    So i started a complete unrelated thread and somehow it ended up being a debate on what movies where canon so I made a hole new thread to discuses it.

    What movie do you think can be canon with the anime.
    Movie 1 and 2 are talked or foreshadowed about in the anime and rumor has it that 16 will be a part of the anime so that just leaves the rest.

    All of them, but if you want the ones with solid confirmation:

    Movie 1 - Ties in with the anime.
    Movie 2 - James mentions Lugia.
    Movie 7 - Professors Research in this movie is mentioned in the Deoxy special.
    Movie 10, 11, 12 - Dawn owns the Lunar Wing in the Cresselia/Darkrai episode which she bought in Movie 10 thus making all three movies confirmed.

    I also have this strong hunch that that Genesect movie will end up being canon too. :p

    this. if some are then stands to reason all are.

    Only one I'm not sure about is M14 as there are 2 versions

    I think this was actually intended to be non-canon (the first Pokemon movie to be so) mainly because this is the only movie where having Zekrom and Reshiram in them completely messes up the anime story.

    I'm not sure, but I personally choose to believe this.

    All of them are canon.

    Reshiram was in M14 despite Episode N contradicting it because *mumblemumble*.

    I think that movie(s) 14 is definitely not canon simply because there are two versions. Plus, I doubt there exist multiple Reshiram and Zekrom. N has a connection to Reshiram in anime and Ash is implied to have a connection to Zekrom in anime. So yeah.

    Movie 2 - James mentioning Lugia doesn't mean much unless he had mentioned which Lugia he is talking about.
    Movie 7 - Not sure about that. No direct mention whatsoever.
    Movie 10, 11, 12 - She didn't mentioned where she got that. Just because you have Pokeball doesn't mean you visited Pokemart.

    I think only first and upcoming movie are canonical. There is more proof of movies not being cannon than movies being cannon.

    Exactly what i'm trying to say. Also, in Movie 14 it's told that Zekrom/Reshiram had to be awakened after being in war years ago.

    Maybe N got his hands on one of them after the movie?
  14. Haunter ゴースト

    James mentions the one from the Orange Islands specifically.

    It wasn't a direct mention, but it was a notebook/computer with the events of Movie 7 in it.

    Correct, but i think it's very ridiculous to think otherwise.

    Fair enough that's you're opinion.

    Nah, cause Zekrom appeared in BW001 and N probably saw Reshiram long before Movie 14.

    Does movie 1 count? He never talked about it in the series, just in the films and specials Movie 8 and Mewtwo special.

    Movie 8 for sure, they did a whole arc almost about what happened with that film in the D/P series with the Hunter J episodes.

    I think the D/P movies and this new up coming flick sounds like it will.

    There were scenes in the anime that makes the 1st movie canon

    Other than the films and specials, can you tell me what episodes? I don't remember this.
  18. Pokegirl Fan~

    Well 1 I can actually remember was from the episode the Battle of the Badge where Gary battles Giovanni in the Viridian Gym. The other scenes happened around that episode too.

    Joltik-Kid What am I doing ಠ_ಠ

    Correction on movie 2 (it was dub only to my knowledge)

    Why does everyone forget Pokemon Heroes (Movie 5). That was the only time Ash ever saw a Latios and during the Sinnoh league match against Tobias, he knew it immediately without dexing it

    Wasn't that before the events that happened in the film? I guess that counts.
