Destiny Deoxys (2004) Trailer

I can't find the Japanese or English trailer any where so here's a Chinese one. lol

Destiny Deoxys (2004) at a glance
Destiny Deoxys (2004) is the seventh theatrical film released by Pokémon. Directed by Kunihiko Yuyama, it is one of the first two Pokémon movies available on Blu-ray along with Pokémon Heroes: Latios and Latias (2002)

Destiny Deoxys (2004) Synopsis
High-tech Larousse City is a pretty impressive place to visit—and a pretty impressive place for a Pokémon battle, too! Ash heads straight for their renowned Battle Tower, but things don't turn out too well when his battle partner turns out to be a scared boy named Tory. Because of a frightening childhood incident, Tory is scared of all Pokémon—even cute ones like Pikachu! 

There's a lot more to be frightened by when Deoxys shows up and takes control of the city, shutting down the machines and taking everyone captive. One Pokémon that is not amused is the Legendary Rayquaza, and it will do whatever it takes to remove this invader from its territory! Meanwhile, Ash, Tory, and all their friends may be caught in the middle, but they're certainly not out of the fight!

Movie Review: Destiny Deoxys (2004)
Deoxys meets Rayquaza.

Man, this is the first animated feature by Pokémon without a Pikachu short. It is one of my all-time favorite anime series so I am always looking forward to them. Thankfully, the creators of Destiny Deoxys (2004) have make up for it with great backstory and plot! 

Rare aurora sightings in Larousse City.

It also have great settings and the anime-exclusive Larousse City is totally one-of-a-kind; just a glimpse of it already make me want to visit it someday... if only it is a real place, though! 

Legendary Pokémon from Outer Space.

What's more amazing is that the creators of this animated feature have included lots of lovable characters in this one. Deoxys, the alien-like Pokémon is mysterious and its concept is certainly amazing! I won't spoil it for you if you haven't seen it but all the other Pokémon are also interesting in their own ways and most of them are super adorable too!

Plusle and Minun likes Tory!

Not only the human characters and Pokémon each have their distinct personalities, there are some intelligent non-human non-Pokémon characters such as Block Bots as well. My apologies if I have used words like endearing a lot for these reviews but they have various expressions like emoji and they can perform numerous tasks including security; which are just so cute! So overall, Destiny Deoxys (2004) is very impressive! 

May, Max, Yuko and the twin girls.

Yes, there could be some stuffs that are mind boggling but well, the Pokémon Universe is essentially a fantasy based on video games so it is actually perfectly fine if you allow it! Nothing is perfect in this world but compared to the older Pokémon films, it is so much better and improved in various aspects!

What's matter most is that the whole experience doesn't feel flat, isn't it?

Team Rocket and hamburger machine!

Therefore, I am sure you will be pleasantly entertained if you give this animated feature a chance because I am quite certain that Destiny Deoxys (2004) is one of the easiest-to-love Pokémon film out there! 

PS. This one made it into my favorite list! ^_~

Favorite Movie Character
Plusle, Minun and Tory.

I love Plusle and Minun because..... well if you have been reading, I am kind of sure you would know what I would say.... Cuddly, adorable and playful... D; But these two Pokémon are like Pichu brothers, they are never without the other so I am quite envious of them actually. ><

And the Block Bots! Like I have mentioned in the movie review part, they have various expressions like emoji and they can perform numerous tasks so they are super cool but I don't have their photo! Go watch Destiny Deoxys (2004) now if you haven't seen it already. =P

