The Fury of Zoroark Has Been Unleashed!

The Pokémon Baccer World Cup.

It is the most anticipated event of the year, and as hundreds flock to Crown City to watch the exciting competition unfold, Ash, Pikachu, and his friends encounter a mysterious new Pokémon they have never seen before.

But when the three Legendary Pokémon Raikou, Entei, and Suicune suddenly arrive and begin rampaging through the streets, it’s up to Ash and his companions, along with their new Pokémon friend Zorua, to uncover the secret behind the immense and powerful forces at work.

What strange and dangerous powers are afoot in Crown City? Why did Celebi suddenly return after vanishing for twenty years? And why is the mighty Zoroark unleashing its fury upon the town? The quest for these answers leads down an uncertain path filled with peril—can Ash and his companions find enough courage, strength, and friendship to unearth the mystery in time to save Crown City?

Ash and his friends stop in a Pokémon Center where they watch an exhibition match of Pokémon Baccer between the evolutionary families of Elekid and Beldum. During the match, Team Rocket, disguised as janitors, asks Ash and his friends what they are watching, and Brock and Dawn explain the Pokémon Baccer World Cup. The television then cuts to a segment about the most popular team, the "Nimbasa Legends", consisting of the Legendary beasts, lead by a businessman named Grings Kodai. A clip of the Legendary Pokémon in action gets everyone excited to see them at the World Cup. Nurse Joy then walks in, and Brock immediately falls in love, but Croagunk jabs him and pulls him away. Ash is eager to reach Crown City before the day's end, that being the location of the World Cup. Brock, having already recovered from Poison Jab, quickly jumps in and asserts that he can find a shortcut.

Meanwhile, a Zoroark rests in a massive airship, as a sleepy Zorua climbs out of her fur. Suddenly, the wall opens up, revealing the Legendary beasts. Behind them, Grings Kodai and his assistant, Rowena, observe through a high up window from a separate room. Kodai tests Zoroark's power of illusions by showing her holograms of the Legendary beasts and training her to create illusions of them and their moves. At the same time, Kodai activates an illusion canceler in his bracelet. Transformed as Raikou, Zoroark unleashes thunderclouds that penetrate through the walls, startling Rowena, despite her illusion canceler also being active. Kodai is impressed with Zoroark's illusions, and notes that they even show up on camera.

Kodai's bodyguard and right-hand man, Goone, announces that they will be arriving in Crown City soon. The holograms of the Legendary beasts are deactivated, and Zoroark transforms back to her true form. Zorua jumps out of Zoroark's fur and looks around. However, Ninjask is sent in and takes Zorua, while Zoroark is held in place with excruciating electric beams. Kodai threatens that Zorua will be harmed if Zoroark doesn't behave and obey him. Unbeknownst to Zoroark, Zorua manages to escape from Ninjask, and get past one of Goone's Scizor by taking the same form as it, confusing it enough for Zorua to hop over and get past it and into a small hole that none of Goone's other Pokémon can get through. Zorua busts through a panel and falls out of the airship. During the fall, he finds a group of Hoppip, Skiploom, and Jumpluff, and grabs one of the Skiploom's blooms, taking the form of one in order to float safely towards the ground. Inside the airship, Goone confirms to Kodai that Zorua has escaped, but Kodai is not discouraged, as Goone still has Zorua's visual data. As the time approaches midnight, Kodai notes that he has one day to find the Time Ripple before it disappears. As if on queue, a Time Ripple opens in Crown City, and the Mythical Pokémon Celebi emerges right before midnight. The Time Ripple then fades.

As Ash and Dawn follow Brock on a shortcut to Crown City, the group realizes that they are lost. Suddenly, a large group of migrating Beautifly pass by and fly into the night sky, as Ash and his friends look on in awe. Meanwhile, Zorua, still in the form of Skiploom, bumps into Team Rocket on their pedal-powered Yanmega balloon, as they head towards Crown City to steal the Legendary beasts. Zorua nearly knocks Team Rocket off the balloon, and itself falls and lands on a Vigoroth, angering it. After Zorua turns back into its true form and giggles, a group of angry Vigoroth attempt to pile on top of it. However, Zorua dodges and jumps away and starts running, only to realize it is heading towards a cliff. Pikachu senses the commotion, and alerts Ash and his friends, who look up to see the Vigoroth closing in on Zorua, who is now at the edge of the cliff. They witness Zorua take the form of Vigoroth and then change back. As Zorua begins to slip, Ash and Dawn send out Infernape and Mamoswine, and everyone scolds the Vigoroth for ganging up on Zorua, causing the Vigoroth to run off. Zorua claims that he didn't need any help, and Ash and his friends begin to argue, before realizing that Zorua just spoke using telepathy. Ash and his friends are amazed to meet such a strange new Pokémon. Zorua then states that it is going to Crown City to save his "Meema", Zoroark, and explains that she was captured trying to protect it. As they head towards the city, Zorua tells about how it and Zoroark were abducted from their home across the sea. Piplup and Pikachu convince Ash and his friends to help Zorua, who, after accepting the group as his new friends, leaves them stunned by turning into Ash. Pikachu then changes Zorua back by grabbing its still-visible tail, prompting Zorua to change into Pikachu.

