''Heroes'' is the shortest Pokémon film, and just under 20 minutes for ''Camp Pikachu''. In America, it is also the lowest-grossing of all the Pokémon films, and the only one not to make one million dollars at the American box office. This is likely because it was only released in 196 theatres (compared with 3,043 theatres for the first movie, and 2600+ theatres for the second and third movie) and was as much of a disastrous flop as [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Mario_Bros._(film)| Super Mario Bros]. As a result, the films in the Advanced Generation series and beyond were direct-to-D.V.D. in the U.S. and Europe.

Although [[Wikipedia:NBC|NBC]] currently airs the film, it recently aired on [[Wikipedia:CBS|CBS Television]] on November 27, 2007 (because Universal released the film), being the fourth ''[[Pokémon]]'' film to air on CBS (the first three being ''[[Jirachi: Wish Maker]]'', ''[[Pokémon: Destiny Deoxys]]'', and ''[[Pokémon 4Ever]]'').

The Soul Dew is sought by Annie and Oakley, two members of [[Team Rocket]] (in the original dub they worked alone). The Soul Dew controls the Defense Mechanism of Altomare, a special device built in case of disaster. Meanwhile, [[Ash Ketchum]], [[Misty]], and [[Brock]] are visiting Altomare on their travels, as well as Jessie, James, and Meowth. Ash and Misty participate in the Tour de Altomare, a water chariot race. Misty wins, after Ash takes a wrong turn thanks to an invisible Latias and Latios. Ross, the former champion of the race gives the friends a tour of the city in his gondola and tells them of the city's guardians. Annie and Oakley are in the city [[File:AnnieOakley.jpg|thumb|Annie and Oakley's debut]]now and stalk Latias, who has disguised herself as a human girl. Latias is saved by Ash and [[Pikachu]]. [[Team Rocket]] are also in the city and decide to stalk Annie and Oakley.

The trio of heroes later visit the city's museum where they meet Lorenzo, the curator, who explains the city's legendary past and also introduces them to the Defense Mechanism of Altomare (DMA for short). Ash spies a girl, Bianca, who is identical to Latias' disguise. Ash pursues her, and then Latias in disguise, across the city, eventually discovering a beautiful hidden garden where Latias and Latios live. Lorenzo arrives to clear up all the tension between Ash, Bianca and Latios. Latias and Latios play with Ash and Pikachu, and later Lorenzo reveals to Ash the Soul Dew. However, Annie and Oakley's spy robot is watching this and later the two villains steal the Soul Dew and capture Latios. They use both to control the DMA. Latias flees to Ash for help, and later the two and Pikachu race across the gridlocked city to the museum. Oakley goes power hungry and

The heroes arrive at the museum to find the DMA going haywire and Latios badly injured. The Soul Dew turns dark red, due to its power getting drained from the DMA. Annie goes to the Soul Dew to see what has happened, but Lorenzo warns her not to touch it in its current state. Annie ignores him, and the Soul Dew emits black lightning, and the DMA goes out of control. All the water in the city leaves suddenly and returns as a giant tidal wave. Latios and Latias use their psychic powers to destroy the tidal wave, but Latios dies in the process, due to being greatly weakened when he was used to control the Defense Mechanism. The water returns to the city, washing away Team Rocket in the process. The evil Pokémon return to their fossil states, and Annie and Oakley end up trapped inside
