Pokemon The First Movie :D Behold my Powers. I am the most Powerful Pokemon in the World :D

After watching the Pokemon Anime every week we got glimpses of a powerful unknown Pokemon lurking in the shadows :D First Giovanni used this unusual Pokemon to defeat Gary Oak in a Gym Battle & then this Pokemon obliterates Team Rockets HQ :D After seeing how powerful this pokemon was without his armor on :D All I wanted to know was was who is Mewtwo & when will he encounter Ash Ketchum :D Thankfully I didn't have to wait too long :D As the Odeon Cinema in Wimbledon finally started showing this movie :D Nothing was going to stop me from seeing Ash, Misty & Brock on the big screen & being able to get that free Pokemon Card haha What I enjoyed most about the movie was seeing Ash Ketchum battles a random Pokemon trainer on the Big screen with the Pokemon theme playing in the background :D This just set the tone for the rest of this movie in terms of it's going to be action-packed aka time to bring it Ash Ketchum haha :D After the first proper song in the movie, you have just got to applaud the music talent who were signed up to sing music for the first pokemon movie like B*Witched let alone Billie Piper aka pure 90's pop music at its best :D Plus seeing Jessie, James & Meowth take more of a back seat then was a very welcome addition :D As they were used so well to provide exposition to the story you were missing like finding out little details like Mewtwo had rebuilt the lab he escaped from & finding out not all the clones are bad aka Clone Meowth :D Some of the biggest hell yeah & saddest moments of this film had to involve Ash :D Especially when he lead out an army of Pokemon into battle for the fate of the world :D Then out of nowhere Ash sacrifices his life to get all the Pokemon & Clone Pokemon to stop fighting while a crying Pikachu looks on in despair knowing his trainer is likely gone forever. What I noticed the most from watching this movie was that the voice talent were all on top of their game especially Mewtwo's voice actor whose menacing commanding yet intellectually wise voice just stole your attention every time he spoke :D Let's also not forget the animation far exceeded what was ever seen in the tv series & it showed on the big screen especially when the movie integrated CGI elements into the 2d animation it gave the movie a whole new visual scope. Looking back to the VHS tape the aspect that excited me the most about owning this video :D Was the inclusion of bonus footage of Mewtwo's origin's that explained how Mewtwo was created by finding Mew's DNA on a faraway research expedition plus the free pokemon card was pretty cool as well haha Let alone seeing Mew's first appearance on the big screen playing on a bubble aka Mew's cuteness could certainly give Baby Yoda a run for his money haha However, I honestly felt the mini-movie of Pikachu's Vacation was an unnecessary inclusion considering the run time of the movie. Even though seeing new Pokemon from Johto was awesome I had always thought this time could have been better used to flesh out some parts of the movie which I felt could have done with some more additional scenes to show what was at stake. I would have loved to see what happened to Mewtwo after escaping Team Rocket's base & especially the world being flooded by Mewtwo with some appearances from the important side characters from the anime like Gary, Delia & Professor Oak trying to save pokemon from the storm. Also seeing Giovanni who funded the Mewtwo project just disappear from the movie was very disappointing as seeing his reaction & perhaps regrets to what he has unleashed upon the world would have made for a great scene. I also always felt that all the additional Pokemon trainers were very underused & were only included so Mewtwo could Clone their Pokemon, haha What should have happened before Mewtwo used his powers to stop all the Pokemon from using their move sets to battle :D Was maybe all the trainers could have worked together to try to defeat the cloned pokemon aka the action scenes could have been incredible especially using some CGI haha :D Thinking back I still think the reason why the first Pokemon Movie was more successful than the next 2 at the Cinema :D Was mainly due to the fact that this mysterious Pokemon called Mewtwo was teased in the Anime which built the hype to wanting to see this movie on the big screen just to find out who he was :D Which the sequels always felt very standalone with very forgettable villains like how on earth was Giovanni not the villain in any of these sequels is beyond me haha #Pokemon #PokemonTheFirstMovie #Anime #Manga #Gaming
