1Pokemon Movie - Lucario and The Mystery of Mew

I nearly cried at the end, this is an AMAZING movie, and actually my favorite Pokemon movie so far. If you haven't watched this yet, I insist you watch this as soon as you can!

This is part of what makes Lucario my second favorite Pokemon of all time, next to Unbound Hoopa. Lucario's distrust of humans is believable and emotional, and I loved the characters of both him and Sir Aaron. I really liked the ending, and the message of Sir Aaron through the Time Flower. Lucario's sacrifice was so emotional and awesome!

Beautiful movie. There is not too much of Pokemon battle but still an interesting movie. It is a good time pass movie from me. I will give it 3 out of 5

This Pokemon Movie is Lit and The part where lucario faded away sniff...

2Pokemon the First Movie - Mewtwo vs. Mew

For one, before I share my opinion, I'd like to say that I watched this movie at the same time as I watched the others because of age, so any movie I vote on has no nostalgic reasoning for me. There will be spoilers, so if you are like me, one of those people who read this lists before watching stuff, beware. :P

So, here is a summary of the movie. Ash, Misty, and Brock get a message to go to a strange island, but later a dangerous storm holds them and all the other trainers back. Later, they arrive at the island to find an intelligent Pokemon that can talk and has extremely powerful psychic powers. Everyone attempts battling it, but fails. Mewtwo wants revenge on humans because he was completely created as an experiment. He creates clones and makes the real Pokemon fight these clones. Mew, whom Mewtwo was cloned from battles Mewtwo, but Ash jumps between them and dies. All the Pokemon, including the clones cry, healing Ash with their tears. Mewtwo is surprised by the bond of ...more

The ending was so emotional! I loved the adventure and friendship aspects of this movie, and sympathize with Mewtwo. This movie is amazing!

This is actually now, my favorite movie - Adamshane1999

Doraemon is better cartoon than pokemon

3Pokemon - The Movie 2000

I liked it when Melody kissed Ash on the cheek. It was so romantic that I didn't have time to be mad at Misty.

Ash is the love of my life.

Best Pokemon movie of all time. nice plot, AWESOME music, great Pokemon, perfect balance - fullymetal

Best music ever! LUGIA'S SONG MADE ME "CUT ONIONS"! I am those people who don't really cry but this movie made me!

I'm a bit biased since, Lugia is my favourite legendary.

4Pokemon Movie - The Rise of Darkrai

Best pokemon movie for me so far. This movie is what made Darkrai my fave pokemon, I love his story. - PopcornPelican

I Loved this Pokemon movie. For some reasons because It showed us that all the Pokemon movies are connected, also because palkia is my favorite Pokemon. Not the best but probably 2nd or 3rd

I'd watch this movie over and over again just for that perfect symphony of cinema in the final battle.

This should be at no.12

5Pokemon Heroes: The Movie

Surprisingly mature for a Pokémon movie, with some real risks and emotion. It may run for just barely an hour, but it's one you won't forget.

And don't even get me started on some of the music. "Search For the Girl" (the song that plays as Ash chases Latias through the streets of Alto Mare) is beautifully simplistic, and just amazingly well-put-together. Even seven years after I first watched the movie, I still can't get that theme out of my head. When I flew to Venice (the city Alto Mare is designed upon, for those who didn't figure from all the canals), I couldn't help but play that piece as I strolled through the streets myself; it just fits incredibly well.

Definitely more than you'd expect from a Pokémon movie. Of course, it is still flawed (Bianca doesn't have much character development aside from her friendship with Latias), but they pale into insignificance. And you know a movie's good when people are still arguing fourteen years after its release about who ...more

This was an amazing movie and deserves to be in the top 5. Somehow even if its flawed with the characters, it did something I never expected from a Pokemon movie and that was to include real risks in relationships. Ash and Latias' relationship is beautiful, because I ship them so hard because of this movie.

The only Pokemon movie where I actually cried. Latios and Latias are so cute, and the story is awesome, too. I'd recommend this movie if you want to watch a Pokemon movie.

The brother-sister dynamic between Latios and Latias is shown perfectly here! I love this movie!

6Pokemon 3 - The Movie

Honestly, this is the first Pokemon film to actually deal with real life issues that people struggle with in the real world. Both the first two movies were good, but this is why The Spell of the Unown is the best. Molly the antagonist doesn't really want to be the antagonist, all she wants is to have her broken family back. The film deals with feelings such as loss and regret, something that Mewtwo and 2000 lacked. Both Ash and Molly's journeys through the film manage to highlight this, with Ash wanting to save his mother (who has a much better and relevant role in this movie) and Molly just wanting to have a family back. In the end, Molly does see her father again, and Ash reunites with his mother, but the feelings that surface through The Spell of Unown still matter today, and the movie still brings out the same emotions in me that it did when I was 3. Ultimately, this is truly a masterpiece.

This is just excellent, everything about this movie is done right, from Ash's motivation to be part of the adventure, to cause, the tone, it's all just fantastic.

