Mew and the Hero of the Wave, Lucario

A trainer broke my heart once



Current Zar note: I eventually branched out from just doing game screencaps to doing them for Pokemon movies as well cause why not, who's going to stop me. I did this LP (?) in 2014! I left my write-up mostly unchanged.




I'm just going to state it right upfront - the Lucario movie is probably the best one. Considering we're talking about Pokemon movies, this isn't a very high bar, but really, I do think this one is better than most of the ones before it or after it, for that matter. It's not an amazing work of cinematic genius or something, and it's not really particularly deep or groundbreaking, but it has a nice emotional arc and it's not the typical cute-legendary-is-in-peril/scary-legendary-is-misunderstood plotline, which is refreshing. This movie also raises a lot of really interesting questions about the Pokemon world itself and the genesis of Pokemon training and does some worldbuilding with that, which really interests me a lot, and it also has a great soundtrack (which they often used in the show itself after this movie came out).

If you're only going to watch one Pokemon movie, it should probably be this one (or possibly a well-translated subbed version of Mewtwo Strikes Back, but good luck finding one). And if you don't think this movie is that great, just remember - the vast majority of the other movies are worse. AGAIN, THIS IS NOT A SUPER HIGH BAR.

(It just makes it all the more disappointing when a new movie comes out and it ends up being the same bland and boring stuff as before, like, you guys did it right with the Lucario one! Is it that hard to do something like that again? Looking at you, Genesect movie.)

I also heard the dub version of this isn't bad, though I haven't personally seen it. :B So that's also an option.

Anyway I tried to trim this down quite a bit but this movie is a bit more plotheavy than the others and also I got bored, so whatever.

REMEMBER THESE SHOTS FROM THE OLD MOVIES? HA HA, WE DON'T GOTTA ANIMATE NOTHIN!

This is supposedly the inside of a Pokeball, who knew.

snip snip CHECK OUT ALL THESE POKEMON, ARE THEY DIFFERENT FROM THE LAST MOVIE, WHO KNOWS

I WASN'T WATCHING THE SHOW AT THIS POINT

OH MAN, NOW THINGS ARE GOING TO GET INTERESTING

I mean just THINK about the repercussions the invention of Pokeballs had on training. How much that must have changed EVERYTHING in a world filled with Pokemon. JUST THINK ABOUT IT

A MILLION STORIES JUST RIGHT THERE FROM THIS ONE LINE

I mean the whole idea of training itself has to be changed if there are no Pokeballs, because you can't just zap a Pokemon into a ball and forget about it anymore, you have to spend every waking moment with that Pokemon, figuring out what to feed it, where to keep it, where it sleeps, its moods and preferences, its strengths and weaknesses, EVERYTHING. And imagine doing it with MULTIPLE Pokemon! Back then one can assume that training a Pokemon would be more like an apprenticeship or partnership with one singular Pokemon that you could devote all the necessary time and effort and energy to. And since you can't catch them, you can't "own" them. They could just as easily leave you OR GET STOLEN EVEN. And there wouldn't be anything like the Pokedex, it'd just have to be written notes about the Pokemon and their types and such since you can't catch them and get access to a prewritten summary like you can in the games.

AND THEN POKEBALLS CAME AROUND AND CHANGED THIS WHOLE DYNAMIC, CAN YOU IMAGINE the whole idea of pokemon training shifting over from a single intense partnership between a human and a Pokemon that spend like every waking hour with each other to the casual multi-Pokemon teambased methods of the modern day, where you can just keep your Pokemon in their balls forever and catch hundreds and hundreds of them all you like. Was there resistance to this change? Were people dubious about it at first, scaremongering about Pokeballs? Did people talk about how trainers didn't care about their Pokemon anymore like they used to? What kind of facilities went in and out of business as a result? Pokecenters must have been totally different, if they existed at all. And if you can't heal your Pokemon in its ball really easily, battling was a MUCH more serious affair if your Pokemon got hurt and had to get healed physically, not something to be taken lightly. Were Pokemon battles even an organized, regulated THING at this point, or did that only come about when Pokeballs came into the scene and gave humans much more control over Pokemon?

This is really interesting to me okay shh.

And here's our star! And his catchphrase. I honestly did not care at all about Lucario until I saw this movie, true story. It's why Farnsworth even exists to an extent.

Through the powers of bad filters, we can see an enormous army approaching!

