*SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS NOT A TEST!! AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE WILL FOLLOW!! XD*

 

Hi, everyone! Welcome to Gotta Review 'Em All part 2, where I'll be talking about the second Pokémon movie: The Power Of One! Now, before I go much further, let me explain something. I refer to the Orange Island series as Generation 1.5 because there are no games for it, and because it takes place between the original series and The Johto Journeys(Season 3.). As such, Generation II Pokemon made fairly frequent occurrences. By the way, being a Pokémon fanatic myself, I know that Nintendo would make a lot of people happy if they released a Pokémon game in which the player could go to the Orange Islands, since, aside from the fan-made game "Pokémon Naranja," that hasn't been possible. But I digress.

 

Alright, fair warning; I hope you like Donna Summer, because you'll hear a lot of her. Well, not her, but one of her songs. In fact, I'll be counting the number of times part of the song is played! Alright; let's do this! Without further ado, here's a synopsis, and review, of Pokémon: The Movie 2000, AKA The Power Of One!

 

The movie starts with a nice view of the ocean. 3 islands are visible in the distance.

 

*Power Of One count: 1(Background music.).*

 

The "camera" pulls back, showing another "island." I use quotation marks there because it looks more like a shrine than an island, but whatever. More pretty scenery is shown, as is a Generation II Pokémon: Slowking. Then, just like in the first movie, we're treated to a disembodied voice. This one, however, recites a prophecy.

 

"Disturb not the harmony of fire, ice, or lightning, lest these Titans wreak destruction upon the world in which they clash. Though the water's great guardian shall arise to quell the fighting, alone, its song will fail; thus, the Earth shall turn to ash. Oh, Chosen One, into thine hands bring together all 3. Their treasures combined tame the beast of the sea."

 

We're treated to a view of the inside of some sort of flying fortress(because fuck logic; this is Pokémon!), and we now see that the voice wasn't disembodied; it belongs to a dapper-looking man. His name is Lawrence III, but you're not supposed to know that yet, so this'll be our little secret; got it?

 

Anyway, he had been talking to himself, apparently, but a sudden beeping noise from behind him makes him turn around. Apparently, technology in the Pokémon world was advanced, even back then; Siri starts talking to him. She informs him that she has deciphered the prophecy and concluded that the Titans it refers to are Moltres(fire.), Articuno(ice.), and Zapdos(lightning.). They're very rare Pokemon, only found in Shamouti Island(according to the movie, at least; anybody who's actually played Pokémon knows that's bullshit.).

 

Lawrence asks Siri which one of the birds is closest, and she tells him that Moltres is. As such, he sets his sights on it first. It doesn't take him too long to find Moltres, and about the same amount of time to capture it within a forcefield generated by metal rings. Lawrence remarks how easy the capture was, and that, once he has Zapdos and Articuno, he'll find his true prize. Viewers are then treated to a scene that should be familiar to anyone who's played Pokémon Silver; Lugia swimming through the ocean.

 

*Power Of One count: 2(Lugia vocalizes it.).*

 

Another epic title sequence shows us the movie's alternate name: The Power Of One.

 

*Power Of One count: 3(a short, rock version is played during the title sequence.).*

 

With that out of the way, and now that the viewers know what they're watching, it cuts to a boat in the middle of the ocean, while the narrator points out what a beautiful day it is. We see that the main characters, including the captain, Maren, are on the boat. In particular, Pikachu is perched on a thin ledge, scowling. I guess, since he's an Electric type, they're using him to check for storms. That's actually pretty clever and funny at the same time.

 

So, as an excuse to show off their current teams, our heroes decide to let their Pokémon out to enjoy the beautiful day. We're treated to scenes of them playing around, set to a remix of the Season 2 theme song, "Pokemon World." Soon after that, the storm that I'm guessing they had Pikachu on the lookout for hits. The trainers recall their Pokémon, except for Ash's Pikachu, Misty's Togepi, and Tracey's Marill. Pikachu is left hanging onto the barrier on the bow of the boat.

 

*Power Of One count: 5(Lugia vocalizes it, then it's played as background music.).*

 

The storm, which disappeared as soon as it started, has nevertheless thrown our heroes off course; they're now headed toward Shamouti Island. The storm has also thrown Team Rocket around in their Mecha-Magikarp. One fourth wall break("An island!" "In a storm!" "I've seen this movie!"), and one McDonalds reference("We're about to be..." "Filet 'O Fish?"), later, they crash into a rock.

 

We are now shown what's going on back in Ash's hometown of Pallet Town. Ash's mom(whose name is first revealed in this movie to be "Delia.") is tending to her garden, while her Mr. Mime sweeps up. Professor Oak shows up to check on things, and he likes what he sees. He and Delia both comment on the nice weather, but, as if on cue, the weather turns nasty. It rains, then starts snowing. The viewers are treated to a beautiful aurora as a flock of Pidgey takes to the sky. All at once, the sky clears up. Oak(after almost being carried away by a huge group of Diglett.) points out that Pokémon are more in tune with nature than humans are, and the fact that the Pokémon are acting strange is a very bad sign.

 

We see that our heroes have made it, more or less unharmed, to Shamouti Island. Unfortunately, they're ambushed by a group of people dressed in bird costumes. Our heroes find out that Shamouti Island is currently host to a festival, and that a young girl named Melody is going to be the festival maiden. As for the role of the Chosen One, guess who takes that. You won't figure it out, but guess! It's Ash! Shocker; I know. Melody overhears that Ash is the Chosen One, and she gives him a "traditional welcome kiss." That pisses off Misty, which gets Melody's attention. She guesses that Misty is Ash's sister, and, after Misty refutes that claim, she guesses that she's Ash's girlfriend. Misty shoots down that possibility, as well, but Melody is intent on pissing her off even more. She says that there is a banquet that she'll be performing at, then tells Misty(calling her by name, even though Ash's friends hadn't introduced themselves yet.) not to get jealous.

 

Ash and his friends are led up some stairs, while surprisingly ominous music plays. Pikachu doesn't look too happy, but that's nothing out of the ordinary; he barely smiles at all throughout the entire movie. Anyway, the next minute or so that follows shows a big festival being held. After that, though, the festival isn't mentioned again, and we cut to the aforementioned banquet, and get to hear the end of what I'm sure was an adult joke("...and she says 'no, but I have Krabbys!'"). Misty is still mad at Melody, and takes her anger out on a piece of fried chicken. Ash, however, is more interested in what being "the Chosen One" entails.

 

*Power Of One count: 6(Melody plays it on her weird instrument.).*

 

Suddenly, all eyes are on Melody, as she plays a song while doing a weird jerky dance. She runs up to Ash and recites what I assume is another part of the prophecy from before.

 

"From the trio of islands, ancient spheres shall you take, for, between life and death, all the difference you'll make. O, Chosen One, you must climb to the shrine to make right what is wrong, and the world will be healed by the guardian's song!"

 

Ash doesn't quite understand, so Melody(using nearby fruit as props.) puts it in layman's terms for him.

 

*Power Of One count: 7(Melody plays it for a second or 2.).*

 

Now that Ash understands what he has to do, he wants to do it right away. Melody says he should stay for the party, but he's having none of it. Maren admires his enthusiasm, and offers to take him to the islands in her boat. Ash invites Misty, but she angrily declines. Then, completely unprovoked, Pikachu decides to be a dick and take Ash's treasured hat. Apparently, they made it to the boat, though, because the very next scene involves Team Rocket almost getting run over by it. Then, suddenly, it starts pouring rain again. We cut to the Slowking from earlier, reciting part of the "disturb not the harmony" part of the prophecy, before pointing out the sorry state of things, with a voice that wouldn't be out of place in an Emergency Alert System message. For those of you in the UK, who don't know what the Emergency Alert System is, I envy you. Slowking's voice in this part, and Lugia's speaking voice later, creep me out for reasons you luckily don't understand.

