YMMV / Pokémon: Jirachi: Wishmaker

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Take a good, long look at the fake Groudon from this movie. Flash forward to 2014 and the Gen III remakes, Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, introduce Primal Reversion, a transformation for the mascot Legendaries similar in function to Mega Evolution. Three guesses what Primal Groudon greatly resembles.
    • On that note, the final enemy of season 19 (XY and Z) is very similar to the fake Groudon in this movie: a gigantic implacable imposter of a legendary ground type Pokemon, seeking a shiny source of power.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The pseudo-Groudon and its tentacles. It is enormous, drains the land dry while killing all plantlife just by existing, and its tentacles absorb everything they catch. Everything caught by this monster is visible inside it's stomach, struggling in vain to break free. Fighting against it doesn't seem to do anything other than irritate it. No wonder everything runs away when it shows up.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: That subplot with May's wishing thing? Yeah, it seems like something important is going to come from that, but then she forgets to put in the last piece. What an Idiot!
