    I wouldn't call it shoehorning either, at least in the hypothetical scenario that involves the movie delving into N further investigating the Genesect problem. N was part of the prelude to the Genesect movie, after all. It's out-of-character for him to just drop it regardless. (Actually, I think N looking into the Genesect problem would have made for a better prologue than the Mewtwo one.)

    As confused as they get when they see those blasted "Digital Monsters" running about on television. Don't get me started when Doraemon-related commercials air consecutively after Pokemon commercials.

    Well since Summerly Slope was used in the movie, it'll be interesting to see what the extended version of It's Always You and Me will sound like if TPCi uses it in the dub.

    Also, a bunch of Ishizumai find Dent's Iwapalace and start to fanboy / fangirl over it, presumably because Iwapalace is this cool evolved pokemon. They then start to follow Iwapalace around the park.
    This sounds really, really cute. It was annoying Iwapalace's characterization as a Ishizumai was lost, so this is nice.

    There's this really funny scene where Satoshi is asking Genosect if it's lost. He says the word for lost child - maigo (迷子) - but it seems like Genosect doesn't understand what that means. So, after thinking for a minute, he stands up and shouts ""Mo~m!? Mo~m!? Where are you?" - Y'know, someone like that."
    This Moe-sect will be the death of me, that's just adorable.

    • When Satoshi and his friends arrive at Pokemon Hills, Dent talks about how lucky (ラッキー) they are that they get to see this facility before it's opened to the public. Satoshi gets excited and thinks Dent's saying that there's a Lucky (also ラッキー) in the area, prompting Iris to chastise him for being ridiculous. And then, as if to make Iris look stupid, an actual Lucky walks by! The same pun is repeated again with the Rocket-Dan later in the movie.
    Haha, I really like this part.

    I also wanted to ask, how was Iris' design in this movie? Was it more accurate than M15?

    I loved the movie theme song "Egao" ever since I heard it in the preview, but now I simply can't stop listening to the full version. It' such a cheerful song. : )

    Did Ash's Pokémon do anything? Did Charizard have a lot of screentime and do something noteworthy?

    What Pokemon not shown in the previews lived in Pokemon Hills?

    And speaking of which, I'm shocked that they didn't include any Kalos Pokemon in the area. I mean, it certainly would've made more sense than Ordile.

    Not really. He let out all his pokemon at the beginning of the movie so they could play during the opening credits. Other than that, we don't really see any of his pokemon until he has his Mijumaru join in with the other Water-Types to extinguish the fire that breaks out in Pokemon Hills. His Lizardon also helps break Myuutwo's / Red Genosect's fall at the end.

    If you're interested, the Japanese Amazon website is one of the places where you can legally hear samples of some of the pieces of music from this movie and mini-movie.

    Again, all they did was set up a Chevhok's Gun:

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.
