I am now 26 and got into Pokemon at age 9. This is a plotline I have been waiting years for. Adult Pokemon fans won't be disappointed. Even though season 1 is pretty much thrown down the drain I Choose You makes Ash's journey less kiddie with some scenes that are pretty heavy and dark for Pokemon. It was also refreshing to see Ash more mature (even though he's 10) and not so much of a "noob" like he always seems to be. Overall what I appreciate most is this movie will be appreciated by the younger generation and the older. My main dislike is that the movie doesn't stay clear on where Ash and his friends are. With the array of Pokemon you see it's hard to tell what region he is in (I'm going to guess Johto due to legendary lure).
Something I've dropped a couple of times after watching the first five minutes and thinking "Why watch this when I've already seen the original anime and will probably prefer it", well after giving it a chance, I was wrong. Very good nostalgia trip for those who grew up with Pokemon and I'm sure the younger generation will love it too with it's modern twists. A new look at the original story, even if you've seen the original series, it's different enough that you'll not know what is round the corner.
