Man, it's just sad they rack all the POkemon movies to DVD/show it free on Cartoon NEtwork RATHER then show it nationwide in a theatre. I hate the distributor, they're so lax around Pokemon. They love giving you the TV series but crack up hard when you want to see it in a movie theatre. I'm glad it's respected in Japan.

Give me a translation on 3.40 billion yen to the US currency, just for fun. Isn't it like 3 times over per one dollar?

Well, the reasn why they took Pokemon off the movies here in America is because it was makeing less money as the years go by.

I think it was bad distribution and serious lack of announcing. Some movies if they're that good say the Spiderman 3, it's shown in like 7000 theatres at once. It's kind of ironic that it seems to get the TV ratings here in the US, but can't raise an audience to see it in theatres. IT's amazing it still has an affect on the Japan audience.

I think the distributor was Miramax, but not sure.
