I find, number 12 now? I don't know the number we're trapped on these days, sure I'll watch them and have seen them all, as for rating I'm fine with 2.5 out of 5 stars. it's like nearly the same plot but just new pokemon tossed into the mess so they can call it a new movie. the first six or about that number were good, but after that they started to be dull to me.
I haven't seen any of the older ones except the first two through internet critics (the first by someone who never grew up with Pokemon and the second by those who did and actually grew up with Pokemon as kids.) They were cheesy and had some huge issues, but they were okay. After the third or fourth one (the one in which they deal with Celebi,) it became iffy. Mewtwo Returns wasn't that good, even as a kid. Then some of the things the movie showed made little sense such as high-tech equipment running on wind power but no backup in case the wind dies (which it turns out it was blocked) as well another movie being followed with everyone living like it was medieval times for no apparent reason.
I have seen the Victini movie and I meant to see the Keldeo one. For the Victini, it was okay with good parts being that Victini was an interesting Pokemon to watch, the animation was good, and the beginning was actually entertaining (especially with Victini stealing food from Ash.) It did have issues in that the version with Zekrom helping the antagonist, Ash's pack was not a truth but an ideal, so Ash should have made a pack with Zekrom instead (but yes, there is an alternative in which that happens. Thankfully, I don't think Nintendo is ever going to do this two version of the same movie thing again.) There is also an annoyance in which Ash is the hero that directly helps in saving the world. Again. And he will continue to do so. Again. I seriously hope that the next movie is one where they look at Team Rocket vs. Team Plasma and concentrate on either Jessie, James, and Meowth or else N. There is supposibly a two or three part episode where it does follow N, but I want a full movie.
I liked the first two (Mewtwo and Lugia), but I rember the third, with Entei, being kinda weird and confusing; but to be fair I haven't seen that particular one in a long time. I was a Pokemon kid growing up, so I'm biased, haha. I suppose non-fans wouldn't find any of them very entertaining.
I loved and watched the crap out of them when I was a kid, but recently I tried to watch the third movie (the one with Entei) for a little nostalgia, but it was..................................................Well, I couldn't even finish watching it. I hated it. And that was by far my favorite Pokemon movie when I was younger, so I don't think I'll watch the others.
Watching them as an adult, who didn't grow up on Pokemon... it's a little rough. They're not cringe-inducing though, and they're not bad at all compared to other kid's movies. Just a bit boring and overwrought.
