Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Its save-the-planet message clashes with its crass marketing."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"The animation and game phenomenon that peaked about three years ago is actually dying a slow death, if the poor quality of Pokemon 4 Ever is any indication."
‑ Daphne Gordon, Toronto Star
"The fourth "Pokemon" is a diverting--if predictable--adventure suitable for a matinee, with a message that cautions children about disturbing the world's delicate ecological balance."
‑ Bryan Reesman, Citysearch
"It's hard to imagine that even very small children will be impressed by this tired retread."
‑ Joe Leydon, San Francisco Examiner
"The threat implied in the title Pokémon 4ever is terrifying - like locusts in a horde these things will keep coming."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"A rote exercise in both animation and storytelling."
‑ Megan Turner, New York Post
"4Ever has the same sledgehammer appeal as Pokemon videos, but it breathes more on the big screen and induces headaches more slowly."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"The fourth in a series that I'll bet most parents had thought --hoped! -- was a fad that had long since vanished."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"Your children will be occupied for 72 minutes."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"77 minutes of Pokemon may not last 4ever, it just seems like it does. My only wish is that Celebi could take me back to a time before I saw this movie and I could just skip it."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone, TheMovieChicks.com
"An improvement on the feeble examples of big-screen Poke-mania that have preceded it."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"Serious Pokemon fans will like it."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"This is rote drivel aimed at Mom and Dad's wallet."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"Without a fresh infusion of creativity, 4Ever is neither a promise nor a threat so much as wishful thinking."
‑ Christine James, Boxoffice Magazine
