Main Film Basic Synopsis

Satoshi, a boy who aims to be the world's best Pokemon Master, his partner Pikachu, and his traveling companions Hikari and Takeshi.  Since today is the "Pokemon Star Festival" various pokemon have gathered around, one after the other, and so Satoshi and his friends decide to join in!!  The shady hosts of the festival are getting everyone fired up, but it seems like our heroes have seen them before?  As everyone is enjoying events like the Pokemon Quiz and nighttime star gazing, the pokemon start to disappear one by one.  Even Satoshi's Pikachu goes missing!  Can Satoshi and Pikachu make it out of there safely!?


This is an original animated story created specifically for the Konica Minolta planetariums.  The show is projected on the planetarium's dome-like ceiling and makes full use of the space provided to surround the audience with images and sound.

The show is around 22 minutes long.  It includes 112 slides, some of which includes small bits of animation.

This is the first planetarium special to include Satoshi's traveling companions.
