* DarkerAndEdgier: While the movies are in general darker than the anime, Heroes takes it up a bit: battles are quick, brutal and fought [[CombatPragmatist very unfairly]], with MookChivalry soundly averted and attacks on the Trainer established early on as a viable tactic by both sides. We see what amounts to a torture scene as Latios' energy is drained from him by the DMA, and the movie concludes with [[spoiler: Latios KilledOffForReal, a first in a series with a number of {{Disney Death}}s.]]]]

''Pokémon Heroes: Latios and Latias'' is the fifth in the series of ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'' movies and the first not to have a number in the title. it tells the story of Ash and friends' visit to the Venice-like city of Altomare, where they take part in a water chariot race. They later meet an aspiring artist named Bianca, and her grandfather who runs the city's museum. The two of them hold a secret: the knowledge of Latios and Latias, twin dragon Pokémon who protect the city and the Soul Dew, a mystic orb that keeps the city safe from natural disasters. When a pair of thieves, Annie and Oakley, come to steal the Soul Dew and revive the ancient Pokémon at the museum, it's up to Ash and his friends, as well as new allies, to stop them.

* WouldHurtAChild: Annie has no issues with ordering Espeon to directly attack Ash, who's ''ten'', and later Bianca, who can't be much older; the Sun Pokemon's Psychic attack is potent enough to knock Bianca clean out. Oakley tops her sister by trying to out-and-out kill Ash through the Fossil Pokemon and later manipulating Altomare's waters to try to drown him.

* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Latios]]. Shocking because every other death in the movies up to this point had been a DisneyDeath.



* MissingTrailerScene: The original Japanese trailer had almost nothing from the final movie. Examples include a reanimated Kabutops skeleton, some sort of red energy monster emerging from the Defense Mechanism, and the gang standing around a glowing Soul Dew INDOORS, with no sign of Latias. Shame - that Kabutops skeleton looked awesome.
** In an interesting case, the trailers also had music that was not used in the movie or included in its soundtrack. It was released on the music's composer in an album a few years later and was the basis for the ending song.

* PaperThinDisguise: Sort of. Latias takes on the form of her friend Bianca, but Bianca's haircut greatly resembles Latias's ears, potentially revealing her true nature.

* AdaptationalWimp: Latios and Latias are Legendaries, and impressive fighting forces in the games, with solid stats all around and an array of devastating attacks. In the movie, their fight against Annie and Oakley is just them flailing around and getting pummeled by Swifts and Night Shades before getting wrapped up in electrified nets.



* BadassNormal: Annie and Oakley.

to:

* BadassNormal: Annie and Oakley. They're skilled acrobats and a part of the fight to capture the Eon Duo as much as their Pokemon, revealing no shortage of nifty gear to counter out the dragon's tricks.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Ross mentions how peaceful Altomare is, and Latios and Latias haven't been seen in ages because they haven't needed to protect the city. It's revealed Latios spends his time in the Secret Garden watching over the Soul Dew, while Latias just wanders around the city having fun. When something bad does happen, the twins have no clue how to deal with it, not even using offensive moves like Luster Purge or Mist Ball: their only 'strategy' is to turn invisible and slam into their foes at high speed, and [[CurbStompBattle when that's taken away they get utterly stomped.]]
