The ocean calmly rises back to its former levels, refilling the canals of the city as all the protective gates finally open. Kabutops and Aerodactyl vanish into sparkles of light and return to the temple floor, and the people of Alto Mare look out their windows as they would on any normal day.
Annie and Oakley squabble inside the control chamber for the machine, stuck. Everything seems to be okay In the morning, Ash and company go out on a boat with Lorenzo and Bianca to look for Latios and Latias.
Eventually, they come upon Latias, who is being carried unconscious by a wild Mantine. They take her into the boat as she regains consciousness and ask her where Latios is, but she only looks sadly up towards the sky. Latios sacrificed his life to save the city and Latias, and nothing will bring him back.
He's not entirely gone, however: Latias's eyes glow, and she sightshares with them, showing them what Latios is now seeing. They see themselves inside a sphere that looks suspiciously like the Soul Dew, ascending ever farther from the Earth. The sphere around them condenses into a small light which then falls into Bianca's hand as the sightshare ends: They head back to the secret garden and place the Soul Dew in the basin where the old one used to be.
As Ash and company leave town, somebody who could be either Bianca or Latias but is probably Latias, judging from her demeanor comes up, hands Ash a drawing and then kisses him, much to the horror of both Brock and Misty. During the end credits, they see two Latios and a Latias flying in the sky, showing there are more of them around.
Annie and Oakley are also rescued from the machine and arrested, and they are seen in prison reading a book about Lawrence III - yup, the guy from the second movie. Never would have thought he'd ever be seen again, huh? The Good Annie and Oakley are pretty good villains. They feel competent at what they do, they're fun to watch, and I like their relationship with one another - it's fun to how Annie cares a great deal more about Oakley than about capturing Latias and Latios and becomes visibly concerned and alarmed when Oakley starts to get reckless and power-hungry.
I also love the setting and the music of this movie which was thankfully kept in the dub. The city of Alto Mare is beautiful, and all in all the movie is aesthetically pleasing.
And I liked how Latias's human form was done a lot - she's always a bit inhuman and just off, without being outright creepy.
It's genuinely sad, particularly because of Latias's reactions, and strikes the right chord without being overdone or cheesy. In general the relationship between the siblings is sweet, and despite being unable to talk, they're strongly emotive and sympathetic and what they're thinking comes across clearly in their scenes, making them work well as characters driving the story.
And the plot and pacing are pretty tight here too; the action starts early and keeps up pretty well throughout, and while the story isn't anything particularly amazing - it's just one of the "villain wants a legendary's power, Ash and company must save the legendary from their grasp" movies - there's nothing egregiously nonsensical.
All in all, it does well at creating emotional stakes and investment and making the viewer care. The Bad A lot of the characters in this movie really don't contribute much.
You might notice that like for the third movieI didn't mention Team Rocket anywhere in the synopsis. They're still in there, but it's even worse than in the third movie: All they do in the whole movie is get a few of their own, separate, non-plot-relevant scenes consisting of them being the universe's buttmonkeys or reacting to things; they could easily be completely cut out and no one could tell anything was missing, and all in all they add nothing to the movie.
The fact they're fans of Annie and Oakley is sort of fun, but we can easily see that they're competent master thieves without Team Rocket's say-so, and since unlike with the Iron-Masked Marauder in the fourth movie we don't actually get to see Team Rocket interact with the pair, that's about all they could theoretically be considered to contribute.
It's not just Team Rocket, however. Brock and Misty are also almost completely extraneous, and their role consists almost entirely of just hanging around with Ash in a few mostly non-plot-relevant scenes: And while Lorenzo the guide at least serves as Mr.
Exposition in several scenes, Bianca also gets strikingly little to do, with her main apparent purpose being to be the basis for Latias's human form and thus fueling the mystery early in the movie before we find out she and Latias are different people.
Now, even Ash doesn't have that much of an impact when you get right down to it: I don't think Ash's relative background role is much of a problem for the movie, however; he isn't really the hero here. By befriending Latias, he has an emotional stake in what's going on, and their relationship strengthens Latias's character; overall this movie actually integrates him better than many of the others. Meanwhile, it really feels like the writers had no idea what to do with Brock and Misty or Team Rocket, and Lorenzo and Bianca ultimately feel like plot devices more than characters.
There is also some noticeable conspicuous CG here; most glaringly, the computer-generated first-person shots of the streets of Alto Mare when Ash and Latias are fleeing through the city really stick out like a sore thumb, and the machine in the temple is also pretty obviously computer-generated and off, though at least that's a machine so it's not supposed to look perfectly natural. There were some little things that bugged me: Brock and Misty magically appearing at the temple at the end even though the gates hadn't been opened yet, the unnecessarily drawn-out scene of Latios and Latias playing with Ash and Pikachu in the garden, the other little illogicalities mentioned here and there in the synopsis.
But none of that is terribly significant or hurts the movie to any serious extent. The dub of this movie, however, makes a number of odd changes that render it a worse film, even leaving aside the general issue of making unnecessary changes in the localization of a movie.

So here are some of the flaws that are added in the dub, but are not present in the Japanese version. First of all, the dub changes the backstory completely, to one that's irrelevant to the actual plot and doesn't make a lot of sense to begin with.
In the dub, the Aerodactyl and Kabutops from the temple belonged to an evil trainer who made them attack people, and then Latios brought water to the city and drowned them. And when this random Aerodactyl and Kabutops are made into the centerpieces of the movie's backstory, their lack of importance to the actual narrative becomes incongruous and puzzling.
When I first saw this movie, as the Icelandic dub based on the English onethis really confused me; I expected them to be the bigger bad once they were resurrected, only for them to be quickly, anticlimactically defeated and forgotten about.

Secondly, the dub leaves us with no good reason why the tidal wave appears, since it leaves out the part of the legend about how using the Soul Dew for evil will destroy both it and the town. In the original film, the machine in the temple is simply a way to direct the power of the Soul Dew, and it is implied that using its power for evil intrinsically corrupts the Soul Dew and causes it to bring calamities.
In the dub, however, the focus is on the machine itself the "Defense Mechanism of Alto Mare" being an amazing weapon that Oakley wants to get her hands on from the beginning, while the Soul Dew is portrayed merely as a prop to power it, which is a strange thematic shift.
However much later, in the episode "Cerulean Blues," the answer to this perplexing question is finally given. The original anime explained that while Misty was in control of a lot of aspects of the Gym, she wasn't the leader yet.
However the English dubbed version that aired in the US and internationally, changed Misty's fate, giving her the much deserved role of Gym Leader. Her smarts and rationality separates her from other characters on the show.
Still, it's important to keep in mind the character's young age. While both cards were a hit with fans, there were some Japanese cards that didn't see the light of day because of them being not kid-friendly in the US. And if you think it's just your shipper heart misleading you, here's something to give you hope: Ash and Misty may be the end game. However, the revenue the series began generating ultimately changed the creators' minds and they held back on releasing the movie which could have possibly explained Misty's fate.
While definitive proof of this has never been obtained, the footage found is enough to make us Ash-Misty shippers very happy.
Despite Misty being one of the best written, most complicated characters on the show, the ten year old girl was introduced by the show runners as eye candy. Hopefully, the writers bring back Misty to the show. The sisters have looked out for each other ever since they decided to become gym leaders which made their parents turn their backs on their children and her three sisters Daisy, Violet and Lily.
