Storyline

On a remote island the Pokemon have their holidays. It is generally a very peaceful time of fun and relaxation, however, when Pikachu goes there for his break, he finds things less than fun as he has a baby Pokemon to look after; a baby that is difficult to keep happy and entertained leading to conflict between him and other groups of Pokemon.

Pika pika!
17 November 1999 | by aDamRulz69See all my reviews

Well this was just a great... movie. Sure it's only 20 some minutes long but it's not like anyone had to pay full admission price for this one. It's great. Just 100% Pokémon. None of those humans to get in the way... well no faces at least.
