Pokemon Movie 12: Arceus and the Jewel of Life main image

Thousands of years ago, the deity pokemon Arceus was injured and fell from the sky, only to be saved by a man named Damos who rushed to the monster's aid. In gratitude, Arceus loaned Damos a fragment of its power, the Jewel of Life, which the man used to restore the ruined Machina Town. But when it came time to reclaim the jewel, Arceus was betrayed and fell into a deep slumber, vowing vengeance on all of mankind. In the present, Ash and his friends arrive at Machina Town just in time for the beast to awaken and unleash its wrath upon the world, and it's up to Ash to go back in time to make things right. With the help of the legendary Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina, can Arceus' powerful rampage in the present be kept in check until Ash can quell its righteous anger in the past?

Score: 7/10

Putting the bad timing aside, let's get into the details.  No spoilers in this...go watch it for yourself.  XD Animation...not bad. ... read more
