KoopaTV Live Reacts to Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - We chose it for our Pokémon Day activity.

For whatever reason, The Pokémon Company International declared today to be Pokémon Day. We thought there would be some big announcement coinciding with this or at least something interesting to talk about, but no, it's pretty underwhelming.

Since we have some kind of obligation to do something with Pokémon Day per trying to get attention on social media, we uncovered the most notable part of today is that they are showing Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! for free at pokemon.com for a LIMITED TIME ONLY. Since limited time only might end tomorrow, we decided as a staff to watch it, and because of deadlines, we'd publish our experience as a reaction log instead of writing out a review.

You might remember this as the Marshadow movie we foreshadowed in our Sinnoh article from last year.

Joining you on the reaction log experience are myself and RawkHawk2010, along with Kamek who is...going at his own pace.

[9:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hi folks.
[9:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Today we're going to be live-reacting to Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!.
[9:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And by "live reacting" I mean "play it on-demand at the same time as someone else"
[9:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: say start
[9:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: start
[9:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: wait
[9:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: no
[9:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ugh
[9:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: We're already at a bad log beginning.
[9:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: Where's @Kamek
[9:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: Eh he'll have to catch up.
[9:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: Say start.
[9:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Sounds hard to do for a MOVIE)
[9:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Start
[9:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "PIKA!"
[9:17 PM] RawkHawk2010: Immediately thought that was Ho-Oh.
[9:17 PM] RawkHawk2010: Really was Pidgeotte.
[9:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pidgeotto or Pidgeot?
[9:17 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is this that battle from the beginning of the anime?
[9:17 PM] RawkHawk2010: Pidgeot.
[9:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No, Blastoise was never there.
[9:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The beginning of the games/anime are Gengar vs. Nidorino, if I recall.
[9:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Why does Blastoise counter Venusaur with Hydro Pump when it just used Ice Beam on Gengar?
[9:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Run out of PP?
[9:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash is "almost" ten.
[9:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So he's nine.
[9:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Dude needs a MyPillow.
[9:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Obviously can't sleep.
[9:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wasn't Pokemon learning something with making all the trainers teens?
[9:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash can't go down stairs.
[9:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: Kids like "legal" girls more anyway.
[9:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or up stairs, for that matter.
[9:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash wants Squirtle.
[9:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Chosen by Gary  Oak)
[9:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Bulbasaur chosen by some girl.
[9:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash's final choice is Charmander.
[9:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Chosen by some kid.
[9:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oak name-drops TRAINS.
[9:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: You should be happy that that was his last choice.
[9:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oak said being late for a train could be a life-changing decision.
[9:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (In the case of AMTRAK, it could save you your life.)
[9:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: Ash needs ladders.
[9:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: Or springboards.
[9:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or not being retarded.
[9:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ten year olds know how to go up and down stairs, right?
[9:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: That hat looks ridiculous.

Pokémon the Movie I Choose You Ash's new hat
Ash's hat has a C for...

[9:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's different just to be different, lmao.
[9:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: Did the Pokemon Company change the music when dubbing this like they do the anime?
[9:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: I think they did.
[9:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash threw Poké Ball at Pidgey.
[9:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And fails.
[9:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: What ever happened to the GS Ball?
[9:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They gave it to Kurt.
[9:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: Spearow.
[9:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And never came back for it.
[9:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Spearow going after Pikachu after Ash throws a rock at it.
[9:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: spearow is trouble with a capital t
[9:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And then summons a ton of Spearow from a tree.
[9:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash falls down a cliff.
[9:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Just for the sake of it.
[9:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: There's that Gyarados.
[9:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Spearow still going after him.
[9:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash told the Spearow to attack him instead of the Pikachu.
[9:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And so they do attack him.
[9:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And he's not taking it well.
[9:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This lightning in the background reminds me of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
[9:27 PM] RawkHawk2010: "HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT!"
[9:27 PM] RawkHawk2010: "FIRED AWAY!"
[9:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pikachu just blew up the Spearow mob.
[9:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And Ash fainted for the whole night or something.
[9:28 PM] Kamek: Why did you guys start?!
[9:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Because we got deadlines to hit.
[9:28 PM] RawkHawk2010: We're at -1:25:18
[9:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You're missing Ho-Oh!
[9:28 PM] RawkHawk2010: Whenever that is.
[9:28 PM] RawkHawk2010: Ho-Oh
[9:28 PM] RawkHawk2010: Herman Cain signed my Ho-Oh.
[9:29 PM] RawkHawk2010: #NoHomo
[9:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash got a Rainbow Wing.
[9:29 PM] Kamek: I just got to my vehicle. I'm not even home yet >>
[9:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash abandoned his hat.

