We have been watching Pokémon since our childhood and we never get tired of it, admit it. And this anime movie also remade as Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution, is one of the most liked movie of all times. Ash and Pikachu meet Mewtwo which has been produced artificially and what follows is power packed adventure. If you ask me, what has been the highlight of the movie… I would say, the scene when Ash has turned into stone and Pikachu is weeping, trying hard to revive Ash. That really moved me and I guess that’s how anime is different from cartoons. Its characters are so much emotionally evolved that you feel an instant connection with them.
