From IMDB: "Pokémon: Giratina and the Sky Warrior" is the English title for the eleventh theatrical movie spin-off from the popular ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'' TV series. The movie's basic premise centers around the existence of a "Reverse World," a kind of alternate universe designed to correct imbalances in the "Real World." Five years before the events of this movie, a research scientist named Newton Graceland apparently discovered the Reverse World and its sole resident Pokémon, [[OlympusMons Giratina]], a winged, six-legged, metallic dinosaur-like creature. Newton and his assistant [[MeaningfulName Zero]] plot to harness Giratina's power and take over the reverse world.

Series regulars Ash, Dawn, and Brock, along with their regular Pokémon companions, get roped into all this through the intervention of a cute, grassy little Pokémon called a Shaymin, who's on its way to the "flower garden" for the "flower-bearing" ritual with other Shaymin. Shaymin can communicate telepathically so we can hear its articulated thoughts, making it one of the very few Pokémon who can actually "talk". Shaymin's connection to Giratina and the Reverse World has something to do with its ability to render toxic material harmless via some internal process. Giratina seems to need Shaymin's help. In the end, Newton, who enlists Ash and his friends to help him, finally figures out what Giratina wants.

!!This movie provides examples of:

* AlienGeometries: The Reverse World is chock full of these.
* AmbiguousGender: Shaymin, even for a "genderless" legendary. In Land Forme, it speaks with a soft, feminine voice (and in Japanese, uses feminine pronouns); in Sky Forme, it is headstrong and speaks with a much more masculine voice (and accompanying Japanese pronouns.)
* ArtificialIntelligence: Infi, the autopilot system on the Megarig.
* AwakeningTheSleepingGiant: Zero's meddling in the Reverse World does this to Regigigas.
* AwesomeBackpack: Newton's backpack.
* {{Badass}}: Regigigas takes the cake. His awakening scene and Big Damn Heroes moment more then make up for the Nightmare Fuel of the Regis from Movie 8.
* BadassAdorable: Shaymin in its Sky Form.
** Newton's Shieldon. It's tiny, adorable, and knows ''Flash Cannon''.
* BigBad: Zero.
* BigDamnHeroes: Regigigas, once the glacier starts to move, wakes up and - with the help of a herd of Mamoswine - holds the glacier in place till Ash can do his thing.
* BreakTheCutie: Zero in the Manga.
-->'''Zero:''' *after Newton deletes the blueprints to the Megarig* How could you..PLEASE...DON'T DISAPPEAR!!
-->'''Newton:''' Leave it be, Zero...this is how it should be. We cannot sacrifice Giratina for the sake of our research. Please understand, Zero!
-->'''Zero:''' *crying* All...All I wanted...I hate this polluted world...I just wanted to stay in the beautiful Reverse World...That's all...
* CloudCuckoolander: Newton, at least Ash and Dawn seem to think so. [[spoiler: It's heavily implied he's been floating around the Reverse World for years -- he's physically identical to himself in Zero's memories]].
* CoolAirship: The Megarig.
* ConspicuousCGI: The Mamoswine stampede.
* ContinuityNod: Along with ''Arceus And The Jewel Of Life'', this is part of a series that is kicked off by the events of ''The Rise Of Darkrai''.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Don't worry, Shaymin, [[spoiler:Giratina is not going to eat you]].
* ADayInTheLimelight: This movie seems to focus more on Dawn's relationship with Shaymin in it's land form.
* DecoyProtagonist: Without dying, but who thought '''Dawn''' was the main character in a movie with a cute little fuzzy thing?
* {{Determinator}}: Zero and Newton are both this in their own ways regarding the Reverse World.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:Giratina]] pulled that off. Luckily, Aromatherapy [[spoiler:doesn't just cure all the status ailments in your party, it also brings OlympusMons back to life!]]
** [[spoiler: Giratina was still breathing prior to Aromatherapy]], but it still contributes to the trope.
** The actual moment of the trope [[spoiler: is actually ''the reveal that Giratina is breathing'': Pikachu and Piplup react so dramatically to Giratina's fallen form that the cast assumes the worst...until Dawn notices the dragon's neck moving]].
* EarlyBirdCameo: Giratina's Origin Forme and Shaymin's Sky Forme, ahead of the release of ''[[UpdatedRerelease Platinum]]''. Although the movie was supposed to be the proper debut for Shaymin, if it weren't for hackers discovering all the Generation IV event Pokémon beforehand.
* EldritchAbomination: Giratina.
* EldritchLocation: The Reverse World
--> '''Ash:''' ''This is some weird place...for sure.''
* EvilLaugh: Zero has two of them within the span of the movie.
* {{Flight}}: Shaymin Sky Forme's main ability and distinguishing power from its Land Forme.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Happens at least twice.
** At one scene Brock mentions how the fjord were formed by a glacier and that there is a glacier by the flower garden. [[spoiler: That glacier becomes very important at the climax of the film.]]
** It should also be noted that Dawn mentions how cold it is. [[spoiler: She ends up freezing Zero in said glacier.]]
* GravitySucks: A LOT of sucking in and out of the Reverse World.
* GroundhogDayLoop: Dialga traps Giratina in one of these so it can escape the Reverse World without the latter following it.
* HarmlessFreezing: [[spoiler: Zero is frozen inside of the Mecha Giratina for an unspecified amount of time, but appears completely fine when he is recovered and doesn't seem to have been affected by the cold; this may be due to the thick suit he is wearing]]
