I can't back this up with hard facts, but wasn't the American version of 
the Pokemon movie dubbed into English, meaning that it can't be considered 
as a foreign language film?  I can't imagine that they subtitled it, 
judging by the age of the target demographic.  I'm happy to be shot down by 
someone more knowledgeable on the subject.
