Synopsis

Satoshi and his friends get lost in an unknown wasteland. They eventually come across a "Water Pokemon Show" performed by the star of the Mariner Troupe, Hiromi. Hiromi is a descendant of the troupe of Water People able to communicate with water pokemon, and she tells our heroes the legend that's been passed down by her people for generations. According to legend, a temple the Water People built called "The Water Temple Akuusha" rests somewhere in the ocean, and a treasure called "The Water Crown" is hidden there. It's said that no one has ever seen this treasure, but that changes when a Pokemon Ranger named Jack Walker (aka Jackie) appears to chase aftert it.

Jackie is on a top secret mission that has him protecting the egg of the leader of the water pokemon, Manaphy. This pokemon, called the "Prince of the Sea," needs to be taken to the Water Temple Akuusha, so Satoshi-tachi and Hiromi decide to help him. Along the way, a pirate named Phantom attacks our heroes from his great submarine. Phantom plans to use the Water Crown's power to help him conquer the world, but he'll have to solve the mystery of Manaphy's egg first. When the Rocket-Dan get into the mix, Jackie uses his Capture Styler to borrow the power of a nearby pokemon to stand up to them. Satoshi and Pikachu enter the fray, but they still have to contend with the attacks of Phantom's powerful high tech mecha! Suddenly, the egg starts to shine with a vivid light, and Manpahy is born!

What is the mystery of the legendary treasure? What mysterious powers does Manaphy have? Can Satoshi-tachi and Jackie complete their top secret mission? The journey to reach the Water Temple Akuusha has begun!

Manaphy: The Movie, or if you're fond of long winded titles, Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea, is the fourth and last film in the Pokemon Advance series. While the film series continued onward with annual releases under a slightly different name, this was the last we saw of May and Max. The first Advance film gave Max some focus, but both characters were generally reduced to supporting roles. Luckily for May, Pocket Monsters Advanced Generation the Movie: Pokémon Ranger and the Prince of the Sea: Manaphy decided to focus on her. And lucky indeed she is, because the fourth Advance film is read more

In the long list of Pokémon movies, this is not the worst nor the best.

There were many elements I thought were very computer game-ish; I could see that if they wanted to turn the movie straight into a game, there would be many scenes directly translated to that with all the jumping, fighting and moving around.

Our main character Ash, Brock, May and Max are joined by a Marina Group, who put on a beautiful show with water and psychic Pokémon. None of the new characters stay as strangers and they become part of the story very nicely.

This was the cutest Pokemon movie ever. Pokemon Rangers are set out to protect Manaphy, "the prince of the sea."

After it hatches, it sees May as its mother, thus making a strong and painful bond for them.

After evil comes to capture Manaphy, Ash is the hero once again. For the kids that don't know this generation, this will show how Ash has come along. For those that have seen this, couldn't hurt to watch it again!

This may just be IMO but... there ARE some similarities. The endings are different (obviously) but, if you look at it like this, IMO, you will see the similarities

Sousuke- May
Ponyo- Manaphy
Fujimoto- Pokemon Ranger Jackie Walker

So... yeah... do whatever you want
