ポケットモンスター ベストウイッシュ！アニメの原画・動画 (第ＢＷ２０話 「ピカチュウVSメグロコVSコアルヒー」より)
Welcome to the
Pokemon: Best Wishes episode 20 gallery!
On this page I feature my collection of authentic pencil
art used to
the modern Pokemon anime -- in an episode which finally aired on Feb.
2011! Why do I say finally? I aquired these sketches in late September
2010 -- a good and full five months before the episode even aired. Now
they are better than ever, in proper order, with anime screenshot
In these 100+ sketches, you will witness a scene
unfold where some Duckletts
swoop down, attack Oshawott, Cilan, and Iris, steals Ash's hat, and
terrify Sandile. Enjoy this sneak peek behind the scenes of Best Wishes
anime, which caused around 30-40,000+
people to come to see the sketches after they hit international
sites around the world.
Duckling attacks Oshawott and
The sketches begin about ten minutes in. Ash has vanished
down a hole, and Cilan suddenly has his dish stolen by a Ducklett. When
he runs to get it back, Ducklett attacks!
...aaand the attack (Boiled Water) rebounds off Oshawott's shell into
My original comment here was "Who's Zuruggu is that?!". Well, now we

Oshawott is brave but can't take it for long. Notice C-267 and C-73 on
I was not sure why two seemingly identical scenes were so far apart.
Now I know... Oshawott throws this similar fit twice in this episode.
I'll sort the details of which pages belong to which tantrum later on.
And dropped the shell. That's one of your body parts, man.
Ducklett grabs the cap and
Switch to Ash, Pikachu, and Sandile, who was the perpetrator of the
hole Ash fell into. One Ducklett has stolen his glasses, rendering him
cowardly, and another swoops down for Ash's cap.
Ducklett swoops in -- this is a mere shadow in the anime.
Notice C-122 on the "storyboard" page. That's the third indication of a
number. Also note the #20, probably
the episode number.
The animator who drew this page must have been wearing nostalgia
goggles, because they messed up and drew first Ash's jacket wrong, then they fixed that,
but not his hat!
Here, you did it right! Good! :D
He got my hand, too!! Bastard!!
There is it, nevermind.
Hey Ash! I've got a cute fluffy butt, oh, and also, your hat!
And I'm livin' it up like it's 1990 all over again!
Oh come on, you're a crocodile, he's a
Sandile is terrified and pathetic without
his sunglasses. Save me Ash, you're my only hope!

Oshawott right in his widdle otter face.
That sh*t ain't cool!!
I shall punish you!
Aaaagh! Baby duckling! Actually he is running crazy because his head
got boiled. This is something we could not tell from sketches alone.
Keep it away!!!
Nooooooo baby birdies!!! Noooooo
Okay enough of that. This is war! Or a temper tantrum! Same thing I

Aaaaaand BOOM goes the dynamite.
