Something that popped into my head a few days ago when a friend of mine and I were discussing Pokemon movies.
Now, he was all about how since the Celebi movie, the quality of them has been touch and go–White/Black was very ‘eh’– there’s a certain change that’s been taking place in one main character over their range, and it made a very subtle, very remarkable appearance in “Kyurem vs. The Sword of Justice.”
There’s a scene in the latter third of the movie, where Keldeo and Ash are at the very entrance to Kyurem’s lair.
Keldeo is scared shitless, and has just confessed to Ash what he’s done over the course of the movie, and how he really does not want to face Kyurem again.
And Ash, dear, supposedly-ten-year-old Ash, who has nearly been all over the world at this point,and has faced more legendaries than he wants to think about, clenches his fist, grits his teeth, and then forces a smile on his face, and lets Keldeo know, “Okay, you’re not ready for this battle, I’ll do it for you.”
This is a legendary that even ASH is afraid of facing, when he’s stared down angry gods before. Kyurem’s proved that he’s got power that puts him pretty damn high on the badass scale, not far from Mewtwo.
Ash is sacrificing life and limb for this kid of a pokemon. It takes a lot of guts and compassion and empathy for anyone to do this, let alone a kid of supposed-to-be-ten. Even if Ash was just faking that decision to get Keldeo to get to the heart of himself, he had to act damn sure that he was going to do it regardless of Keldeo’s choice.
I’ve met adults who wouldn’t be willing to do this.
Holy hell Ash, you’ve come a long way from a kid who falls down in the dumps after just one defeat.
Proposed watch list for people first getting into Pokemon the animated series:
Indigo League (through the Viridian Gym)
Pokemon: The First Movie
Indigo League (the rest)
Orange Islands (through Tracey catching Scyther)
The Power of One
Orange Islands (the rest)
Johto League (through Ash getting Chikorita)
Johto League (through Ash getting Noctowl)
Spell of the Unknown
Johto League (through Chikorita evolving)
Johto League (the rest)
First few episodes transitioning into Hoenn (optional)*
Every movie through Pokemon Ranger (in English)
Every movie through Pokemon Kyurem vs the Sword of Justice (in Japanese)**
Kalos League (through Talonflame; in Japanese)***
Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction
Kalos League (through Noibat)
Hoopa & the Clash of Ages
Kalos League (through Snowbelle City)
Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel
Kalos League (the rest)
*I say first few episodes because it provides a nice transition for whether or not the person want to watch all of the episodes from each series. While the series between Johto and Kalos have some real high points, they’ve also some extremely low points. So, it might be best to just select specific episodes if you’re helping a friend get into the series. Otherwise, the movies should be enough.
**After the change in voice actors, the Japanese voice acting tends to be better, overall (especially by XY). Also, no one needs to experience the Genesects movie.
***Same as the movies; the Japanese voice acting tends to be better and more engrossing.
****Origins and Generations (as well as the other animated shorts tied to the games) are optional but worthwhile. If the person has prior experience with the games they could even be inserted after the Johto League. (Watching them beforehand might make for an awkward shift in graphics quality.