Pokemon in battle armor! AGAIN, THINK ABOUT THIS FOR A SECOND. You can't CATCH Pokemon at this point, an army of Pokemon could be totally unstoppable. And of course, you'd have to fight an army of Pokemon with another army of Pokemon to even the odds. Stocking them up like weapons of war, though you'd have to be able to feed and house them as well since you can't just keep them in balls. So of course you'd want to give your Pokemon army armor to keep them going the longest and sustain the least amount of casualties, since training new Pokemon to replace ones that fall is a much more complicated affair, not to mention a big investment.

Pirouette!

So yeah, ten inches at least, you interested

oh what now

Sadly this movie suffer the same wonky face animation as the Jirachi and Deoxys movie, I dunno what the art team was doing for this gen.

sucks for them

Just a castle with no kingdom or what

Meanwhile someone kicks dirt in Lucario's eyes

Just stand there while I kill you theeeenks

WELL GOOD LUCK WITH THAT, BYE

Skarmory shows up to shoot a beam right up Pidgeot's butt, rude

Shoot where am I going to get another one of those

BLINDNESS AIN'T NOTHING

sorry i meant i was going to stay at the castle, i got confused

FOR ME??

And Lucario gets turned into energy and sucked into the crystal. Remember this is before Pokeballs so imagine how completely alien and terrifying this could be to a Pokemon.

Although it does make you wonder, why can Aaron do this with his staff, can other people do this, was this like a weird power some Wave users had, was it the crystal itself, did Pokemon gossip about humans being able to seal them in crystals as rumors before Pokeballs were made, many questions here

oh it is not

Pidgeot is ENORMOUS

PYEW PYEW

I like that there are also puzzled human soldiers here, probably to help direct the Pokemon a little.

nice face

Hey, isn't she from Chrono Trigger?

And the humans who presumably orchestrated the war decided to do something else I guess, who knows.

Pokemon toys! I never get tired of them.

There's a bunch of swooping around the crystal but this was the oddest thing to me DOES THE POKEMON WORLD HAVE SPACE TECHNOLOGY

Or Lucario and the Mystery of Mew I think in English, I forget.

MIGHT AS WELL, WE'RE IN THE AREA

Pikachu is unimpressed.

A carbon copy of the old Queen! Maybe this really IS Chrono Trigger after all!

may do you have something you want to share with the class

has anyone ever seriously raised a tropius

OH the intro to this movie is Battle Frontier, which has a lot of guitars and fun energy to it. FINALLY A PROPER INTRO.

WHAT IS GRAVITY TO A POKEMON

A Weavile, another new Pokemon cameo for Diamond and Pearl.

And a Mime Jr.! DP was really into pre-evs and new evs for whatever reason.

WHO'S THIS SCAMP USING TRANSFORM ALL OVER THE PLACE, I CAN'T IMAGINE

fire spin sucks

I REALLY DO WONDER IF ASTHMA IS A BIG PROBLEM IN THE POKEMON WORLD

invisible counter

I'M SHOCKED

GASP ASH'S OPPONENT WAS A LADY WHO somehow fit all that hair into that helmet, that is the real surprise here

Aaron was a HERO, OKAY

HI TEAM ROCKET, NICE OUTFITS

especially you james

no it's just the staff, it does that sometimes, just ignore it

CG DANCERS FOR EVERYONE!!

Some older dude being nice and dancing with a kid.

I WAS LEGITIMATELY SHOCKED BY THIS THE FIRST TIME I WATCHED IT, BROCK NEVER SUCCEEDS WITH GIRLS EVER

argh this is so cute, i can't handle it

i ended up making some animated gifs of it no less, haha

Max meanwhile knows what's really important - tons of free food.

HAHA, SUCKER

In this sequence you can reeeeaaally tell that Jessie is voiced by the same lady who does Lina from Slayers, if you're a Slayers fan. WHICH OF COURSE YOU ARE, WHY WOULDN'T YOU BE, SLAYERS IS GREAT

YOU ONLY SEE THEM LIKE EVERY DAY TRYING TO STEAL YOUR POKEMON, MAY

Man I feel you Meowth.

