    Synopsis


    Pokemon: The First Movie
    Pokémon, the lovable little characters who have become favorites in video games, TV cartoons, comic books, and toys, comes to the big screen with this animated feature film. In a fantastic alternate universe, there are 151 different varieties of the creatures called Pokemon, each with its own unique talents. Many humans attempt to capture the Pokemon and train them; the top trainers can teach the critters how to capture and train other Pokemon, making them Pokemon Masters. Ash Ketchum is one of the leading Pokemon Masters, and with his friends Misty, Brock, and Pikachu (a Pokemon with electrical powers), he discovers Mewtwo, a super-powered Pokemon created through biological engineering. Mewtwo has powers of which a mere Pokemon can only dream, and when he uses his skills to create even more super-Pokemon, Ash and his Pokemon friends must join forces to battle for survival. A major box-office success when released in Japan in 1998, Pokemon the First Movie was accompanied for its 1999 U.S. release by a 22-minute short subject, Pikachu's Vacation. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      I remember when I first saw this movie in movie theaters. I completely loved it. When I saw this at Best Buy, I had to get it! I recently watched it again and had some crazy nostalgia. I wish the newer Pokemon movies had this quality, I miss the original team. Definitely would recommend!

      First of all this is a must to own for any Pokemon fan. Watching this movie brought so many memories of when I was a kid. I wont spoil the movie with detail but just know you will love it with many great scenes. Spoiler alert: you might just cry.

      No matter what age you are, this will make you cry at the end. My wife still cries. Besides that, it is a wonderful movie. If you love Pokemon, you will love this movie. Ties into the TV show.

      I remember watching this when it first came out, my daughter loves it. The only downside is that it doesn't include the Pikachu short at the beginning. Bedsides that, it's still a great movie if you love Pokemon.

      Considering the price, I thought the movie could have had more HD capacity. Yes, it was an old Pokémon movie but with the demand for Pokémon products it seems they could update the material.

      This dvd isn't worth the money. It lists that it has a subtitle option and it doesn't. It also doesn't include the pikachu's vacation short. This is the lowest form of cash grab that wb can do.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
