YMMV: Pokémon 4Ever
  • Awesome Music: The Japanese ending song Ashita Tenki ni Shite Okure (English translation: Let There Be Good Weather).
  • Fridge Brilliance: In the beginning of the movie (40 years from the present), the poacher that was hunting down Celebi had a Scyther. Guess what Dark Celebi's monster looks like?
    • Related to above, Scyther wasn't random. Neither was Houndoom. Both their dual types are at the very least resistant to Celebi's attacks, and both are strong against Celebi's own dual types.
    • While traveling with Ash and co., the viewers see that Sammy has a passion for keeping track of all the different Pokémon he encounters in his sketchbook, and once they realize that Sammy is Prof. Oak, it finally makes sense where the idea for the invention of the Pokédex came from.
  • Fridge Logic: If the Masked Marauder's Pokemon become evil, why do they continue to faithfully follow his orders? Wouldn't evil Pokemon be constantly rebelling?
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The Dark Pokémon are based off the TCG, though nowadays Shadow Pokémon may come to mind.
  • Ho Yay: There's quite a bit of subtext between Sam and Ash, though it becomes somewhat Squick-worthy when viewers find out who Sam is.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Dark Celebi. Those emotionless eyes...
  • Nightmare Retardant: The twig monster Celebi was controlling. It looks creepy at first, but as it gets more screen time, it just looks ridiculous and out-of-place with its conspicuous CGI.
  • Tear Jerker: Celebi's Disney Death.
  • The Woobie: Celebi.
  • Writer Cop Out: Some people might see the emergence of dozens of time-traveling Celebi to revive the main Celebi as this, especially since the film, for some reason, faked the audience out once with a previous Deus ex Machina that turned out to not do any good.
