A triple bill of animated movies. 'Pokémon - The First Movie' is set in modern-day Japan. Pokémon trainer Ash and his pet monster Pikachu set off for a championship contest on New Island, hoping to qualify for a bout with the world's greatest Pokémon master. However, the tournament is in fact a fake, set up by Mewtwo, an evil and powerful Pokémon clone, who intends to use his psychic abilities to turn all the Pokémon in the world against their masters. In 'Pokémon - The Movie 2000' unscrupulous collector Lawrence III is determined to add Moltres, Zapdos and Articuno - the three largest Pokémon - to his hoard, and in so doing calls upon the legendary undersea creature Lugia. The abduction of Moltres has a devastating affect on Earth's weather systems, with the result that Ash and his friends find themselves stranded on Shamouti Island after a typhoon. There Ash is claimed by the natives as 'The Chosen One' - a being who can restore order by uniting three spheres in the local temple. With the aid of his Pokémon and rival trainers Team Rocket, Ash sets about foiling Lawrence III's evil scheme. Whilst in 'Pokémon - The Movie 3' archeologist Professor Hale is hard at work studying ancient Pokémon when he stumbles across a strange unknown strain of pocket monsters which have the ability to give life to people's fantasies. Prof. Hale's daughter Molly then gets hold of these pocket monsters, but they unleash terrible creatures from her imagination, creatures which kidnap Molly's mother and visit havoc upon the surrounding area. The only man who can restore the situation is Ash Ketchum, and it's not long before he leaps into action, ready to recapture the beasts and teach Molly about the dangers of pocket monsters.
