Movie Review of the French version by Stéphane Dumas
Pikachu's Summer Vacation: it's a pretty nice movie but not as exciting as Mewtwo Strikes Back 3.5 out of 5 Pokeballs
Mewtwo Strikes Back: Since I reside in Québec, Canada, I saw the French dub of the film, it was very well done compared of the dub of the tv series which was done in France and the French Teletoon network actually airs (an interesting note is that in France, Ash is named "Sacha" and Misty is named "Ondine"), but Nintendo Canada tells to do a dub specefic for Québec since we already know the American names.
Since they dubbed the film from the American dub we had the same mess ups sometimes with the Pokémon names (Ash called a Pidgeot a Pidgeotto). I just regret that when Ash was transformed into a rock, that Misty don't go near Ash, cried and hugged Ash after he revived, it could've been a great scene. But despite this note, I give 4.5 out of 5 Pokeballs.
