Wow They FINALLY Got The DVD Right Again!!!

  • Sep 6, 2001
The first Pokemon movie DVD that came out was a great deal! Many intresting special features were included that made the price well worth it! However the Pokemon 2000 DVD was a joke. It lacked everything. The only thing you could really say for it was that it had the theatrical trailer (Sad huh?)! However I am pleased to say Warner has gotten this one right! We have the free trading card, a COMMENTARY, DVD-Rom features, and the best part (Or one of the best things to come out of edited anime DVD's that is) THE JAPANESE TRAILER FOR POKEMON 4!!!!!!! This makes me so happy to see that WB is making the Japanese stuff known (That, or mabye they were trying to save some money on making a trailer for the forth movie themselves. Sneaky.)!

However there are still some flaws even though they did MUCH better then last year! For one thing, there's no option for widescreen (Which dissapoints me GREATLY!). No Japanese audio track. They have the making of "To Know The Unknown" music video, but they don't have the ACTUAL music video on the disk! And the Johto Pokerap is TERRIBLE (Even though I already knew it was after listening to the CD)! I never dreamed I would miss the old Pokerap ao much. And the last problem is they still have the mini-movie there (WB, if I wanted to buy the mini-movies, I'LL BUY THE MINI-MOVIES!!!! You DON'T need to put them on the movie disks!).

But even so this is a great buy. A great movie. And a great addition for any Pokemon fan! Highly recomended!

This release of the film includes the 20 minute short, "Pikachu and Pichu," that aired before the beginning of the film when it was screened in theatres; the short is also includes the introduction of the Pichu Brothers. However, you cannot choose to watch the short by itself; you have to select "Play" on the main menu in order to view it.    There ended up being six special features included on this DVD release. The first is a documentary called, "Making of 'To Know the Unknown'." …

About this movie


The most elaborate of the features to date,Pokémon 3: The Movie, Spell of the Unownintroduces new Pokémon that debuted in the fall of 2000 in the Gold- and Silver-edition Gameboy games. En route to the Johto Tournament, Ash, Brock, and Misty visit the mountain village of Greenfield, where they encounter an 8-year-old girl named Molly. Her father, Professor Spencer Hale, disappeared when he set off to study the Unown, a group of 26 Pokémon that resemble letters. The Unown build a baroque crystalline shell around Molly's palatial home, send the leonine Entei to watch over her, and grant whatever she wishes--except the return of her father. What Molly really wants is a family: she refers to Entei as her father and has him kidnap Ash's mom to be her mother. Ash charges to the rescue with the help of Pikachu, Charizard, and Cyndaquil. In the climactic battle, Ash is joined by Brock and Misty, as well as the usually villainous Team Rocket. ("We figure if we don't help you, we're outta showbiz," Meowth explains.) Molly's father eventually reappears, but the viewer never sees the reunion with his daughter. Ash, Molly, and the other two-dimensional characters simply don't fit into three-dimensional, computer-generated crystal settings, and large sections ofPokémon 3look like two movies unsuccessfully spliced together. A short is also included, "Pikachu and Pichu," in which the popular electric Pokémon wanders through a big city, getting into mischief...
