What are critics saying?


Boston Globe by Jay Carr

2000 isn't about nobility and humility; saving the planet from evil collectors is what sells video games.


Variety by Robert Koehler

A much more intense action vehicle for hero Ash Ketchum and his band of pocket monster trainers than its leaden, sometimes claustrophobic predecessor.