 

Back at the banquet, Melody decides that she's going to go after Ash, considering he's caught in the storm because of what Melody thinks is just a silly legend to entertain tourists. Misty and Tracey tag along, resulting in another back and forth between Melody and Misty, which, apparently, distracts them well enough for Team Rocket to stow away on their boat undetected.

 

Meanwhile, Lawrence III, in his floating fortress, points out a disturbance in the force, so to speak. Siri tells him that Zapdos is nearby, so he sets off in search of it. Now, we're shown a weather report that's being viewed by people on the island, as well as back in Pallet Town. The odd weather, though centered in the Orange Islands, is global. It seems to be caused by an underwater river. Delia, knowing that Ash is in the Orange Islands, is understandably worried. Then, we get to see another example of Pokémon technology; Professor Oak gets a call on Skype.

 

The call is from Professor Philena Ivy, a character exclusive to the Orange Islands arc. She confirms what Oak had already told Delia much earlier; the Pokémon are acting strange. We see a cameo appearance by Brock, as he runs back and forth, carrying Pokémon. Back on the boat, the storm is over for now, but that doesn't stop the waves from being treacherous. This results in the boat breaking it's rudder off on a rock, then getting washed ashore. At least the island they're stranded on is the one they were looking for. Pikachu runs off, because he's a dick, and Ash follows him.

 

Meanwhile, Melody is in hot pursuit of Ash, and she shows off some impressive boating skills. She assures Misty and Tracey that they don't need to worry, since she grew up around boats. Misty points out that she wasn't scared, anyway, since she's a Water type Gym Leader. Suddenly, the boat almost gets swallowed up by a huge wave. They avoid that, just in time for another huge wave to throw the boat into the air, and send Team Rocket flying. We see the interior of Maren's boat as Maren is about to have some coffee. Unfortunately, another wave crashes into the boat, causing Maren to spill the coffee. That's gotta hurt!

 

Melody's boat has landed on a giant rock, but everyone seems to be okay, although Maren's boat is wrecked. Suddenly, though, Melody's boat starts falling. Melody, however, reveals the sail of the boat and uses it to make the boat fly, taking advantage of the strong wind. Another back and forth between Melody and Misty later, and we get to see Lawrence III again. He pretends to feel sorry for Moltres, since it's all alone, but, when Siri tells him that Zapdos is near Fire Island, it becomes clear that Moltres won't be lonely for long.

 

Meanwhile, Pikachu has led Ash to the first of the 3 shrines he has to go to to get the spheres. Ash grabs the fire sphere, but has a fourth-wall breaking run-in with Team Rocket("...and make it double; we're on the big screen!" "I'll have to catch this on video!"). And cue the Deus Ex Machina; Melody's "flying" boat shows up and almost crushes them.

 

Melody scolds Ash for not staying at the party, but, when Misty butts in, Melody decides to piss her off by assuming she and Ash will get married. Team Rocket warns Misty about the dangers of romance just in time for Zapdos to come flying in and put on a kickass light show. Pikachu sees this giant bird of death, and decides to do the only rational thing: attack it! Or, at least, that's what it looks like. Meowth points out that Pikachu is actually trying to talk to Zapdos through those shocks, and even translates what Pikachu's saying; he wants to know why Zapdos is on Fire Island, and what happened to Moltres. Zapdos shocks him back, which Meowth also translates. Zapdos is taking Fire Island for itself, now that Moltres is gone.

 

With that, Zapdos goes apeshit and tries to shock everyone, but the electricity gets drawn upward by an unseen force. Well, unseen until it floats into view.

 

*Power Of One count: 8(background music.).*

 

Lawrence III is sucking up Zapdos' electricity with his fortress, which weakens it enough for him to capture it with the same method he used for Moltres. This time, though, he accidentally, and unknowingly, captures Melody's boat, and everyone on it, as well! Lawrence III remarks that all he needs now is Articuno. Then, we see another Pokémon Silver-esque scene.

 

*Power Of One count: 10(Lugia vocalizes it, then it's played as background music.).*

 

Lawrence III is alerted by Siri that the fortress picked up something extra when they were capturing Zapdos, so he goes to check on things. The chair he's sitting on happens to be on a platform that can rise and fall, so he reaches the holding area right after Melody reads the first part of the prophecy from earlier. He brags about his collection, which causes Misty to tell him off, calling him a bad trainer. Lawrence III, however, corrects her, saying he's just a collector. Apparently, he started with a Mew card. Just then, Siri tells him that Articuno is changing course, so he leaves to go after it. And now, we get to see the lovely Articuno screwing around, before the movie cuts to another news report.

 

This time, the news crew is flying in a helicopter, and they brought Oak, Ivy, and, for some reason, Delia, with them. Pokémon everywhere are trying to get to the Orange Islands, to try to stop whatever's going on. Oak explains that disturbances in the islands of fire, ice, and lightning are responsible for the crazy weather. Then, Ivy explains that the Pokémon are flocking to the islands because they want to correct the disturbances. Delia just wants to see Ash again. Then, we see Slowking, sad because he doesn't have pants. Um,... Alright?

 

Well, the blizzard ends as soon as it began, but we get to see more Articuno action, so that's cool. Back in the fortress, Melody rereads the same part of the prophecy she read before. James worries that he'll die, but Meowth assures him that he'll be fine, since only intelligent life will be destroyed. First thing's first, though; Moltres and Zapdos have to be freed.

 

Meanwhile, Lawrence III has his eyes on Articuno, and shows his desire for it by firing missiles at it! If he's a collector, shouldn't he be trying to capture the Pokémon he's collecting without hurting them, so they're more valuable? I still have my Fluttershy figure, and my posters(1 of which is an authentic Japanese movie poster for this movie.) from Comic-Con, in their box/bag. The less you handle them, the more they're worth. Anyway, it doesn't really matter, since Articuno dodges the missiles. We're treated with another quick Pokémon Silver-esque scene.

 

*Power Of One count: 11(background music. You have to listen carefully to hear it.).*

 

Back in the fortress, our heroes, and Team Rocket, try to free the birds by attacking the cages they're in. It doesn't work at first, but, when 4 Pokemon attack together, they break Moltres' cage. Moltres single-handedly breaks Zapdos' with Flamethrower, allowing them both to escape. Not exactly grateful, they both fly around, attacking each other, and they nearly destroy the fortress in the process. The damage they cause forces the fortress to crash land on Lightning Island. Everyone seems to be alright, but the shrine nearby is destroyed, causing the Lightning sphere to roll right up to Ash.

 

While our heroes, and Team Rocket, manage to get in Melody's boat, the birds keep on fighting, punctuated by a brief scene of an underwater tornado. Their fighting actually breaks part of the island, causing the boat, and everyone on it, to get swept away by a strong current. They prepare for a nasty fall, only to be saved by a waterspout.

 

*Power Of One count: 12(Lugia vocalizes it.).*

 

Team Rocket takes what I assume is the only life raft, but it doesn't really matter; soon, the boat ends up at another island. This one appears to be populated by the Slowking, who tells Ash to put the treasures in the 3 slots up ahead. Ash obeys, but soon finds that he's missing a sphere; the Ice sphere.

