Pokemon: I Choose You is a movie special that came out in for limited theater times in the US to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the Pokemon anime. It’s a loose retelling of the Kanto saga with plenty of references to the newest generation of Pokemon from the Alola region.
While we have not gotten a chance to see it, it is amazing to think that I Choose You is the twentieth Pokemon movie! We’ve always had fun watching the Pokemon films, even they do tend to make us cry by the end of them, haha!
Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea
Elements from the Pokemon Ranger games were shown on the big screen in this movie, something that I always found interesting. Aside from that, this movie had plenty of adventure and suspense (even though we all knew everything would turn out okay in the end because it’s Pokemon). I enjoyed the setting and scenery, with the main setting of the movie just reminded me of The Water Temple from the Legend of Zelda series, and it was the last Pokemon movie to use traditional cel animation for the animate the movie. It helped that the legendary Pokemon that starred in this movie was the adorable Manaphy!
My favorite aspect of the Pokemon 4Ever movie is that it has some really fun time-travel elements to it! I always found the plot to be interesting, especially with the fun little twist at the end, and the animation was well done. The Lake of Life and the forest scenery were really beautiful. Celebi and Suicune were always a couple of my favorite legendary Pokemon as well.
Pokemon 3: The Movie
My fondest memory of this movie is the theme song, in all honesty. The Johto region’s theme music was always one of my favorites! This movie had a bit of a creepy side to it, with the Unown dimension and little Molly’s wishes for her family to return. This movie had some pretty epic battles to it as well, which is what the series is known for.
