Young Pokémon (aka Pokemon) trainer Ash, along with friends Misty and Brock, discover a young boy named Sam and a new
Pokémon called Celebi while searching the forest for Pokémon. The gang nurses the injured Celebi back to health, until they meet an enemy
from the future who is able to take any Pokémon and transform it into a giant evil creature. With Team Rocket creating additional
problems, Ash and friends are forced to use their best battle techniques to save the forest and its Pokémon creatures, along with the
delicate Celebi. With the voices of Veronica Taylor, Rachael Lillis, Ikue Ootani, Eric Stuart and Addie Blaustein. [1:20]
SEX/NUDITY 1 - Female characters are dressed in short-shorts and midriff-baring tops. A boy shows romantic interest in a
girl. A Pokémon mentions his joy at being able to "go naked."
VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A large Pokémon chases a smaller one through a forest, causing the smaller one to fall to the ground.
Later the small creature is seen being chased by two larger creatures -- one of which spews fire at it. A creature shoots fire at a young
boy. A boy attempts to save a small Pokémon by holding it in his arms while he runs through a forest trying to evade a Pokémon hunter
riding a motorcycle. A man holds his hand on another man's throat in a threatening manner, and a man throws another man to the ground.
Various Pokémon are seen captured in cages. A man demonstrates a "dark ball" which can capture Pokémon and turn them into evil giant
creatures -- a large creature that spews fire and destroys the hunting camp is the result of the demonstration. Two boys battle their
Pokémon for fun -- the battle ends when the electrified Pikachu shocks the other Pokémon and the boy. A boy prepares to fight another boy
but then discovers he isn't an enemy. Pikachu shocks a large machine, and a large machine captures a boy and friends along with a small
Pokémon. A boy and Pikachu hang onto a man who rides into the air with a rocket pack while attempting to abduct a Pokémon, Pikachu shocks
the man which send them all falling -- they are all okay after falling to the ground and the man is captured. Team Rocket (a boy, a girl,
and a cat-like Pokémon) travel in a flying device that develops a problem; later we see they have crashed into a forest and are hung up in
a tree. Team Rocket tries to launch a bomb, and Team Rocket falls off a tree limb when a large creature sits beside them. In an attempt to
pick a peach from a tree, Team Rocket falls from a high vehicle to the ground where they argue who will get the peach. Two sets of Pokémon
battle: the battle ends with a head-butt and a "sharp leaf" attack (the leaves have sharp edges and work almost like a
boomerang). A giant fire-spewing Pokémon begins destroying the forest. A man steps
on a boy's hand in which he holds an object the man is attempting to get. An evil Pokémon destroys trees and chases another group of
Pokémon, and an evil Pokémon forms a monster made of trees and other forest debris. A group of people in an airship is attacked by a giant
monster causing them to crash into a lake, and a giant monster shoots some sort of beam at two boys. Pokémon are used to battle a giant
monster, and a giant monster, on which some people and other Pokémon are riding, falls into a lake. A boy holds a small Pokémon, which
appears dead; he attempts to revive it by feeding it berries and then putting it into a lake of healing water. A man grabs an ailing small
Pokémon. A Pokémon scares three other characters. During the opening theme, various Pokémon are seen battling each other, while the lyrics
are about Pokémon preparing to fight. A girl is sucked into a whirlwind, and a girl twists her knee while climbing some rocks.