Pokémon the Movie I Choose You Pikachu Ash snuggling cuddling in bed
#MeChu

[9:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now it's a musical interlude.
[9:30 PM] RawkHawk2010: That "across the land" reminded me of Breath of the Wild.
[9:30 PM] RawkHawk2010: The words aren't syncing up with what's on screen at all, lolololol.
[9:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: You can tell the animation wasn't made for this.
[9:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf he just caught Caterpie in the interlude
[9:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THAT'S PLOT IMPORTANCE.
[9:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: Was that Brock?
[9:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No.
[9:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: I know he's not "in this" but I thought I saw him in the background.
[9:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cherry blossoms.
[9:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hexagon city.
[9:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Featuring Erika and Tangela and Celadon Gym.
[9:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And more cherry blossoms.
[9:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Unlike the anime, Ash actually beats Erika in the movie.
[9:32 PM] RawkHawk2010: This hat is distracting.
[9:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: As opposed to saving the gym from a fire.
[9:33 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's uncanny valley.
[9:33 PM] RawkHawk2010: omg
[9:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash doesn't call his mom.
[9:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: LUCARIO
[9:34 PM] RawkHawk2010: When Ash was skyping in the anime, as a kid I was always like, "this technology will never exist"
[9:34 PM] RawkHawk2010: Twenty years later video chat is old news.
[9:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Team Rocket Wanted Posters.

Pokémon the Movie I Choose You Team Rocket Wanted posters Jessie James Meowth
My heroes!
Well, I'm not sure what Meowth is doing.

[9:34 PM] RawkHawk2010: THAT JAMES VOICE
[9:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash hangs up on his mom.
[9:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: Ash just said "Hentei"
[9:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: instead of Entei
[9:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: To talk to some kid whose Vaporeon got pwned by Entei.
[9:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: The hell is Entei doing in Kanto.
[9:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: Did he go there in G/S/C?
[9:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh...
[9:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ....Not sure.
[9:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: I don't think so.
[9:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Couldn't be that hard to cross the border.
[9:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: PIPLUP
[9:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WITH DAWN'S PIPLUP'S VOICE
[9:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BUT THIS GIRL ISN'T DAWN.
[9:36 PM] RawkHawk2010: :dawn_scream:
[9:36 PM] RawkHawk2010: :dawn_get_it_away:
[9:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not-Dawn's Piplup also knows Bubble Beam.
[9:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash can't dodge.
[9:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: Ash's ass got set aflame.
[9:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Got a screenshot.

Pokémon the Movie I Choose You Ash Ketchum butt ass on fire
Ash's ass is on fire.

[9:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Her name is Verity from Twinleaf Town.
[9:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: I forgot that this is a Sinnoh-centric cast.
[9:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: His name is Sorrow from Veilstone City.
[9:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...His name is Sorrow?
[9:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: Veilstone is Sinnoh right?
[9:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yes.
[9:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So the guy with the emo name has Lucario?
[9:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash's Pikachu has Iron Tail, Quick Attack, and Thunderbolt.
[9:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Verity's Piplup has Bubble Beam, Hydro Pump, and Drill Peck.
[9:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: I forgot what Onix's voice was.
[9:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah, that's Brock's Onix's voice.
[9:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But the wild Diglett's voice isn't Diglett's.
[9:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This is Zelda music.
[9:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...or it was/
[9:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "THAT ROCK! LET'S GET ON TOP OF IT!" - Ash
[9:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well now they're riding Onix.
[9:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Trinity's Piplup's fourth move is Whirlpool.
[9:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: I just looked it up and TPCi replaced literally every track in the original I Choose You! with this shitty dub music.
[9:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oy vey.
[9:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: At least they don't do this with the games!
[9:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Charmander in the rain.
[9:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: We haven't seen Ash's Caterpie ever again by the way.
[9:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol
[9:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: LYCANROC
[9:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: Maybe he released it before it even evolved into Metapod.
[9:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: wtf
[9:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Charmander's trainer has the Lycanroc and the trainer kicked Charmander.

Pokémon the Movie I Choose You Cross Lycanroc kicked Charmander raining
Charmander deserves it.

