Pokemon Movie 16: Genesect and the Legend Awakened

A vast Pokémon habitat amid the hustle and bustle of the big city seems like the perfect new home for a group of five Genesect. The arrival of these Mythical Pokémon quickly becomes a problem, though: their nest threatens the city’s power supply, and they keep attacking anyone who approaches it. On top of that, they’ve attracted the attention of the Legendary Pokémon Mewtwo, who sympathizes with them because its own origins also involve human tampering. The group’s leader, known as Red Genesect, doesn’t trust Mewtwo, and their confrontation quickly rages out of control! Can Ash and friends stop these two powerful Pokémon before they destroy the city?

I just have to react on this one.
I'm a huge fan of Pokémon myself and I found myself disliking this movie. The 30min intro-movie was great I thought. I was hoping for another action/animation movie with Mewtwo in it. This movie doesn't contain the same Mewtwo, it's not only another voice actor (actress) but it has also a more 'round' female face. In my memories mewtwo was created by men (it (she?)... read more
