Pokemon movies have come a long way, from when they started off with Mewtwo and every pokemon having a small role, to now, with legendary Pokemon that are nothing but overpowered, English-speaking turds. However, don't let my disappointment in the creators of Pokemon influence you to make a conclusion for yourself, because I truly did enjoy this movie. Despite the fact that this movie is so generic compared to most of the other popular animations, it was actually quite entertaining.

The storyline was clear from the beginning, hence the name. Arceus, the ruler of all pokemon (which I have to say, I thought was Mewtwo), is coming back. The storyline is basically a double reverse twist of the protagonists and antagonists, and can become quite confusing. However, that doesn't make this movie terrible, if anything, it makes this movie quite mysterious, and has you on the edge of your seat waiting to figure out what will happen next. I personally loved the twist in the plot, but not everyone shares the same opinion as me. This movie begins with your favorite legendary Pokemon! Giratina, Dialga and Palkia. To be fair to you people who haven't seen this movie and are just reading this to figure out whether it's fair or not, I won't give too much information, however I will say that with each and every legendary taking place in this movie, it's an action-packed thriller which you will not be able to take your eyes off of.

In this movie, something that has never been seen before in a Pokemon movie is displayed. Time travel! Dialga takes the key protagonists back in time to figure out where the Orb of Life is, which is causing Arceus lots of frustration. With this, they find out that the antagonist is the protagonist, and a new character is introduced, leading to the exposure of the true antagonist. The movie gets fairly complicated starting when they go back in time, but as I mentioned before, this is what makes this movie original in its own way and what gives it that "originality touch".

In the end of this movie, Ash makes a great friend, Arceus. However, this was what made this movie so incredibly generic. Ash meets a legendary Pokemon, he does some random crap, and wa-bam, they're best friends and they absolutely love each other. I personally cannot stand generic movies like this, but I will have to admit that the protagonist-antagonist twist intrigued me enough to keep my rating for this movie decent. This is why I will give this movie a fair rating of: 6.5/10

I think the reason Ash fell in love with Arceus so quickly and junk was because you can only have so much character development time in a reasonably short child's movie. O.o
And yes, the ending was abominable (without saying too much)...

I still think all Pokemon movies so far have been awful and this one can't be too different.

That's just my opinion, though.

I had fun once and it was awful.

They could've just left it as it was, and had Arceus hate Ash or fall in love with .. some other person. Or perhaps a Pokemon?

Of course, most of the Pokemon movies were heavily influenced on the shows which is why (in my opinion) they're all generic and mostly terrible. However, everyone has their different reasons for disliking a movie or two .. or the entire series.

Similar to mine. The Mewtwo one was interesting to watch considering it was the first Pokemon movie I had ever seen, and the entei one was original because Entei and Ash always had that feud, and didn't become friends instantly.

COME OUT OR I WILL HUFF AND I WILL PUFF AND BLOW YOUR HOUSE DOWN!

But, seriously, that ending was terrible. I mean, sure, it's kind of depressing when Arceus is .. must not ruin ending, but then when he came back I just sat there and said "What the crap?"