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: Zero's jumpsuit comes to mind here.
* InsufferableGenius: Newton brags about how he is a genius (if he does say so himself) and it shows in his CrowningMomentOfAwesome when he shuts down the entire Megarig. He also shows some pretty {{Badass}} skills while piloting that Airbike, avoiding attacks all with two kids along for the ride.
* InvoluntaryShapeshifting: This happens to Giratina whenever it leaves the Reverse World or returns to it, and to Shaymin when it comes in contact with the pollen of Gracidea flowers (as well as when night comes or it gets encased in ice if in its Sky Forme.)
* JerkAss: Shaymin in the beginning of the movie.
* KillerRabbit: Shaymin once it snorts its signature flower.
* LargeHam: Both Newton and Zero seem to be this, though Zero's doesn't really show at first until after the two of them meet up again.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Zero has one: Zero no Wana (Zero's Trap).
* LetsYouAndHimFight
* MadScientist: Zero in that it was once his occupation as the assistant of one. It still counts.
* MagicSkirt: Dawn in the Reverse World. Even though Gravity is berserk there, no PantyShot for you.
* MeaningfulName: Zero...but that one speaks for itself.
** Newton Graceland's Japanese name is Mugen, which means 'infinite', while his English name may come from the scientist Issac Newton, who developed the concept of gravity. The last name 'Graceland' is a play on the Gracidea flower garden.
** Then you have the holographic maid in Zero's ship, Infi, whose name is also a shortened form of infinity; her character design also incorporates lemniscates.
* MirrorUniverse: The Reverse World. Supposed to be an Pokemon equivalent of an antimatter universe.
** Could be that antimatter things are turned into normal matter or vice versa when traveling between worlds.
* MulticoloredHair: Infi, whose hair is stripes of Green, Pink, and Yellow. She also posses TechnicolorEyes which are half pink, half yellow.
* NeverTrustATrailer: Based [[http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/3/32/Movie_11_initial_poster.png on this early poster for the movie]], you'd think Palkia appears, but ultimately, it plays no role in the film whatsoever, appearing only in a brief flashback to [[Anime/PokemonTheRiseOfDarkrai Movie 10]].
** Not to mention some beta scenes that appear in some of the Japanese trailers that don't appear in the movie. But that's Pokemon tradition, anyway.
* PoorCommunicationKills: Giratina's mad at Dialga and needs Shaymin's help, Shaymin thinks Giratina wants to eat it, Ash and the gang think Giratina's evil, and then the plot happens.
* PeekABangs: Zero has bangs that curl upward naturally and cover his right eye.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: RE.GI.GI.GAS.
* APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil: Zero was once Newton's assistant/pupil until Newton deleted the blueprints to the Megarig.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Giratina; they even glow when it's really pissed.
* RedOniBlueOni: Newton is the red to Zero's blue, however it has been seen to flip-flop.
* TheReveal: Zero is seen watching a video on loop that reveals he was Newton's pupil.
* SequelHook: Giratina's still pissed off at Dialga, so the end of the movie has him going off somewhere to go after him.
* SceneryPorn
* SlasherSmile: Zero delivers a rather creepy one at one point.
* SplitPersonality: Shaymin in Land Forme is cowardly, rude, and ungrateful, but when it changes to Sky Forme, it becomes brave, adventurous, and headstrong, almost like it becomes an entirely different Pokemon (he's still keen on being thanked while not thanking others, though).
* TenderTears: Shaymin Land Forme at the end of the movie. As if it ''weren't adorable enough''.
* {{Tsundere}}: Shaymin is a Type A to Ash for the majority of the film.
* UngratefulBastard: Shaymin, ironically. Shaymin is described as the "Gratitude Pokemon", yet spends the entirety of the movie completely taking for granted that Ash and co. are helping him, even going so far as to treat Ash like a ButtMonkey, despite the fact that they are under no obligation to help him whatsoever.
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: The main reason for Zero's actions.
* VillainousBreakdown: Zero appears rather calm and collected at the beginning of the movie, but after he [[spoiler:captures Shaymin and uses it to open a portal using Seed Flare in order to allow Giratina access to the real world again so he can put his evil plan into fruition]], he starts showing a dramatic change from being almost stoic to going off the deep end by the climax of the movie.
** He also had an even BIGGER breakdown in the manga version.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Zero thinks that by destroying the real world, he's saving the Reverse World (which he plans to achieve by causing massive property damage in the Reverse World itself). This causes him to nearly murder the guardian of the Reverse World in the process]].
* WhatTheHellHero: This is the reaction Ash and Co. have when they find out that Newton designed the Megarig.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Zero is this to an extent. He has no problem with [[spoiler: killing Giratina]] for the sake of his own wants and needs, but he honestly thinks that the Reverse World is being polluted by the real world and wants to 'save' it.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Zero.