[9:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: I forgot what the original Charmander trainer looked like.
[9:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "There are Charmander like that all over the place."
[9:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is that him?
[9:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "You get to become FRIENDS!" - Ash
[9:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Everyone: "HUH?!"
[9:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Dude's name is Cross.
[9:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Original's is named Damian.
[9:43 PM] RawkHawk2010: I wonder if he spells it "X".
[9:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And didn't look like that.
[9:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: lol
[9:43 PM] RawkHawk2010: Like an X-Naut.
[9:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I still pronounce it Ex-Naut.
[9:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's Sorrow and Lucario in a cave.
[9:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Can you help?" Ash asks of Sorrow about Charmander.
[9:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "That's what I'm trying to do." - Sorrow
[9:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sorrow wants to be a Pokémon Professor.
[9:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But he isn't named after a tree.
[9:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So good luck with that.
[9:46 PM] RawkHawk2010: Maybe he'll change his name to Willow.
[9:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash sneezed on Charmander.
[9:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pikachu is causing a rebellion among the other trainers' Pokémon.
[9:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So now none of them are staying in their Poké Ball either.
[9:47 PM] RawkHawk2010: Entei reminds me of a Lynel.
[9:47 PM] RawkHawk2010: With how I wouldn't wanna go anywhere near it.
[9:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Calamity Ganon myth story.
[9:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Or Ho-Oh myth story)
[9:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Three nameless Pokémon are the four Divine Beasts?
[9:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is that Pokedex a fucking iPad?
[9:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AHH
[9:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: MARSHADOW
[9:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Just hiding out in Entei's shadow.
[9:49 PM] RawkHawk2010: Marshadow?
[9:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That creepy thing with the glowing eyes.
[9:49 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is that the prevo of Gourgheist?
[9:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No.
[9:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's a Mythical Pokémon.
[9:50 PM] RawkHawk2010: I've never heard of it ever.
[9:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm pretty sure I've mentioned it.
[9:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Marshadow is a Ghost/Fighting.
[9:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And gets a signature Z-Move.
[9:50 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yeah I've NEVER heard of it, nor seen it.
[9:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: <_<
[9:50 PM] RawkHawk2010: Weird.
[9:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash just caught Charmander.
[9:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This feels more hollow compared to the anime.
[9:51 PM] RawkHawk2010: Charmander was the least interesting thing about this entire Charmander arc.
[9:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Where they dedicated a whole episode to Charmander.
[9:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But they just dedicated this whole thing to Entei and Ho-Oh.
[9:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And the audience kinda forgot about Charmander.
[9:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "The legend says the Rainbow Wing will guide you."
[9:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash wants a Pokémon Battle with Ho-Oh.
[9:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And the Rainbow Wing immediately stops glowing.
[9:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: As if to say, "No Ash, that's a dumb idea."
[9:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Swimsuit scene.
[9:52 PM] RawkHawk2010: James sounds like Star Fox 64 Andrew Oikonny.
[9:52 PM] RawkHawk2010: Or Star Fox 64 somebody.
[9:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh.
[9:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash still has Caterpie.
[9:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...And it's still a Caterpie.
[9:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: My Mega Pinsir owned back in the day.
[9:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Caterpie evolved into Metapod!
[9:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Pinsir is getting away!" "That's okay, this is what counts!"
[9:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: Had that ability that would turn Return into a flying-type move.
[9:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: A few minutes ago, Ash was just talking about how he wants to be a Pokémon Master.
[9:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Trinity's mom or something has an Empoleon.
[9:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And now she sees Suicune just hanging out.
[9:54 PM] RawkHawk2010: I thought her name was Varity.
[9:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...
[9:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh.
[9:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah.
[9:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought it was Verity, named after the lake.
[9:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: In Sinnoh.
[9:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Our eyes met, and it was like time stopped."
[9:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: TIME
[9:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: It probably is that.
[9:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: I forgot about Lake Verity.
[9:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: EW
[9:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: YOO JIGGLYPUFF
[9:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: IT'S THAT PoR FAT BITCH
[9:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: NOO
[9:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: MY POOR JIGGLYPUFF

Pokémon the Movie I Choose You Jigglypuff fainted battle swirly eyes
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON'T GIVE JIGGLYPUFF A BUFF.

[9:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: oh shit Charmander evolved
[9:56 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh yeah, "Meg"
[9:56 PM] RawkHawk2010: That was Meg.
[9:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That's Radiant Dawn.
[9:56 PM] RawkHawk2010: Ah
[9:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Brom's daughter.
[9:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This movie has bad pacing.
[9:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: IT'S THAT RD FAT BITCH*
[9:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yeah
[9:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: HEART OF EVIL STOLE STRENGTH FROM HO-OH
[9:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: CALAMITY GANON
[9:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's like the Dragon Ball Path to Power movie where it's ten years of story condensed into an hour.
[9:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cross is hanging out in the library spying on Ash.
[9:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Meanwhile, cuts to Ash's Pikachu getting squished by Snorlax.
[9:58 PM] RawkHawk2010: What happened to Gary?
[9:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But Snorlax faints for some reason.
[9:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: IT'S CROSS.
[9:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And Lycanroc.
[9:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: CROSS'S HAIR
[9:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: IS AN X
[9:58 PM] RawkHawk2010: I just noticed Cross has sross-shaped bangs.
[9:58 PM] RawkHawk2010: cross*
[9:58 PM] RawkHawk2010: Was it like that when he first appeared? >.>
[9:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Charmander evolved to Charmeleon just to battle this guy.
[9:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Dunno.
[9:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: CROSS HAS AN INCINEROAR
[9:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: By the way, another difference from the anime: Charmeleon is obedient.
[9:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: Incineroar is underrepresented.
[9:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Come at me"
[9:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: Now that I like him.
[9:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh...not in the anime.
[10:00 PM] RawkHawk2010: I thought grass owl was all anyone cared about
[10:00 PM] RawkHawk2010: ala Greninja
[10:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Incineroar activated Blaze.
[10:00 PM] RawkHawk2010: Incineroar gets Zenkai Boosts

Pokémon the Movie I Choose You Incinearoar Throat Chop Charmeleon mid-air
GO GET ‘EM, INCINEROAR!