Sucker, he'll never see me again

is this code, what is this

A JEWEL THIEF OF COURSE lolol nice hair

WOW AN EMPTY ATTIC, THIS IS WAY BETTER THAN THE SUMPTUOUS BALLROOM AND FEAST DOWNSTAIRS

aww the legendary bird mobile

I'M NOT JAMES, I'M NOT WEARING A DRESS, YOU SEE?

best time of the night

awww brock, ditched again

meanwhile yada yada meowth gets up to the roof and falls but I just thought it was sort of neat that the curl of his tail caught the vane, who knew that was good for something

HEY MEOWTH what's that thing sticking off your face

this can't be a good sign

YOU GUYS ARE DARK TYPES, SHOULD BE EASY

CHOKE YOU TO DEATH

WHO DARE

pokemon attacks as usual exploding all over the place down there

dance dance dance dance, presumably to try and get the Weaviles confused about which Meowth is which

DISS

THE ONLY WITNESS

THIS PARTY SUX, I'M OUT

:< faces, haha

Wait, isn't everyone already partying

SOMEONE CUE THE FIREWORKS GUYS OUTSIDE

the dangers of mimicking ancient tapestries graphically portrayed

Jessie and James holding hands, as usual.

I just like her holding her hand out in front of the queen. :B

GASP

WHAT A COINCIDENCE ASH IS WEARING HIS EXACT OUTFIT aaron-sama did you lose a foot of height

Sidenote, Lucario is telepathic, thus why he can communicate with people. Presumably all psychic Pokemon are telepathic, but even some non-psychic Pokemon can be, as is the case with Lucario (fighting/steel). HOW MANY POKEMON TALK TO THEIR TRAINERS

MY EYES HAVE HEALED wait what

how many people saw that

FLASHBACK better get used to these

You know, given that Lucario's species is like kind of notorious for being natural users of the Wave and all, it's weird that a human is teaching a Pokemon how to use the Wave. It'd be sort of like teaching a fire Pokemon how to burn something, wouldn't they already know? Wouldn't they naturally be better at it than any human could ever be?

Or is Aaron SO skilled at the Wave that his powers exceed even that of a Pokemon's? I mean, picture Aaron throwing around huge Aura Spheres that explode things from great distances like a Lucario (or any Pokemon that learns Aura Sphere for that matter), that'd be NUTS. IN THE OLD DAYS, DID HUMANS HAVE POKEMON LEVEL SUPERPOWERS? WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT did people just forget or was it buried down when Pokeballs became commonplace, how does it fit in with the idea that Pokemon and humans share evolutionary history

Lucario says all intense like for some reason.

I can see how you'd get confused, we look completely identical.

I DID NOT AGREE TO THIS HUG

I had this really terrible nightmare once where I like went into a coma and woke up 17 years later and couldn't reintegrate myself back into my own life, so I can relate to Lucario's time-displaced horror and confusion here.

They couldn't have been after our castle! I mean, it's not like we had a kingdom or something.

I'LL NEVER FORGIVE HIM

I like that May immediately believes him though.

how could you

MIGHT AS WELL MOVE ON

Ash actually on top of things for once

WHAT A COINCIDENCE

james is less than thrilled

LIES

WOW THE LEGENDS ARE TRUE

Brock says cheerfully

I TOTALLY WASN'T INVOLVED

why does mew do anything

Wait, wasn't that just an Aaron tapestry

awkward mouth angles for everyone

do you buy that

what a terribly unflattering angle, lucario

not like i got anything else to do

WOOPS BLEW MY COVER

What else do you have in that notebook, Brock

also A SPACEWALK, THERE TOTALLY IS A SPACE PROGRAM IN THE POKEMON WORLD

WHY DON'T WE HEAR MORE ABOUT THIS

He says Super Woman in english, hehe

I could've gone to the tree itself, but why do that

i hope mew didn't turn into a sharpedo and eat him

I'LL NEVER FORGIVE YOU

Lucario backflips off a wall and tackles Ash and it's hilarious, I made some gifs of it even.

THIS FRANCHISE DEPENDS ON IT

Raises questions of how the Pokemon see the training relationship back in the old days, again the idea of an apprenticeship comes to mind

>:|

I WAS STUCK IN A STAFF FOR LIKE HUNDREDS OF YEARS

WHY AREN'T WE BEST PALS ALREADY

I'M GOING TO MESS THAT GUY UP

let's change the subject

Sort of a weird name for it!

