The first major motion picture from the Pokemon empire is sure to keep children coming back for more. When a scientist clones a Pokemon named Mew, the resulting clone, Mewtwo, begins cloning Pokemons as well. Enter Ash Ketcham, who travels to the evil island with a group of friends to battle the clones and attempt to restore normalcy to the planet. A definite plus is that the film ends on a moral note, with the realization that fighting is wrong and pointless.