Destiny Deoxys (2004) Movie Quotes
Compiled these myself ><
  1. The Pokéball, the invention that captured the imagination of people everywhere.
  2. Thanks to it's ability to capture the most marvelous of creatures, Pokémon. And to catch one is an experience like no other. 
  3. Each of these spectacular species have amazing powers and attributes, that set them apart from one another in ways too numerous to list. But unique as they are individually, together they make up the incredible world of Pokémon. 
  4. For once they are captured in a Pokéball, Pokémon bond with their human trainers as friends, partners, family. On their journey of discovery, trainers and their Pokemon learn about themselves as much as each other. 
  5. And they also realize that there will always be more Pokémon than they could ever have imagined. You see for each Pokémon that's discovered, there are dozens. Perhaps hundreds more we have yet to meet. 
  6. One things for sure, with each of these new Pokémon come new possibilities, new stories, new friendships and new adventures. 
  7. Perhaps Pokémon Trainers aren't the only ones to seek out new species. The Pokémon themselves seem to have an innate curiosity for the creatures of this world and of worlds beyond.
  8. After all, we may live on a Pokémon planet, but nobody ever said that it's the only one...
  9. Impossible keeping up with him!
  10. Wow, it's a Spheal.
  11. Rayquaza never leaves the ozone layer. Why now?
  12. Larousse City, the headquarter for anything and everything high tech.
  13. This will serve as your passport. 
  14. While in Larousse City, keep it with you all time. Your passport can be used for shopping and other needs.
  15. No need to thank me, I just couldn't continue to watching you look like a fool.
  16. Watch out, my brother Rafe's really strong. Blaziken too!
  17. Tory? In a Pokémon battle?
  18. Hey Ash, you sure didn't waste any time!
  19. Of course not, I can't wait to beat you!
  20. Hey, May! Make sure you watch, I am dedicating this battle to you!
  21. I'm not a Pokémon trainer, I have been trying to tell you!
  22. I don't know what to tell him!
  23. Look like blue team can't work as a team!
  24. We just watch your Pokémon Battle. I am incredibly proud!
  25. Don't be, it was all an accident. Wasn't even suppose to happen!
  26. I'll be happy to vouch his insanity.
  27. The truth is, Tory is completely afraid of Pokémon.
  28. About four years ago, he had a very traumatic experience and it left him terrified of them. Sadly he still haven't manage to get over those fears. 
  29. But underneath him, I think he really loves them. All he needs is a chance to know them, that's all. 
  30. You're awfully kind.
  31. I helped out a Pokémon. It had its head stuck inside a garbage can so I helped it to get it out. Isn't that cool?
  32. And I was even a part of a Pokémon battle too.

  40. It's Munchlax and they love to eat!
  41. Guess it's doing what it loves. 
  42. It's a Plusle and Minun!
  43. That's called an Aurora but it's only can be seen in the north and south pole. 
  44. If you're looking for a real phenomenon, stop looking into your computer and spend some time with me!
  45. Yuko and I made this for you. Pokémon cookies.
  46. Did that just happen.
  47. It's stealing the food we are stealing.
  48. It's always here for me, whenever I call for it.
  49. Fellow citizens, we're facing an emergency situation, please evacuate immediately. 
  50. Please be patience, the next ferry will arrive shortly.
  51. A Pokémon from outer space. Four years ago a meteorite came down and struck the north pole. And located inside of it was a completely unknown Pokémon. It was Professor Lund who gave that Pokémon a name, Deoxys.
  52. Almost immediately, Rayquaza appeared from the ozone and attack Deoxys. Apparently, Rayquaza was threatened and thought Deoxys was invading its territory. Deoxys went deep into the sea. 
  53. It has astounding regenerative powers and that's what Professor Lund and I have been studying all these years.
  54. It sounds more like science fiction. This is something I would love research.
  55. But I wonder if it could somehow get in through a crack in the wall.
  56. Deoxys carry off all those people and Pokémonbecause they were interfering while it's search for its friend. Deoxys sees certain type of electrical field, but it's not only electrical devices that give off those field. So do people and Pokémon and they are blocking its vision. 
  57. That's why it's moving it out of the way to find it.
  58. You have to help Deoxys to regenerate!
  59. It's so sad, it's been alone all of this time.
  60. I'll never take escalator for granted again!
  61. Just don't let anything happen to my sisters!
  62. Just pedal!
  63. Deoxys, do you want to go find your friend now?
  64. I am so happy you're okay!
  65. Goodbye, I'll miss you!
  66. Wherever they go, they will always have each other.
  67. Pikachu, I am glad we always have each other.
