The Space-Time Tower glowing when playing Oración

Oración (Japanese: オラシオン Oracion) is the song that Alice plays in The Rise of Darkrai to calm down Piplup, Shinx, Azumarill and some other Pokémon. In a flashback, Alicia was playing Oración to a sleeping Luxray, a Roserade, a Kirlia, and Darkrai. It also seemed to negate the effects of Darkrai's Bad Dreams Ability, as the other three Pokémon were seen affected by it before she played it. In another flashback, Alicia was teaching Alice to play the song on the grass flute. Later, it takes more importance in the film when it is played by the Space-Time Tower machine to calm the anger between Dialga and Palkia, ending their fight.

Other uses

On Poké, if a user typed "orasion" into the text box, a special wallpaper from The Rise of Darkrai was available. The password is misspelled, as there is no S in Oración. This page was removed from Poké during the site overhaul.


  • On an engraving in the Music Room inside the Space-Time Tower, it appears as if Alicia is playing Oración because she is whistling on a leaf and the Pokémon around her appear calm.
  • Oración is often used as background music in the anime.
  • "Oración" is Spanish for "Prayer". This reflects the fact that Alamos Town is based on a Spanish village.
  • This song can sometimes be heard when a Pokémon uses the Move Grass Whistle such as when Cilan's Pansage used the Move in SS027.
