"Aaron 1", the song that plays during the montage of the war in the film's prologue. It has since returned for intense action sequences in the series, such as the Nando VS. Zoey battle of the Sinnoh Grand Festival.
Unbeatable. "You may beat some but you can't beat me" indeed.
Ensemble Darkhorse: While already darkhorses in their own right, the Regi Trio have garnered some love in their movie debut, as intimidating and absolutely unstoppable juggernauts with some of the most wonderful yet terrifying vocalizations to date.
Harsher in Hindsight: In Ash's Disney Death scene, where he hurriedly says goodbye to Pikachu and his Pokémon; this film ended up being the final entry in the Pokémon series where Veronica Taylor voiced Ash, and so the scene can be seen as the goodbye to her iteration of him as well.
Ho Yay: Aaron and Lucario have astronomical amounts of this.
Just Here for Godzilla: Some people watch the movie for the titular Lucario and his storyline, leading to some disappointment after the darker, more serious opening gives way to the wacky antics of Ash, his friends, all the "cute" Pokémon, and the Rocket trio. This is interesting, as in most cases of this trope the audience ignores the story in favor of something else. Here, they're coming for Lucario's story and ignore everything else.
Wangst: Lucario falls into this for some but through no fault of his own - because the movie shows right from the start that the situation with Aaron was a misunderstanding and that Lucario's belief that he betrayed him is wrong, it's more difficult to feel for him the way you might have without that knowledge.