YOU WERE JUST THINKING THIS, WEREN'T YOU

the japanese word for it is "hadou" if i remember right

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO MASTER THE WAVE

COULD AARON THROW AURA SPHERES AROUND

I'M CURIOUS ABOUT THIS

WOULDN'T THAT BE SOMETHING well that'll probably come to nothing

Meanwhile at the tree Meowth and Pikachu are fine, I just think that Spoink-in-the-Box is adorable.

how are you doing that with no opposable thumbs

i can't sit with everyone else aaaaangstttt

A Bonsly! Another new DP pokemon. Also those look like grilled cheese sandwiches to me, like the ones you'd make in a grilled cheese press. I would totally eat one of those.

brock's face, haha

because it's a pre-evolution of Sudowoodo and Sudowoodo is a faker tree Pokemon, get it

wait how do you know that max

WOW A SINGLE BERRY INSTEAD OF THIS FULL PLATE OF HUMAN FOOD

WHAT A GREAT TRADE

lucario ~has a heart~

thud

my thoughts exactly meowth, what the

BUT WHO CARES ABOUT THAT

pretty sweet, it's true

tip tip tip

LET'S TAKE A BREAK

let's all face this direction

TEAM ROCKET CAN ALWAYS COME ALONG

actually the bonsly fell off the roof of the jeep onto her head and it always bugged me that it barely hurt her at all BONSLY IS A ROCK POKEMON AND LIKE THIRTY POUNDS

sort of a pun, May saying "uso" for no way, which is part of Bonsly's Japanese name, yada yada

GET OVER IT, ASH

woosh

aw yeah, now things are gonna get hot

STOP DRIVING DAGGERS INTO MY HEART

maybe his HEART WAS BROKEN

just as planned

IT JUST BROKE OFF IN MY HAND, WHAT WAS I SUPPOSED TO DO

max why are you wearing glasses in a hot spring

AGAIN?

also known as a plot device

ANGST

and so we get a see-through version of what we just saw happen!

were you listening a second ago

this probably won't come up later

he looked much fatter, little stubby legs

HE LIKES ME NOW still shocks me though

REMEMBER THIS SCENE, OLD SCHOOL FANS?

i like comparing the quality of these shots to the movie shots

LUCARIO DO YOU PERCHANCE HAVE A FLASHBACK FOR US?

aaron dodges some badly done cg logs

you didn't explain anything you just did it how am i supposed to

it was the blindfold... the whole time...

~aaron-sama~

EVERYONE'S ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT ME

lucario sees you out there

lucario knows what you've done

YOU'RE JUST LYING ABOUT YOUR BETRAYAL AND BROKEN HEART AREN'T YOU

everyone else is cool with it though

I'LL KILL YOU

Ash don't get into it with a fighting Pokemon, they can break you in half

i'm going to go angst somewhere else, i don't gotta take this

Ash has a rare moment of self-awareness.

no one understands

oh what do YOU want

i like that it broke off unevenly

Lucario tilting it back and forth like a curious dog

then makes a satisfied little purring noise here, haha.

I-IT'S NOT LIKE I ACTUALLY LIKE IT, BAKA

max gets along with like all the pokemon

Shuckle party favor!

Hitmontop top! So cute.

not like you had anything better to do, pikachu

I SENSE PIKACHU CALLING ME

what a weirdo

that's too bad CHOP CHOP BACK ON THE ROAD LET'S GO

quit playing games with my heart

hi convenient time flower

DUUUHHHHH

BYE, LOSER

i worship thee, magical staff

MORE TIME SHADOWS

look at these ironic beautiful flowers GET IT

not a bad suggestion

WHO CARES, NOTHING MATTERS

this giant crevasse represents the blackness of my heart

oh now what

...go on

yes, obligatory ash tears, check

LEARN FROM MY TRAUMA, DO NOT REPEAT IT AGAIN

I CAN'T BE SAVED BUT PERHAPS OTHERS CAN BE

meanwhile

thanks for showing up just to ruin everything regirock, fits in well with the general feel of the regis

BETTER WALK RIGHT INTO THE TREE THEN

eh, nothing special

it was THIS big i swear

i did not know omanytes could do that

LOOK AT ALL THESE FOSSIL POKEMON, LIKE A FOSSIL POKEMON UTOPIA

WHY ARE THERE NIDORANS HERE

i mean he's probably at the top, why wouldn't he be

HOPE OUR TERRIBLE HUMAN TAINT DOESN'T DESTROY THIS BEAUTIFUL UTOPIA OR SOMETHING

brock are you listening

anything you imagine for how silly ra~re could be pronounced is true

cuddleshot as usual

I'M JUST HERE TO RUIN THINGS

ME TOO, I WANT TO DESTROY IT ALL

what

what

so a rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrock pokemon?

