Cried: 00:7:00 (The first time Entei manifests)
- The real mystery is how a professor, successful or not, could afford a mansion like that.
- Two excellent mullets in the form of Molly's dad and his assistant.
- I played Pokemon Sword while watching this so I didn't jot down too many details but believe me, I choked up the whole film
If this ain't the best Pokemon film... I didn't realize how engrained this movie was into my psyche until I realized I knew the dialogue and scenes in the deepest recesses of my mind. So much of the body language I recited over and over again as a child, because it felt important, I guess. Lisa, the trainer at the beginning of the film, definitely played into my sexuality.
This one is so good. There is a lot more to the story than I remember. And you know I'm a sucker for anything involving kids and dads. I almost wish her parents stayed dead, you know, for interest reasons.