[10:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: CROSS CHop
[10:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Charmeleon is acting like a chain smoker.
[10:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: ^
[10:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: Was about to say that.
[10:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cross just called Ash the worst trainer he's ever seen.
[10:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: Nurse Joy didn't say "We hope to see you again."
[10:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He's probably right.
[10:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is Sorrow voiced by James Marsters?
[10:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash is moping about getting destroyed.
[10:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Pikachu would've won that thing."
[10:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash said, and Verity is like, "Ash, you shouldn't say that! What if Charmeleon heard you?!"
[10:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash ran away from his friends.
[10:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pikachu thinks it's Ash's fault he lost.
[10:03 PM] RawkHawk2010: Pikachu Release arc?
[10:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "If only my first Pokémon had been a Squirtle or Bulbasaur."
[10:04 PM] RawkHawk2010: Marshadow is corrupting him.
[10:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pikachu ran away from Ash being a jerk.
[10:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now all he has is Metapod.
[10:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: loooool
[10:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Ho-Oh... I thought I was the rainbow hero!"
[10:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Who needs Pikachu anyway... I'M JUST FINE...ALL BY MYSELF."
[10:05 PM] RawkHawk2010: the hell is the rainbow hero
[10:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, guess he doesn't have Metapod either.
[10:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash's Rainbow Wing turned black.
[10:05 PM] RawkHawk2010: Maybe it has to do with Team Rainbow Rocket.
[10:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And Marshadow is Calamity Ganon-ing him.
[10:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash is having a flashback to his first day.
[10:05 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol at that car poster.
[10:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He still fell off the ladder.
[10:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This time he brought his clothes.
[10:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: It was a car poster that had a SUV on it.
[10:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This time, Ash is going to school.
[10:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The subject of the class is rainbows.
[10:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash is confusing Ho-Oh for an airplane/Mega Latios.
[10:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: This whole bit happened in Xenoblade 2.
[10:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: Except scarier.
[10:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: Is this actually a flashback?
[10:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: I thought it was an alt-reality nightmare.
[10:08 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wher he had to stay in school forever.
[10:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Yeah that's probably it.
[10:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Featuring a Pikachu ghost.
[10:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash is running away from school.
[10:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I can't remember who you are!"
[10:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AHH
[10:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: Cubes.
[10:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: Like in that one Sinnoh movie.
[10:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: And the city of cubes.
[10:09 PM] RawkHawk2010: If I'm remembering it correctly.
[10:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash died in the alt-reality nightmare.
[10:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pikachu came back, and the Rainbow Wing turned rainbow.
[10:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And Verity and Sorrow came back.
[10:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Do you know how long we've been looking for you?"
[10:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (He didn't.)
[10:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: :cnnheadline:
[10:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Charmeleon, I'm sorry."
[10:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (What about Metapod?)
[10:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Apparently in the alt-reality nightmare, Pokémon didn't exist.
[10:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sorrow grew up with a family Luxray.
[10:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But Luxray froze to death or something.
[10:11 PM] RawkHawk2010: A G-rated death but not really.
[10:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: Freezing to death is way worse than getting shot.
[10:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: So is going to the Shadow Realm.
[10:12 PM] RawkHawk2010: Primeapes.
[10:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf is happening
[10:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Ash, we need Metapod!" "But WHY?!"
[10:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: Reminder that Passimian is just a worse Primeape in every way.
[10:13 PM] RawkHawk2010: All it can do that Primeape can't is learn Special Attack ball moves.
[10:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Metapod evolved into Butterfree!
[10:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Butterfree, use Sleep Powder!"
[10:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: None of the Primeape have the Vital Spirit ability.
[10:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Gives an immunity to sleep.)
[10:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: a Pack of Primo Primeape
[10:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WHOA
[10:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: VERITY HAS A LAPRAS
[10:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: YES
[10:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh...
[10:14 PM] RawkHawk2010: Play Determination plz.
[10:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Verity's Lapras doesn't have Ash's Lapras's voice.
[10:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Her's sounds like an old woman.
[10:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...well Lapras went away fast.
[10:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now there's a Shiny Butterfree being harassed by a Fearow.
[10:15 PM] RawkHawk2010: Guess this'll be when Butterfree gets released.
[10:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And Ash's saves the Shiny.
[10:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well.
[10:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: Was that it?
[10:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: So Butterfree's (probably) gone?

Pokémon the Movie I Choose You Shiny Ash's Butterfree flying away
Bye-bye Butterfree. Again.

