikachu is taken to the Tree of Beginnings by the playful Mew, Ash Ketchum and friends are guided to the tree by Lucario, a time-displaced Pokémon who seeks answers regarding the betrayal of his master.
Ash Ketchum from Pallet Town is 10 years old today. This means he is now old enough to become a Pokémon Trainer. Ash dreams big about the adventures he will experience after receiving his first Pokémon from Professor Oak.
An idyllic town is thrown into chaos when two powerful Pokémon, Dialga and Palkia, cross paths and battle, distorting the dimensions of time and space. The only hope comes from Darkrai, a shadowy Pokémon shunned by the townsfolk.
Our heroes must protect the Prince of the Sea, Manaphy, from the evil pirate Phantom, and return the young Pokémon to the Sea Temple with the help of the the People of the Water and Jackie the Pokémon Ranger.
When a group of scientists are offered funding into genetic research if they agree to try and clone the greatest ever Pokémon, Mew, the end result is success and Mewtwo is born. However Mewtwo is bitter about his purpose in life and kills his masters. In order to become the greatest he throws open a challenge to the world to battle him and his Pokémon. Ash and his friends are one of the few groups of trainers who pass the first test and prepare for battle. However they soon find out about further cloning and Mewtwo's ultimate plan for the earth.Written by

Being a fan of Pokemon, an old Pokemaniac too, I couldn't help but like the movie the first time. Beautiful animation as I was used to the so-so of the series, a threatening yet cool villain, and tie-ins to the show, what the 3 newer movies and video-sequel to this one lack so much. They seem unnecessary and make even the fans believe they're only out there for money. But, I have to talk about this one. I colourful, chaotic, wonderful mess the first time for us fans, it then becomes a predictable, boring, stupid movie like it was for everyone the first time. There's no other way to put it. If you've seen it once, don't see it again, otherwise it will ruin everything. The same can be said for the second movie, Pokemon:2000. But now the movies are really things put together at the last minute with less sense than you realize this has which seems to just be taking advantage of rising ticket prices. With those prices these days, I suggest you leave these movies out of your way until you can rent a copy. The glorious idea of Pokemon on the big screen has faded away with major disappointments, and the series is going to the same tune. With the movies being bashed by all, a GameCube game shelved, the series falling behind to Yu-Gi-Oh!, and the card-game losing interest, all of Pokemania seems to rest on the Game Boy Advance games coming next year. Nintendo has got a real big hole of opportunity to accidently hack one of it's greatest franchises.
