Pokemon Movie List
Pokémon has a huge tv series, but what about the movies? I know almost everyone seen the first pokémon movie. I remember going with my two friends and getting the special movie event cards for pokémon the first movie. Not only was there special cards, but at the sametime Burger King had a special event - 6 14-Caret Gold Plated Pokémon Cards! I got the whole collection back then. Pokémon has changed and evolved itself over time. The movies get better and better and the variety of the pokémon grow larger and larger. Soon, I assume there will be a whole universe of pokémon. Since the first movie many others have come out, here's a list of all of them!
