I didn't notice a tint when I watched this film, tho some scenes did look too dark. And I agree that the Secret Garden song was amazing. I still remember trying to figure out the lyrics cuz they were sung in English, but were hard to understand.What was with the bad blue tint in this movie? When I got the home video version like 15 years ago, it pissed me off that the colors looked so dark and gritty. The Secret Garden was such a good insert song though. My fave thus far.
Depends on which version you saw. As far as I know, only the dubbed VHS version had a dark tint added to it. I don't know if the DVD version did, though. The Japanese version had no such tint.I didn't notice a tint when I watched this film, tho some scenes did look too dark.
I saw the VHS version which came with two promo cards hee hee. In fact one of my main reasons for purchasing this film was cuz of the special Latios and Latias cards. I do wonder why the dub added that tint tho. It seems unnecessary. :[Depends on which version you saw. As far as I know, only the dubbed VHS version had a dark tint added to it.

I don't think that it was explained who the two Latios were during that final scene cuz it happened while the film's credits were rolling, although I myself assumed that they were the spirits of Latias' father and brother who were still guarding the city.One thing I don't completely understand though was why Ash saw two Latios and one Latias as he was leaving Alto Mare. I thought that Latios had died?
But Latios was "dead", and I don't think his spirit or soul or whatever was capable of protecting Alto Mare. It's just sort of confusing how his soul was resurrected if it was really him at the end.I myself assumed that they were the spirits of Latias' father and brother who were still guarding the city.
I don't remember this tidbit since I haven't seen this movie in ages. Was this even stated in the movie, or was it said elsewhere? Latias randomly joining the cast would've been awkward after she kissed Ash. :sI've learned that apparently they inteded Latias to stay with Ash for the rest of Johto. I wonder how that would've ended up
Well his spirit may've just been reincarnated or perhaps when we saw him flying with Latias at the end, it might've simply been symbolic to show that the city will always have guardians. I agree that the ending scene was confusing however. ^^;But Latios was "dead", and I don't think his spirit or soul or whatever was capable of protecting Alto Mare.

The Pokemon Water Race definitely seemed underutilized in this movie's plot since we only saw a few minutes of it. I was glad that Kasumi won it, but I would've liked to see more of Rossi, too.3. Anyone else wish the Tour de Alto Mare played a bigger role in the plot? Like, much bigger? Like,” the whole movie could’ve been set against the backdrop of that contest the way Revelation Lugia was set against the backdrop of the festival” bigger? I don’t pretend to know how exactly the plot would work, but it’d be more interesting than the backdrop of “let’s laze around Venice,” however pretty it looks.
To this day, I still wonder why certain viewers thought that Canon was the one who kissed Satoshi. She had barely spoken to Satoshi throughout the whole movie, so it seemed clear that Latias - who had bonded with Satoshi - delivered the kiss.The little shipping moment was nice, I do believe that it was actually Latias who kissed Ash at the end of the film.
The Secret Garden insert song was actually sung in English by a Japanese vocalist named MADOKA. I did hear a subtle European tone in her singing voice when she enunciated certain words, although perhaps that was due to the Europop feel of the song in general.Alto Mare was based on Venice I think, but what stood out to me more was the soundtrack and the Secret Garden song, which sounded French and had a cool rhythm.
