Victini is the only movie that's not canon.

The others don't have official spots between specific episodes. They could fit anywhere where the group has the pokemon shown in the movie and there's a sufficient time gap.

Mewtwo Strikes back takes place after Showdown at the Poke-Corral and before All Fired Up.

The Power of One takes place after The Mystery Menace or Bound for Trouble and before Charizard Chills since here Charizard is still disobedient.

Spell of the Unown takes place after Forest Grumps and before The Psychic Sidekicks, in the USA it aired BEFORE these episodes spoiling Ash getting Noctowl.

Celebs Voice of the Forest takes place after The Kecleon Caper and before The Joy of Water Pokemon. In America this movie premiered while Ash and his friends were still on the Whirl Islands, which would be impossible to place around this time.

Pokemon Heroes takes place after Just Add Water and before Lapras of Luxury. In English it aired just before Ash reaches Blackthorn City, which is impossible as the anime places Alto Mare as just south of Azalea Town, only the latter fits since Ash was on his way to New Bark Town to meet with Professor Elm, so they could make a side trip here on the way.

Jirachi Wishmaker takes place after Having a Wailord of a Time and before Win, Lose or Drew. In America it was released after Win, Lose or Drew and the Spheal of Approval (since they both premiered on the same day and before Jump for Joy and A Different Kind of Misty (which again, both premiered on the same day) interestingly the English placement puts it right after Team Magma raid the ocean museum in Slateport City.

I'll post the other placements later, I'm getting a bit tired.

Giratina and the Sky Warrior takes place after Arriving in Style and before Sitting Psyduck.

Arceus and the Jewel of Life takes place after Beating the Bustle and Hustle and before Gateway to
Ruin.

Zoroark and the Master of Illusions when it premiered couldn't possibly take place between the two episodes Japanese or English, as their either during the Lily of the Valley conference or after Ash leaves Sinnoh. So I dunno where to place this episode

Kyurem vs the Sword of Jistice can't take place between either the Japanese episodes that aired before or after it or the English, Japanese: they're still traveling with Cynthia and she's nowhere to be seen, nor is Meloetta. English: they're fighting in the Pokemon World Tournament Junior Cup. I dunno where to place this one either

Genesect and the Legend Awakened takes place after Capacia Island UFO and before The Journalist from Another Region. It probably takes place while they're traveling the Declore Archipelago as Ash has Charizard with him, though there's no evidence to suggest that New Tork City is part of an island.

Destiny Deoxys takes place after Sky High Gym Battle and before Candid Camerupt, a promotional Map places Larousse City near Lilycove City, Larousse has also been stated as the hometown of May's rival Drew, making the movie canon, plus in a Ranger Special Solana mentions Professor Lund's research on the Deoxys in Larousse City. In America it premiered after Disguise Da Limit and before Take the Lombre Home, it can't possibly take place hear not only because they are nowhere near Liliycove City but because the movie spoils these Pokémon for airing so early:

Ash: Ash's Treecko and Tailow evolving into Grovyle and Swellow

May: capturing Bulbasaur and her Torchic evolving into Combusken

Brock: Lotad evolving into Lombre

Lucario and the Mystery of Mew takes place after A Real Cleffa Hanger and before Numero Uno Articuno, a promotional map places Rota in a range north of Pewter City and Mount Moon just before reaching Cerulean City and the Battle Factory so it fits here. Later on in Battle Dimension Aura is officially mentioned making this movie officially canon.

Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea takes place after Aipom and Circumstance and before Strategy Tomorrow - Comedy Tonight , it fits here as Ash is shown with Aipom in the movie.

The Rise of Darkrai takes place after Steamboat Willies and before Top Down Training, the movie is officially made canon in Sleepless in Pre-Battle because Dawn still has the Lunar Wing charm from the festival. according to a promotional map Alamos Town is located northeast of Oreburgh City and northeast of Jubilife City near the Ravaged Path.

Edit: I accidentally deleted the post containing this.

The Power Of One took place after Charizard Chills and Charizard was shown obeying Ash. Ash sent Charizard out to help free Moltres and it listened after Ash told him to use flamethrower and also used Charizard to pull the sled on the way to the island. Also when all of Ash's Pokemon came out and was supporting Ash, Charizard was also there supporting him. So it shows that Charizard was obedient in that movie.

You're point, they aired other movies out of order like movie 3 aired before Ash captured Totodile and Noctowl and Destiny Deoxys did a lot of spoiling as well. Ash's Charizard obeyed him in the 2nd movie and Charizard Chills was the episode it started obeying Ash so it takes place after Charizard Chills.

We had this discussion already. When the movie aired has NOTHING to do with when it takes place. Star Wars 1-3 don't take place after 4-6. Fate/Zero doesn't take place after Fate/stay night. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya season 2 does not take place after season 1.

What is your problem?
