I’m not the biggest fan of Pokémon-infact, I’m not a fan at all. It’s lame. My son loved trading the cards in 2nd grade. He saw the movie last year and liked it a pretty fair amount. This one was just ok. Annoying voices, slow and complicated.

This title has:

Too much violence

Were you surprised this movie is bad?

I'm a huge Pokemon fan but... Avoid this like the plague. In fact avoid any of the movies after the Victini movies because those were the last decent ones. Also female character Serena is hung on Ash and it's annoying so I mark sex because she's a tease.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism
