So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure is an action-adventure game where you play as a Pikachu. You make friends with other Pokémon, chat with them, and play games with them. It's like Facebook... for Pokémon. Also, try standing near Mr. Mime and see what happens.

Unused Model Geometry

What self-respecting psychic type needs hands anyways?

Deoxys' model is a bit strange in that it has two extra arms with hands in addition to its four tentacles. While technically used, they never show up in-game and are hidden in all three of Deoxys' animations. The extra arms are fully rigged with the exception of the fingers.

What makes the arms especially strange is that they aren't in their own special model group as you might expect, but rather attached to Deoxys' main body group. This means that the game can't simply "turn off" the arms to hide them. Instead, the base arm bone is resized to be as small as possible and moved to be inside Deoxys' body. If you were to clip the camera in-game to go inside Deoxys' model, you would be able to see the inverted stubs of its extra arms.

On an interesting side note, Deoxys' archive is named Deoxys000.brres, as opposed to just Deoxys.brres. While seemingly pointless at face value, the "000, 001, 002, etc." addition is only given to a select few Pokemon that have multiple forms in the game, like Rotom. From this, it can be assumed that Deoxys was planned to have its other forms in addition to Speed Form at one point.

Unused Textures

Deoxys' Eye States

I have the ability to blink, but I would rather stare into your soul.

While the texture itself is used in-game, none of the eye states except for the first one are ever shown in any of Deoxys' three animations. The model and related texture animation files are correctly configured to allow Deoxys to blink, they just aren't set to ever make use of it.

Unused Music

One of the anime series' themes, Pokémon Holiday, which in turn is a remix of the main series' Pokémon Center theme. A pretty catchy tune, but the purpose is unknown.

A rock tune that doesn't fit the rest of the game at all. Given that the file name has the word "attraction" in it, it's not too hard to assume that this would accompany an attraction theme. It also uses very blatant synthesizers.

Another rock tune that's similar in composition to the one above, but uses different instruments. The filename has the word "tikarakurabe" in it, which means "contest of strength". The only attraction in the game that fits the bill is "Blaziken's Boulder Bash", so it could have been alternate music for that game.

Unused Cries

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: WHO'S THAT POKÉMON?!

Two unused cries for a Pokémon that would've been played when Pikachu greets and attacks it, respectively.

Regional Differences

Password Changes

Probably the most well-known regional difference is the different passwords for each region. This trend is seen in most other Pokémon games with password-locked content.

Revisional Differences

A couple of small typos were fixed in later versions.