With Zorua gone, Kodai uses live video of a hologram of a scared Zorua to convince Zoroark to go out and create illusions of the Legendary beasts attacking Crown City. Goone then appears on the monitor to inform Kodai that he is dispatching remote camera drones to capture footage of Zoroark's illusions. That morning, Celebi flies around Crown City and greets all of the resident wild Pokémon while helping the local flowers bloom. While a woman named Tammy waters some flowers, and finishes watching Pokémon Baccer fan girl Peg perform her cheer, she witnesses Celebi as it flies by and causes the flowers she was watering to bloom. Tammy rushes to tell her friend Joe that she saw the Mythical Pokémon, which prompts the two of them to tearfully remember what happened to Crown City twenty years ago, just after Celebi had last visited, when the city's trees and flowers all died. They are overjoyed that the city is finally well enough for Celebi to begin visiting again. As the morning bell tolls, Team Rocket is woken up from the tree that their balloon had crashed into, and they lament the interruption of their brief night's sleep. They then witness as Zoroark leaps down from a building to use Night Daze. Zoroark takes the form of Suicune to create floods, Entei to form a conflagration, and Raikou to unleash a thunderstorm. As this happens, Kodai manipulates the footage to make it seem as though Zoroark has taken control of the Legendary beasts and unleashed them on Crown City. In particular, he edits the video to depict damage to a statue and a bus stop. Meanwhile, the real Legendary Beasts, serving as the guardians of Crown City, sense that Crown City is in danger, and begin making their way to the city to defend it.

Almost everyone, except for Tammy and Joe, who have taken shelter in Tammy's flower shop, evacuates the old town in Crown City, and Officer Jenny announces that no one will be allowed back in until the situation is under control. Ash and his friends arrive, and after Jenny and Peg explain what they saw, Kodai's broadcast showing Zoroark in the city prompts Zorua to take the form of Brock and run off. As Zorua tries to explain that Kodai is the real villain, a journalist named Karl appears wanting to know more. Brock tries to suggest that Zorua is actually his crazy twin brother, but Karl isn't convinced and grabs Zorua's tail, causing Zorua to change back. Karl recognizes Zorua as the pre-evolved form of Zoroark, and is amazed that it can talk. As Kodai and Rowena spot Celebi with their remote camera drones, Kodai suddenly has a vision of the Time Ripple, the nearby countdown clock, Ash and his friends alongside Karl and Rowena, and himself absorbing the power of the Time Ripple. Kodai is worried, as his ability to see the future has become clouded. Karl decides to help Ash and his friends bring Zorua to Zoroark through the underground sewers leading back to the old part of the city.

Kodai orders Goone to recapture Zoroark. After being lured in by another hologram of Zorua, Zoroark is caught by more paralyzing electrical beams generated by a drone, which then transforms into a cage. The panels close around the electric cage as Zoroark tries to break free, to no avail. Goone then transports Zoroark back to the airship. Meanwhile, Ash and the others emerge from the sewers in the middle of the old town in Crown City. After Zorua catches Zoroark's scent, Karl notices that the nearby bus stop is completely unharmed, despite what was broadcasted, and realizes that the footage was manipulated by Kodai, and that the Legendary beasts were actually illusions created by Zoroark. Remembering his visions, Kodai rides across the town on his hoverboard checking each countdown clock to find the one where the Time Ripple is located. Kodai is then alerted to the presence of Ash, and deploys Goone. While following Zoroark's scent, Ash and the others stumble upon a statue of the Legendary beasts, regarded as the guardian protectors of Crown City. Karl notices that the statue is also in one piece, despite the broadcasts.

