YMMV: Pokémon Heroes

  • Animation Age Ghetto: By changing the backstory drastically and making the villains members of Team Rocket, many fans would agree that this would be the first black spot for the anime.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Annie and Oakley.
  • Fanfic Fuel: Alto Mare is a pretty popular choice of places used in fanfics. Being based on Venice no doubt helps its cause.
  • Fix Fic: For any works involving the Eon Duo in the anime, it has become a particular common trend to either bring Latios brought back to life or avert his Heroic Sacrifice. Here's an example former and the latter.
  • Les Yay: Annie and Oakley.
  • Moe: Latias.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: 4Kids Entertainment may have changed a lot of anime and films to suit the target audience of under 12-year-olds, but changing the backstory to turn Latias into a superhero duo by including a supervillain with two evil Pokémon has many fans claim that they went too far. Another controversial change is making Annie and Oakley members of Team Rocket and bent on taking over the world rather than an independent duo bent on only conquering Alto Mare. These changes are often pointed out as a reason why the anime does not care on the older fanbase, and was considered one of the most controversial films until the release of Genesect And The Legend Awakened a decade later.
  • The Woobie: Latias. Oh, Jesus. She's beaten up by Espeon, Ariados and Aerodactyl, nearly drowned, and loses her brother in less than twelve hours.
