Director: Cedric Herole Comments

I love animals, so it's very sad to imagine that owners and their pets are separated from each other. Pokémon are very different from pets, but when I read the script for the first time, I was reminded that it is equally sad when partners are separated. I feel sorry for the Koiking who waited in anticipation, wondering if Rikuo would come back. Koiking are always expressionless, but I'm sure it was sad. I wanted to make a cheerful film, so I didn't push the sadness too hard, but I wanted to convey the loneliness of the Pokémon and the children. Even so, the Koiking dances cheerfully and Rikuo plays the recorder reassuringly. I'm happy to have friends! Because you're never alone.
