I didn’t understand the “chaos reigns” reference, so I looked it up. Long story short, I wound up watching Willem Dafoe cum blood. Thanks Jim.

I just can’t wait till you guys get to Pokemon 3. I wound up despising Pokemon 2000 when I went back to it as an adult despite it being my favorite of them when I was a kid, but Pokemon 3 is actually a legitimately good movie in its own right. I was shocked.

Does Professor Ivy look high as balls for the entire thing?

Slowking is truly amazing and I’m so sad he’s only in this movie.

Heh. I think the problem even with the good Pokémon movies (e.g. the DP movies) is that you still have to be a bit invested in the characters. If you don’t watch the show (as opposed to being just a fan of the games), you aren’t likely to easily become invested, since the movies generally assume a sort of a level of engagement. (Even though most of the later ones started with some basic blurb for the unfortunates seeing one with no clue, it really only tells you the very basic premise, e.g. Pokémon are a Thing, and people do… Read more »

I remember seeing this with my sister as a kid and her thinking the villain was David Bowie for some reason. That still gives me a chuckle watching it back.

I am thoroughly amused that you guys don’t bring up Tracey ONCE. I fucking HATED Tracey when I was a kid. He was boring and wasn’t Brock. Fun fact, Movie Boys, there’s a reason Brock is hanging with Doctor Ivy: parents complained that he was an offensive racial stereotype and so he was replaced by Tracey. ….They thought this. Because he had slanty eyes. ….I wonder if any of those parents know what projection means.

Heheh, when they announced they were doing Mewtwo returns last podcast I did wonder to myself if they’d catch on in time that Mewtwo is actually the 4th movie (I think…)

After the next resident evil, maybe the Netflix castlevania show? (Fuck Konami) Or maybe a gaming adjacent movie like Gamer or eXistenz by David Cronenberg?

The first movie, and this second one to a lesser extent, had enormous plot changes and mis-writes committed by the paranoid and overbearing 4Kids at the time, such as rewriting Mewtwo’s character and contriving an implausible world-ending plan for him to pursue. You can see a lot of useful comparisons between localized and Japanese versions of these and other Pokemon movies and episodes at the site Dogasu’s Backpack. For example, the original intended character stance of the rich villain (either “Lawrence III” over here or “Gelardan” over there) is that, in considering Pokemon to be display pieces, he prefers the… Read more »

So does this fit in at a certain point of the timeline of the show?

New rule:
All episodes must be editorialized in way too much detail from now on. Best Spin-Off content in ages.

On the soundtrack to this film (the cd that is) there was a romance song of Misty singing to Ash. As a kid I thought it was a legit romantic song that would get me all the girls.
Anyway I listened to that soundtrack on repeat, Pokémon mon mon mon
