Pokémon Heroes | 2002 | G | - 2.2.0

Ash, the young Pokémon (aka Pokemon) trainer, and Pikachu, his Pokémon companion, find themselves in the midst of intrigue when they travel to the Water Capital of the world, Alto Mare. There they meet two new Pokémon, a brother and sister team that protects a valuable jewel that apparently contains the soul of a man who saved a city from bad Pokémon. But two women steal the jewel and kidnap its protectors, and thus place the city in terrible peril. With the voices of Addie Blaustein, Rachael Lillis, Eric Stuart and Veronica Taylor. Directed by Jim Malone & Kunihiko Yuyama. [1:20]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - A girl (who is actually a Pokémon that can change form) kisses a boy and hugs him. Two women wear tight-fitting outfits that reveal bare shoulders, bare abdomens to the hip and bare backs throughout the movie. A boy flirts with a girl. A boy talks about girls being beautiful and wanting to meet girls.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A machine spins and whirrs as a woman programs it to cause trouble: a pillar of water crashes onto a city and a boy and 2 Pokémon are swept into the water, a huge wave of water approaches a city (it is broken up before striking), and all the water in a water city is dried up. A Pokémon dies and turns into a beam of light. Two Pokémon chase a girl (who is a Pokémon that can change form), one wraps her with what looks like spider webbing and the other does a psychic attack that she flinches from; two other Pokémon and two women are hit by a Pokémon's thunderbolt and are knocked around a little (one woman falls in a canal). Several people are rendered unconscious after Pokémon attacks and are then wrapped in webbing. A woman is trapped in the control center of a machine and another woman is knocked into the control center after being jolted by a jewel that explodes. Two really bad Pokémon are brought back to life from fossils and attack another Pokémon, a boy jumps on its back, another Pokémon attacks it with a thunderbolt, and the boy falls unconscious into water. Two Pokémon are attacked by two other Pokémon; one is wrapped up in netting and is unable to get free. Pokémon attack another Pokémon with a stream of water and it is thrown back. A Pokémon is knocked down by a flying Pokémon that swoops down. During a water chariot race young people race through canal streets; one boy falls off his chariot and nearly crashes into a wall, and later that same boy is pulled off the course, up stairs and falls into water on the other side. Also, a Pokémon falls off a bridge and lands on a boy's face during the race. Two women jump across rooftops and are followed by a boy and a girl and their Pokémon, but they slip and fall and land on the ground below. Two women ride across a cable, drop into a car, race away and fly off a cliff (the car changes into a flying machine). A boy and his Pokémon walk through a dark force field.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
