YMMV / Pokémon Heroes

  • Continuity Nod: At the end, when Annie and Oakley are in prison, they are looking over a book while in prison. The book has an image of Lawrence III and his flying fortress from the second movie.
  • 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.
  • Les Yay: Annie and Oakley.
  • Moe: Latias.
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: While not as highly regarded as the third movie or the original Japanese of the first, this is still regarded as one of the better movies of the original series, and at least often viewed as a good bit more enjoyable than the second or fourth (though how negatively the heavily editing of the dub affects that enjoyability is debated).
  • The Woobie:
    • Latias. She's beaten up by Espeon, Ariados and Aerodactyl, nearly drowned, and loses her brother in less than twelve hours.
    • Latios, too. He gets curbstomped by the aforementioned Pokémon to protect his sister, is put through Cold-Blooded Torture by Annie and Oakley, and ends up dying to protect Alto Mare.
