The Gates to Infinity anime short was officially uploaded to YouTube to promote the release of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. Unlike previous Pokémon Mystery Dungeon anime specials, it is just a short rater than a full episode, consisting of two parts.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Part 1[edit | edit source]

Part 1 (Japanese: PV1(パラダイス篇), PV1 Paradise episode) starts with the main character finding out that he has transformed into an Oshawott, when suddenly a blue Magnagate appears below him, causing him to fall from the sky in the Pokémon world, asking for help as he falls. Pikachu wakes him up in the Forest near Ragged Mountain, startling him and headbutting each other. Oshawott is surprised to hear Pikachu talk. Pikachu later explains to Oshawott her dream of building Pokémon Paradise and asks him to help. In the extra segment Azumarill opens the Request Gate and wishes Pikachu and Oshawott good luck as they start a new mission.

Part 2[edit | edit source]

SPOILER WARNING!
This page or section contains spoilers.

Part 2 (Japanese: PV2(冒険篇), PV2 Adventure episode) starts with Oshawott and Pikachu running from Munna's Gang in the Holehills before reaching a dead end. The two prepare to fight, but a mysterious Pokémon flies towards them.
Umbreon and Espeon summon a Magnagate to reach the Great Glacier with Oshawott, Pikachu, Dunsparce and Virizion for the first time. While they explore the inside of Glacier Palace, everyone except Oshawott starts having trouble breathing and collapses right before Kyurem appears from above. In the extra segment, Kyurem advises Oshawott to leave Glacier Palace.

Version differences[edit | edit source]

  • In the dubs all Pokémon names are changed to their western counterparts.
  • The dubs play a different segment of the rendition of Stirrings of Hope used by the short. The track starts playing at the same time in all versions of the short, however in the dubs, the track starts 20 seconds earlier than the original Japanese version, meaning the calm part of the track is never reached, unlike the Japanese version, where it's used when Pikachu asks Oshawott to help with Pokémon Paradise.
  • In the original, when Oshawott wakes up, Pikachu says "よかった!" ("Thank goodness!"). In the dubs she points out that he is awake.
  • In the dubs, after Umbreon explains they're about to summon a Magnagate, Oshawott inexplicably asks Pikachu what it is when it appears in front of them, while in the original Japanese version he says "すごい" ("Amazing").
  • In all European versions, as well as the American re-upload with the Super Mystery Dungeon border, the animation is slowed down and zoomed in when Pikachu and Oshawott are running to the Request Gate.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In the Japanese version, Pikachu's lines during her monologue are similar or identical to the partner's in-game dialogue right after buying the land from Quagsire and while asking Emolga and Dunsparce to help with Pokémon Paradise after completing Desolate Canyon for the first time.
    • Umbreon and Espeon's lines are also the same as some of their in-game lines shortly after the player agrees to let them open the Magnagate to reach the Great Glacier, as well as the partner's line right before entering it.
  • The Japanese version of the extra segment of Part 1 can't be found online or in the DVD, seemingly having never having been published despite all the voice actors being known.
  • The design of the cloth on the Request Counter is similar to the one seen in the released game, with the biggest difference being the white circles, which are blue on the inside in the short. The arrow behind the counter uses an older design seen in Japanese prerelease screenshots, where the arrow was straight instead of angled and the three blue lines weren't present yet. The position of the notes on the Request Board also seems to be based on the older game design.