 

The birds are still fighting, so Ash runs up and tells them to stop. It, of course, doesn't work, but their fighting is interrupted anyway by the waterspout from before, which dissipates to reveal Lugia. Everyone gawks at it, and rightfully so, considering it's a Generation II Legendary Pokémon.

 

*Power Of One count: 13(Lugia vocalizes it.).*

 

Lugia's singing is familiar to Melody; she pulls out her ocarina-looking thing from the banquet, and realizes that the song she played on it was actually Lugia's song. Meanwhile, Lawrence III, surprisingly unharmed, now has Lugia in his sights!

 

The fighting continues, but Lugia is participating now, too, which makes for an epic battle. After a while, Melody recites the "water's great guardian" part of the prophecy, and Slowking points out the obvious("This looks bad!"). More fighting! Lugia puts up a good fight, but he can't keep up with 3 enemies at once, and gets shot out of the sky.

 

*Power Of One count: 14(background music.).*

 

With Lugia out of the way, the other 3 birds keep fighting, while Ash and the others look on in horror. The news crew helicopter flies in, and we see that Delia needs to rethink her priorities; she's more worried about Ash than she is about the fate of the world. Suddenly, the Pokémon that were trying to reach the islands finally arrive.

 

Everyone realizes that Ash is the actual Chosen One, but Ash isn't too keen on the idea of saving the world, even wishing his name was "Bob," so the prophecy wouldn't mention him. Melody remembers the similarity between her song and Lugia's song, so...

 

*Power Of One count: 15(Melody plays it.).*

 

Somehow, the song heals Lugia, so he chooses to talk directly to our heroes, and Team Rocket, in one of the creepiest, and most surprising, voices I've ever heard. He explains that, in order to stop the fighting, the 3 spheres have to be put in the slots, but that only Ash can do it, because he's the only one who can make the spheres glow. He says that Ash doesn't have to do it if he doesn't want to, and Ash is, understandably, hesitant. But, then, a miracle happens. Pikachu smiles! He gives him an unintelligible pep talk, along with Ash's other Pokémon, who emerge from their Pokéballs. Moved by the pep talk, Ash decides to finish the quest. This admittedly powerful moment is cut short in the very next scene, in which Ash makes a joke while trudging through the snow("Right now, I feel more like The Frozen One!").

 

After face-planting, Ash wonders if the prophecy was wrong. When Pikachu points out a wrecked boat nearby, though, Ash gets an idea. We cut to his Pokémon towing the wreckage, with Ash on it, at breakneck speed, while Lugia follows closely. Back with the others, Team Rocket laments that they're unimportant. Meowth says that they could be heroes if they were given a chance. Well, they get their chance; the news helicopter crashes(luckily not hurting anyone.) right next to them, which gives them an idea.

 

Back to Ash, his Pokémon, and Lugia again, they get attack by the other birds, but do a good job of fighting them off, at least until the birds destroy the "boat." Just as all hope seems lost, Ash is rescued by Team Rocket, of all people, who appear to have used some of the helicopter parts, along with the life raft from before, to make a motorboat. They soon reveal that their motives aren't exactly pure, though; there wouldn't be anyone left to rob if the world were to be destroyed. They get attacked again, but Lugia fights the attackers off. After going through a long tunnel(on a makeshift motorboat, no less.), they arrive at the shrine, where Ash takes the Ice sphere.

 

They try to escape, but get stopped by the birds; Lugia can't save them this time. In fact, their boat is destroyed. Then, Articuno is felled when the other 2 birds gang up on it. Ash and Team Rocket manage to escape, and Ash shows Lugia the Ice sphere.

 

*Power Of One count: 16(background music.).*

 

Lugia allows Ash(and, accidentally, Team Rocket, who grab his tail.) to ride on him back to the island where Ash has to take the spheres. Unfortunately, Lugia gets attacked by the other birds(sans Articuno.), and, with Team Rocket holding onto his tail, he can't dodge as well as he could before. After a totally random Weight Watchers reference("We should try Weight Watchers!" "It's too late for that!" "I heard it's never too late if you really stick to the program!"), Team Rocket lets go, sacrificing themselves for the greater good. However, they survive the fall, plunging underwater and surfacing near a huge group of Pokémon.

 

Lugia explains to Ash that the Pokémon have gathered because they want to help, but that Ash is the only one who can fix what's happening.

 

*Power Of One count: 17(background music.).*

 

Melody and Misty start worrying, but it's not needed, because Ash waves at them. Suddenly, though, Lawrence III's capture rings(that's what I'm calling them.) shoot from the fortress, straight towards Lugia.

 

*Power Of One count: 18(background music; you have to listen carefully.).*

 

The capture rings surround Ash, Pikachu, and Lugia. Lugia won't go down without a fight, though. He fires 2 Hyper Beams, the first of which destroys the fortress. Unfortunately, Lugia has used the last of his energy; he plunges into the icy sea, defeated, taking Ash and Pikachu down with him. Ash and Pikachu surface, but Ash is unconscious. Lugia admits his failure. Even the Pokémon that traveled all that way know things are grim.

 

Melody tries to give her ocarina thing to Misty, but she won't take it. Instead, she sets out to find Ash, which doesn't take her very long at all. Once she finds him, she brings him back to the island where, rather than give him CPR, she shakes him! Somehow, it works, but - and this is coming from someone with quite a bit of medical knowledge - I wouldn't recommend it. Not just because it's stupid, but because, if the victim has a head, neck, or back injury, you're likely to make it worse.

 

Anyway, Ash shambles over and puts the Ice sphere in the last slot. This makes pretty lights come out of all 3 spheres. It also causes shining green water(ew.) to pour out into markings on the ground, and it causes the stone pillars around everyone to crystallize. Melody wastes no time in playing her song. By the way, we have just reached the climax of the movie.

 

*Power Of One count: 21(Melody plays it, then background music takes over, then Melody finishes it.).*

 

Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres, tamed by the song, fly around happily. That finally brings an end to the crazy weather that plagued the world. Grateful, Lugia emerges, his power restored by the song, and offers Ash and Pikachu a ride.

 

With the song finished, Melody drops to her knees. Some islanders look outside, stunned, and a news report tells us what we already know; the bad weather is over.

 

Back with the main characters, Lugia congratulates Ash, saying that the fate of the world couldn't have been in better hands. With that, he returns to the sea, and, unfortunately for Ash, his mother and Professor Oak catch up to them. Delia's first instinct is to bitch Ash out, but, then, she admits that she worries about him all the time. Ash placates her by saying that he'll try to stay close to home(LIAR!!). Oak runs off, excited to tell other researchers about the recent events. Then, we cut to Lawrence III, picking up his Mew card out of the wreckage of his fortress. He hasn't given up his hobby, and he's going to start over with the card that started it all.

 

The final pre-credits scene is of Team Rocket, happy that they did they did the right thing, but sad that nobody saw them do it. Slowking breaks the fourth wall by telling them that lots of people saw it, and that they're still watching. With that knowledge, Team Rocket ends the movie by talking about starting their own team.

 

*Power Of One count: 22(it plays during the credits, complete with vocals.).*

 

And, with that, we've reached the credits! Like they are in a lot of the Pokémon movies, the credits in this one aren't too special, serving mostly as a way to get extra songs in at the last minute. Donna Summer is good, but, by the time you've reached the credits, you're probably sick of the song she contributed, and the addition of vocals probably won't do too much to change that. The fact that they got Weird Al Yankovic to do a song is cool, but it seems out of place, considering the song that precedes it, and the song that comes after it, are both ballads. Not exactly what Weird Al Yankovic is known for. As for the final song, Flying Without Wings, it's amazing, and I wish they had played more of it.

