The Sky-Rending Visitor, Deoxys

Make yourself at home, by which I mean I'm going to kill you



Current Zar note: I eventually branched out from just doing game screencaps to doing them for Pokemon movies as well cause why not, who's going to stop me. I did this LP (?) in 2012! I left my write-up mostly unchanged.




The Deoxys movie is still full swing into Ruby and Sapphire. It's alright I guess. NOT MY FAVORITE, BUT THERE ARE WORSE MOVIES cough manaphy

It does have one line that I think is particularly interesting that I'll point out when we get to it.

BUT ENOUGH OF THAT, LET'S SEE WHAT ASH AND FRIENDS ARE UP TO NOW!

Let's start with the opening ramble which has now become standard for the movies by this point! In case you walked into the wrong theater or something.

Giant Castform breasts visible anywhere in the world

AS LONG AS YOU SUCKERS KEEP BUYING THEM WE'LL KEEP MAKING THEM, HAHAHAHAHA

COPY PASTE FOR YOUR LIFE MEN!

Parasect yaaaaay parasect yaaaay

ugh suicune

Actually I think this badly CG'd footage is just recycled from the fourth movie even.

REMEMBER THESE MOVIES?

how do you know

and KILL US ALL

It took me way too many watches of this to realize how important those two colors are.

Destiny Deoxys in english I guess? As I've mentioned before I never saw any dubs after the first movie so I have no idea what this movie was like in english. :B

yes yes let me tell you all about being a sealeo, yes

Getting eaten by a polar bear, it's great

There he is, tiny wingheaded boy

Tamazarashi is the Japanese name for Spheal apparently! Spheal's adorable.

|3

OH NO SPHEAL YOU ARE TOO ROUND FOR PETTING

eh who cares let's look at the sky instead

do you like auroras? cause this is the movie for you

vrooom

Hey it's Rayquaza, the licorice snake Pokemon! I mean, the little toy plastic snake with linked joints you get at the fair Pokemon! I mean, the legendary Pokemon who protects the sky or something. Has babies with it. I don't know, Rayquaza's lame.

KABLOOIE

wheeee

NO THEIR BLUBBER'S COMING RIGHT FOR ME

duuuuuhhhhhh huh? whuh?

Deoxys, now with vagina-laser

No Easter egg hunt alive can best me

How do YOU know?

can we go home

A NEW POKEMON? BETTER MURDER IT

nice cg there, pokemon

Rayquaza's a douche, basically

LEGENDARIES WITH RECOVER >:(

CHECK OUT MY SOAP BUBBLE

As usual Pokemon throw around gigantic deadly lasers and explosions while tiny humans run about in terror

Turn on my Plastic Wrap filter here

I'M NOT EVEN AIMING FOR DEOXYS NOW I JUST WANT TO EXPLODE YOUR RESEARCH STATION FOR KICKS

rayquaza's happy to be here

THAT'LL TEACH YOU HUMANS FOR EXISTING IN MY GENERAL VICINITY

what to do here

OOPS

ploonk

SUCK IT HUMANS

I'M HAVING ONE OF YOU FOR LUNCH

There's that territory theme again

YEARS OF WORK AND EFFORT AND RESEARCH ALL DESTROYED IN A MATTER OF MOMENTS FOR NO REAL REASON

THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AND ENDLESS GRANT PROPOSALS DOWN THE DRAIN, LIVES LOST, BUT HEY THAT'S HOW THE WORLD WORKS

TIME TO JUST MOVE ON AND TRY AGAIN BECAUSE WHAT ELSE CAN A HUMAN DO IN THE POKEMON WORLD

LET'S GO TO HAWAII INSTEAD

he'll never see it coming

it's going to look SO COOL you guys!!

super angry, it'll be hilarious

BUT IT DOESN'T WORK OH NOOO

Why not resurrect the strange alien Pokemon that helped destroy my arctic lab

what could go wrong

MEANWHILE

back to our other story

MEANWHILE DEOXYS RISES FROM THE ARCTIC OCEAN AGAIN

shoots an aurora into the air

Dewgoooongs deeeewgooooongs

Implied by the name there

Can I help you Mr Seel

MEANWHILE some random interlude with Plusle and Minun and this trashcan which I mostly cut except for HEY LOOK A POOCHYENA

AND A NEW POKEMON! A Munchlax! From the future Diamond and Pearl games, although they were still a ways off.

Munchlax tries to kick a bottle back into the can but fails.

