Pokémon action flick

It’s kind of a slow movie that I think is a little too violent because people are killed in it and the Pokémon hitting each other is really sad. My 6 year old son loves it though and has watched it twice. He said he loves everything about it except Brock flirting with the girl.

This title has:

Too much violence
