    Default Pokémon the Movie: Kyurem VS. The Sword of Justice

    M15 - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia

Ash and the others barely manage to escape the rampaging Kyurem’s attack, and as the dust settles, they turn their attention to the injured Pokémon. Their new acquaintance turns out to be the Mythical Pokémon Keldeo, and it’s on a mission to rescue its friends—Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion, the Legendary Pokémon known as the Swords of Justice—from Kyurem’s icy clutches!
    But Kyurem’s rampage isn’t over, and it’s drawing power from Reshiram and Zekrom, changing into Black Kyurem or White Kyurem to make its attacks even stronger! Why is Kyurem attacking Ash and his friends with such unrelenting fury? How will they be able to overcome this danger?
    To protect its friends, to discover true power and genuine courage, and to preserve its bond with Ash and its companions, a hidden strength awakens within Keldeo...
    The movie aired in Canada on YTV a few hours before the movie was set to air on Cartoon Network. When the movie airs on Cartoon Network, the thread will be temporarily locked to prevent spam.

    Welp, it's about to start.

    Hope Cartoon Network doesn't pull any editing for more ad time BS like they did with the 13th movie.

    Well, it took Keldeo an hour and a half to do it, but he finally got his sword up. And it was huge.

    Here are some comments I made during the Canadian airing.



    I really liked this movie. Not only was the art stunning and the story fantastic, but the characters were great. Kyurem was mysterious and scary. I sort of wish he appeared more, but at least he was always menacing. And he didn't steal the scene, which allowed more Keldeo/Ash bonding. :3

    You can tell just house close the Swords of Justice are with Keldeo; Keldeo's hero worship of them is adorable.

    The movie got dull at times, but the cute dynamic between the characters and the art made up for those moments.

    Sure did. This movie rocked. But I wish they didn't cut out the end credits montage.

    I really liked the movie! It was very different from the others and was very simple. It also seemed to use the old pattern, but changed it up a bit in the end! Kinda like the 14th movie!

    I wouldn't call it the best Pokémon Movie, but its in the top 10 for me! ^^

    A friend and I came up with a nickname for Keldeo: "Kedward Elric." :P

    It did surprise me when I first heard Vic's voice in this movie (I knew that he did the Professor's voice in the Elgyem episode but I didn't know about him doing Keldoe's voice until I actually saw the movie) but I really think that his voice fit Keldeo's character perfectly.

    This movie wasn't one of the best, but it was still enjoyable, and I really liked Keldoeo's character. Its probably one of my favorite 'telepathy speaking' Pokemon so far.

    It kind of seemed like Ash wasn't all that involved towards the end. Of course he helped Keldeo and cheered him on, but he didn't do as much as he does in the other movies battle wise. Keldeo was really the main star of this movie and it was a nice change from the usual "Ash saves the day" plot.

    Look Forward, Team Rocket!

    Also I claim Piplup in the Claim a Pokemon thread =)

    I'm betting Cartoon Network made a ton of time cuts based on them apparently only setting aside an hour and a half to air the whole thing. Unless the 92 minute runtime I'm seeing on Japanese sites is for both the Keldeo main feature and the Meloetta short?

    There was no cuts from what I could see... only the annoying commercials :/

    But of cause, I could be wrong. I'm always wrong XD

    I liked this movie also probably not the best pokemon movie for me. It's cool Iris has a flashback in this movie and Iris said Kyurem is the most strongest pokemon in the world or Kyurem is the strongest pokemon in the world I don't know that's true or not because Arceus is stronger than Kyurem. I was expecting for this movie to be longer instead of Cartoon Network cutting the very beginning of the movie.

    Was the beginning cut off? Didn't seem like it to me...

    A strong movie I think, despite its flaws.

    The art is almost worth the viewing alone. I was almost disappointed when the gang left the city, because it was just so gorgeous to look at.

    I was surprised at Ash's ingenuity when it came to using Boldore as a sled.

    The movie had its funny bits. I laughed at Cilan trying to ride Terrakion when escaping. Iris continued her fear of the cold, which made me smile.

    Perhaps my favorite bit of the entire movie though, was Scraggy nearly getting left behind at the train station. It fits perfectly with the childlike role he fills in the group. Him leaping into Ash's arms after Snivy pulled him in was cute too.

    ...Well, maybe the Meloetta short'll be a bonus episode on the DVD coming out... whenever.
    (This movie was a tad short...)

    So, the writers turned Edward Elric into a unicorn. Then Kyurem froze his teachers and broke his horn...
    And that's half the plot...

    Really, the plot seemed minimal in my eyes, but the action was impressive by Pokémon standards. (<-- Hasn't watched the anime in over a year)

    According to what? The video games that these animated projects ignore all the freaking time?

    I heard Iris say that Kyurem was the strongest Dragon-type in the world.
