Pokemon - Destiny Deoxys
[return to reviews]
Review by Alexander Lucard
 

Well, I’m sure everyone’s surprised it took this long for a Pokemon DVD to show up. Destiny Deoxys is the last 4Kids Pokemon film and the climax of the US version of Pokemon before Pokemon USA took over the scripting and voice acting and sent everything into a downward spiral that has pissed off every long time Pokemon fan to no end. Morale of the Story? Pokemon USA is amazingly retarded. Pokemon Company (Japan) is awesome.

Here’s all you really need to know about this film. It’s mostly Deoxys Vs. Rayquaza kicking each other’s asses for the majority of the film while all the humans and lesser Pokemon are trying to to be killed by debris or shrapnel. There are comedy bits with Munchlax and Team Rocket, the latter of which never interact with the main charactersm and Plusle and Minum get a nice big role, yet they never showed up in the Pokemon Ranger movie which would have made a lot more sense considering those are your Pokemon in that game…

This was a really well done Pokemon film with a lot of action and a fun story. Ash and friends trey to get a young boy named Tory over his fear of Pokemon while Ash tries to compete (and fails miserably) at the Battle Tower. Pikachu is awesome but he’s only a supporting character here because really, the movie is just about one hyper extended fight scene between Legendary Pokemon.

The animation is amazing and there were some scenes, especially at the very beginning where I was shocked by the literal thousands of Pokemon animated at once, each doing their own thing. There’s a cameo by Misty, Torkoal gets some scenes in and Snorlax helps save the day. Destiny Deoxys is just a fun little movie that sums up everything as to why Pokemon is so freaking awesome and adorable and addicting. A great story, great acting, great animation, great pacing, and some of my favorite anime characters doing what they do best. Adieu 4Kids. Pokemon was the only thing you ever got right, and no you can’t even do that.

Stupid Pokemon USA.

Is It Worth Keeping Very Much So
