    Default "ExtremeSpeed Genesect: Mewtwo Awakens" & "Pikachu and Eevee Friends" (Take Two)

    (Please note: If anyone had a legitimate review of the film posted in the old review thread, they are very welcome to repost it here.)

    On 13th July, the sixteenth Pokemon movie, entitled "ExtremeSpeed Genesect: Mewtwo Awakens", debuted in Japan, along with the latest Pikachu short, "Pikachu and Eevee Friends" (which marks the anime debut of new eeveelution on the block, Sylveon).

    The introduction of a second Mewtwo has of course been one of the film's major talking points, but please remember that this is NOT the place in which to rant or debate about how you feel with regards to the entire concept of a second Mewtwo. This is a thread in which to review and ask questions about the sixteenth Pokemon film. Opinions upon the role/portrayal of the new Mewtwo and comparisons with the old Mewtwo are perfectly acceptable, just be sure to keep everything pertinent to the content of the film.

    OK Got it, I think understand on this one i think. Does anyone know if the Sableye that was in the Movie had a Very significant Role in the Movie or not or did it use Moves at all or did it not at all because it is a shy Pokemon like the Summaries say about it.

    It wasn't *very* significant, but it did have a role to play. At around the halfway point Yamirami is the one who alerts Satoshi and the others to the fact that the Genosect are taking over Pokemon Hills. Later, Yamirami uses its Psychic powers to help create the cushion of water that helps break Myuutwo's and the Red Genosect's fall.

    Other than that, it just mostly sits there and looks cute.

    As for the shyness part...it acts kind of shy during the opening credits, hiding behind trees and whatnot, but it seems to get over it pretty quickly.

    Since this is for the short too, I want to know if we got to see any other powers Sylveon has, and if there seems to be a central theme to what it can do.

    I'm kind of curious about Musashi, Kojiro and Nyasu: did they...well contribute isn't really the right word, but did they have a lot of (comedy) scenes or was it just like the 14th movie, where they just got a little screentime?

    Also, did they meet Satoshi and friends?

    I'll just copy and paste what I posted on my site: "...Nymphia doesn't really use any attacks that can be identified at any point in the short. It just sort of twirls its ribbons around a bunch."

    They sort-of kind-of contributed. At one point in the movie, the Rocket trio's snuck into Pokemon Hills and watch as the Genosect make the cocoon. Kojirou points a bazooka and is about to fire when the Red Genosect (I think? It could have just been one of the regular Genosect) zips in and blasts them away. The bazooka falls onto one of the threads holding the cocoon in the air. Later, an attack or something shakes Pokemon Hills, causing Kojirou's bazooka to jostle loose and fall down toward one of the Genosect. I don't remember 100% what happened here, but I *think* it was Satoshi who has one of his pokemon push the bazooka away with an attack to prevent it from injuring the Genosect. This, in turn, helps the pokemon trust him more.

    Also, did they meet Satoshi and friends?
    Nope.

    Sounds trivial, but what Id really like to hear are the moves used. Did Mewtwo use Psystrike? Did the purple Genesct use anything other than Techno blast and Signal beam and did they have varying move sets? Sylveon may not have used moves but did the other Eeveelutuions?

    Just wondering, did "The Mother of Rohta" appear in this movie?

    According to Gin/Sunyshore: N, the Isshu Gym Leaders, the rivals, and some other Best Wishes characters all make cameo appearances in the credits.

    N in particular... I have no idea why they thought it was a cool idea to not include N in a major role in this movie, when he was the one that found out about Genesect breaking out of the P2 Laboratory in Episode N. Would have been a nice continuation of that. I guess he didn't care too much about Plasma's shenanigans being let loose. A little out-of-character, but alright. :/

    The Final Preview looked Great and the Douse Drive Genesect sounds like a 10 Year Old Kid to me and WHY DO I have the feeling that Billy Bob Thompson might Voice the Genesect with their Cry Maybe or Something.

    So...do Japanese kids get confused seeing "Monsters University" and "Pocket Monsters" together in theaters?

    ...Probably? I don't really pay attention to pokemon movesets.

    The pre-order bonus Myuutwo available right now can use Psycho Break, Ice Beam, Heal Pulse, and Hurricane but I'm quite certain we never see it use Ice Beam or Heal Pulse in the movie.

    I remember seeing her daughter in the end credits. If the mom also appears, it was one of those "blink and you'll miss it" cameos.

    They had enough to cram into this movie as it was. Trying to shoehorn N into the story - a character who already got an entire arc to himself - means they would have had to cut some other stuff out.
