Shantelle Flavien, Resident Otaku
*Slow nostril exhale* So another Pokemon film. I feel like we are all done with Ash Pikachu and some legendary Pokemon that we have either not seen or seen in a different context with an OC, original character, that we NEVER talk about ever again. It's kinda like enough already please, please we get it.
A little bit. Sometimes I'm excited about a brand new pokemon movie but, that's mostly a fun mix of nostalgia towards the growth of Ash as a character and his undying friendship with the aforementioned Pikachu and the excitement towards the animation details and how cool and visually appetizing it all looks.
This time however we don't get one OC we get like four OCs, excuse me five. Five different characters with distinct personalities and pokemon that goes with their personalities or against them for dynamics. Honestly I think that it's fun with the new characters and the 'new' story. But it's also kinda meh. I'm excited about the character building because Pokemon does that well, but it's also kinda maybe do more?
