Pokemon 4Ever


All your favorite Pokemon characters are back, and are joined for the first time by the legendary Pokemon Celebi and Suicune, in this latest exciting Pokemon adventure.

In order to escape a greedy Pokemon hunter, Celebi must use the last of its energy to travel through time to the present day. Celebi brings along Sammy, a boy who had been trying to protect it. Along with Ash, Pikachu, and the rest of the gang, Sammy and Celebi encounter an enemy far more advanced than the hunter left behind in the past. This new enemy possesses a Pokeball called a “Dark Ball,” which transforms the Pokemon it captures into evil and far stronger creatures. When Celebi is captured, the fate of the entire forest is threatened. Let Pokemon 4Ever transport you to a world of adventure as Ash, Suicune and the rest take action to save the day.

Dove Review

The Pokémon stories generally feature a good, morally based storyline and this film is no exception. They are also centered on a theme of Japanese mythology and “Pokémon 4Ever” follows the same pattern. The characters are involved in a quest to save one of their fellow Pokémon and the forest from an evil Pokémon hunter. It is a fast-paced and charming work. However, there are several strong instances of fighting among the characters and a continual reference to spirits of nature inhabiting the forest and the wind.

We award this DVD our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages 12 and over.
