| Not Bad by Any Means, Just Nothing Special Compared to Some of The Others
The sixth Pokémon movie is decent, but it's quite underwhelming compared to the best Pokémon movies. There are some things to enjoy, but there just wasn't much that was great or notable about it.

There wasn't much plot, to be honest. Most of the movie takes place at a circus and the last half hour was mostly spent on getting Jirachi to his home.

Jirachi was kind of cute but rather annoying for the most part, and I felt that his relationship with Max was kind of forced. It had the basic message of lasting friendship that while nice, has already been done before.

There wasn't much excitement until the last 20 minutes and the animation is still good but a definite step down from "Pokémon Heroes."

However, I will admit that there were some funny moments involving Jirachi, and Butler was fairly interesting as a villain. Even if a lot of the magic show scenes went on a little too long, some of them were quite entertaining.

Groudon is another cool legendary Pokémon, and the final 20 minutes are exciting enough. I also loved the "Make a Wish" song at the end credits.

Easily the worst Pokémon movie up to this point and, in my opinion, one of the least memorable. However, even though it's nothing special, at least it's never boring. It's not the worst Pokémon movie and it's still worth a watch, but don't expect anything mind-blowing.