[10:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh...so it transitioned to the Risen Mountains without explaining what happened to Butterfree.
[10:16 PM] RawkHawk2010: Mount Tensei.
[10:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Off-screen death?
[10:17 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh.
[10:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nevermind, there's a whole Butterfree pack along the way.
[10:17 PM] RawkHawk2010: That wasn't segued well.
[10:17 PM] RawkHawk2010: At all.
[10:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And pink Butterfree happens to be there.
[10:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're doing the courtship dance like in the anime.
[10:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sorrow is explaining how the world works like Brock.
[10:17 PM] RawkHawk2010: Every time the dudes go to a new location you have to assume years passed.
[10:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Verity is warning against flying to the South.
[10:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Butterfree is one of my good friends..."
[10:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: Reminder that I did this with my pet crab.
[10:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: Except I released it after it had escaped on its own for six months.
[10:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Butterfree doesn't want to leave Ash.
[10:18 PM] RawkHawk2010: And survived in fucking Alabama.
[10:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And Ash demands that Butterfree leave him.
[10:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And so they go.
[10:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Why is it okay for Ash to ditch his Butterfree but not okay for Cross to ditch his Charmander?
[10:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: :apollo_thinking:
[10:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Good point.
[10:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Immediately after Butterfree leaves, Raikou is just sitting there on a cliff.
[10:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Roars, and then runs.
[10:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Who is this dude?
[10:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: I remember when people thought this dude was Future Ash.
[10:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: ala Future Missile.
[10:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cross is hiding behind a rock.
[10:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wait, people actually thought this was Future Red.
[10:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Bonji the old man somehow knows that Ash has met Entei, Raikou, and Suicune,
[10:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And knows that Marshadow is stalking Ash.
[10:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash's Rainbow Wing does some kind of light beam at the mountain.
[10:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: Team Rocket is surprisingly minor in this.
[10:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They haven't even actually interacted with Ash.
[10:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: INCINEROAR
[10:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And Cross and Lyncaroc.
[10:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cross wants Ash's Rainbow Wing.
[10:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Might makes right!"
[10:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cross says the weak are "Trash."
[10:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And those who lose are "Worse than trash!"
[10:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: I thought he said "Might makes fright!"
[10:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Marshadow decides to appear.
[10:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: I think I've seen Marshadow but I always thought it was some baby prevo thing not worthy of attention.
[10:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Charmeleon and Incineroar are fighting.
[10:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Note Ash only has Pikachu and Charme-...
[10:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nevermind Charmeleon is evolving to Charizard.
[10:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Because of course it would.
[10:26 PM] RawkHawk2010: Pinnacle of the film.
[10:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Aw, who cares?" - Cross on Charizard
[10:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I like Cross.
[10:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He doesn't like Charizard either.
[10:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash tells Charizard to use Big Attack?
[10:27 PM] RawkHawk2010: This guitar dub music reminds me of the Xenoverses.
[10:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Incineroar tries an anti-air, but Charizard uses Seismic Toss.
[10:27 PM] RawkHawk2010: Except slightly better.
[10:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Charizard's Flamethrower beats Incineroar.
[10:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Didn't the movie previously establish that Charmeleon lost because it just evolved and didn't know how to use its power?
[10:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So why does Charizard get to fly around and not have that same problem?
[10:28 PM] RawkHawk2010: Charizard doesn't hate Ash at all.
[10:28 PM] RawkHawk2010: That's not right.
[10:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cross claims to have seen Ho-Oh.
[10:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But Ho-Oh didn't give Cross a wing.
[10:29 PM] RawkHawk2010: I miss Iris's philosophy.
[10:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cross just stole Ash's Rainbow Wing.
[10:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And the wing turned black.
[10:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now Calamity Ganon is back.
[10:29 PM] RawkHawk2010: Where someone asked her what her dreams were and she was like, "I guess I really don't have any."
[10:30 PM] RawkHawk2010: This looks like the Calamity Ganon battlefield.
[10:30 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's littered with purple Calamity Ganon ooze.

Pokémon the Movie I Choose You Marshadow evil antagonist controlling everyone on the mountain
Marshadow is Calamity Ganon.

[10:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Marshadow is controlling Lyncaroc.
[10:31 PM] RawkHawk2010: Charizard: "Hmph!"
[10:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Marshadow is trying to possess everyone.
[10:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Just because it feels like it, I guess.
[10:32 PM] RawkHawk2010: Bonji called Ash Young Man
[10:32 PM] RawkHawk2010: Young Man Young Girl Welcome to Wally World You're Gonna Be a Cashier Someday!
[10:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Gravelers are pretty much Gorons.
[10:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I like how possessed Lyancroc and regular Midnight Lycanroc's eyes are both messed up.
[10:33 PM] RawkHawk2010: The Graveler the game trades to you in Sun is nicknamed "Veler"
[10:33 PM] RawkHawk2010: And that sucked.
[10:34 PM] RawkHawk2010: Because it immediately evolved to Golem.
[10:34 PM] RawkHawk2010: So you couldn't keep it a GraVELER even if you wanted to.
[10:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cross is turning into a good guy.
[10:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: rofl
[10:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: Arbok and Charizard
[10:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: Was that Jessie's?
[10:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Arbok is randomly strangling Charizard.

Pokémon the Movie I Choose You Arbok Wrap strangling Charizard
YES! YES! CRUSH THAT OVERRATED CHARIZARD!

