Soon, Seto and Yugi will face each other in an epic battle – but something mysterious is at work.

In a world where creatures known as Pokemon roam and would-be trainers capture and battle the beasts, the young Ash Ketchum can’t be happier; he has finally reached the age when he can have his very first Pokemon! Along with the electrical Pikachu and human buddies Brock and Misty, Ash must embark on a journey to battle countless others and become the best Pokemon Trainer of them all! From the Johto region to the Orange Islands, there’s plenty of Pokemon to catch and adventures to find, even if the infamous Team Rocket stands in the way!
Compared to the series, YuGiOh the movie is shorter and is more about the one big battle of cards. It is more about tactics and less about the fighting; yet it still gives off an atmosphere that will appeal younger anime fans. This can also be found in Pokemon.
In the Orange Islands, Moltres, the titan of fire; Zapdos, the titan of lightning; and Articuno, the titan of ice, maintain a delicate balance of power with nature. It is said that if that balance is disturbed, the legendary Pokemon Lugia will rise from the depths of the ocean to help keep the peace. It is this legend that calls a rare Pokemon hunter to the islands; he seeks to capture the titans – and thus, Lugia itself – and he will stop at nothing to do so. Meanwhile, Ash, Misty and Tracey have arrived at the islands and end up becoming mysteriously shipwrecked on Shambouti Island – a place where an annual festival honoring the titans has just begun. Ash accepts the role of the ceremonial "Chosen One" who will find three orbs to represent the harmony between the titans; but thanks to the battle that now rages in the skies, he soon discovers that the ceremony he must take part in will have very real ramifications!
I think that if you enjoyed one, you will probably enjoy the other. Both are anime that were popular around the same time and i don't know why but i feel that this pair just works together. So yeah, give it a try if you haven't seen it yet.
