Pokémon: The Movie 2000: The Power of One, commonly referred to as Pokémon 2000, originally released in Japan as Pocket Monsters the Movie: Revelation Lugia (劇場版ポケットモンスター 幻のポケモン ルギア爆誕, Gekijōban Poketto Monsutā Maboroshi no Pokemon Rugia Bakutan, lit. "Mirage Pokémon: Lugia's Explosive Birth"), is a 1999 Japanese anime film directed by Kunihiko Yuyama as the second Pokémon feature-length film, complementing the Orange Islands saga of the series and featuring several new Pokémon, including Lugia and Slowking. Brock, who temporarily left during the season on which the film is based, makes a cameo appearance trying to protect the Pokémon in Professor Ivy's lab.
Pokémon: The Movie 2000 has two parts: the feature presentation and a 20-minute short. The film is set during the Orange Islands saga, where Ash, Misty and Tracey enter Shamouti Island. While there, they discover the three legendary Pokémon, Moltres, Zapdos and Articuno. Meanwhile, a collector named Lawrence III attempts to steal the three Pokémon to awaken Lugia, which proves dangerous for the legendary Pokémon, Lugia and Ash himself.
The film was released in Japanese theaters on July 17, 1999. The English version, produced by 4Kids Entertainment and distributed by Warner Bros. in association with Nintendo, was later released in the United States on July 21, 2000. Pokémon: The Movie 2000 earned less at the box office than its predecessor, Pokémon: The First Movie, despite increased promotion and slightly better critical reception.
Sacha, Ondine et Jacky arrivent sur l'île de Shamouti. Les habitants leur parlent d'une légende où trois oiseaux mythiques, Artikodin, Électhor et Sulfura, règnent sur leur île respective. Au même moment Gelardan, un collectionneur Pokémon, capture les oiseaux pour sa collection personnelle et modifie donc le climat naturel de la Terre pour faire apparaître le Gardien des Abysses, Lugia.
