I got this movie for my birthday, and I watched it about three times over. If you haven't seen the movie, then this is the story.
A young boy (who is actually a young Prof. Oak) ventures into the forest where Celebi lurks. He doesn't know this, but when a Scyther and Houndoom catches Celebi, the boy (named Sammy) saves the Celebi. It travels to the future and they meet Ash, Brock and Misty and Pikachu, but Celebi has already fled. They find the afraid Celebi in a small cave, but Sammy takes it and Celebi takes a great liking to Sammy and Ash. When Celebi grows weak, they bathe it in the Lake of Life.
A serious Team Rocket member possesses a ball called a 'Dark Ball' which catches the Pokemon and turns it evil. It catches Celebi, and the Rocket commands Celebi to destroy the forest. Suicune, who appears, takes Ash and Sammy to Celebi, and they manage to get Celebi away. But Celebi is in trouble! It falls, and they cannot awake it in the Lake of Life as the water is dirty. Suicune purifies the water but Celebi does not awaken. They realise that poor Celebi has died, and everybody weeps. Then thousands of Celebi appear and revive Celebi! It takes Sammy back in time to his own time, and Ash has an emotional goodbye to him. When they get back on the boat after talking to Oak, he looks in that sketchbook that has a faded picture of Pikachu and Celebi, and thinks it was only yesterday.
The only down thing about this film is that I don't like the way Sammy acts about Celebi. He acts as if it was his own!
