Back in 2009, I stopped watching Pokémon shortly before this movie came out and moved on to other things. I did it because of how the series was losing its steam and was not going to end anytime soon. Watching this movie for the first time recently reminds me of why. While not terrible, this is definitely one of the weaker entries in the series.<br/><br/>Shaymin is one of the if not the most annoying Pokémon ever. He totally got on my nerves. If he is the &quot;gratitude Pokemon&quot;, why was he so full of himself and such a jerk to Ash? The emotional &quot;goodbye&quot; at the end despite him and Ash&#39;s hate/hate relationship had me cringing.<br/><br/>Zero (that&#39;s the best name they could come up with?!) is one of the most boring, generic villains the series has to offer. He is mostly a rehash of the villain from &quot;Pokémon 2000.&quot; Even Vicious from &quot;Pokémon 4Ever&quot; was a more interesting villain than him. His motives were also pretty questionable. What is so great about ruling the reverse world?<br/><br/>I will admit, though, that the reverse world is really cool and interesting. It is such a creative setting, and they did some cool stuff with it. Giratina is one of the best and most &quot;legendary&quot; legendary Pokémon. However, the inclusion of Regigigas was totally unnecessary and added nothing to the story.<br/><br/>There are some good action sequences throughout, but nothing that truly stands out. The animation is really good, however, and I love &quot;It&#39;s a Beautiful World.&quot;<br/><br/>This isn&#39;t a bad movie, but it is brought down quite a bit by a generic villain and an annoying performance by Shaymin. It isn&#39;t really a waste of time, though, and it&#39;s certainly better than most of the later films. Recommended mainly to Pokémon fans.<br/><br/>RATING: C+

In my ongoing quest to destroy my childhood I have set out to (re)watch all Pokémon films, and see how they hold up now that I am an adult. Admittedly, I only remember having seen parts of &quot;Giratina and the Sky Warrior&quot; (which I hated) and none of the later films because I grew up and cultivated good taste, so I should really come up with a replacement for my opening sentence - &#39;In my ongoing quest to ruin my summer holiday...&#39;perhaps?<br/><br/>Those who have seen the last film, &quot;The Rise of Darkrai&quot; will remember it had one of the series&#39; more intimate storylines, revolving around a tender Darkrai who tries to shield his precious garden from the sound and fury of a battle between Dialga and Palkia. That film was bogged down by the writers&#39; notion that 40 minutes of big Pokémon fighting each other was the more interesting storyline.<br/><br/>Likewise, &quot;Giratina and the Sky Warrior&quot; begins with Giratina and Dialga fighting for no apparent reason (Palkia apparently scarpered to the same place as Rayquaza.) This is a dull fight to watch in itself, but even more so because it is constantly interrupted by the Pokémon Shaymin. The pink-white-green hedgehog was probably meant to be cute, but constantly gets in the way and produces a sound that makes you want to pierce your own eardrums.<br/><br/>The pretence of being a sequel is dropped after the introduction. The real story begins when Shaymin reaches Ash and Co., completely ruins their lunch and has to be taken care of. At this moment I was struck with terror. That insufferable runt is going to be the films&#39; emotional core? Well, I wasn&#39;t half prepared for the horrors that were to come, because Shaymin is also granted a voice to match its squeezing in terms of aggravation, and turns out to be of the vilest character. Pokémon went for small and cute before with Jirachi and Manaphi, in films that were not good but at least bearable, but utterly fail to endear the audience in this case: Shaymin is spoiled, arrogant, lazy, weak and whiny.<br/><br/>The walking seizure has to be taken back to its flower garden, or rather: demands to be: &#39;Look here, I have to go to the flower garden, and that&#39;s that!&#39; &#39;I thought you said you could fly,&#39; Ash remarks, sensibly. &#39;I can, but not now,&#39; answers the indolent little monster. Is this supposed to be amusing? Shaymin is quite possibly the most unlikable creation in all of Pokémon, and the audience is stuck with him for the whole plodding film.<br/><br/>The journey that follows is an exercise in tedium: About 45 minutes of carrying, escorting and saving Shaymin, only to be yapped at in return. Fortunately, after reaching the garden, the film becomes boring instead of insufferable. The villain appears and succeeds in catching Giratina, and now has to be defeated, because he is going to destroy most of the world... from an alternate dimension... for some reason. At least there is some more action now (which is good, because there is less talking) and some visual creativity on display in the mirror dimension to distract from that paroxysm on legs. The pleasant mediocrity of these scenes softens the awfulness of the first half somewhat, although the shatteringly underserved sad goodbye at the end is an apt reminder of what has been suffered.<br/><br/>Even though considerably less effort was put into most of the later films, &quot;Giratina and the Sky Warrior&quot; confidently stands amongst the worst in the series. It is not just bland, ill-paced and boring, like the others, but aggressively annoying. Its only achievement is that it made me appreciate the mediocrity of those films, because at least they did not make me want to mutilate my sensory organs.