[10:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No it's a wild.
[10:35 PM] RawkHawk2010: Electabuzz sounds terrifying.
[10:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash is gonna jump off a cliff again.
[10:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash begs Pikachu to go inside his Poké Ball.
[10:36 PM] RawkHawk2010: was graveler charging up an energy ball?
[10:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: He can learn that?
[10:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash is doing the same thing he did with the Spearow.
[10:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (no)
[10:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: It was something green.
[10:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And Pikachu tried to do the same thing
[10:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: but tripped off his shoulder like it was Brawl.
[10:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: aamfytgmghjtghngfb
[10:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: rfvnurtfjinyrtfggnjmythgbfm rt
[10:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: fg
[10:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
[10:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: LOL
[10:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: I FORGOT ALL ABOUT THAT
[10:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Pikachu, why won't you go into your Poké Ball?"
[10:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "IT'S...BECAUSE... I ALWAYS WANT TO BE WITH YOU." - Pikachu.
[10:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Charizard knocked Arbok off its neck.
[10:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash di-...
[10:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: oh crap he did
[10:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pikachu went into its ball
[10:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: plz stay dead
[10:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: and Ash is dematerialising out of existence.
[10:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But Pikachu still has the hat.
[10:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash sparked away.
[10:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: Pikachu going Super Saiyan.
[10:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And speaking of
[10:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: yeah, speaking of spark, Pikachu zaps the whole mountain.
[10:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And cries to the heavens.
[10:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Where it segues to Ash.
[10:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Having an alt-reality nightmare?
[10:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Something is rematerialising in front of Pikachu.

Pokémon the Movie I Choose You Ash revived from the dead returns
How about Luxray comes back instead? Leave Ash dead.

[10:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash in his nightmare is running through a field of cherry blossoms.
[10:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ugh Ash is alive.
[10:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, that was pointless.
[10:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, his name is Sorrel.
[10:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: I think his name is "Sorrel"
[10:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not Sorrow.
[10:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: yea
[10:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WHOOPS.
[10:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Marshadow goes away and Calamity Ganon ooze goes away.
[10:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash can climb rocks but not stairs?
[10:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Rainbow appears despite no rain.
[10:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And Ho-Oh too.
[10:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ho-Oh is making Ash the Rainbow Hero.
[10:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I don't know what the Rainbow Hero is supposed to even do?
[10:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: wait
[10:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or why they need one.
[10:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: where's suicune
[10:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh, wot do you mean?
[10:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Suicune appeared in front of Verity.
[10:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: Really?
[10:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah, I mentioned it.
[10:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: I uhhhhhh missed that.
[10:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ho-Oh descends.
[10:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "HO-OH, LET'S HAVE A BATTLE."
[10:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: I like Ho-Oh's cry.
[10:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ho-Oh doesn't seem amused.
[10:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Pikachu, I choose you!"
[10:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pikachu Thunderbolted Ho-Oh and Ho-Oh didn't flinch.
[10:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ho-Oh used Sacred Fire or something and almost killed Pikachu.
[10:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Zooms out to the mountain.
[10:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And segues to a Pokémon Center.
[10:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash tells Nurse Joy he was battling Ho-Oh and she literally answered, "That's nice."
[10:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Old man says another guy will become the Rainbow Hero now.
[10:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I guess Ash wasn't worthy.
[10:46 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wasn't there someone at the Pokemon Olympics who looked like this?
[10:46 PM] RawkHawk2010: When Ash had to run the torch?
[10:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cross says goodbye.
[10:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yes.
[10:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sorrel is going to learn about the birds.
[10:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Verity is going to her mom.
[10:47 PM] RawkHawk2010: "I'm going my own way."
[10:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ash says he'll be a Pokémon Master.
[10:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (In other words, he's clueless.)
[10:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So Lucario didn't do anything this movie.
[10:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: At least Piplup did something.
[10:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkD-525o2ZA
[10:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh hey, look.
[10:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: LUGIA
[10:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: THE FIRST ACTUAL MUSIC OF THE MOVIE
[10:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: XERNEAS
[10:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ASH'S MOM
[10:48 PM] RawkHawk2010: Inexcusable.
[10:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Zoom out to rainbow.
[10:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Credits.
[10:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: With a song.
[10:49 PM] RawkHawk2010: Uh

Welcome back, Dawn! (She doesn't seem sure of what she's actually doing in this movie.)