Zorua runs off to look for Zoroark, and stops to slash a monitor displaying Kodai, which scares the nearby wild Pokémon. Zorua is then stopped by Joe's Mightyena and lulled to sleep by Tammy's Tangrowth. When Ash and the others catch up to Zorua, Mightyena tackles Karl and licks him. The group then meets up with Tammy and Joe, the latter of which is revealed to be Karl's grandfather. Tammy and Joe learn the truth about Kodai's ruse, and tell Ash and the others about Celebi. On the airship, Zoroark continues to attack the sides of its cage over and over, activating a force field that deals an electric shock with every hit. Zoroark grows frustrated and lets out a vicious roar. Sensing this, Zorua wakes from its slumber and runs off, and Ash and Dawn have Pikachu and Piplup follow it. However, they find themselves surrounded by a group of angry Pokémon, who are angry at Zorua for what they think Zoroark did to the city. Before a fight can break out, Celebi appears and calms things down by making the greenery around them bloom into Berries. Zorua befriends Celebi when it agrees to help Zorua find its mother, and they resume their search. Shortly afterward, Ash and his friends are captured by Kodai. Meanwhile, Rowena is looking through Kodai's archives discovering myths and old stories regarding Crown City and Celebi. She then reveals herself to Ash and his friends while telling them everything she discovered. She tells them how twenty years ago, Kodai not only tampered with the Time Ripple, which in the process granted him his visions, but he attacked Celebi, reversing the time flow and killing the greenery. His power, however, is rapidly leaving him.

While the Pokémon are still on their search for Zoroark, Kodai finds Celebi with Zorua and he attacks Celebi. Zorua fights Kodai and his Pokémon using illusions to protect Celebi but is knocked back. Before fainting, Zorua sends one final shout for his mother. Zoroark senses this and musters the strength to break free of her prison and begin making her way to Zorua. While on the plane, she is confronted by the real Legendary Beasts, who are convinced that Zoroark is an enemy and threat to the city. Kodai violently attacks Celebi forcing it to call upon the Time Ripple. Zorua quickly regains consciousness and fights Kodai again, but proves to be no match for him. Fortunately, the arrival of Ash and his friends counters back against Kodai in a heated battle, saving Celebi and Zorua before rapidly fleeing to safety.

Elsewhere, a conflict between Zoroark and the three Legendary Pokémon has begun to get out of hand, destroying Kodai's plane in the process. The battle continues through the town of Crown City as Zoroark proves to be too much. She manages to beat back the Legendary beasts using Night Daze before resuming her search for Zorua.

Meanwhile, Ash and his friends go to Joe's workshop. They learn that the guardians of Crown City, the Legendary beasts, are attacking Zoroark and are fighting her through town. They also discover one final clock near the stadium where the Time Ripple will appear. They also learn that Kodai has learned of this by using his spy technology. As a race to the stadium commences, Zoroark finds herself surrounded by the Legendary beasts again, and uses her illusions to trap them in clusters of crystals to prevent the Legendary Pokémon from attacking further. Zoroark's illusions are quickly broken by Rowena's illusion canceler, and the Legendary beasts are freed but are still ready to attack Zoroark. However, the Pokémon who live in the city appear and quickly stand between the guardians of Crown City and Zoroark, trying to explain to the Legendary beasts that Zoroark isn't the enemy. Zoroark is confused at this, but stops attacking as well.

Brock and Dawn have a battle with Goone to buy Ash enough time to get to the Time Ripple. During Goone's battle, Zoroark comes out of nowhere and attacks all of his Pokémon in a vengeful fury, knocking him and all his Pokémon out with ease. Kodai manages to catch up to Ash, and Celebi makes a run for it, only to be hunted down by Kodai. However, Celebi is revealed to be Zorua, flying with the aid of Karl's Bronzor. Both try their best to take Kodai down, but his Pokémon quickly knock out Bronzor, and Kodai uses the claw he intends to use to absorb the Ripple in time to capture Zorua.

