Master of Unpopular Opinions

I noticed there wasn't any thread for discussing what Pokémon movies people liked the least, so I decided to make my own. Here are my bottom 4:
- Zoroark: Master of Illusions: Zorua does nothing but talk about his "meema" (words can't express how much I hate that word) and "being/becoming strong" while being disgustingly pseudocute and Kodai is such a generic, one-note villain that I couldn't bring myself to feel either way about him and his actions.
- Giratina and the Sky Warrior: I don't hate it AS much as M13, but it was still pretty bad IMO, mostly due to Shaymin ("Gratitude Pokémon" my ass...).
- Kyurem Vs. the Sword of Justice: FELT MORE LIKE A MULTI-EPISODE ARC THAN A MOVIE. KELDEO LEARNED NOTHING, LOST TWICE, AND YET THE SWORDS STILL LET HIM IN. WHATEVER THAT STUPID SPINNING BIRD KICK THING KELDEO DID IN HIS FIRST FIGHT WITH KYUREM WAS. "BOX LUNCH CONNOISSEUR." VIC "YOU DIDN'T BUY MY CHRISTIAN MUSIC CDS BECAUSE YOU'RE JEWISH, SO I'M GOING TO MAKE A COMMENT ABOUT 'FIXING' YOUR JUDAISM" MIGNOGNA DOING AN ANNOYING, WHINY VOICE FOR KELDEO. IRIS OF ALL PEOPLE PILOTING A BLIMP TAKEN FROM A MUSEUM AND NOT FAILING MISERABLY. "SWORD" NO LONGER SOUNDED LIKE A WORD BY THE TIME THE MOVIE WAS OVER. WORST. POKÉMON. MOVIE. EVER. END. OF. STORY.
- Genesect and the Legend Awakened: I'm a big fan of sci-fi themed Pokémon, so this movie should be right up my alley, right? Wrong. I don't mind the fact that this movie's Mewtwo is different, but what they did to Genesect is just... no. You wouldn't think a movie where a psychic mutant supersoldier and an army of prehistoric cyborg insects that can shoot elemental lasers fight each other in a big city would be anything but a dumb, fun 90-minute smashfest, but it somehow ended up EVEN MORE SACCHARINE IN PARTS THAN THE ZORUA MOVIE! HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?! I feel like this movie should have been a lot more like Short Circuit: something about a robot learning to be itself while still kicking major ass. And the voices were just terrible, especially considering we figured out the perfect voice for these guys a long time ago.
