Dove Review

Pokémon Heroes is classic Pokémon fare. There is a great deal of animated violence and chase scenes between the characters. The film features the adventures of Latios and Latias, two shape-shifting dragon-like Pokémon who possess the ability to transcend time and character in a flash. Much of this series is based on Japanese Mythology and Pokémon Heroes follow suit.

Families who are Pokémon fans will most likely enjoy this film. There is an emphasis on friendship, teamwork and not leaving a friend behind in risky situations.

This DVD has been awarded our “Family-Approved” Seal for ages 12 and over.
