* CityOfCanals: Altomare.Altomare -- because, as stated, it's based on Venice.


* NeverSayDie: Averted for the second movie in a row. DarkerAndEdgier, much?


* DontTouchItYouIdiot: Twice. Ash leans against the DMA upon seeing Bianca for the first time, only for Lorenzo to scold him for even brushing against the weapon. The second time is when Annie foolishly tries to take the corrupted Soul Dew despite the old man's warnings. It ends up getting her and Oakley trapped in the cockpit ([[LaserGuidedKarma and eventually arrested]]) and creates a huge tidal wave that [[spoiler: Latios has to sacrifice his life for.]] Thanks a lot, girl.

** In the ending [[spoiler: as the group leave on a boat, they see three forms of two Latios and one Latias in the air. Whether it's Latias reunited with her father and brother, a family of her own or a trio of different Latios and Latias is left up to the audience's interpretation]].

Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: Annie, trying to remove the warped Soul Dew from the DMA. Even without Lorenzo's warning, you'd think that the dark colors and creepy aura would give the girl the message "don't touch and stay away", but nope.

They later meet an aspiring artist named Bianca[[note]]not [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite that]] Bianca[[/note]] and her grandfather who runs the city's museum. The two of them hold a secret: the knowledge of Latios and Latias, twin dragon Pokémon who protect the city and the Soul Dew, a mystic orb that keeps the city safe from natural disasters.

On a side note, this was the final film with the original cast, as well as being the last movie to get a theatrical release in the U.S. until [[Anime/PokemonTheMovieBlackAndWhite Pokémon the Movie: White - Victini and Zekrom]] got a one weekend limited release in 2011.

On a side note, this was the final ''Pokémon'' film with the original cast, as well as being the last ''Pokémon'' movie to get a theatrical release in the U.S. until [[Anime/PokemonTheMovieBlackAndWhite for over 16 years. Starting with ''[[Anime/PokemonTheMovieBlackAndWhite Pokémon the Movie: White - Victini and Zekrom]] Zekrom]]'' in 2011, subsequent films got a one weekend one-weekend limited release engagements in 2011.select cities, but it wouldn't be until ''Film/PokemonDetectivePikachu'' when the franchise got another major nationwide theatrical release.


* NiceMeanAndInBetween: Annie is in no way 'nice', but she's easily the better of the duo in terms of morality: she's ambivalent about the use of the DMA to begin with, clearly worried when Oakley starts going DrunkWithPower, horrified when the DMA goes out of control and puts Oakley in danger, and doesn't seem too off-put by the fact Latios is rescued by the heroes. As mentioned under PetTheDog, the fact she has an Espeon shows she clearly cares for it as well, as it only evolves at max happiness.


* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: If this movie is going to be discussed, then odds are it will mostly be about [[spoiler:Latios' death]].


Added DiffLines:

%%* BittersweetEnding

Added DiffLines:

* ButtMonkey: The only reason the Rocket trio even show up in this film is for them to get soaked or screwed over in some way by the main plot. Their last scene in the film is them being swept away by the returning Altomare waters (not counting the credits where they're back pursuing the twerps in their Magikarp sub). Kind of what happens when you're DemotedToExtra.


Added DiffLines:

* DemotedToExtra: Team Rocket (not counting the dub's change of making Annie and Oakley part of the team) doesn't even get to share a scene with the twerps in this film.


* AdaptationalBadass: The dub makes Annie and Oakley Team Rocket spies, while in the original they were just a thieving duo.



* ContinuityNod: 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 [[Anime/{{Pokemon 2000}} the second movie]].

* DarkerAndEdgier: While the movies are in general darker than the anime, Heroes takes it up a bit: battles are quick, brutal and fought [[CombatPragmatist very unfairly]], with MookChivalry soundly averted and attacks on the Trainer established early on as a viable tactic by both sides. We see what amounts to a torture scene as Latios' energy is drained from him by the DMA, and the movie concludes with [[spoiler: Latios KilledOffForReal, a first in a series with a number of {{Disney Death}}s.]]]]