 

And that's it for The Power Of One! A good movie that could've used song variety. In case you lost count, they used the same song 22 times! I'll talk more about it later, but, for now, let's move on to Pikachu's Rescue Adventure, the mini-movie that comes with it.

 

It starts with Ash, Misty, and Tracey deciding to take a break, so they let their Pokémon do the same. Unfortunately, Togepi apparently has ADHD, because it goes running after a swarm of Ledyba while the other Pokémon are asleep. Togepi loses its balance and tumbles down a hill, waking up the other Pokémon in the process. Further down the the hill, Togepi smacks into Meowth, who was just walking around. This sends them both tumbling until they fall down a hole. The other Pokémon reach the hole, and seem to be wondering what to do. Well, Psyduck, bringing up the rear, answers that for them, running into them and sending them all down the hole.

 

While they fall, and for a little while afterwards, the viewers are treated to a song. Coming To The Rescue by O-Town. It's a generic boy band sort of song, but it's still pretty good. A swarm of Ledyba, presumably the same one from before, drops our heroes(using that term loosely.) off at a big tree. An Elekid shows up, and Squirtle dons his Squirtle Squad sunglasses, trying to intimidate it. Pikachu steps in and stops him, though, instead opting to do what I assume is an Electric type equivalent of a secret handshake. Luckily, It works. Suddenly, a whole bunch of Pokémon pop up to greet the newcomers. After a short scene in which we see that Meowth is hanging from a branch overlooking a river, Pikachu explains to Elekid that they're looking for Togepi. It just so happens that Elekid knows where Togepi is, and he's willing to take the main characters there. We see more Pokémon, and, when the journey involves crossing a large vine, we see that, despite acting tough earlier, Squirtle is a pussy. Can't say I'd be too different.

 

Anyway, Elekid takes them to an Exeggcute nest. Lo and behold, there's Togepi! Unfortunately, the Exeggcute won't let Togepi go, because they think it's one of them. Exeggcute live in groups of 6, but this one only has 5; one of them is missing.

 

We see some more Pokémon as the main characters end up in a beautiful meadow. I assume that Elekid led them there. As it turns out, they're just in time for a show! 3 Bellossom pop out of the ground and start dancing. They're soon joined by more and more Pokémon, until it's like a dance crew(or troupe, if you prefer.)! Suddenly, Pikachu hears something, so he runs off to see what it is. He leads the other main characters into a cave, where they find a bunch of Clefairy. Pikachu realizes too late that they're using Metronome(picks a random attack and uses it.), which ends up turning into Explosion, sending the main characters flying into a tree with VERY springy leaves. In fact, it looks like there are actual springs attaching the leaves to the tree!

 

Everyone has fun bouncing around, but, unfortunately, Pikachu and Elekid bounce too high, and land on Meowth, still hanging from the branch. They get flung off of the branch, and land on a Snorlax, who launches them into the river. They surface riding up the waterfall on a Gyarados. Meowth tries to kick Pikachu off of it, which doesn't end well. Pikachu uses Thundershock, causing the Gyarados to buck all 3 of them off. Pikachu and Elekid land back in the tree, but Meowth blasts off in classic Team Rocket style. As soon as Meowth disappears, the weather turns bad. Everyone hides at first, but, when they realize that the Exeggcute nests are in danger, it becomes a mad dash to protect them. The wind is ridiculously strong, but Snorlax seems to be able to take it, so he stands over the others to protect them. After a little while, though, Pikachu realizes that everyone is in serious danger, so he runs up to the top of the tree for one of the most badass scenes in all of Pokémon. Pikachu, later joined by Elekid, Thundershocks the lightning to keep it away from the tree! I shit you not! It actually works, for a little while. Eventually, a bolt of lightning slips past them, starting a fire. Marill and Squirtle quickly use Water Gun to put it out, though.

 

With the fire out, the problem once again becomes protecting the Exeggcute. The same strategy as before(using Snorlax.) works for a while, until he lets go of the chain of Pokémon to try to grab some fruit that's blowing by, sending them flying and forcing Pikachu to grab onto a bump on the branch WITH HIS TEETH!! Coming from someone who has 2 broken teeth, I can't watch that without cringing. Just as Pikachu loses his grip, it's Snorlax to the rescue again! Snorlax pulls the Pokémon, and the Exeggcute nest with Togepi in it, back down to safety. With that done, the weather miraculously goes back to normal, and we see a beautiful Dragonair flying around.

 

There's just one last problem. The missing Exeggcute still hasn't been found. However, a random Chansey comes dancing in to solve that problem; the Exeggcute was in her pouch the whole time! The Exeggcute bounce around happily, now that they're all together. It turns out, though, that they're bouncing around near a Leaf Stone, which causes it to evolve into an Exeggutor, and start dancing.

 

We cut to a cliff near a cave, where the main characters say their goodbyes to their new friends. Then, we see that Meowth is, more or less, alright. He landed in a river, which dumped him into a lake. He says he doesn't wanna go to camp anymore(he does, anyway, but not for 3 more mini-movies.). Finally, we rejoin the trainers, just as they wake up. They wonder where their Pokémon are, but they soon find out that their Pokémon are safe and sound, playing in a lake(likely a different one than Meowth ended up in.). Tracey remarks that they must have been playing the whole time. The Pokémon end the mini-movie by jumping out of the water, which is shown as a still frame that fades into what looks like a drawing of the same scene.

 

And that's Pikachu's Rescue Adventure! In contrast to the movie it's shown alongside, it's much more light-hearted and cute, which are important qualities for those things. Now, I suppose you'd like to know my thoughts on this movie. Well, I'm not one to disappoint! Here we go!

 

Well, like I said at the beginning, I hope you like Donna Summer, or, at least, like hearing the same song over and over. This movie likes to beat that song into your head.It also likes to do the same thing with the prophecy. Not to mention that Pikachu is a total sourpuss; he only smiles twice throughout the entire movie! With that said, though, do I think that this is a good movie? Yes, I do.

 

The Power Of One boasts a fairly deep story, epic fights, and a star-studded soundtrack. In fact, to my knowledge, it was the last Pokémon movie to have a soundtrack that didn't consist completely, or mostly, of songs from the actual movie. That being said, though, 22 times is a bit much to play one song. Maybe, they were trying to brag about the fact that they got Donna Summer for the soundtrack. The first movie had songs by Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, The Spice Girls, Aaron Carter, and a few others, though, so that probably isn't the reason. Oh, well.

 

Like the first movie, this one is hard to find. I got my copy from my cousin for my 20th birthday. If you can find it for a good price, I'd recommend picking it up. It's a bit of a slog at almost 2 hours long, but there's enough to keep the viewer occupied. All in all, a fitting send-off for Generation 1.5. That's right; I said "send-off."

 

Generation 1.5 didn't end with this movie; it ended after Ash competed in the Orange League. This was, however, the final movie before Generation II. Before I leave you, I should mention that this movie is popular with Pokéshippers. Pokéshippers are people who depict Ash and Misty in a relationship in fanart and fanfiction. However much Misty tries to hide it, it's clear she has feelings for Ash. I'm not saying they should be a couple, but there's clearly something there.

