Dove Review

This is a fun and fantasy filled DVD. The animated characters are interesting and of course Pokémon was, and still is in some places, a big deal. The nice thing about this DVD is that the characters are easily distinguished by the good and evil they do. Although there are battles and one evil character “sucks up” characters, we see that they are safe and not harmed.

One of the most amazing characters is Jirachi, who uses magic and is able to make wishes come true. Other characters make this movie an interesting journey, including Pikachu, Max, and Ash. But when the evil magician captures Jirachi and a former scientist, Butler plans to harness and use Jirachi’s energy to bring an incredible and powerful Pokémon to life!

We are pleased to award our Dove Seal to this DVD. This movie has never been seen in theaters and will be a treat for Pokémon aficionados everywhere!
