Ash and his friends have discovered that they’re walking toward the ancient Alamos Town after befriending a girl named Alice. Once they’ve arrived, they find out that the sacred garden of Alamos town has been ransacked, the mysterious Darkrai appears, appearantly not pleased and tells Ash and everyone else to leave immediately. Strange things have been happening as well…

What I liked about this manga:

Practically everything. The best parts were Brock (he’s so loveable) and the Palkia, Dialga and Darkrai battle scenes. Being that I’m a great Pokemon fan, that adds to the liking of this manga.

What I did not like about this manga:

Almost nothing. The great graphics and how it’s extremely alike to the movie makes it hard not to like the manga.  Although, the character’s scripts make it really obvious to what just happened. It makes me want to say “Dur da durrr.”

Nope, not even a script change. Baron Alberto is quite annoying, however.