Ash are you okay

BWAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH

ain't nothin goes on LaRousse don't know about

HOW GOOD'S YOUR CREDIT BY THE WAY? JUST WONDERING!

yeah cause that face would be a lot better

WHAT IS THIS STRANGE MOVING WALKWAY

Don't resist it? That seems pretty straightforward really.

A Blaziken! A blazing chicken.

SPARRING RIVAL, DING DING DING

I'M OVER YOUR PREVIOUS COMMENT

I like how pleased Blaziken is by the comment as well.

Max just wants you to stay on the path, Brock!

A Blastoise you say? I'm interested.

This is sort of an in-joke, let's see... if I remember right, May tends to end practically everything she says in Japanese with "kamo", which is sort of like saying "I dunno" or "maybe". Sort of wishy-washy? That's the impression I got from people who tried to explain it anyway, haha. So this guy sort of turned it back on her with kawaii-kamo, if I remember right.

WHAT DO YOU THINK, ASH

Zangoose is not feeling it today.

THE PROUDEST ESPEON

PEOPLE OF THE FUTURE STILL READ BOOKS???

this piano sounds funny

yesss screencap gold

what is with the face animators in the ruby/sapphire generation, they seem more off than in the earlier movies

OR MY PIKACHU'S GOING TO EAT YOUR FACE

can i put my hands in your sweater, they're cold

JUST WALK THROUGH OUR RINGS OF BLOOD

tooi why are your eyes so creepy

disk read error

Ash is happy to see you, audience!

Ah, back when double battles were brand new exciting things.

THERE ARE NO LAST NAMES IN THE FUTURE

WHY SO JEALOUS, MAX

what is this "privacy"

LaRousse has no need for such an antiquated notion

someone paying attention to me, this can't be happening

WOOPS

I MET HIM FIVE MINUTES AGO BUT I MUST DEFEAT HIM

pokeball explodes in his hand

Hey, a... Torkoal, is that it? I think that's right, haha. I raised one back in Sapphire. IT'S ALL SORT OF VAGUE NOW

lol nice hair

I'LL JUMP RIGHT IN HIS FACE, THAT'LL SAVE ME

oh come on those are soap bubbles

POKEMON CAN'T ACT FOR THEMSELVES IN BATTLES, DON'T YOU KNOW ANYTHING

to be fair that'd be kind of freaky to see coming at you real fast

FLASHBAAAAACK

but Blaziken will protect Blastoise with its MASSIVE CROTCHFLUFF

WHY DOES IT HAVE SO MUCH CROTCH FLUFF

bonk

CLEARLY ASH IS THE ONE SUCKING HERE

Ash's normally supportive demeanor falls for once

NOW WE'RE ON THE ROAD TO VICTORY

reactionshot.gif

hacha cha

haha Ash's face

just like I dreamed

I like the Blastoise trainer guy. :B He's so goofy and cheerful.

awkward silence

leave me alone DAD

UNLESS YOU'RE WAITING ON ME

haha max is slapping brock again that's great

Also these glowing lasers

Plusle and Minun! The Pikachu-esque electrics for the generation.

got to get my camera

THE SOLUTION TO EVERY PROBLEM

EVERY PROBLEM

You don't even have any Pokemon, Max.

IF YOU PLUSLES AND MINUNS WOULD STOP PLAYING WITH THE AUTOMATED TRASH CANS

deeeh

KISS ME

Munchlax cares about beautifying the city

VICTORY

let's go to the triangle

HILARIOUS

barf up another aurora

YOU DIDN'T HEAR MY SECRETS DID YOU

STOP TRYING TO CONNECT WITH ME WHAT IS YOUR DEAL

delicious bratwursts

MEOWTH'S GOT A POINT

cubeforce engage

James since when do you know so much about this city

thanks team rocket i always appreciate your interludes

IF ONLY YOU HAD MORE SCREENTIME

BE MY FRIEND YOU STUPID JERK

I cut this but a bunch of Wingulls startled Tooi and knocked him on dooownnn

STOP TOUCHING ME WEIRDO

GOING TO KNOCK OUT ALL YOUR TEETH BUDDY

YOU AND YOUR WINGHAIR AIN'T FLYIN NOWHERE NO MORE

man and Ash threatened that Yuki kid in the Celebi movie too, didn't he

Brock just got back from working out, what's going on

Brock: :|

LET'S MAKE HIM INTO FONDUE

Man Gourmet Gaming should do a recipe for Brock's soup

I would eat the heck out of that

can't say it's weird in front of them, that crazy ash kid might try to punch me again

oh man it's the brock guy again HEY EVERYBODY IT'S THAT BROCK HUMAN

FREE LUNCH TIME

PET WILD ANIMALS

WHAT COULD GO WRONG

OH THE DUKE WOULD NOT APPROVE

gotta go put up flyers for my band bye

no that worked perfectly

MEANWHILE

as implied by the name

EATING EVERYTHING??

well bye

meanwhile deoxys wants to murder your entire family

but first barfs up another aurora

HE SEEMS LIKE A NICE GUY MAY, WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM

BrockCam

LET ME TAKE MY CLOTHES OFF FIRST

MAX WE'RE NOT EVEN MARRIED YET

>:(

BUT COOKIES WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM!

