    Celebi & Joy!

    Richie is travelling through a bustling town where he sees that the Pokémon Center is about to get demolished by an old man. However the old Nurse Joy won't let this happen causing problems. Celebi appears and sends Richie back in time to see that they once knew eachother. Can Richie re-awaken their spirits to stop the destruction?

  2. This episode looks good and I thought up some nice titles.

    -Time Travel Tricks-
    -Time and Time Again-
    -Time is Celebii-

    The last one kinda sucks but its alright, I guess.

    Meh. This TV special was boring because of it being Hiroshi who's the main character and Celebi wasn't even really around much. :\ They did focus on Celebi, but Celebi was rarely ever on screen.

    Well, you gotta give it kudos for having a unique plot though.

    I just saw this special. I have to say, the plot was really good. And this is the first time they added an old Joy in the story. Really weird to see an old Joy a few times in an episode XD Overall, I liked seeing Celebi a few times. I think it's really sweet :) And Richie was a good character too in this special imo, it was nice to see how he has been during his journey. I'd say that this was a very original special and I enjoyed watching it :)

    This episode has exactly the kind of backwards quality that the Advanced generation sorely lacks. Time travel? Completely changing history?! Where can we find that nowadays?

    Despite the fact that this episode featured Richie, I'll let it slide. I actually found it kinda funny. Not exactly entirely Pokémon-related, but good nonetheless. The construction workers' Pokémon were some of my faves (Scyther, Pinsir, Mchoke, Rhydon... KANTO PRIDE!) and since I never saw the 4th movie I liked seeing Celebi.

    At this stage I think the writers are taking the mick having Richie riding a Ponyta. The whole 'clone' business, y'know?

    this was dodgy

    Richie went back in time and altered the past, wouldnt that have made the universe collapse on itself?

    did they keep celebi's dub voice? I might watch pokemon 4ever tonight to see

    this overall was Ok but not great

    8/10

    Celebi kept the same voice from the movie I assume?

    I haven't actually seen the dub yet, but I do know the Celebi had a different voice to the movie version in the original~
    Didn't the original voice actor for the movie Celebi die or something anyway? Or have I been grossly misinformed/confusing it with Jirachi's voice actor?

    I could be wrong, but I don't think the original voice actor is dead. At least, it's not recorded here.

    Ya know ShucklemasterJ, I was wonderin about that too. If the whole city didn't exist anymore, replaced by that town instead, then surely it'd mean that 1. some people might never have been born and 2. people who would have worked there would have to work and live elsewhere, completely altering the future. But hey, it's only meddling with the passage of time.

    Ahh, thanks. I must have gotten confused with Jirachi's voice actor then~

    Wait a second. If Richie had never shown up and saved Joy from plummeting down to the bottom of that cliff, then she would have most certainly died. So, how come in the future she was still alive and well?

    And if Richie DID change the past, then surely all his memories of what the city used to look like would have been erased? Changing time the way he did would have meant he would never have passed through the city in the state it was formerly in.

    If he'd gone back in time then he would have always been there. He would have never not gone to the past, if you get my meaning. It's like the game Timesplitters: Future Perfect. When you time travel you wouldn't experience a new past, since you are going back to the only past possible because when the past used to be the present you would have showed up, coming from the future.

    Time travel. What a novel idea.

    EDIT: If anyone actually understood what I was waffling about, fair play to you.

    If anybody reads Archie Comics (especially the Digests), you might have occasionally come across a story that was part of a series called Jughead's Time Police. In that series, they call what Batdude just described a "time paradox".

    So I wasn't way off base, and there's actually a proper term for that sort of thing? Cool.

    How slow was that bolt of lightning as it was going for the shrine? Riche and Joy both had time to leap out from where they were and head for Nick before Celebi shielded the blow.

    Richie handled himself against the workers very well. Is it safe to assume now that Happy has gone off with another Butterfree to mate? We haven't seen it since the Indigo League, right?
     
  16. Why doesn't Richie ever use his Pupitar anymore? Its all Sparky, Rose and then Zippo. I want Pupitar more. Anyway it was very strange that the wooden Celebii was in was in the desk for 70 yaers and only Celebii and Kick knew it was there for all that time, well not Nick cause he died. Well it was very funny at the ed with Nick in the photo, also very sweet with young love ^^ But it was wierd with Richie in "normal" clothes and everybody in non normal clothes also Celebii's voice was very high but suited it very much so. Pretty good anyway!

    Keep in mind that since we saw Pupitar, we've only really seen Richie send out Pokemon twice. Also, since he's a travelling trainer like Ash, there's a good chance he has many other Pokemon we've never seen.

  19. Nick was his name.
