Traditional Pokémon animation blends with state-of-the-art computer generated effects in the eighth instalment of the popular anime series.
A special tournament is being staged for Prince Aaron, but as Ash Ketchem, Brock, Max and May all prepare to take part in the celebratory event, Pikachu is abducted by the evil Mew.
In order to rescue their old friend and ensure that the tournament goes ahead as planned, Prince Aaron's Pokémon friend Lucario leads the gang to the 'Tree of Beginning' to confront Mew in an explosive battle of truly epic proportions. Australian premiere!
Ok, who wrote this?! Guess they weren't paying much attention to the storyline and the character names... It's not Prince Aaron, it's SIR. It's not Ash Ketchem, it's KETCHUM. Mew is not evil, Mew is just a little mischevious at times (Mew: "Wanna bet? Just listen to my evil laugh! Muhahahaaaa!"). The tournament finishes way before Pikachu is carried off by Mew. And nobody battles Mew. They just go to the Tree of Beginning to bring Pikachu back after its fun time with green bubbles...
Geez... why can't they ask a fan to write the synopsis, instead of someone who sounds like a disinterested parent?
Ok, well, at least the 9th movie synopsis is a little more on the mark.
