Back then and maybe still a huge hype, that Pokemon stuff. It was very cool; some weird critters that came out of a ball and then dueled with each other. The TV series was reasonable and entertaining, but this movie is just bad and boring so 0.5.

Maybe because the first movie was so terrible, but this second came almost like a breath of fresh air. Of the five Pokémon movies I recently saw, I had a semi-marathon with a friend, this was the best. That while the story here is the least original: a chosen hero must save the world by collecting three magical orbs and bringing them to one point. On the other hand, this approach might save the film, because it lets the adventure begin quickly and gives some more time for supporting roles like Misty and Team Rocket, who in other films are allowed to play mostly spectators. The adventurous feeling of the series is somewhat approached here, so that the child in me could still do something with it. That's about all, because at the same time it's an adventure film that never gets special and has no special setpieces, although I have to admit that I still found Team Rocket's self-sacrifice funny. In addition, at a certain point it becomes tedious, despite the short playing time. There is not much variety in the endless series of laser beams that are fired and dodged. It also doesn't help that it's the ugliest movie in the series. It is well animated, but the environment design is colorless and dull. There's nothing here that I can recommend to people who have never had anything to do with Pokémon, but I thought it was just doable.

At Gekijôban Poketto Monsutâ: Myûtsû no Gyakushû (1998) I stated that it ''didn't really ensure that I didn't really make the last 20 year's worth of Pokemon movies.” Two days later and I'm on the second movie... maybe I'm in denial and need a lot of nostalgia. Then this one is at least a better match than the first film. This one feels wonderfully grand, adventurous and less pretentious (Mewtwo's idiom...) and fits effortlessly into the feel of the series as I remember it. Visually more details, music (although cheesy, especially the sung parts) really adds something and the humor again wonderfully bland.