PLEASE KISS ME

whuh oh

THERE YOU ARE, FINALLY

JEEZ

IF SOMEONE COULD GIVE ME A HAND HERE

not you, ideally

lucario knows what's up

did someone stomp on your nose lucario

i swear there are some angles where lucario's muzzle looks fine and others where it looks like they awkwardly glued a cone to his face.

lot of running in this movie

sup can we interest you in some death

our plan is to RUN AWAAYYYYYYY

cool poses for your trading cards

i just think this is a neat shot

think you're clever do you, we'll get you yet

JESSIEEEEEE

This animation of James throwing out this Pokeball is weirdly detailed for no reason, it's bizarre. Someone on the animation team really liked James I guess.

time to fall to your knees and wail to the skies

IF I HAVE TO DIE AT LEAST I CAN SAVE YOU

i think this is a really sweet detail though, that the trainers let their pokemon free so they can escape knowing they're about to die. CARING ABOUT THEIR POKEMON TO THE END

i totally forget how james got this Chingling. No wait, this is the evolution... Chimecho, that's it.

TWO PEOPLE JUST DIED, WHAT'S THAT ALL ABOUT

to be fair, not unusual in the pokemon world

Lucarios' ears are flopping around all over in this scene for some reason, haha.

Do you buy that

COULD USE ONE RIGHT NOW

HOW HUMAN-IST

nope

found my new reaction image

ACHIVEMENT UNLOCKED: BEFRIEND LUCARIO

kabuto'd

WELP, BYE

do we... do we just go, or

ASH NO WE'RE GOING THIS WAY

ASH

not quite

There's a really long sequence in here with Ash jumping around these crystal pillars and it's really windy but here is the end result

AT THE LAST SECOND

EVERYONE FRIENDS NOW

not friends now

i asked you to do ONE thing, are you serious

dramatic back shot

should we get a flying pokemon, maybe a fearow could drill peck through

HEY GUYS IT'S SO GREAT TO SEE YOU

HUGS FOR EVERYONE

I'M SORRY THIS THING IS KILLING ME

i just noticed meowth's face back there, haha

oh well, alright, go ahead then

~roll credits~


but no wouldn't that be hilarious

"would this hat cheer you up"

"NO GDIT WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM ASH JUST DIED GET AWAY FROM ME"

oh fine, I'LL fix it

woah i was dead, i saw the afterlife, i know what lies beyond this mortal plane, my entire worldview has changed forever

POKEMON YAAAAAYYY

well i guess we're... done...?

couldn't have done that before, could you mew

how does that work WHO CARES, ROLL WITH IT

oh i have the vapors

oontz oontz oontz

I KNOW THAT PAINED YELP ANYWHERE

meowth just walks off screen and no one asks him where he's going or what, it's sort of hilarious. WELL GOOD LUCK WITH THAT MEOWTH, WE HAVE OUR OWN PROBLEMS

YOU DON'T SAY

MEW AND THE TREE SURE ARE IN A SYMBIOTIC RELATIONSHIP hey buddy don't eat those humans okay, spit em out

FINE, THEN I'LL JUST DIE TO SPITE YOU

Oh right, that weird tube thing Mew and Pikachu and Meowth fell in is sort of like a capillary and these are the blood cells, I guess.

NOT OUR COTTONY WINGS, NOOO

protecting her again, so cute

eh, they're probably fine

Mew has the same ugly undermouth thing going that Lucario does, I have no idea why they went with that as a stylistic choice.

TRUSTING MEW HAS WORKED OUT FOR US SO FAR, WHY NOT

wow, more crystals, amazing

DUN DUN DUNNNN

then turned into a cg model and got stuck in a rock

a plot device?

