Rekkuu no Houmonsha Deokishisu
("The Sky-Splitting Visitor, Deoxys")

"Pokemon Destiny Deoxys"

Main Film Basic Synopsis

In a large ice field, a scientist named Rondo-Hakase and his son, Toh'i, are leading a group of researchers in an observation of the pokemon living in the area.   Suddenly, a great meteorite falls from space and crashes into the ice field, and the dust from the blast swallows up Rondo-Hakase and his team.  As the dust clears, a shadow of the phantom pokemon Deoxys can be seen.  Then, as Rondo-Hakase looks in the distance, he sees another silouhette, this one belonging to the pokemon Rayquaza!  What is the purpose of their appearances?

<>Four years later, in the high-tech LaRousse City, Satoshi-tachi are spending time in the city's Battle Tower.  Along the way, Satoshi bumps into Toh'i and becomes acquainted with the young boy.  It is revealed that because of the violent battle that occurred four years ago, Toh'i now dislikes pokemon.  Suddenly, the phantom pokemon Deoxys makes a second appearance, as does Rayquaza, and thus their epic battle continues.


Like the fifth Pocket Monsters movie, Yuyama Kunihiko's inspiration for the setting of this movie was inspired by a recent trip.  For this movie, the model for the high-tech LaRousse City came from recent trips to Vancouver, Canada and Las Vegas, California.

This is the first movie not to be accompanied by a Pikachu mini-movie.  Instead, director Yuyama Kunihiko used the extra thirty minutes or so gained by the exclusion of the mini-movie to extend the main feature.  It is assumed that any more movies made in the future won't be packaged with mini-movies.

Between April 17th, 2004 and July 16th, 2004, anyone who buys advanced tickets for the film in Japan will receive special pre-order goodies.  Those who buy a ¥1300 adult ticket, an ¥800 child's ticket, or a ¥2000 parent + child ticket will receive the Aurora Ticket for Pocket Monsters Fire Red and Pocket Monsters Leaf Green.  The ticket can be used in the Kuchiba City Harbor (that would be the Vermillion City Harbor in the American version) to reach the Tanjou no Shima ("The Island of Birth") where players are able to battle with and capture Deoxys.  In addition, those who buy tickets in advance will receive a special "The Sky-Splitting Visitor" poster while supplies last.
