when in the pokémon series do the movies take place?
i'm re-watching pokémon, both the show and the movies, from the beginning to the end, and i would like to have some sort of timeline of the movies/episodes? for example, when should i watch the first movie - between the 1st and 2nd season, or after any episode in particular?

I believe the movies take place between episodes but they're not that important to the events in the regular anime.
Mewtwo Strikes back happens between EP067 and EP068
The Power of One happens between EP105 and EP106
Spell of the Unown happens between Ep155 and Ep156
Celebi: Voice of the Forest happens between EP205 and EP206
Pokemon Heroes happens between EP256 and EP157
Jirachi: Wish Maker happens between AG034 and AG035
Destiny Deoxys happens between AG085 and AG086
Lucario and the Mystery of Mew happens between AG134 and AG135
Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea happens between AG183 and AG184
The Rise of Darkrai happens between DP039 and DP040
Giratina and the Sky Warrior happens between DP086 and DP087
Arceus and the Jewel of Life happens between DP135 and DP136
Zoroark: Master of Illusions happens between DP178 and DP179Source(s): Bulbapedia
I'd say the first movie was after Ash got his eight badges but before he went to the Indigo Plateau. I know people say that the movies aren't part of the actual series but in the episode where Ash battles Team Rocket at the Viridian Gym, it shows Mewtwo breaking out of the laboratory.

It takes place before Ash challenges the Cinnabar Gym.

They made the movie not to follow the series just like other anime movies they only make the movie for intertainment to keep the series more interresting
