(Japanese: ポケットモンスター XY 宇宙の破片 Pocket Monsters XY: Celestial Debris) is an anime special that is shown at various planetariums and museums in Japan, being the fifth of such specials. It debuted at the Konica Minolta Planetarium in Sunshine City on July 12, 2014. It is 40 minutes long, including a presentation about the summer sky.


The story starts with Satoshi and friends paying a visit to PAXA, an organisation which does research and development on space. Satoshi and friends get excited hearing about the wonders of space and the Pokémon that might be found in space from a female astronaut stationed at PAXA. However, they also learn of the crisis caused by the threat of space debris, and the growing problem of space junk, when suddenly a siren rings out. Shockingly, Team Rocket have infiltrated PAXA, aiming to hijack the facility. In the midst of this emergency, trouble also occurs with the man-made satellite defense system. If nothing is done, it will crash into a large piece of debris, which in turn has the risk of causing even more space debris. If there's any more space debris, then the space around the planet will be full, and mankind will have its path to space closed off forever.
