Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie will thrill Pokémon fans, but a helpful intro makes it accessible to newbies. Cartoonish mild violence occurs throughout, and one character appears to be electrocuted. The main human characters are a boy and girl who operate well as a team, along with their Pokémon buddies.
Cartoonish mild fighting throughout, with weapons ranging from thunderbolts to seed flares to flying magnets. Giratina appears to be electrocuted in a machine designed to kill him.
Emphasis on helping friends, teamwork, and bravery. Shaymin is a gratitude PokÃmon with a singularly ungracious attitude towards one character, which is pointed out repeatedly. One character sacrifices his life's work when he realizes that to complete it would put the world in harm's way.
May induce sudden need for PokÃmon trading cards.
