    Default Japanese Pokémon box office earnings exceed ¥40 billion: Ninth movie continues to do badly, ...

    Toho has announced that the sum of the box office earnings of the Pokémon movies have exceed ¥40 billion (approx. US$342 million) with the ninth movie of the series, ''Pokémon Ranger and the Prince of the Sea: Manaphy'', which completed its official theatrical run just last Friday, though over 250 cinemas will continue screening the movie. The ninth movie itself, however, has not fared so well compared to the last three movies.

    Dangggg, Pokemon is dying compared to the previous movies. The boring director guy needs to get his act together!

    Nah, it's just that AG has worn out its welcome. (Look at M4 and M5, they did horrendously.)

    The 5th movie really did poorly. I guess the last movies of each gen don't do as well because people get bored during the late transition from each series.

    Most likely, considering movie 5 did worse than Prince of the Sea, and that was the last movie of the original series........

    Rather than look on this as a bad thing, we should look on how well the movie did, considering it's the last of the AG series, and how well it's done in comparison to the last movies of the original series.

    Not too mention, wasn't this movie competing with Pirates of The Carribean and a Ghibli Movie?

    And Pixar's Cars.

    Though I wouldn't think they'd be worried about competition from Naruto considering how much better Advanced Generation has been doing in the ratings than Naruto.

    I've been looking at the weekly ratings, and Naruto has been getting higher, even with the fillers....

    just...sad...
