Yoshiko Mita plays Xerneas, her first ever anime role. She describes Xerneas as the originator of life itself. "It has this air, this aura around it." Yamadera joked that Mita has such an aura around her as well.

Mayu Watanabe will be narrating the short. She was nervous at first, but she's been wanting to be in a Pokémon movie for so long and calmed down because she was having so fun dubbing.

Marilyn is played by Rika Adachi. She had a lot of fun working together with Yamadera in the scenes that were shown on Oha Suta.

The comedy duo Nakagawa-ke consists of Tsuyoshi Nakagawa who plays Nite and Reiji Nakagawa who plays Algus. Yamadera jokes that they got cast because they have the same last name as Shoko-tan. Nite doesn't speak any actual Japanese lines, just Poké-language.