 

Well, that's it for my synopsis and review of The Power Of One and Pikachu's Rescue Adventure! Join me next time when I enter familiar, and beloved, territory by reviewing my favorite Pokémon movie; Spell Of The Unown, the first movie from my favorite Generation of Pokémon: Generation II! Will the movie starring Pokémon that look like letters spell victory over the last 2 movies? Find out next time! ArdillaVerde93, signing off! Gotta Catch 'Em All!

      1. the year was 1008. The era of magic and the days where most creatures walked among people without being hated. The king though was a power hungry, war mongering, greedy monster who would hurt and kill anyone who stood in his way or kept him from anything his dark heart desired. One day a child at the age of 17 was discovered but not just any child, a child of incredible power who people claim can perform amazing miracles. Once the king heard of this child he sent guards to retrieve him and when the child's parents stood in their way, they killed his parents and burned the house to the ground but the child escaped. It's been three years since the child went into hiding and the guards found nothing. The king was furious beyond belief so he decided to do the one thing he thought he wouldn't have to. He put out a call to creatures of all kinds and offered each one something they wanted if they brought the child to him alive. Each one wanted something different.

      Shapeshifter: she wants the greatest magicians to give her own human form so she doesn't have to wear another persons face.

      Shanna the hunter: a license to hunt and kill all rare creatures

      Cursed human with uncontrollable strength: curse lifted

      Telekinetic: a way to make her older than she really is

      Telepath: a part of the kingdom with her own subjects

      Troll: for everyone to stop perving and making fun of her

      Neko assassin: money

      Orc: land meant only for her race

      Samurai warrior: labeled to have eternal honor

      amazon: to free her sisters from slavery

      Reaper with a removable head: a spell to keep her head from falling off

      Centaur: land of her own to run in

      Arachne: humans to torture for her amusement

      Lamia: a nice place that is forever warm and away from humans

      Cyclopes: a more mature body

      Cupid the archer: to be head of the kings archery squad

      Demon warrior: a portion of land to title hell

      Dark magician: all the spell books in the world

      Fairy queen: repossession of her land

      Ex niolo: her own land to be a large garden (powers of nature are connected to untainted wildlife)

      Goddess of thunder: her own warriors for ragnarok (after lifting a magic hammer she is convinced that she is thor)

      Angel: land to be called heaven

      They all came before the king to gain information on the bounty. He was last spotted in the northeast, he looks the same he did three years ago, the person who brings him to the king gets their prize while the others leave empty handed. They were let loose to find the child and the hunt began
      2.I was the new ruler of the kingdom of zoraxia and I had just brought peace throughout the world thanks to negotiations and my powerful military. One of my enjoyments was all the fantastical creatures that inhabited the earth. Once the kingdoms that reside on earth heard of my interest they decided to try to stay on my good side by sending me someone that was of their tribe, race, kingdom, or group of slaves. I awaited in my throne room with my wolf companion sighing when they brought in the creatures.

      List of creatures:
      Amazon
      Shapeshifter
      Angel
      Lizard girl
      Orc
      Troll
      Genie with no lamp
      Neko
      A creature with a removable head
      Centaur
      Arachne
      Lamia
      Cyclops
      Intelligent zombie
      Ape girl
      Cupid of the love fairies
      Demon warrior
      Mummy of the egyptians
      Dark magician
      Queen of the fairies with two servants
      Mermaid

      I looked at all of them with wide eyes and a raised eyebrow. I stand and walk around trying to get a good look from all angles as my wolf just sits by my throne watching all of them ready to strike and protect me

      "Hmmm.... So many but I can't take all of them... I guess I'll pick,"
      3. (young justice roleplay. events happen after season 2)

      its been a year since kid flash had died stopping a device from causing havoc on the earth and impulse had taken on the title and the young justice team was still recovering until one day superman and batman called a meeting in the teleport room of mount justice

      superman: "thank you all for coming everyone. i called you here to make an announcement."

      zatanna: "did something happen super man?"

      superman: "we have discovered two meta humans who would be perfect for this team. one is a little young but since they're brothers one won't join without the other"

      super boy: "who are they?"

      two holograms (like the ones below) appear two show me (the white haired one) and my brother

      super man: "their names are john (me) and peyton (brother). one has the ability to transform into a being of shadow and the other a being of immense power but the thing is they dont like transforming into these beings so we would like to bring them here so maybe they can learn to control these abilities."

      superboy: "they dont look so tough."

      batman: "their powers are off the charts so be careful."

      superman: "but dont treat them any different than you treat each other."

      the teleport turns on then off as me and my brother walk out of it. my headphones remained on my head as my brother looks around in awe with a wide open mouth while i glanced around with a raised eyebrow
      4. (this rp has different five different versions which have the same plot but a different characte. the characters will be captain marvel, she-hulk, power girl, female thor, and medusa (of the inhumans). this one will be about captain marvel. i dont care if your male and you play females.  there will be adventure, action, super villains, other heroes (played by me (or you if you want but i will be playing most) ) but there will also be sadness, depression, mental and emotional stress, bullying, abuse, etc. i hope you enjoy this rp or one of the others) (for this rp as captain marvel your personality needs to in some way be: very competitive and self-critical, experience a constant sense of urgency, easily aroused to anger or hostility, to see the worse in others, displaying anger, envy and a lack of compassion. everything else is all you and while this starter has captain marvel as the character, you can choose to be one of the others and i will alter the start so it's that character instead.) 

      i haven't had the greatest life. OK maybe one of the worst any person could have. my mother died when i was seven but before them the happy memories always had her. my father would always arrive home and beat her till she couldn't stand the take her to his room to have his way while i lay in the corner broken and bruised from the attacks he gave me when i tried to protect mom. she died when he punched her a little too hard causing her to land into the wall in a bad way snapping her neck. i sat there in shock as he takes her body and throws it down the stairs then stands over me

      father: "if you tell anyone anything besides she fell down the stairs then i will break your fucking neck you sorry piece of shit."

      so thats what happened and thats what i told the cops. my mom fell down the stairs and landed in a way that it snapped her neck. its my birthday and i had just turned 17. for the past 7 years i would read about the super heroes among us and all their adventures but the one hero i always would look up to was captain marvel. one day on the radio i heard about a contest at a convention as a charity event where if you could answer the question that true super hero fans knew then that fan could pick one super hero to go on dates with for a whole week. a week! i saw this as my chance to actually spend a week with my hero! it was in a month so i saved up as much money i could to be able to enter and for the dates but it wasnt much since my father never gave any money so i took any job i could....a lot of them weren't pleasant. the day came and after a beating from my father i went towards the convention getting attacked by bullies along the way. i arrived at the convention battered and bruise gaining many glances from multiple people. i enter myself into the contest as i give the main person the money with trembling hands. after about an hour of failing contestants i was up and they ask the question. when i answered they stood there shocked and i was afraid i gave an answer that was obviously wrong but when they said i was correct i stood there feeling as if im about to faint

      boss of the event: "congratulations on answering correctly! now which hero would you like to-"

      i scream with so much excitement and at the top of my lungs

      me: "captain marvel!!!! err...i mean....."

      i hang my head looking down at the floor embarrassed at what i just did

      me: "c-captain marvel sir...."

      captain marvel was in the back of the group of heroes messing with a hologram quietly chatting with puck who is up in the space station which is home for the ultimates and alpha flight. when she hears her name her head perks up as the other heroes step aside snickering at her confusion

      captain marvel: "wait me? why not she-hulk or thor or even storm? dont you think you want one of them and i mean im a very busy woman and-"

      the boss leans over close to her and whispers

      boss: "you signed a contract saying you would do it even if you thought you weren't going to be picked. he chose you so go up and talk to your date."

