Pokemon Journeys’ two-part winter particular is airing in Japan subsequent week, and a latest trailer revealed that Ash and Goh can be joined by Diamond & Pearl’s Daybreak for one more showdown with Dialga and Palkia. Whereas Sensible Diamond & Shining Pearl gamers could have been disenchanted that Platinum’s Distortion World didn’t present up within the remakes, followers of the anime are getting an surprising deal with as Ash returns to the long-lasting locale, often called the Reverse World within the Pokemon motion pictures, for the primary time 12 years. Whereas the plot remains to be unknown, the upcoming particular appears to have a robust connection to 3 of the perfect Pokemon motion pictures of all time.
Should you’re not aware of the Diamond & Pearl trilogy (or as I wish to name it, The Godkiller Trilogy) it’s a sequence of three motion pictures that passed off throughout Gen 4 that explored the Pokemon universe’s creation delusion. The primary film, Rise of Darkrai, featured a struggle between Dialga and Palkia that threatened to tear actuality aside. Dialga and Palkia management the scale of house and time, respectively, and are by no means supposed to satisfy. Because of circumstances we turn into aware about in later motion pictures, the Legendaries find yourself in a battle above Alamos City, inflicting the town to be ripped aside and transported piece by piece to a darkish dimension referred to as the Unown Dimension. Darkrai makes use of nightmares to warn Ash and Daybreak concerning the menace and assist them cease Dialga and Palkia from shattering actuality.

Within the sequel, Giratina and the Sky Warrior, we be taught that Dialga and Palkia’s battle has grave penalties for one more dimension referred to as the Reverse World. Every time there are disturbances in actuality, the Reverse World absorbs them. Sadly, all of Dialga and Palkia’s existential injury overwhelmed the Reverse World and made it inhospitable for its protector, Giratina. Giratina leaves the Reverse World and assaults Dialga, prompting a villain named Zero to seize it and drain its power in order that he can rule the Reverse World himself. Ash and Daybreak rescue Giratina with the assistance of the Mythic Pokemon Shaymin and restore stability within the Reverse World.
When the Diamond & Pearl technology ended, Daybreak left the present and solely made a couple of scattered appearances all through the Black & White technology. She wasn’t seen once more till this previous summer season when she appeared in Pokemon Journeys in a two-parter about Darkrai. And whereas Dialga and Palkia don’t seem in these episodes like they did in Rise of Darkrai, the brand new trailer for the winter particular exhibits that Daybreak, Dialga, and Palkia can be returning to the sequence subsequent week.
The timing is ideal for Sensible Diamond & Shining Pearl, nevertheless it’s clear that these episodes are additionally paying homage to The Godkiller Trilogy – notably when Ash, Goh, and Daybreak are seen leaping via a portal into the Reverse World and discover Dialga and Palkia combating there. The present has by no means been good at acknowledging the occasions of the flicks, however on this case, it looks like the connection can be inescapable.
This additionally provides some hints about what’s coming subsequent within the sequence. With Legends: Arceus launching in January, it solely is smart that the anime will shut out the trilogy with an episode that pays tribute to Arceus and the Jewel of Life, the third film within the trilogy. There, Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina returned to face off towards Arceus and reveal how the battle between Dialga and Palkia began within the first place.
It will likely be someday earlier than these episodes make it to Netflix, since Daybreak’s return from this Summer season hasn’t been dubbed in English but, nevertheless it’s good to know the Distortion World (and the Godkiller Trilogy) haven’t been utterly forgotten by the anime – even when BDSP refuses to acknowledge it.