[10:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Iris from a tree.
[10:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I was about to ask wtf was that.
[10:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cilan.
[10:50 PM] RawkHawk2010: I completely forgot about Cilan.
[10:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Clemont and Bonnie.
[10:51 PM] RawkHawk2010: I remember Serena.
[10:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Serena (with hair)
[10:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought silhouette Brock was Gary.
[10:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Master Ball and the other balls in credits.
[10:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Including Dusk Ball.
[10:52 PM] RawkHawk2010: Dusk Ball is Best Ball
[10:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No GS Ball.
[10:52 PM] Kamek: Gotta say this movie is awesome
[10:52 PM] Kamek: So far
[10:52 PM] RawkHawk2010: I try to still use the Lure Ball.
[10:52 PM] RawkHawk2010: For novelty's sake.
[10:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well the movie is awful.
[10:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Wobbuffet appears in the credits.
[10:53 PM] Kamek: Random staryu "HI YAH"
[10:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: Heracross!
[10:53 PM] Kamek: I'm at 38:30
[10:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: -38:30 or...
[10:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...You're 38 minutes into the movie?
[10:53 PM] Kamek: Yes
[10:53 PM] Kamek: That last one
[10:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You got an hour to go!
[10:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: Score composed by El Goldfarb
[10:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: That's you Ludwig.
[10:53 PM] Kamek: Charmander is disgustingly cute
[10:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Music and lyrics by El Goldfarb"
[10:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 0:00
[10:53 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well
[10:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Do we let this go until Kamek is done? lol
[10:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It'll be midnight by then.
[10:54 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's sad but
[10:54 PM] RawkHawk2010: my favorite part of the movie was the last three minutes
[10:54 PM] RawkHawk2010: aka the credits
[10:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...mine too.
[10:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Wait I need to rewind and get screenshot of Arbok.
[10:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: Did you get Dawn?
[10:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yes.
[10:55 PM] Kamek: Do whatever
[10:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: Dawn was the best part of the movie that she wasn't in.
[10:55 PM] Kamek: Also I love the fact that
[10:56 PM] Kamek: The PC's
[10:56 PM] Kamek: Don't have the telephone piece
[10:56 PM] RawkHawk2010: To be fair, the movie probably would have been considerably more engaging without El Goldfarb's shitty score.
[10:56 PM] Kamek: It's hilarious and indicative of the time
[10:56 PM] Kamek: Holy balls ash destroyed that snorlax
[10:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: erm
[10:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: XD
[10:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: I've been calling him El Goldfarb and apparently it's Ed.
[10:57 PM] RawkHawk2010: I like El Goldfarb better.
[10:58 PM] RawkHawk2010: "Ed Goldfarb is the current composer of the score for the English-language dub of the Pokémon anime. Goldfarb joined the series in Pokémon the Series: XY, replacing John Loeffler and David Wolfert. He is a member of The Sad Truth, who is credited for performing the English opening themes of the XY series and Sun & Moon series."
[10:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah my favourite moment of the movie is Arbok pwning Charizard.

Pokémon the Movie I Choose You Arbok Wrap Charizard's neck to the ground
DON'T LET GO UNTIL CHARIZARD PERISHES!
...AND HOLD ON A LITTLE LONGER AFTER THAT.

[10:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So much I got TWO screenshots.
[10:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: https://twitter.com/edgoldfarbmusic?lang=en
[10:59 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well aren't you just "cool"-looking.
[11:00 PM] RawkHawk2010: That said it's not exactly his fault...
[11:00 PM] RawkHawk2010: TPCi are the cheapsters.
[11:00 PM] Kamek: Cross is kinda
[11:00 PM] RawkHawk2010: I'm looking at the Japanese score.
[11:00 PM] Kamek: Right?
[11:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah.
[11:00 PM] Kamek: But also a creep
[11:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cross is my favourite character.
[11:01 PM] Kamek: I'm at 45
[11:01 PM] RawkHawk2010: Mine is Lapras.
[11:01 PM] Kamek: Ash was being stupid
[11:02 PM] Kamek: Pikachu totally would have won
[11:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: wtf
[11:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: Lapras has her own theme in the Japanese score.
[11:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: Was she around long enough for that?
[11:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 5 seconds?
[11:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: lol
[11:02 PM] RawkHawk2010: Her theme is a 25-second-long remix of Surf.
[11:03 PM] Kamek: Freaky shadow monster is turning ash into a jerk
[11:04 PM] Kamek: Oooo freaky dream of world with no Pokémon
[11:05 PM] RawkHawk2010: The soundtrack is mostly good remixes of season one anime music, aka all of which the I Choose You! dub used...one of?
[11:06 PM] Kamek: Real question. Why do all Japanese kids get to go to the roof of school buildings
[11:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2icBm4Xrp0
[11:06 PM] RawkHawk2010: ^ the original score has this
[11:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: So TPCi pretty much ruined all of the nostalgia for us.
[11:07 PM] RawkHawk2010: @Kamek Japan doesn't have space for ranch-style schools.
[11:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm pretty sure the movie is bad in Japanesem, too.
[11:08 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yeah but good music can save something at least a little.
[11:09 PM] Kamek: I really wish that I could have seen this in  theaters
[11:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I still didn't know it was  in theatres.
[11:09 PM] Kamek: "You forgot that pokemon existed! That must be the worst dream ever!"
[11:10 PM] RawkHawk2010: I knew cuz someone posted an audience reaction to Pikachu spoilering.
[11:10 PM] Kamek: Oh balls he killed the luxray
[11:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...
[11:14 PM] Kamek: Sweet l'après bro
[11:14 PM] Kamek: *lapras
[11:14 PM] Kamek: Freaking French autocorrect
[11:16 PM] Kamek: Oh god no
[11:16 PM] Kamek: No no nono no
[11:16 PM] Kamek: NOOOOOOO
[11:16 PM] Kamek: NOT AGAIN
[11:16 PM] Kamek: butterfree ;_;
[11:18 PM] Kamek: OH GOD IT'S CRYING
[11:19 PM] Kamek: Maybe it's a good thing I didn't see it in theaters
[11:19 PM] RawkHawk2010: Someday I want Kamek to stream him inside the theatre doing commentary.
[11:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Isn't that illegal?
[11:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yes but he might could get away with it cuz of his voice.
[11:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: A sexier Mystery Science Theatre basically.
[11:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Although
[11:20 PM] Kamek: I could
[11:21 PM] Kamek: I have theatrical training
[11:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They teach bootlegging?
[11:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: If you high-pitched the audio afterwards to keep Twitch from taking it down, then the voice would be moot.
[11:22 PM] Kamek: Oh no
[11:22 PM] Kamek: The mountain is full of vibranium
[11:23 PM] Kamek: Marshadow