Time for the obligatory release all the pokemon so they can frolic together scene

EVERY MOVIE HAS ONE OF THESE

Ash's Pokemon have maybe evolved? They really did like nothing in the last movie, I can't remember

The twins have GIANT WATERBUGS surskit and masquerain, i think that's what they're called

PUSH ALL THESE POKEBALLS AWAY

May's Ch... frick what was the name of the first form? Her... Torchic, that's it. Anyway it evolved into Combusken in the meantime. Also she has other Pokemon but who cares

Brock's Lotad evolved! And is still as off as ever.

So this movie doesn't have an opening either! Which is weird, and in fact it only has one song, which is Yume Miru no Lovely Boy. To be fair though Lovely Boy is super cute and sugary and adorable so I can't complain too much about that.

THIS FRAME LOOKS TERRIBLE but I actually made a gif of it a while back, let's see if I can find it

so cute

Blaziken is practically a person, it's sort of weird

Other way Lombre honey

stupid computer >:(

POKE JUMPROPE

slushies for everyone! maybe

team rocket is seriously more motivated by eating than anything else

WHAT WILL COME OF THIS INTERLUDE??

dewgoonngs awwww

ooooh nooooo

thanks deoxys you're a pal

I MADE A GIF OF THIS TOO

god i love commas

given that pretty much everyone in the entire world trains or owns Pokemon that'd be pretty hard

TOUCH MY PIKACHU

CORPHISH YOU SCAMP

oh i have the vapors, hold me

WHAT'S HIS DEAL

anyway let's cut to the next day where tooi invites all his new friends to his greenhouse pyramid to meet his other floating cg friend

ODDS SEEM GOOD, THERE ARE POKEMON MADE OF TRASH AND ICE CREAM AND GARBAGE AND PROGRAMMING AND POSSIBLY POKEBALLS THEMSELVES AFTER ALL

BUT WE JUST HAD A FROLICKING SCENE

i made my pokeball out of jello

CLIMB INTO MY MOUTH, LITTLE BOY

i just like this guy, don't mind me

DOES RAYQUAZA REALLY NEED A REASON TO TRASH CITIES? EVIDENCE SEEMS TO SUGGEST NO

ENHANCE

expertly done

buuh?

blaaar

Man every city in the Pokemon world must have evacuation drills like this set aside YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN LEGENDARY POKEMON MIGHT GET ANGRY AND DESTROY EVERYTHING

a state of cubes is in effect

that guy in the boa must be a reference or something but i have no idea who they could be

IT'S THE COPS

YOU NEVER SAW ME, GOT IT??

oontz oontz oontz

meanwhile Tooidad tries to cross the walkways BUT THEY COME BACK ON!!

woops!

Deoxys sees that you are trying to escape! Deoxys will have none of that.

there are fanfics written about this out there, i'm sure of it

YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW

deoxys could you

put a bag over your head or something

I like picturing Rayquaza ramming face first into a barrier. It's very satisfying.

man blastoise are super strong WOULD IT BE THAT HARD?

these are just because i like blastoise

WANNA DO SOME STRETCHES WITH ME GUYS

i don't remember reading that in the pokedex

OH NO MAY IS IN DANGER

BUT THERE ARE TOO MANY SHADOW DEOXYS TO FIGHT

TELL MAY I LOVE HERRRRR

OW I JUST WANTED TO USE THE PHONE

tooi please stop seeing into the thirty-seventh dead dimension

Metagross felt tired of walking

I just like that they worked out a lookout system and all

PLANNING

GOTTA JUMP OFF THIS BANISTER

AAGH

GIVE ME YOUR SKIN

walk it off ash

as stated, the exit was right above them

MEANWHILE, PLUSLE AND MINUN

nooo not the seeeel

did a real good job of getting your son there

NOW WE'RE TALKING

This is what interests me here. Deoxys's weird barrier thing shuts off all electricity under it so I'm guessing it's some sort of EMP thing, which is why the Pokeballs don't work. But it's interesting to me that they require that electric interface TO work to begin with. I mean, what happens to the Pokemon that are IN pokeballs when this happens? Do they break out? Do they stay stuck inside? What form are they inside, anyway? How does the ball stay shut? That electrical aspect is apparently needed to revert them to that energy form and pull them inside (although later movies would elaborate on that kind of thing in a way), how does that apply to say, Yuki's wind-up Pokeball from the past in the Celebi movie?

