Japanese Mini-Movie AG 01: "Odoru Pokemon Himitsu Kichi"
American Mini-Movie 06: "Gotta Dance"
Japanese Air Date: July 19th, 2003
American Air Date: June 1st, 2004
Pikachu and the others are playing one day when they come across a Secret Base. The base belongs to the Rocket-Dan, and Nyasu has been left in charge of guarding it while Musashi and Kojirou make the final preparations necessary to show it off to the Boss. Nyasu has captured three Gyonyonyo and placed them in a cage, but Pikachu and the others are able to free them. Nyasu is angry and chases after the pokemon to the outside, where Nyasu's special Dance Ball is activated. This special baton is capable of making everyone around it break into a dance, and this dancing causes everyone to flee back into the base. Inside, Pikachu and the others destroy all the party invitations, and before too long the entire base is destroyed. Pikachu and the others are able to escape to safety as they bid the Gyonyonyo farewell.
But if you're
going to leave, it's best to leave with a bang. And that's what
this short does, in my opinion--it ends the mini-movie series with the
best entry yet.
Everything about this short is very done well...the animation,
music, the humor, everything. I really can't complain about this
Even the dubbing
is spectacular. While there is an odd change made, it doesn't
damage the short as a whole. The dubbed version keeps the
Japanese music and the widescreen presentation, and they even dub an
English version of the opening theme. When all is said and done,
the English version is just as enjoyable as the Japanese version, which
is a rarity for any 4Kids dub. Good job,
