When to Watch the Pokemon Movies

The Pokemon films do run concurrent to the series' but as side stories mostly. Still there are better times to watch these than others. The preferred method used by many is to watch a film after the latest episode that aired in Japan before the films theatrical release. In Japan Pokemon doesn't air on TV when each film is released theatrically.

Thanks a lot for this list; it's really useful :)

Great list. I suggest putting the reasons why? That would be really helpful. For example, best viewed after x episode of y series becase [insert reason here - that episode introduces the character? they've already gone to that region/it's a side story from there? etc]
