Trivia

In the original Japanese version, the film was cut to be shown as a three-part special, with it cut on the original airings in the Japanese version due to all three parts airing on the same day. However, all DVD releases, including the English dubbed version, treat it as a film feature special. See more »

Goofs

When Rhyhorn, Nidoqueen and their babies are introduced, we can see that their babies are Rhyhorn babies and Nidoqueen babies. In the Pokémon World it is not important the category of fathers of babies because mothers provides theirs. Because of this, and assuming that the Rhyhorn present in the scene is male since Nidoqueen can only be female, all babies born from that Nidoqueen's eggs should have been either female Nidoran or male Nidoran.

The sequel I've been waiting for!
7 January 2002 | by karigilmoreSee all my reviews

This movie's short, but it's great! I enjoyed watching Ash and co. re-introduce themselves to Mewtwo and bringing back all of the clones! The Pikachu and Meowth clones are great! And Giovanni tries to get Mewtwo back again! What'll happen? Find out for yourselves!