At the Pokémon Baccer Stadium, Ash lets the real Celebi out of his backpack and they try to reach the Time Ripple. However, Kodai arrives and corners Ash, Pikachu, and Celebi, then making his way to the Time Ripple. Zoroark appears and charges at Kodai to take her revenge and reclaim her child, but the businessman forces Zoroark to stand down by threatening to kill the captured Zorua if she interferes, proving his point by shocking the young Pokémon in front of her. Kodai cruelly orders his Shuppet to finish off Zoroark as he approaches the Time Ripple and begins absorbing its power, not caring if the city's greenery will wither and die again. As the events that happened 20 years ago start to repeat themselves, Kodai gloats over his apparent victory to Ash, but Zoroark suddenly smirks, and time appears to reverse itself. The Time Ripple Kodai had absorbed was an illusion created by Zoroark to deceive him, allowing Karl and Rowena to capture Kodai's confession. Wondering how the illusion affected him, Kodai remembers that Zorua destroyed his illusion canceler when it bit him previously. While Kodai is distracted, Zorua manages to recover and desperately tries to reach its mother to reunite, but Kodai, furious at the deception, orders his Shuppet to attack Zorua from behind, only for Zoroark to take the attack to save her son. Before she can recover, Kodai cruelly attacks Zoroark with his claw, shocking her. Zoroark manages to fight through, attacking Kodai and defeating his Shuppet, destroying his claw in the process. Kodai, now desperate for the real Time Ripple, makes a run for it, but is stopped and scared away by the Legendary Beasts, now knowing the true threat to the city. Afterward, Zoroark's injuries soon become too painful for her to continue, causing her to collapse.

While Kodai is running away, Zoroark traps him in an illusion to deceive him that he was safe atop his plane, high in the air. She quickly cancels the illusions out, causing Kodai to fall off the platform he was on and pass out in the stadium field. Zoroark then closes her eyes with a satisfied smile, glad she was able to defeat Kodai. In tears, Zorua pleads and cries for Zoroark to wake up, then creates an illusion of a beautiful grassy field around them, their home. Celebi then uses the power of the true Time Ripple to heal itself and heal Zoroark. As Zoroark recovers, she and Zorua embrace in a tearful reunion, and Zorua thanks Celebi for saving his mother. Celebi smiles and then time travels away in billows of light after making the area's greenery bloom.

As Kodai regains consciousness, he awakes to witness his confession being broadcast all over the news and finding himself surrounded by the entire town. Officer Jenny, now seeing his true nature, arrests Kodai for his crimes as Zoroark roars. Later, Zoroark and Zorua board a ship heading back to their home with Karl and Rowena. Before they depart, Zorua mischievously takes on the form of Ash and is instantly turned back to his original form when Rowena touches his tail, while Zoroark is in the form of Pikachu before transforming back to her true form after her son is revealed. As the ship sails, Ash yells out a promise to Zorua that he will come to Zorua and Zoroark's homeland one day and visit them.

Ash and his friends cheer and watch the events in Pokémon Baccer Stadium from the stands. Kodai and Goone are sent to prison for their crimes, and the news spreads across the world. The Legendary beasts look at the ship carrying Zorua and Zoroark, bidding their farewells to the Illusion Pokémon before going their separate ways. Zoroark and Zorua nuzzle each other affectionately as the ship approaches a mist-covered island.

Celebi distribution artwork

Pre-order distribution

In Japan, people who pre-ordered tickets to the movie received a Shiny Legendary beast; Entei, Raikou or Suicune. In North America, these were distributed at GameStop stores, with a certain amount of time allotted for each of the three Pokémon. They were also later distributed via Wi-Fi for European language games and locally in South Korea. The Shiny Legendary beasts allow players to encounter Zoroark at the Lostlorn Forest when migrated into a Generation V game.

Movie distribution

A Celebi could also be downloaded in the cinema when the film was showing in theaters. In addition, Celebi was distributed at GameStop stores at the Pokémon Black and White Sampling Tour and other GameStop stores soon afterward. These Celebi allow players to befriend Zorua at Castelia City.

Other distributions

Goone's Scizor was made available to Japanese and Korean versions of the Generation IV games via Wi-Fi.

Those who attended the Black and White Tour in the United States and obtained tickets to the movie could turn in their ticket stubs later on to receive a giant Pokémon TCG card featuring Celebi and Zorua.

Manga adaptation

Main article: Zoroark: Master of Illusions (manga)


