''Pokémon the Movie: White—Victini and Zekrom'' and ''Pokémon the Movie: Black—Victini and Reshiram'' (known in Japan as ''Victini and the Black Hero: Zekrom'' and ''Victini and the White Hero: Reshiram'') are a [[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo pair of]] Anime/{{Pokemon}} movies that together are the 14th movie in the franchise. It follows Ash, Iris, and Cilan meeting the legendary Pokémon known as Victini at the site of an ancient kingdom. The main antagonist is Damon, a descendant of the People of the Earth who wants to restore their kingdom, and will use whatever means necessary to do so.

The ''White'' movie got a limited theatrical release in the US over the weekend of December 3, 2011; the ''Black'' movie was shown on Creator/CartoonNetwork the following week.

!!These movies provide examples of:
* ActionMom: Juanita.
* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore[=/=]WolverinePublicity: Compare [[http://nerdreactor.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/Pokemon-Movie-14-poster.jpg one of the Japanese posters]] to its [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/a8/M14_eng_poster.png English equivalent]].
* AndIMustScream: Victini being trapped within the confines of the Kingdom for thousands of years. Doesn't help matters that his confinement happened right after his best friend died right in front of him. Even worse, he's immortal in the first place. So if not for Damon and Ash, he literally would have been trapped in that tiny mountain kingdom for all eternity.
* AntiVillain: Damon; Type III.
* [[spoiler:TheBadGuyWins: All of Damon's goals are accomplished successfully despite his HeelFaceTurn; [[ExactWords this only means the Kingdom of the Vale was restored without the unintended and unaccounted-for side effects happening]].]]
** [[spoiler:FridgeBrilliance: The Dragon Force became destructive as a result of the two brothers of yore fighting their battle with Reshiram and Zekrom. It was neither the truth of collapse/the ideal of harmony that Ash bore nor the ideal of rebirth/the truth of vigilance Damon possessed that saved the Kingdom of the Vale in the end, but the cooperation between them, and between Reshiram and Zekrom in turn. [[{{Aesop}} Hate and zeal only destroy themselves and everything around them]].]]
* BigBad: Damon.
* TheChosenOne: Ash and Damon are chosen by their respective Legendaries.
* ContinuityCameo: [[Anime/PokemonZoroarkMasterOfIllusions Peg]] appears in the credits.
* TheCorruption: What happens when the Dragon Force gets out of control, complete with disintegrating plants.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Zekrom, in the White movie.
* [[spoiler:EarnYourHappyEnding: How Damon's goals are accomplished without world destruction happening.]]
* ElegantGothicLolita: Damon's Gothitelle in ''Black''. %% Already changed to account for the name switch.
** A trainer dressed as one with a Gothita and a Gothorita is shown in both movies.
* GildedCage: Victini is unable to go beyond the barrier surrounding Eindoak Town. The area is certainly beautiful, and Victini has plenty of friends among the local wild Pokemon, but it's been trapped there for 1,000 years. [[spoiler: It's finally freed at the end of the movie, allowing it to explore the rest of the world.]]
* GutturalGrowler: Zekrom.
* HeelFaceTurn: Damon realizes his mistake and attempts to help save Ash and Victini.
* HeroicSecondWind: Victini, being the Victory Pokemon, gives this to Ash's Pokemon during Eindoak Town's Pokemon competition, making it so that Tepig and Scraggy are the ones delivering {{Curb Stomp Battle}}s instead of receiving them from a [[ElementalRockPaperScissors Samurott]] and a [[LightningBruiser Hydreigon]], respectively.
* HeyItsThatVoice: The dub is more notable here than usual -- Creator/JMichaelTatum as Damon and LeahClark as Carlita! In both versions, NanaMizuki plays Victini.
* LightIsNotGood: Reshiram, in the White version.
* MeaningfulName: Damon- His name can refer to the english word of evil demon or the original greek meaning heavenly god or the greek neutral/unaligned spirit.
* MerchandiseDriven: See OneGameForThePriceOfTwo.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Damon after he realizes that his plan will destroy the world.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: In Japanese, Damon is named Dread Grangil.
* OminousFloatingCastle: The Earth Sword.
* [[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo One Movie For The Price Of Two]]: The movies are almost identical, with only a few minor, cosmetic differences. Given that it's Pokémon, this worked surprisingly well.
** Later averted, as the DVD release bundles the two movies together for about the same price as a single movie.
** The original Australasian release played this straight, with separate DVDs for White and Black, though a combined package of both was later released.
* OnlyTheWorthyMayPass: Only TheChosenOne can progress beyond a certain point in the caverns beneath the castle. Anyone else will just keep going around in circles.
* OutOfFocus: As always, the travelling partners Cilan and Iris hardly get to do anything for the plot.
* RomanticismVsEnlightenment: Reshiram and Zekrom. Zekrom follows heroes with strong ideals (Romanticism) while Reshiram follows heroes who seek the truth (Enlightenment).
** Each movie shows Damon taking one of these to the point where he refuses to consider consequences of his actions.
* SingleTear: When Ash thinks he's about to die from cold and oxygen loss.
* ShoutOut: When a Fire-type battles a Water-type, Cilan comments that an attack is 'not very effective'. Also counts as a MythologyGag.
* SpaceIsCold: When the castle rises up it gets so cold that Ash's tear freezes solid before it hits the ground.
** Justified: They were in Earth's Mesosphere. It's cold there.
* SweetTooth: Victini is a huge fan of Cilan's macarons.
* TalkingToHimself: Both Reshiram and Zekrom are voiced by Creator/MarcThompson in the English version.
* VocalDissonance: Carlita's Hydreigon in the Japanese version has a cry that sounds like a very high-pitched shriek. In the English dub, this was replaced with a slightly deeper growl.
** Also, Samurott's [[PokemonSpeak cry]] resembles a gruff woman's voice in the dub. It could well be female, but a female voice wouldn't be the first thing to come to mind when thinking of a [[LarynxDissonance bearded]] samurai sea lion.
** Despite technically being genderless, Reshiram speaks with a distinctly masculine voice in both the Japanese and English versions, contrasting its feminine appearance.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Damon wants to restore the Kingdom of the Vale to its former glory, blissfully unaware ([[MyGodWhatHaveIDone until his plan is underway]]) that the resulting Dragon Force upheaval would cause catastrophic damage to the land. [[HeelFaceTurn He is quick to do everything in his power to repent once the truth is revealed to him.]]
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The unimportant People of the Vale disappear half-way through the flying castle sequence and aren't shown evacuating with everyone else, though the end credits show them celebrating with everyone else.
* WolverinePublicity: Reshiram and Zekrom. Despite what the trailers would imply, the dragon mascot of each movie only appears for about 15 minutes, with Damon's dragon getting (a bit) more screen time. Most of the movie focuses on Ash, Pikachu and Victini (along with Cilan and Iris).
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Black-and-White Hair]]: Damon's hair coloring is wildly improbable, even for this series. The flashback scene implies it's natural.
