YMMV / Pokémon: Kyurem vs. The Sword of Justice

Go To

  • Broken Base: While the movie is regarded as one of the better Pokémon movies by fans, there are those who dislike it for various reasons, such as the overabundance of telepathy-using Pokémon (of the five Legendary Pokémon featured, all of them use telepathy), the shorter-than-average runtime, a somewhat thin plot and the Pokémon outshining the humans to the point of rendering their inclusion unnecessary. There are those who actually like the Pokémon overshadowing the humans, the increased emphasis on characterization of said Pokémon, and the character development a good chunk of the cast gets over the course of the movie. Overall, fan opinion is basically split between those who were pleasantly surprised by the movie and those who still found it lackluster.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • In the English dub, Keldeo is voiced by none other than Vic Mignogna of Fullmetal Alchemist (2003) fame. This has spawned many nicknames for Keldeo, including "Fullmetal Musketeer / Pony".
    • Thanks to What We Had to Watch, "My Little Musketeer Water Donkey" has been picking up.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Kyurem. As if his actual appearance wasn't enough, he has a habit of using an extremely predatory Slow Walk when stalking his targets that makes him quite imposing.
  • Superlative Dubbing: Many fans prefer Vic Mignogna as Keldeo than the petite, female Shoko Nagakawa in Japanese.