  • This movie was released between DP183 and DP184 in Japan. However, it chronologically takes place sometime before the aforementioned episodes, as they are placed in the middle of the Lily of the Valley Conference.
  • This is the only Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl movie that is a standalone movie. The other three Diamond & Pearl movies are part of a trilogy. As such, it is the only Diamond & Pearl movie not to star a member of the creation trio.
  • The movie's fictitious setting is based on various locations in the Netherlands and Belgium, such as Magere Brug, Amstel River, Kinderdijk, and Brussels.
  • This movie marks the first time all three of the Legendary beasts appear at the same time in the anime, and also the first time Raikou receives a starring role in a movie.
  • This is the third movie so far that does not have a Legendary Pokémon as the main featured Pokémon, the first being Spell of the Unown: Entei and the second being Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.
  • This movie ends with Team Rocket being the last characters to appear before the ending credits. This is a pattern found in early movies, which stopped occurring after Celebi: The Voice of the Forest, and has not happened again.
  • The teaser trailer shown at the end of Arceus and the Jewel of Life showed Ho-Oh and Lugia locked in an aerial battle, while a later trailer showed a strange city and Ash meeting a darker version of himself. None of these elements made it into the final movie.
  • This movie was released in Taiwan on July 30, 2010, which was just 20 days after its Japanese premiere.
  • Professor Rowan, Rhonda, Johanna, Paul, Zoey, Barry, Nando, Kenny, Conway, Ursula, Cynthia and Palmer make cameo appearances in the movie's credits, along with the Sinnoh Gym Leaders Ash battled and Elite Four. Most of them appear with one of their Pokémon.
  • Ethan makes a cameo in the beginning of the movie with a Donphan, seen in battle with Ash.
    • This makes this movie the second in which Ash battles a Trainer with a Donphan in the beginning. The first was in Mewtwo Strikes Back.
  • The Officer Jenny seen in this movie has a star symbol on her hat, which was the same symbol worn by the Jenny in Viridian City (who was also the first Officer Jenny to appear in the anime).
  • This is the only anime appearance of a Generation V Pokémon prior to Pokémon the Series: Black & White.
  • When Team Rocket sees Zoroark, Jessie asks "Who's that Pokémon?". While this is obviously a reference to the feature of the same name in the TV show, it may also be a premonition that it would return to the show starting with the next season.
  • During the scene where Celebi flies around the city, when it calms the feuding Pokémon, and when it revives Zoroark, remade versions of the Voice of the Forest melody from Celebi: The Voice of the Forest can be heard.
  • The movie was shown at local theaters during the Pokémon Black Version and White Version Tour between February 5, 2011 and March 20, 2011 in the United States.
  • In the initial Cartoon Network broadcasts, the entire prologue was cut, with the movie beginning immediately at the title sequence. These scenes are present in the theatrical version.
  • As of this movie, Ash has seen all the Legendary Pokémon from the first four generations at least once.
  • Karl's cap has a picture of a Woobat on it; that Pokémon had only been officially revealed four days prior to this movie's release.
  • During the Pokémon Baccer match, the announcer titles Kodai's team as the Nimbasa Legends. Nimbasa City is a city that appears in Generation V, hinting to Kodai's possible origins.
  • During the title sequence, after Zoroark: Master of Illusions is displayed, a part of the music from Lostlorn Forest can be heard.
  • This movie marks the debut of the made-up writing system created for the anime, which would start being used consistently from Pokémon the Series: Black & White onward.
  • This movie marks the first anime appearance of a Beldum other than the one that belonged to Morrison.


Rhyperior's mouth's color error
Dawn's miscolored hair clips
  • In the credits, Palmer's Rhyperior's mouth was the same color as its horn and the top-most part of its body.
  • During Kodai's "apology" broadcast, Peg can be briefly seen standing with Ash and his friends. Her eyes are drawn oval-shaped, with visible pupils, as opposed to all of the other times in the movie when she is drawn without pupils.
  • As Ash asks "What do you mean?" in the scene when Ash and his friends were trapped in the cage by Kodai, Dawn's hair clip is the same color as her hair.
  • Among the Pokémon using Bullet Seed is Kricketune, a Pokémon unable to legally learn the move.
  • Near the end of the movie, while Kodai is pursuing Bronzor and Zorua (who was disguised as Celebi), his Illusion Canceler failed to reveal Zorua's disguise even though it was not yet broken at that point.

Dub edits

  • Zorua calls Zoroark "Meema" instead of "Maa".
  • In the original version, the password to Kodai's secret files was "Time Ripple". In the English dub it is "V-I-S-I-O-N". This is likely due to "Time Ripple" having six characters in Japanese kana but 11 letters in English.
  • During the climax of the movie in Japanese, Zorua says "Maa... I couldn't do anything", while in the English dub, he instead says the much darker phrase of "I guess there isn't much time left for me..." implying that he expects to die.
  • While Zorua is in Tangrowth's arm after being hit by Sleep Powder, he mumbles "I'm not sleepy...!" in Japanese, while in English he remains silent.
  • Ice Cream Syndrome is replaced as the ending song of the movie by a new song titled I Believe in You.