TO DO THIS THING

WHATEVER IT IS

WE NEED TO DO IT

THE TREE WILL HELP I GUESS??

what is this thing you're doing

say that to all the girls

SURELY THIS WILL STOP THE WAR

NO MY LIFE IS A LIE AGAIN

i'm not in the mood, mew

i am so high right now

like at all or just the giant spirit ball he was doing

I FEAR NOT DEATH

YAY SOUL BALLS AGAIN

what, what a rip-off

man way to kick lucario when he's down ALRIGHT I'M GOING TO DO IT, I'M GOING TO NOBLY SACRIFICE MYSELF TO SAVE THE WORLD

lol sorry you don't even have enough power to do that, good luck though

I DON'T HAVE ANY OF THE TRAINING THAT YOU HAVE BUT I'M SURE I CAN DO IT

is that circle on the back of those gloves raised or flat, it seems inconsistent to me

I DON'T EVEN KNOW THESE POKEMON BUT I DON'T WANT THEM TO DIE ash, shounen hero to the end

stop trying to steal my thunder

FINE IF YOU WANT TO DIE TOO, I WON'T STOP YOU

HEY DO I GET A SAY IN THIS AT ALL

I KIND OF HAVE AN OPINION ABOUT YOU DYING

aw yeah SWEET SOUL ENERGY, JUST PUMP THAT INTO ME YEAH YEAH YEAH

CAN'T BELIEVE I CONNED TWO MORE SUCKERS INTO GIVING ME THEIR SOULS, HA HA HA!!!!

OH NO, WHO SAW THIS COMING

so what do neighboring kingdoms think whenever this happens, i mean it's got to be visible from pretty far away

MEOWTH SNUGGLES YAAAY

well i bet ash and lucario are fine let's just go outside

thanks for kidnapping pikachu and meowth and starting this whole thing

MAYBE NOW YOU'LL LEAVE EVERYONE ALONE

lol mew's eyes

oh yeah, the whole death thing

HOW CONVENIENT

man sat RIGHT on a spike ow

THAT'S WHAT TRAINERS AND POKEMON DO FOR EACH OTHER >:(

oh, oh wooahhh, i just wanna be here beside you

just piling it on Lucario here

oh god he's going to ask me to marry him

soulmate, friend, whatever

Fun trivia: Aaron is in the Diamond and Pearl games! He's in a cave if I recall and he gives you an egg, which hatches into Riolu, Lucario's pre-evolution. :B They call him Riley but it could not be more obvious that he's Aaron. Or Aaron was based on him, whatever.

D:

not really what he was talking about, but okay ash

I WON'T ALLOW IT, I LIKE YOU TOO MUCH

WHERE I TRULY BELONG

the "no, you meant dying" face

Aaron and Lucario's soul balls become one

gay

IS THIS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DIE

EVERYTHING I KNOW IS WRONG

should we go look for ash, or

eh he's probably fine

WE WEREN'T ABOUT TO LEAVE, WHAT

oh man i don't know how to have this conversation

the tree ate him

THEY'VE BECOME CLOUDS???

and also with you

the scale of this tree is ridiculous. sorry, "mountain"

people in this movie have too much hair

Oh, the ending song for this movie is Hajimari no Uta, sung by Puffy Amiyumi! You may remember them from the short-lived Cartoon Network show, if I have my names right. It's a fun, cheery rock type song.

wait how does that work, wait what

I'M THE ONLY WOMAN WHO EVER SHOWED YOU POSITIVE ATTENTION BROCK WELL HERE I GO OUT OF YOUR LIFE FOREVER

the pain never eases

Mew has a new friend in Bonsly at least. also STOLE AARON'S GLOVES, THE THIEF

omg, it's Butler and Diane from the Jirachi movie! I totally never noticed this until I took all these caps, it surprised me, haha. MOST OF THE TIMES THE MOVIES DO NOT HAVE CONTINUITY, THIS WAS VERY UNUSUAL

nice overalls butler lol

fonz, still incredibly boring, at least the world tree had crystals and lasers in it

AND BACK IN THE PAST (?)

OR IS IT

THE AFTERLIFE

don't be silly lucario, you can't have any of this, it's people food

the happiest we ever see that poor pokemon

AARON ONLY EATS CHOCOLATE ONE PRECISE SQUARE AT A TIME

i read a fic once where aaron and lucario were trapped in some kind of weird alternate dimension or limbo like afterlife where they were constantly trying to get to the castle but could never quite reach it. it always makes this shot feel a bit sad to me. :B

Meanwhile Ash and co walk off, as standard.

2005, THE HIGH POINT OF THE MOVIES

man almost ten years since this movie, i can't believe it

And the coloring contest that started with the Deoxys movie continues! I like the Torchic in the dress.

I THINK the ending song here is Pokemon Kazoe Uta, an ondo sounding song.

SOMEONE HELP, GET US OFF THIS THING

And that's all! Next up, the Manaphy movie!
