Pokemon the Movie: Hoopa and the Clash of Ages

Pokemon the Movie: Hoopa and the Clash of Ages

Last year, we've been introduced by the 719th Pokemon known as Diancie and witness its true power in the film Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction. Now, the 720th Pokemon, the mischief-making Hoopa, has arrived and starred in the second Pokemon XY movie titled Hoopa and the Clash of Ages (光輪の超魔神フーパ).

The stars of the movie, none other than Ash Ketchum/Satoshi and his trusty Pokemon Pikachu, Serena, Clemont/Citron, and Bonnie/Eureka, are here for their biggest adventure yet but it wouldn't be complete without the diabolical (but slightly idiotic) Team Rocket as they do...well, you get the idea. In their latest adventure, our heroes arrived at a desert city by the sea and later, they've been introduced by the mythical Pokemon Hoopa. Hoopa has the power to summon different things, especially humans and Pokemon, through its magic ring. What they didn't know that there was a tale about a young hero who managed to stop a major cataclysm unleashed by a powerful Pokemon long ago and with the darkest secret waiting to be unleashed, how can Ash and his friends protect Hoopa before a massive onslaught bring chaos to the world?

Yes, and onto the onslaught part, numerous legendary Pokemon appeared like an all-star cast greatly blowing away your imagination like wildfire. From Lugia, Latias, Latios, Primal Groudon, Primal Kyogre, the black Mega Rayquaza, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem, they've got it all. They even got the almighty mythical Pokemon Arceus as well. No mucking about!

In true typical Pokemon movie fashion, this movie has a blend of emotions in store for the viewers, even for the whole family. It has the right mix of comedy, suspense, thriller, action, and drama fit for a family movie for families whose kids love watching the Pokemon anime series as well as playing with their games. It's good if you're a kid but if you're a grown-up who loves Pokemon games, sadly, it isn't a great film to take a peek at it, except at the onslaught part with numerous legendary Pokemon clashing each other but if you made it to the heart-stopping climax, emotions will rise but expect a happy ending afterwards. Speaking of which, there's a special surprise waiting in store for the moviegoers before or after watching the film.

Anyway, I'm not going to mention the part where before the Hoopa film comes with the Pikachu short where Pikachu and the gang are performing a musical number for the viewers, but what I will going to mention that those who are going to watch this film will get their very own Hoopa for use in XY and ORAS. All you have to do is to have a copy of Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire and then try accessing the game's Mystery Gift to get your very own Hoopa while enjoying the film. Set at Level 50, Hoopa comes armed with its signature attack "Hyperspace Hole" which can hit even your rival's Pokemon is using Protect or Detect.

Get this, to unleash Hoopa's Unbound form, you need to find the Prison Bottle at a certain location in ORAS. A certain Poke Mart has a man who will tell you a very suspicious tale and then afterwards, he'll receive you the Prison Bottle for you to transform Hoopa from its cute Confined form into the terrifying Unbound form. With Hoopa Unbound, you can unleash its ultra-powerful Hyperspace Fury attack which does massive damage even those who use Protect or Detect. If you got your very own Hoopa after watching this flick, congratulations and good luck raising your newest mythical Pokemon!
