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 DP179

    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

      False. The movie is canon to the series as Mewtwo is seen busting out of Team Rocket Headquarters and fighting Gary in the series