      she sighs as she slowly walks off the stage through the crowd and stands a bit taller than me. right when she focuses on me her eyes widen at all my injuries and steps back a bit

      captain: "oh my god what happened to your- i mean hey umm... cutie? whats your name?

      me: "i-im joseph maam.... i-i guess you're my date?"

      captain: "that's right our dates start tomorrow so where would you like to meet for our first date?"

      me: "w-well th-there is this carnival thats happening in central park so maybe we could start there? my treat."

      captain: "its a date then. ill meet you there at five o'clock sharp. don't be late."

      i smile happily and hurry off to get myself cleaned up for the date tomorrow. despite the beating that night i got in my nicest (and non ripped) clothes, grabbed some flowers, and went to the carnival arriving 10 minutes before 5. i waited.... and waited.... and waited..... and waited.... but she never showed up. i got an unknown call on my phone which was her saying that she was busy with something so she had to miss the date and told me to show up at the carnival tomorrow. i did exactly that but no show and she told me the same thing. every day the same thing happened and i prayed she would show up having hope that she would show. on saturday night i got the same call so i went home. meanwhile she went into the station where captain america was waiting for her

      marvel: "hey cap! whats up?"

      cap had his arms crossed and that strict angry look that a drill Sargent gives before he makes you clean the bathroom with a toothbrush

      marvel: "is something wrong?"

      cap: "you didnt show up for a single one of your dates."

      marvel: "well its not my fault! every day there seemed to be an emergency that needed me"

      aurora: "actually we told you multiple times we didn't need you and to go on your date but you wouldn't listen"

      marvel: "not now aurora"

      cap: "you need to honor your contract so the week is starting over and you are not to answer any emergencies unless it is an end of the world event. that is an order"

      marvel: "fine."

      the next day she showed up at the carnival but i wasn't there. after waiting two whole hours she starts to fly back up to the space station but pauses know that cap will just tell her to find me and then start the week over. after contacting alpha flight she finds me and heads to my house (this is where you start as captain marvel or one of the other heroes)
      5. you are the famed erza of the fairy tail guild. You had just accepted a mission to shut down a slave market but what you didn't expect was to find me in such a horrible condition. I was beaten and bruised past the point of survival and it seems one of the punishments they gave me for disobeying was removing my eyes and replacing them with bandages. I was in an unconscious state when you found me and when I awoke in a hospital room at the guild I sat up and look around blindly and afraid

      Me: "hello? Anybody there?"

      Ezra: "youre safe now. You're no longer at the market"

      Me: "you bought me?"

      Ezra: "I rescued you"

      Me: "thank you mistress"

      you then-
      6. general Jackson: "whats the progress on subject sentry?"

      lieutenant Gordon: "nothing sir. he seems to be inactive. as you can see in the video feed he is just in the corner. he might be still traumatized when we took his one eye to see if we could possibly drain some power for it but that's when we discovered that he has no powers in his normal form. he also refuses to tell us anything about his powerful form."

      in one of the many surveillance computers was me in an empty white room. i had my legs close to my chest under my chin as i have lost my shoes from a transformation. i had bandages from over dozens of shots along with burns, cuts, bruises, and a trembling body from the many experiments they used on me

      general: "hmmm.... we should have someone interact with him. get me our best agent. offer her anything she asks as long as she agrees. maybe we can figure out the limits of his powers, where they came from, and how we can turn it into a weapon."

      a group of soldiers came into my room for a new 'experiment' then start burning and hurting me violently but no matter what they do i didnt scream. i had lost the need to scream

      meanwhile in the surveillance you came in to talk to the general about your new job. you glance at the camera showing the guards leave then back at the general showing no emotion at the sight
       
      7.my name is jollox and im a resident of the inhuman city on the blue area of the moon. The inhumans are a race of advanced humans that when exposed to a alien mist at a certain age gain incredible unique powers. I was about 6 when I was deemed ready to enter the mists. My queen medusa came to watch the ceremony ever since our lord black bolt died saving us. When I saw her enter the room my heart fluttered and I grew excited because of the honor she made me feel from her presence. I ran up to the entrance to the mists excitedly and against ceremony then ran into the room. It was nothing like I imagined and I start to scream in pain at the process. When I awoke I found myself at the age of 17 and they explained their readings showed that I can control matter, summon incredible strength, control gravity, and fire energy blasts. I changed back to 6 and they said that I turn 17 whenever I want. My queen was intrigued so she decided to take me in as her own. Its been three weeks and i was smiling as i hide from medusa. 
      8.war. It all started with a never ending war between the heroes of overwatch and the terrorists of talon. I would watch in awe as the great hero tracer would speed by or in wonder when mei would slide on her ice above. That was... Until that fateful day...

      Mom: "honey. Come sit at the with us so we can eat."

      I stare out the window of our apartment building looking confused then walk over to the table sitting down with a sad look in my face

      Mom: "what's wrong dear?"

      Me: "usually tracer speeds by our house by now...."

      Dad: "I dont get why you like those agents. They are supposed to be outlawed, shut down, and removed of their gear."

      Me: "they only came back to fight those talon agents who attack so many people just for the heck of it."

      Brother: "he likes watching her speed by because he likes seeing her backside"

      my brother giggles as I glare at him. All of a sudden the ground shakes as a boom goes off in the distance. Mei comes crashing through our wall as the booms get louder. I quickly run over to her as my family scrambled to get out of the building while I push mei to safety. The building starts to collapse and I get under the marble table praying for it all to be ok when the building comes crashing down. I awake a few hours later crawling out of the rubble coughing and gasping to see a couple banged up overwatch agents, toppled buildings, and dozens of ambulances being filled with injured and dead. The cyborg ninja, genji, sees me and pulls me out of the rubble with a bit of strain then sits me on the end of an ambulance. I look around nervously

      Me: "mom? Dad? P-peyton? Where are they?"

      Genji: "where were they when the building fell?"

      Me: "i-i think they were on my floor. The fifth floor... Is mei ok?"

      Genji: "agent mei is fine thanks to you but other than her.... I believe you are the only one who survived in that building... Im sorry."

      I sit there with wide eyes filled with shock and tears then start to cry as genji hugs me as gently as he can. After an hour of searching for known relatives and finding none he and the other agents decide to take me in as a sign of gratitude
      9. it was the middle of the night. I was asleep in my bed having a strange dream about monsters and creatures that lived among humanity but the sad thing was that I believed I was the only one of my kind. You see im a shapeshifter.... Well partially. I can change into a kitten, teen, or child but I love to stay in the form of a child because it makes me feel myself except my father doesnt approve of me using my abilities and hurts me whenever I do seeing me as a freak. The next day is where my story begins

      (This separates into multiple different rp stories that are all sexual but arent straight to sex. For some foot fetish must be ok and please dont plus one if you like it. I hate when people plus one and dont comment. If you wish to do more than one story then I will gladly share them to you and we can do all them at once. Just list the numbers of the ones you want and ill pp you them. You come up with the names for the monsters. I also can include other monsters. Ignore the info on the pics with info on them)

      1. Snake woman: I was walking through the woods when I saw something scaly glint in the light. I walk over to investigate when I feel something rub against my leg and a red blurr wraps around me and pulls me to the ground. I groan with blood running from my forehead and look up to see a girl thats human to her midsection but a red snake tail below staring at me (you are the snake woman and youve lived in fear of being found and hurt by humans. You grew curious as you saw me one day and noticed I was different. You can make it she doesnt know english or she does)


