Discuss. Basically, I recently watched one of the 14th movies, and boy was it rubbish. I've been thinking since then about just how rubbish most of the Pokemon movies are. The first three do rank very highly, albeit with issues that may not gloss over so easily without nostalgia butting its nose in. The 8th movie however? It was just genuinely a brilliant movie. It stands alone in being able to evoke some genuine emotion while having a LOT of great action in it at the same time. There's some great humour in it, and the soundtrack is quite simply amazing. Everything since then has been an up and down attempt to make something better, but always failing. The 9th movie was as boring and dire as the 4th, 6th and 7th; the 10th was alright but daft; the 11th at the very least had a real antagonist but didn't really make any sense and the 12th and 13th just had very dull stories that let down their starring Pokemon. The 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th are all superior in almost every way to all the other movies - except the 8th. You may now attempt to disprove this assertion, or prove it by agreeing.