THESE LINES RAISE A LOT OF INTERESTING QUESTIONS TO ME

everything new that we don't understand is a pokemon

TERRITORY TERRITORY TERRITORY

how convenient

THAT'S ALL THE EXPLANATION YOU GET FOR THOSE THINGS BY THE WAY

I wonder if Max is happy to have kids his own age to talk to for once

then there was SCARY VENT RATTLING but it was only plusle and minun

And Munchlax!

haha munchlax's face

i love how clean those little sandwiches are, like little cucumber sandwiches

brock carefully and delicately cutting off the crusts

Brock says wistfully

I KEPT IT WARM UNDER ALL THIS HAIR

YOUR LOSS

sort of weird to see Plusle and Minun on all fours

GROUND CONTROL TO MAJOR TOM

WHO CAN PREDICT ANYTHING IN THE POKEMON WORLD

IT IS A RANDOM AND DANGEROUS PLACE

Play the hotdog slot machine!

oh I'LL fix it

do you want me to get you even more hot dogs

YOU KIDS STEALIN MY HOT DOGS???

just thought we'd drop by

deoxys tries to make off with plusle BUT ASH WON'T HAVE IT

ME TOO ME TOO says brock

Brock lands on his feet like a boss while Deoxys wants a dance with Tooi

MAYBE I'LL JUST TAKE THIS MINUN INSTEAD

all these hot dogs are mine

MAN AND ASH AND THE OTHERS DIDN'T EVEN GET TO KEEP ALL THEIR HOT DOGS i was irrationally bugged by this

a brief detour into bioshock

I DIDN'T WANT YOU TO TOUCH ME ANYWAY

why doesn't that guy just rub his hands all over every pokemon he sees whether they want him to or not

i just don't get him

SquareCo

I AM KING OF THE EPCOT CENTER

Clambake

overcome with despair, the hot dog machine breathes its last

INTO THE RIVER WITH YOU

you know you guys can lie down to sleep

guys

I just realized they set this up for an important revelation and then never do anything with it. I assume the Deoxys picked it up since it saw its electrical signature with it's TerribleFilterVision and then dropped it when it turned off but whatever either way it's not important.

Surskit senses something! It runs around incredibly fast but I didn't catch any of that sadly.

TENTACLES

LET'S JUST PACK UP ALL OUR HOTDOGS FIRST

THEY SHOULD BE RIGHT... OVER THERE...

Deoxys infestation, those are nasty

PEEKABOOOOO

anyway they get away in time and the Deoxys leave since they can't find them yadayada lab

what really

the first time i was watching this i was kind of confused about this

WHY? WHO KNOWS

gasp

or a cg Sim plumbbob, whatever

uh okay

really

not that that'll stop Deoxys from blowing things up when it feels like it

AND WHO WOULDN'T TRUST A FACE LIKE THAT

BADLY CG ANIMATED RAYQUAZA OFF THE PORT BOW

Or they'll team up together and kill us all! But that's probably unlikely

TEAMWORK ADVENTURE GO

may a stopped escalator is just stairs

haha you think that makes a difference, that's adorable

Reflect and a brief softshoe by Metagross

I'M GLAD WE'RE COOL NOW

determination pays off

NOW THE FIREWORKS CAN REALLY START

are you sure

well you're the boss i guess

WAIT THIS WAS A BAD IDEA

meanwhile a million deoxys attach themselves to rayquaza in a really awkward and kind of hilarious cg sequence

HIGH DETAIL

dang I actually can't remember the exact circumstances but Munchlax got separated from them for some reason

BUT I NEVER TOLD MUNCHLAX I LOVED HIM

meanwhile in the epcot center

what is going on with james' face

deoxys squad 2, commence bombing run

charging things just makes me so happy

BROS

meanwhile, brock plays in a windmill

metagross wants some sugar baby

So Audrey, Catherine, and... Ryu.

Before I sock all of you!

