Trivia

Early trailers of the film showed Zoroark changing into an illusion of Ash--a much darker version of Ash. This is from an abandoned plot that had Zoroark working alongside Kodai instead of being under his control. See more »

This movie is better than the 9th movie, but it still sucks.
18 March 2015 | by curearielSee all my reviews

This movie is better than the 9th movie, but it's still sucks.

All the "illusions" fall flat, the "avataring" goes all the place, and the writing makes as much sense as a Batman fanfic.The moment of KodaI taking over the world goes no where. The Zoroark and Kodai battles are long and senseless. AND THE "MOTHER AND CHILD" Bond theme IS SLIGHTLY IMPROVED, but still JUST offensively remarkable too. This movie is as offensively bad as the 9th movie, but it's still seems lame and unnecessary. And another attempt for Pokémon to get Ash and His friends to get back into the spotlight. BUT HEY,I TAKE OVER ANY BATMAN ANY DAY.

SO A ROTTEN STARFISH FOR THIS POKEMON MOVIE,and Pokemon's status as "one of the most backlashed Kids Anime" is still going strong.
