Product Description

Product Description

Second animated feature for Pokémon trainer Ash and his chums. Unscrupulous collector Lawrence III is determined to add Moltres, Zapdos and Articuno - the three largest Pokémon - to his hoard, and in so doing calls upon the legendary undersea creature Lugia. The abduction of Moltres has a devastating affect on Earth's weather systems, with the result that Ash and his friends find themselves stranded on Shamouti Island after a typhoon. There Ash is claimed by the natives as 'The Chosen One' - a being who can restore order by uniting three spheres in the local temple. With the aid of his Pokémon and rival trainers Team Rocket, Ash sets about foiling Lawrence III's evil scheme. Also included is the short film 'Pikachu's Rescue Adventure'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Pokémon 2000, the second film to spin off the powerhouse child-friendly franchise of the turn-of-the-millennium, consists of the colourful if babyish human-presence free, short Pikachu's Rescue Adventure and the more elaborate feature The Power of One. The main attraction is up to snuff animation-wise, with imaginative settings (an island lair, a huge dirigible) that crossbreed cyberpunk futurism and Jules Verne style retro-fantasy. It even has the germ of an interesting, almost subversive idea, in that the story's wealthy villain is a green-haired fanatic who is as obsessive about collecting Pokémon as the film's target audience--he's after three fabled birds, Moltres, Zapdos and Articuno, but is really interested in the cute Loch Ness Monster-type being Lugia--but his philosophy is so skewed that he is more interested in owning and numbering the fabulous creatures than training or befriending them. A clever pun in a prophecy decrees that in a predestined crisis, "the world will turn to ash"--this turns out not to be a gloomy foretelling of holocaust but the revelation that human hero Ash is a messianic "Chosen One" who can restore the balance of nature when the collector's antics have unleashed worldwide climatic change.

Adults might find the whole thing an endurance test for its shrill voicings, with Americanised kids and Japanese baby-talking Pokémon, not to mention the meld of incredibly simplistic storyline with amazingly intricate backstory. A trace of self-awareness comes in a brief snippet from a Weird Al Yankovic's song ("Polka mon") under the crowded end credits. --Kim Newman

Format: VHS Tape
Many supposedly 'true' anime fans may consider Pokemon not to be anime as it has become hugely popular, but I, a big anime fan (I love everything from Pokemon to 'Ghost in the Shell') absolutely love the show and the movies, and I'm 19!!! It is cute, clever, and great for all ages to watch, but most people forget how serious, dark and adult the plots can get, espcially when it comes to the movies.
This one is a collosal one. I think the actual storyline is based upon a story by Satoshi Tajiri, the creator of the games. It has something for everyone; action,
suspense, humour, a stong moral about how greed can corrupt and even a little Pokeshipping romance with Misty almost confessing to the fact that she has deep feelings for her best friend Ash. The way the plot is laid out makes it acceptable for both kids (who can esily see the obvious plot) and for teens and adults (who can see the intricately woven hiden plot).
Personally I believe that Pokemon is great for all ages, anime and non-anime fan alike, and, along with Harry Potter, is possible the best thing a young kid can be interested in.
I do find it strange, however, that probably the best Pokemon movie was made to go along with it's worst season, the Orange Islands League.

Well, I saw this in the cinema when it came out... it's wonderful. There's a better plot to this film than of the first one, and a moral that's just as important. I think that even if you're not a fan of Pokémon that this could possibly interest you...
When Moltres, Zapdos and Articuno are kidnapped by an evil Pokémon Collector (he's not a trainer, he just collects them) it's up to Ash to gather mystical stones and save the world. Again.
And that's about it, in a nutshell. An age old battle between good and evil, and proving that one person *can* make a difference if they try.
Well, at least kids will love it if nothing else...

This is a great movie, just as good as the first. Once again, Ash is the hero. This movie is the right length, not rushed and still has a film feel to it rather than an extended episode. The music score is great, along with the animation and the detail in drawing.
Once again this movie has a mini movie which is equally as fun as the first, and smaller pokemon fans will love it.
More pok'emon magic!

Now this is what I call a Movie! Action packed good humour good music and grapics (Japaneise anime with some computer grapics thrown in) and on top of that there's a good healthy moral too: that any individual can make the difference if you just put yourself forward. Kids will love this! Go buy it!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By The 90's Guy on 31 Dec. 2011
Format: DVD
"One person can make all the difference." That is the quote that can be read on both the front and the back of the DVD case. It seemed so epic at the time of the release of the 2nd Pokémon movie. The craze was still going strong, and people were beginning to look forward to the prospect of playing the Pokémon Gold and Silver Game Boy games after several months of playing the Red and Blue versions to near exhaustion.

Like the first movie, Pokémon The Movie 2000 starts off with a mini adventure featuring Pikachu, which is entitled "Pikachu's Rescue Adventure." The little egg Pokémon Togepi has fallen down a large hole, closely followed by the other Pokémon. They all end up in a mysterious forest with lots of different Pokémon roaming around the place. Pikachu's mission is to find and rescue Togepi and get back to the camp site before Ash, Misty and Tracey wake up from their extended nap. The mini-movie doesn't have the same amusing moments as Pikachu's Vacation, and the lack of any English dialogue makes it at times hard to understand what is actually going on.

The main attraction is called "The Power Of One." A mild-mannered sounding guy who sees himself as a collector tries to capture the three ancient bird Pokémon: Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno.

Format: VHS Tape
Well what can I say about Anime? I love it. I truly do. Its broad scope. Its dynamic. Its an art style all of its own. Such popular Animes as Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away are among some of my top favourite animated films of all time. Pokemon the Movie 2000 is no exception. Released at the dawn of the new millennium, this Japanese tale of prophesy and heroism was a cinematic hit and like the Pokemon movie that proceeded it found favour with the fans. The plot takes place during Season 2 of the show. Ash, Misty and Tracy are journeying through the Orange Islands when they are shipwrecked on Shamooti Island. There they learn of an ancient prophesy, that the harmony of fire, ice and lightning has been disturbed and only one person can restore the balance. That person as it turns out is Ash. It should be noted that this is the only Pokemon movie featuring the character of Tracy in a role that is not a brief cameo but a fully fledged supporting character. The Team Rocket trio supply the necessary barrels of humour needed in the narrative to detract from the almost overpowering intensity of a potential apocalypse not too removed from real life (it involves sea currents threatening to flood the planet). The quest based adventure was engaging and the pop culture based gags (a majority atypically emanating of course from Team Rocket) were used in equal measure. The prophesy itself was a clever puzzle with a degree of ingenuity behind it. The new Pokemon Lugia was breathtaking and majestic without being distracting. The Collector character was a charasmatic enigma who sadly never reappeared since in the franchise. A shame too as his voice actor did well in conveying obsession and detachment simultaneously, without ever going OTT.Read more ›