[11:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Current.
[11:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: "Event Only"
[11:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: That explains a lot.
[11:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: "Able to conceal itself in shadows, it never appears before humans, so its very existence was the stuff of myth."
[11:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: Hah!

[11:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But I like it being a mystery if Kamek ever got to the end.
[11:29 PM] RawkHawk2010: Nope.
[11:29 PM] RawkHawk2010: Big problem.
[11:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Why?

[11:39 PM] Kamek: Oh balls Pikachu nuked everyone
[11:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm kind of interested in Kamek's ball obsession.
[11:40 PM] Kamek: I feel like this isn't helping the furry situation

[11:42 PM] Kamek: I feel like... That was unnecessary
[11:43 PM] Kamek: Just the beginning of the adventure and other the scene with the sleeping bag...
[11:43 PM] Kamek: Coupled with this
[11:43 PM] Kamek: Just makes it slightly.... Uh.... What's the word
[11:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Formulaic? Cheesey?

[11:46 PM] Kamek: Maybe I'm reading too into it
[11:47 PM] Kamek: Lol lucario was so useless
[11:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: A shame, because I use both Lucario and Jigglypuff in Smash.
[11:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: All Jigglypuff did was faint, and all Lucario did was... nothing.
[11:49 PM] Kamek: Lucario and piplup were only there because they're the most popular
[11:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Since you seem done, wot'd you think  of the movie?
[11:50 PM] Kamek: Credits
[11:51 PM] Kamek: Good. But red's movie was better
[11:51 PM] Kamek: This. Made. Me want to watch the anime again
[11:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The anime is actually better than this.
[11:52 PM] Kamek: I think Red's movie was a love letter to the games.
[11:52 PM] Kamek: And this movie was a love letter to the anime
[11:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: More bad things Team Love does.
[11:53 PM] Kamek: I enjoyed it
[11:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: At least someone did!

  1. There's something personally humorous about how relentless you are on Charizard, while showing your passionate support for Jigglypuff. It must hurt for Charizard, but still humorous nonetheless.

    Also, I enjoyed the Pokémon Origins movie! Even if it had more engagements with Charizard, every Pokémon film about Gen 1 does.

    All of you had... "intense" reactions when Pikachu talked (or Ash died), even Rawk. With that into consideration, do you recommend people like me to watch the film while it's free?

    1. Jigglypuff is spectacular. <3

      But come on, you saw that Charmander got totally ignored in its own capture arc, but all of a sudden it's almost as important as Pikachu when it grows wings and is the guy to beat Ash's movie-rival, even though that breaks the movie's own rules of "just-evolved Pokémon have trouble being fighting-fit right after an evolution" established with chain-smoker Charmeleon.

      (Is Rawk supposed to not have intense reactions?)

      You could find better ways to spend 90 minutes even if it's free. It's...not a good movie.

    2. Actually, I'm pretty sure the "just evolved" thing was a dub-induced plot-hole.

      Think about what had happened. Incineroar landed a THROAT CHOP. Charmeleon kept COUGHING when trying to use Flamethrower.

      Granted, in the games, Throat Chop only prevents the victim from using sound-based moves, but it would seem they took the whole idea of "being struck in the throat makes it hard to breathe fire/water/whatever", which is actually a logical take on the concept.

    3. Don't ruin "chain-smoker Charmeleon"; it's amazing alliteration.

      Though what you say makes sense and it's definitely another knock against the dub on top of all of the music substitution. I, of course, have no insight on what happened in the original Japanese as to whether or not that plot-hole was there, but there is no dang reason why that plot-hole should even exist. Someone had to come up with that and say it makes more sense than just saying that Throat Chop is overpowered.

  2. Since this movie sounds pretty underwhelming, which other Pokémon movie would you suggest for people like me who are not too big into the series?

    1. Pokémon 2000, particularly for the Power of One song. It's the 2nd movie.

      The 21st movie (the live-reacted one is the 20th) will be a loose remake of the 2nd movie. It may or may not have Power of One, but based on what this movie did to music, probably not.
