    This looks good! The last few movies with the retconed Ash have been nailing it so far!

    Ah so its pretty much a Pokemon version of the Jungle Book.

    Wonder how long till we get a version of A Christmas Carol?

    So the main story is that Zarude adopted Coco and he doesn't want to leave him after Coco met Ash?
    Looks like a nice movie.

    Has a Pokémon movie (with full theatrical release) ever starred a female character (and by starred, I mean as the lead, not co-lead or a sidekick or anything like that)? If not... I wonder why not. Pokémon fandom is probably more male than female, but I'm not even sure I understand why that is nowadays - unless it's the focus on one male character most of the time...

    The movies truly took a turn for the better when they decided to do an alternate Ash/world with familiar characters yet different from the regular, TV show Ash. Some of the later movies in the BW and XY eras of the anime left *a lot* to be desired.

    It became too routine and safe whereas the newer movies are actually trying new ideas.

    It's probably a japanese culture thing. Typically anime focuses on a young man, typically not of an adults age. Think Dragonball, Goku is like 6 when that starts. In GT he gets turned back into a kid because the writers were not comfortable with Pan (granddaughter) being the lead.
