From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Godey (Japanese: ゴーディ Gaudí) is a character seen in flashbacks in The Rise of Darkrai. He is the great-grandfather of Tonio and the architect of the Space-Time Tower.
Godey owned a journal that Tonio discovered, revealing that he had seen Alicia playing the song "Oración" on a leaf, surrounded by a group of wild Pokémon, as well as Darkrai's shadow.
At some point, he had a nightmare in which Alamos Town was being destroyed by Palkia and Dialga. He theorized that the only thing that would stop the two from destroying the town was Oración, as it should calm them down as it had calmed the Pokémon that were with Alicia. He subsequently made a special song disc that would play Oración on the Space-Time Tower's chimes.
Godey's nightmare would come true many years later, and it would be up to Ash and Dawn to carry out his solution.
- His name and character, as well as his descendant Tonio, are derived from Antoni Gaudí. Gaudí was the famous Spanish Victorian artist and architect of La Sagrada Família and Parque Güell, which are both featured prominently in The Rise of Darkrai.
- Godey's original design did not have a beard. Instead, he had a broad, thick mustache.
- He is occasionally depicted with a cane, notably in some official artwork and in the photograph of himself and Alicia. However, he is clearly shown to not require it to walk, so it may be ornamental.
