This was one of the best Pokemon movies ever, you just don't understand.
I forgot characters of different races was a bad thing. Does it just fly over you people's heads that Sammy is Professor Oak? I'm sorry, but if you guys want to be children's movie critics you have to 1.Stop being racist 2. Stop saying stuff is too, fluffy, cute, innocent, Oh my God the green dovey thing died, I hate this movie! and 3. Be a kid.
If you like pokemon, watch it. If you don't you probably won't get it.
It's a great movie. So what if one character 'appears to be dead'? He isn't really dead and besides pretty much the same thing happens in Jungle Book towards the end. We've all watched that movie as kids, so this isn't much different.
