This movie takes place sometime during the 2nd season of the tV show. While I have been reviewing later seasons of the show, I will be writing this from the aspect of watching the movie during the second season.
Unlike the last movie Ash and Pikechu got to actually participate in the action instead of just being spectators.
One of my biggest issues with this movie is that a number of the characters don’t feel like they belong in a Pokemon movie but should instead of been in a more serious anime.
Pokemon The Movie 2000 is far better then the first Pokemon movie and is a must watch for all pokefans.