      2. Mouse girl: I woke in the middle of the night hearing a loud mix of a squeak and a scream. I get out of bed quickly and run over to the sound which happens to be a small girl but with a rat tail and ears caught in a mousetrap at the waist. I stare at her in awe then gently reset the trap and pick her up in my hands

      3. mummy: I woke up the next day to find my father had bought an actual sarcophagus and decided to put it in my room laying it right next to my bed. That night the sarcophagus started banging around and out rose a mummy. I stare at her in fear as she stares at me then sits on my bed look around curious about the entire room

      4. Giant: It was the next day when the ground shook. I ran outside and saw trees being pushed aside as a giant holding an enormous mace towers above me when my dad comes marching out and screaming how he cant believe there are more freaks like me

      5. Monster whose head falls off with ease: I awake with a start when I hear a person swear in my room and see something rolling in my room. I walk over to the roundish object then pick it up to discover it was a head!!!! I scream dropping the head in panic (you were planning to assassinate a human as a sign of revolte but then.... Your head fell off)

      6. Elf: I went adventuring into the forest to see if maybe my dream was a sign of something when all of a sudden I walk into a deep part of the woods growing scared and sad then an arrow comes flying past me into the tree and I transform into a kitten out of intense fear

      7. Red orc: when I awoke from my dream I found myself in a cave trapped in a skin sack and I see a red orc devouring what appeared to be my father. She looks directly at me and smiles

      8.mermaid: I arrive at the market the next day to maybe find a slave who is like me when I see people gathering around a certain area. I run over and witness an actual mermaid on sale. After some bidding I finally buy her and then I walk over to the glass nervously

      9. Cyclops: I awoke from my dream to hear the sounds of screams nearby and the scent of smile filled the air. I run out of the estate and into the woods to see what the noise was to find bandits attacking a village of cyclops and there was one with a war hammer and flaming blade staring angrily at a large group of bandits but they easily slap her weapons aside and start ripping at her clothes. I run over and step in front of her saying this was my property and they are to leave which they do with all the cyclops except the one behind me

      10. Cupid: the goddess of love was a mischievous one. She kept pulling pranks on the gods making them fall in love with random things until they had enough. I was asleep in my room when they sent her down to earth and claimed me as her master

      11. Fairy queen: I awoke to find a fairy queen standing at the foot of my bed with two smaller fairies and speaking in a different language using a begging tone trying to hide from hunters

      12. Troll: my father had returned one day with a troll being dragged behind him as he laughed. He said he finally found a freak like me and she was mine to do as I pleased then he kicks her to me

      13. Vampire: as I slept I felt something biting my neck and when I woke I found a vampire moaning softly as her fangs were in my neck sucking on my neck. I turn into a kitten and hurry under the bed

      14.Pharaoh: I awake the next morning to see a beautiful egyptian woman standing at the foot of my bed. My father was there playing with her hair saying she was my new servant

      15. Unicorn (half woman half horse but with a horn on her head): I hear the sound of hooves on my floor and awake to find a unicorn in my room who kneels and says I was to be whatever I wanted to be to her

      16. Demon: I started to have a nightmare and wake to see a woman floating beside my bed holding a book. I was afraid at first and because of that she was confused

      17. Amazoness: I went into the woods and climbed up a tree to see a beautiful amazoness and stare in awe until I see her sword inches from my cheek
      10. it's been 10 years since a warlord named proxima midnight took over the earth. I was one of the last super humans on earth that survived the super massacre. I was a young boy with the ability to shapeshift into different versions of myself with different personalities but I stayed as a young boy most of the time.I spent most of my life locked in a cage when her highness proxima came to visit and took me as her servant/slave for entertainment and combat training.
      11. I am a demigod, A mortal who is the child of a god or goddess. I am the child of a powerful and ancient god in a world that is watched over by only goddesses so that give me any hint over who my father was. The goddesses were always intrigued by the human race so they watched us many times but never could understand much about us. One day the queen of the goddesses (goddess of reality) chose to have each of the goddesses interact with a mortal so they can learn more about the modern world and the mortals so I was chosen. I have the ability to change form and summon many different powers for many different situations but also my forms develope their own personalities. They all agreed with the queen seeing this as a way to mess and have fun with the mortals in their own ways. I was on my way home from the store when I look down an alley to see the first goddess (or goddesses) I will meet

      List of goddesses:

      Goddess of beauty
      Goddess of speed and messengers
      Goddess of monsters
      Goddess of war
      Goddess of power
      Goddess of honor
      Goddess of heroes
      Goddess of giants
      Goddess of love
      Goddess of nature
      Goddess of magic
      Goddess of light
      Goddess of wildlife
      Goddess of the hunt
      Goddess of thieves
      Goddess of strength
      Goddess of reality
      Goddess of death
      Goddess of mischief
      Goddess of the weather
      Goddess of minds
      12. it was a cold, dark, and dreary night at the home of a rich company owner who's company stole money from the people who barely had money and uses it to gain stocks so they can gain more money. I was a young kid who had no idea what his father did and spent most of his time trying to make friends but was ignored or hated. One night while everyone was asleep elektra the dangerous assassin silently broke into the house we lived in and went to kill my father. Right after the job was done I had walked out of the kitchen from getting a glass of milk when I see you and freeze h-hello....
       
      13.it all started when the world was invaded by extraterrestrial warriors. they killed all our soldiers and wiped out our armies to the point we had no way of fighting back. most of humanity was left to live about their lives under the eyes of their new rulers, the (insert name here), but there was a catch. every couple months some humans would be chosen to be taken the mother ship and be presented to the queen as slaves then one will be chosen to be hers. i was torn from my family at the age of twelve and trained to be the perfect slave but in the process i gained a childlike personality that pops up every once in a while. once i turned 17 i finally was out of the training/torture room, put with the other slaves, and on my way to meet my possible new queen/mistress  (choose whatever type of alien you wish to be) 
      14. all people think that beach city is the best place ever where everyone is happy. It isnt. My father is an alcoholic who beats me any chance he has while smiling and being nice to everyone else. When people ask about my injuries he just explains them by blaming them on clumsiness and bullies and self harm. The people found me trouble so they would avoid and ignore me. I felt truly alone for many weeks till I saw the crystal gems and that half gem boy who was with them. He seemed so happy with them despite that fact he was always in danger. Everyday I would escape my father and run to their temple to see him and the gems but they would either be on a mission, out, or one of the gems would tell me to leave as they were uneasy about my scars. one day i ran away from home and hid in an alley way until one day a gem found me.

      15. "Let me go! Please someone let me out!!!"

      I scream banging against the electrified energy shield that keeps me from escaping the cell I am in. A jasper walks over to the energy shield and growls softly but then quickly changes to calm almost as if she were afraid then uses her arms and hands to make the shape of a diamond

      Jasper: "Im sorry, my diamond. I have orders by another to keep you in this cell. Is there anything I could get for you?"

      Me: "oh I don't know. Maybe a soda, some chips... Oh I know. Let me out of here and send me back home!"

      the jasper just stares at me as she presses a button then a soda and chips appear in front of me

      "Anything else my diamond?"

      Me: "why do you call me that?"

      Jasper: "we had our scans set for searching for a lost diamond and we found you. We grabbed you while you were on the way to something called a job interview whatever that is then saw what was on your chest my diamond."

      Me: "wait what's on my chest?"