PULL ROPE TO SPIN WINDMILL

The flying types would be my first thought

Blaziken just leaps up from one blade to another, which doesn't seem terribly effective to me but hey whatever

PSYCHIC POWER

and Team Rocket rigs up a powercycle

pyew

HOW CONVENIENT YOU ALL HAPPENED TO BE HERE

you're all in trouble now

TIME TO DIE

deeeeehhh

nah, i think i'll kill everyone in this room instead

Actually no Deoxys instead floats em on out using his psychic powers, making this ANOTHER movie where Ash gets to fly around

deoxys can't believe this s---

then i cut a bunch of stuff yada yada BASICALLY the two deoxys meet up again

my aurora is very big

yes, but so is mine!

oh dang i didn't mention this before, but if you don't know much about Deoxys, it can change its form depending on what game it's in, like Fire Red Deoxys was in its Attack form (the pointy version i think), and Leaf Green was in its defense form (the big round ugly version), and I think Ruby/Sapphire just had it in a normal form, and then later Emerald had a Speed form but that one doesn't show up in the movie since it didn't exist yet. But if you were wondering why Deoxys kept changing shape well there you go.

spraying auroras everywhere

WOOOOOOOOO HI TOOI OOOOOOOWW

Rayquaza decides that it still hates Deoxys and must DESTROY EVERYTHING

I'LL TAKE DOWN THIS WHOLE CITY AND THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO STOP ME

OOPS

well bye

WHEEEEEEE

haha woooooo

No not the plot device generator!

uh oh, red

red's an evil color

NO ALL MY HOTDOGS

what does this remind me of, hmm

rayquaza wondering if the defense form deoxys are protecting it or thinking about killing everyone it ever sees? WHO CAN TELL BECAUSE IT HAS CREEPY PINPOINT EYES JUST LIKE EVERY LEGENDARY DOES LATELY, WHY DO THEY KEEP DOING THAT

YOU THINK??

block robots have had enough of that

man how many of these blocks ARE there

I AM the main character after all!

LET'S RIDE THE HOT DOG MACHINE THERE

nom nom

oooh noooo

DUN DUN DUNNNN

a hint of the upcoming evolutions for previously unevolved Pokemon that would come in Diamond/Pearl

Snorlax don't care

BYE

they're just blocks, it'll be fine

YOU LIKE TETRIS ASH

I HOPE SO

not exactly ramming facefirst into the enemy, but close

Butterfingers!

Good arm, Tooi

OOPS

This is sort of unclear but Pikachu flicks it back up to Ash using its tail

HELP ALL THE BLOCKS ARE TOUCHING ME AND IT FEELS WEIRD

nom nom

gotta have big dramatic buttons

HOW MANY BLOCK ROBOTS ARE THERE

RACE YOU TO THE BOTTOM

WHEEEEEEEEE

dude we didn't ask you to come

look at deoxys' face, how are we supposed to feel relieved about this

i feel like deoxys is about to stick a sharpened screwdriver in my back

pikachu IS bitesized

HURRAY WE'RE ALL FRIENDS NOW THE BLOCK ROBOTS HAVE TAUGHT US A VALUABLE LESSON

Snorlax is fine, as I'm sure you were wondering

I DID MOST OF IT

my god they're hideous

deeeeeh

lol shota's face

NOW ALL OF YOU WILL DIE

GET IT

more auroras splayed across the screen

THE END?? They don't even have a separate ending theme, it just reprises Lovely Boy again. LAZYYY

Rayquaza can go into space I guess

BYE TOOI, MAYBE GET THOSE SOULLESS EYES LOOKED AT

i love how happy he looks back there

BYE TWINS AND FRIENDLY RIVAL

HIT BY TOXIC

May actually indulging him for once

A little hard to see here but Shota is sadfacing a bit at saying bye, haha

YOU WERE THE BEST CHARACTER

the face of despair

brock having a mental breakdown

And the traditional walking off into the sunset shot!

BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE???

For some reason it reprises Lovely Boy AGAIN except with everyone with pompoms? Haha the Mudkip's pompom is on its tail

also lol the metagross

SASSY HIPBUMP

blastoiiiise

Added bonus! From this movie on I think they show winners from what I think was a coloring contest, where they handed out blank scenes and let kids color them? That's what I gather from it anyway.

haha i love little kid drawings of pokemon

OH they play an ending song from the show here, Ippai Summer, which is pretty cheery and energetic. WHY NOT USE IT IN THE MOVIE ITSELF? Who knows.

ASH IS HAPPY TO BE HERE

to be fair a snorlax goalie would be a pretty good idea

AND THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO IT! Next up, the Lucario movie!

Wishing Star of the Seven Nights, Jirachi | Mew and the Hero of the Wave, Lucario | Index
