This year marks the {{bp|M15|fifteenth}} Pocket Monsters film. Being around for a decade and a half is certainly an achievement that few other series can boast, but is that something that actually works in its favor? Is this franchise still able to produce entertaining films that aren't rehashes of a previous movie? Or is this movie series just going through the motions at this point?
''Kyurem VS the Sacred Swordsman: Keldeo'' is, as you can imagine, about the battle between {{p|Kyurem}} and {{p|Keldeo}}. Keldeo is currently training with the three Sacred Swordsmen – {{p|Terrakion}}, {{p|Virizion}}, and {{p|Cobalion}} – to become a Sacred Swordsman itself. In order to do this, Keldeo has to be able to summon a sword-like beam of light from its forehead known as the “sacred sword” and then defeat the legendary Pokémon Kyurem in battle. Keldeo is too impatient to finish its training and runs off to some abandoned mines to fight Kyurem, but it ends up being no match for the legendary {{type2type|Dragon}}. Keldeo runs away after Kyurem encases the other three Swordsmen in ice, leaving their battle undecided.
Keldeo eventually bumps into {{bp|Ash}} and {{bp|Ash's friends|his friends}} and convinces them to help it free the other Swordsmen. As they try to return to the mines, Kyurem, who's still pretty angry that its battle with Keldeo was left undecided, starts attacking our heroes. {{an|Iris}} and {{an|Cilan}} distract their pursuers while Ash and Keldeo escape the city and return to Kyurem's lair. At the end of the movie, the battle between Kyurem and Keldeo is finally settled.