Entei is my all time favorite and how he was used in this film was absolutely incredible I have loved since childhood and will show my kids it one day

This was, hands down, the best Pokemon movie to date. Emotionally impacting, just like any quality film that you could watch.

7Pokemon: Arceus & The Jewel of Life

Sheena's friend, Alex, serves no purpose whatsoever in this movie. And Ash is apparently Jesus, according to the scene near the beginning where he runs across the surface an entire lake without falling through.

It's just silly little errors like that really bring down what was otherwise a pretty decent movie.

This is the best Pokemon movie because arceus is shown in this movie the strongest Pokemon and the god of all Pokemon's

I liked everything in this film apart from Arceus' stupid voice acting!

I'm pretty sure that Sheena's friend was called Kevin. Good movie by the way

8Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea

Beautiful movie and emotional too. This movie has great animation and may is the star of this movie. If you love cute water Pokemon then watch this movie. You experience watching the journey through water and their are pirates too. If you are a true Pokemon fan then do watch it. This movie is from advanced generation.

A charming, yet interesting approach to the Pokemon movies. This movie follows a plot similar to it's predecessor, but it plays out much differently. Yes, the plots are similar, and the story can seem to drag several times, but overall it really is a great movie. Seeing a Pokemon Ranger's perspective is very unique in my opinion, and I think Jackie was the perfect Ranger for this movie to play out around. His character seemed to develop the most throughout the movie (aside from May, of course) and he really has stuck in my mind ever since I first saw the movie about 10 years ago. Plus, the added bonus of tons of water Pokemon is like the icing on the cake.
Overall, I highly recommend this film for all lover of the Pokemon franchise, especially lovers of Pokemon Rangers, water-type Pokemon, May, and pretty good music.
(P.S. Listen to the ending song on YouTube. Its called "Together We'll Make a Promise". This song ties the whole movie together.)

9Pokemon: Giratina & The Sky Warrior

Shaymin is my favorite thing ever so yeah I liked this

Like the film 'Hoopa and the Clash of Ages.' this movie has my two favourite legendarys regigigas and giratina. And Diagla is in the film, so its amazing.

I heard that in the first match there was ruby,sapphire,emerald protaganist Brendan.

10Pokemon - Destiny Deoxys

The most iconic scene of the movie was the beginning when Deoxys came crashing down to earth and had the greatest beatdown on a legendary Pokemon ever when he fought Rayquaza.

I am educated for the future and so I cried.

11Pokemon - Zoroark: Master of Illusions

One of the darkest Pokemon entries yet. I felt so connected to the characters though. I really wish there was more Zoroark & Zorua in other films or the animated series. The villain was the best of the series. And the end was emotional. This deserves #1 or top 3 at least

Amazing movie and includes one of the dark but interesting Pokemon ever! Exciting and has a great storyline. My personal favourite followed by Pokemon 3 : Spell of the unown

A wonderful piece of art. I love Zoroark in this movie, and I love its pokemon movies. I would watch this again because it was emotional and had a good plot.

One of the few Pokemon movies with plot twists. Also, the art is awesome.

13Pokemon the Movie: Hoopa and the Clash of Ages

Best plot better than all this is well done better than all of the movies

I am watching this movie now and it is amazing

How is this on here! > This entire movie was an abomination. I didn't see it in theaters, and I'm glad I didn't waste my money on something as awful as this.

This movie was one of the best. Hoopa is a beast with a really interesting story.

15Pokemon: The First Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back

This is the first Pokemon movie, and also the First Pokemon movie I had seen, it deserves 1st position, the whole movie was so great!.

Sorry, I got confused in Pokemon the first movie, because of the different titels, by the way, can anyone tell me is there any diffrence in both of them

16Pokemon the Movie: Genesect and the Legend Awakened

Ok film. Not the best though but it was nice to see Mewtwo again brings back memories. Quite intense film but that's a good thing. Just was missing something that other Pokemon films had. Such as Pokemon 2000, Pokemon Spell Of The Unown, Rise of Darkrai, Zoroark Master of Illusions and Diancie & The Cocoon of Justice.

17Pokemon Movie: Mewtwo Returns
18Pokemon the Movie: Kyurem vs. the Sword of Justice

This was a beautiful movie, and I felt relatable to the characters. The animation was amazing. I love Keldeo, and I love the sword of Justice. This movie really blew my mind.

Why does everyone assume that Virizion is a girl?

This I Liked Much A Sensational Movie

20Pokemon Movie: Black - Victini / White - Victini

I loved how there were two versions of the same movie, but the Legendary Pokemon's roles are switched in each one!

This is one of the best Pokemon movies but why is this the last in the list

This movie was enjoyable! Victini is adorable and they are really good legendaries! The storyline was good and Ash's relationship was enough for me to put this film in the top 10! Why is hoopa and diancies film above this! WAIT... WHY IS THIS LAST!

I love this film
