The 10th Pokemon movie that will be hitting the theaters in Japan very soon (14th July 2007, to be exact). It would be based on the 10th season (coincidence?) of the series – Diamond and Pearl.
The movie is pretty much self-explanatory. The main event would be the 3-way showdown between the God (or Titan) of Time, Dialga; of Space, Palkia; and Darkrai, the mysterious Pokemon that holds the key to the movie itself.
Both Dialga and Palkia are the iconic Legendary for the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl games. These two are unique Pokemon that were created by the Original One, Arceus.
It is then the two masters of time and space created the world. Together with Darkrai, these 3 are part of the 4th generation of legendary Pokemon.
Legend has it that Arceus created two creatures after its birth and from these two, Time and Space were born. After which, Arceus created another three from where Knowledge, Emotion and Willpower was born.
According to “The Original Story”, a book that can be found on the top floor of the Canalave Library (Diamond and Pearl game) –
“In the beginning, there was only a churning turmoil of chaos. At the heart of chaos, where all things became one, appeared an Egg. Having tumbled from the vortex, the Egg gave rise to the Original One. From itself, two beings the Original One did make. Time started to spin. Space began to expand. From itself again, three living things the Original One did make. The two beings wished, and from them, matter came to be. The three living things wished, and from them, spirit came to be. The world created, the Original One took to unyielding sleep…”
Dialga and Palkia are two Pokemon that should not and must never meet, else the world will be pulled into destruction (again). Ash/Satoshi and co.’s job is as usual, to try and save the day by calming down Dialga and Palkia before the whole world is thrown into chaos. It is unknown what role Darkrai will play, but it is certain that Darkrai holds the answer to the fighting rulers of Time and Space.
The plot here somehow reminds me of the 2nd movie, where the three legendary birds were rustled and began to wage war against each other, threatening to drag the world into certain doom and “the world turns to Ash”, who, with the help of the guardian of the sea, Lugia, managed to stop the fighting and restore peace and balance once more.
I’m actually quite looking forward to this movie being released, although it would probably still be a while before anyone will be able to see it outside of Japan. I’ve heard rumors that many of Ash’s old Pokemon and friends would make an appearance, including his Charizard and Misty. How true this is, I don’t really know, but it’s enough to spark quite a bit of interest in me.
