Story

Satoshi and Gou head to the Sinnoh Region -- as part of their jobs as research fellows -- to participate in a festival taking place at the Mio Library. When they get to the festival Satoshi and Gou reunite with Hikari, Pochama, and Shirona. Elsewhere, the remaining members of the Ginga-Dan surreptitiously capture a Headran and put into their motion a secret operation. Using a special plate said to contain part of the power of the mythical Pokémon Arceus, the Ginga-Dan begins an experiment that causes disruptions across the entire Sinnoh Region. The overwhelming power of the plate also happens to transform Headran into a terrifying version of itself! Satoshi, Gou, and the others take notice of these disruptions and, with guidance from the legendary Pokémon Yuxie, Agnome, and Emrit, set out to put things right. Our heroes run into the Ginga-Dan and begin a grand battle to liberate the rampaging Headran. This never-before-seen Headran makes it seem like Satoshi and his friends are done for until the mythical Pokémon Arceus finally makes its descent from above..

Behind the Scenes

According to this tweet from key animator Masaaki Iwane, the Koking salesman cameo in Pocket Monsters "The Arceus Who is Known as a God" Episode 1 wasn't just some Easter egg the animator threw into the background on a whim; the character was already there in Yuuji Asada's storyboards.



He also reveals that he was the one who drew the Koiking salesman in his debut episode, Pocket Monsters (1997) Episode 015 "The Battle of the St. Anne!"

Notes

All four of these episodes premiered exclusively on the Amazon Prime video service in Japan.

Every returning member of the Ginga-Dan (Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter) are voiced by their original voice actors from the Diamond & Pearl TV series.