      I lift my shirt up to see a white diamond and scream in fear at the sight scrambling around grabbing the diamond trying to pull it out of my chest but it seemed fused to my skin

      Me: "where did this come from?!"

      the jasper stumbles back a bit startled

      Jasper: "W-we believe that when you made physical contact on our ship it removed some cloaking that hides the diamond from view."

      I stare at it in shock when I hear a voice in the cell next to me

      ???: "what?! You're telling that kid is a diamond?!"

      jasper's attitude changes suddenly as she walks out of view and punches the wall

      Jasper: "shut up ruby! You're lucky we don't shatter you and sapphire! Bad enough that you two stay fused when together but also fighting with the crystal gems is enough for shattering."

      she walks back in front of me putting her arms behind her back

      Jasper: "Anything else my diamond?"

      Me:"n-no.. Thank you"

      the jasper had a look of confusion at the thank you then walks away. Once she is out of earshot I walk up to the energy shield and call out to the ruby who was in the cell in my right and the sapphire who was on my left

      Me: "h-hello?"
       
      16. my family wasn't the most normal family... In fact it's the exact opposite. It all happened one day when a bunch villainess came together to defeat their enemies. But what they didn't expect was they'd find a child on their doorstep after three years since they first came together and they decided to raise it. Yep that was me.... I was the child. They all interacted with me in some way but later on they enrolled me in school and discovered how I can change between teen and child but luckily it was before I started going to school. My family consisted of livewire, blackfire, giganta, silver banshee, bumblebee, terra, cheetah, star sapphire, talia al ghul, poison ivy, domino, madelyne pryor, enchantress, shanna the she-devil, black cat, catwoman, lady deadpool, gwenpool, mystique, and Emma frost, a female alien, and harley quinn Every once and awhile they would go away for some time to I dont know where. Back in the present I was sitting on the branch of a tree giggling as I hide from poison ivy
      17.in a world where angels and demons existed was a world of hide or be sold. Angels and demons used to battle each other over humanity until one day a demon influenced humanity into hunting both races. Just about all angels and demons have been captured and sold as slaves until one day a one of a kind angel was found, me, a multi-winged angel. People from all over came to see me in a cage but I wrapped my wings around me with my eyes filled with tears of sadness and rage then I was shocked by a cattle prod so I would spread my wings out so I did it and hang my head. You were in town today hearing about the new angel and go to the market to see me

      (choose which you would like to be)

      1. Scientist: you are a famous scientist who didnt believe angels and demons were all they claim to be so you've been studying them never having the money to actually buy one until I was discovered because you had made enough money through your research even though you found no proof of angels and demons being different from what we claim to be.

      2. Demon: you are the demon who influenced the humans except you are disguised unless you are in your house.

      3. Spoiled mistress: you are a rich woman who wants the best of everything so you hurried into the market to buy me

      4.collector: you are a collector of magical creatures who collects them for entertainment.

      5. Other: if you have any suggestions just say. )

      This is an incredibly simple game, in theory.
      I will provide the English title of an anime, but I will remove one or more words.
      The goal of the game is to come up with something absurd to fill in any blanks I leave.

      Example:
      Kiki's Delivery Service might become Kiki's [BLANK] Service.
      You would then have to fill in that blank, with no regard to what should be there.
      Like, for instance: Kiki's Escort service.

      So for our first one, I'll take:
      Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?

      And make it:
      Is It Wrong to Try to [BLANK] in a [BLANK]?

      For a longer period of time now, I have been wanting to do an pokemon RP. While I am fine with making it into a digimon RP if my partner prefers that, I have been looking for that feeling of exploration and story. The dynamic between a trainer/tamer and the pokemon, a deeper bond and similar settings is very appealing to me. The RP would not feature excessive amounts of sex and the times it is done would be in a respectful way. When it comes to the pokemon/digimon that either one of the two people play, i have little preference besides a general desire to have it be humanoid. As per the story or even region, I am all up for working that out with you!
      If you like the idea, sent me an ecchitext. I love to talk it over and I'm sure we will get along. I don't mind either of the two roles (or more) so by all means, I would love to hear what you have for input.

      I mentioned in a status update that I've been a fan of Pokémon since I was 4. As such, I have been a fan for 20 years of its currently 21-year existance in the US. People say it's just a cartoon for little kids. You know what else is? My Little Pony. And look where that franchise is today. Tom And Jerry, Scooby Doo, and SpongeBob SquarePants are "just" cartoons. That doesn't mean they aren't popular. Pokémon has had a massive impact on my life. It taught me to read. My war veteran grandfather and I played together, and even traded Pokémon! I cried at Bye Bye Butterfree, and I still do. I cried for a half hour straight after Pokémon Ranger And The Temple Of The Sea. When my cousin moved back from Michigan, the first thing we talked about was Pokémon. When my dad caught me smuggling something, it wasn't drugs. It was a copy of Pokémon Silver from his house. So, obviously, I wasn't about to miss the 20th anniversary movie.
      Only 2 theatres in my hometown of Sarasota, Florida, were showing it. Hollywood 20 and AMC. I chose the AMC, as a ticket was cheaper there. 2 of my 3 younger brothers accompanied me. One 17, the other 7. There was not at all any question that we would enjoy it. The 17-year-old ordered a large slushie, and the 7-year-old had a kid's meal. I ordered a cheeseburger slider combo meal. That, unfortunately, was a bad decision. It had to be cooked, and I missed the first 2 minutes. The 17-year-old assured me that all I missed was essentially Nidorino vs. Gengar, a la the Red and Blue intro. What I did see was nothing short of phenomenal, and those 2 minutes are no longer too big of a deal. About 10 minutes in, the opening credits start, accompanied by a heart-pounding rendition of the original Pokémon theme, which I lip-synced as fervently as if I was singing it at a rock concert.
      I had assumed that the movie would be a retelling of the Indigo League arc of the Pokémon anime. It was, but only partially. You all know the story by now. A 10-year-old begins a journey through the Kanto region with a Pikachu. But SO much more happens! Brock and Misty are nowhere to be seen until the end credits. But Ash has 2 friends from Sinnoh who follow him. One of them happens to be the daughter of Cynthia, the Sinnoh League champion. All 3 have aspirations. Ash, of course, wants to be a Pokémon master. The girl wants her mother's acceptance. And the boy wants to become a Pokémon professor. The girl has a Piplup, and the boy has a Lucario.
      So, the 3 go on a journey, as would be expected. But Ash is in possession of a Rainbow Wing. Basically, a feather from Ho-Oh. In the first episode, Ash saw Ho-Oh. The movie is basically about him chasing Ho-Oh, as well as friends and experience. He meets an abandoned Charmander, soon seen to belong to an absolute dick who kicks it when it tries to hug him. This is based on an episode, and becomes a big plot point. Ash wants to show him there are no worthless Pokémon. Along the way, Ash is followed by Marshadow, who eventually becomes the main antagonist. Ash breaks free from Marshadow's corruption, leaving Marshadow to look elsewhere for a host. Unfortunately, in the climax, Marshadow gets ahold of the Rainbow Wing, and gains massive power from it. I won't spoil the climax beyond that. It has to be seen to be believed. I spent the last half of the movie not just crying, but sobbing. Pretty much from their re-creation of Bye Bye Butterfree to the end. My 7-year-old brother repeatedly told me "it's okay."
      Do I recommend this movie? Fuck. Yes. Do you love Pokémon? You'll be on the edge of your seat throughout the thrilling, theatre-shaking battles. Do you hate Pokémon? Then watch it, to see what you're missing. It's not just a cartoon. It's a heart-wrenching masterpiece that it should be criminal to miss.
