    Default Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea (M09)

    Pokémon Ranger and the Prince Of The Sea - Manafi!

    On their travels through the Battle Frontier, Ash & Co. meet up with a Pokémon Ranger called Jackie who is on a mission to protect Manafi's egg and deliver it to an ancient temple in the depths of the sea. However, a pirate called Phantom wants the Egg for his own desired. In protection of this egg, May obtains a bond with Manafi, and when it hatches befriends it and will attempt to protect it. Will they Protect it? Will they complete the mission?

    Well, after reading the guide, guess that puts a halt on TGB's idea of Jackie being the main villain.

    Anyway, it looks like it's gonna be good; the thing I'm most interested in is Manafi's childlike nature and May acting as it's mother. In fact, it's almost a shame that it will be done with those terrible new VA's. *shudder*

    Awww, I loved how Jackie and Ash interacted so much, let alone May and Ash.

    Seemed like Max and Brock were thrown in the back, painted grey, pushed to the ground and kicked a couple of time to never be heard of in 90% of the movie.
    Ah well.

    I was a bit surprised that Manaphy seemed to calm down after it had Jackie and Ash switch bodies and it was then with Ash. I always got the impression from the previews that it wasn't fond of him - Glad I was wrong, though.

    What I feel like was left out, though, was the King's powers Ash was granted. Did he keep them or did they disappear along with Akuja in the end?

    That's different from the main series how? XP

    After reading the guide...interesting. No major comments ATM, other than Kyogre having what looked like 5 minutes of screentime right at the end. Yesh, it was the first thing we saw in the promos for this and it had such a minor role.

    Manaphy seems like Ash's Larvitar in nature, somewhat. And so THAT'S what the Prince of the Sea thing was about...

    And of course Pirate Dude(yegads, I keep forgetting his name x.x)...uh, Phantom...ended up having that superhuman strength from a machine at the end. D:

    You know those quickfire talkbacks I do for episode reviews where I repeatedly switch between watching the ep and posting some random comment? I think I'll do the same here.

    - HITOMI cameo? You mean, as in Hitomi from Movie 7? This is already getting good...
    - So the Mantine isn't actually Jackie's. He just used that mind-controlling Beyblade on it.
    - Max is getting abused in this. Joy.
    - Team Rocket has their own magazine?
    - TR body-switch motto sounds hysterical.
    - Now that I think about it, Wobbuffet and Manene switching bodies would have been even funnier.
    - Not only does May have premature "growth", but she's a preteen mother!
    - The chemistry between Manaphy and May is cute...
    - Manaphy SINGS!?!
    - I'm getting some serious Movie 6 vibes from this.
    - All right, so a Tamanta DOES do something in this...
    - Phantom needs to take some classes on being a villain.
    - Now we're moving into Movie 8...
    - Mechanized suit? Lame.
    - WTF? Not only does Manaphy have power over flipping Kyogre, but the thing is treated the same as any other ordinary Pokemon? And appears for what sounds like one minute?

    Sounds okay overall, but probably would have been much better if it didn't rehash so many ideas from previous movies. I'll await the Hiromi pics from this point.
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    Did I miss something in the movie or something?

    OMG I LUV MANAPHY~! I'm gonna finish Ranger and transfer the egg over to my Diamond.

    The movie is my favourite so far. You gotta love the Temple's layout and the amazingly high technology used on it. I mean, Manaphy's singing and the stones were able to open the 'door' (if those waterfalls could be counted as doors). And my gosh, Jackie Walker has awesome-ness written all over him, save the 'Leave everything to me' motto he has. Team Rocket's motto when they switched bodies was pure crack. I seldom see James looking so stupid. Phantom and Chatot were really compatible, I mean Chatot repeats everything Phantom says twice, and Phantom keeps repeating the 'There are two knds of people in the world blah blah blah'.

    Graphic-wise: Incredible 3D tour of the Temple. But they overused the 3D effect here. Likewise, incredible animation and the flooding water. The water level actually rises as Ash is breathing (gawd, I feel like a retard for not noticing this earlier). A few logic exaggerations, like how can Ash dive so deep underwater? I can't do the same in the sea without any weights to regulate my floatation. And how can he see with his eyes wide open? But this is anime, anything goes

    And the manga (yes, we have the manga of the movie here) cut loads of scenes but was replaced by equally awesome (NOT!) plot twists) was not a bad merchandise to have. Except here instead of using his ship to blast Ash and Manaphy off, Phantom gets swept up to the Temple platform and May tells him to give up. And Phantom was almost gonna take May and Pikachu hostage before Super Ash (*stifles laughter*) came and saves them (what's new...).

    Overall, I rate it 7.5/10 and my movie preference ranking: 9 > 7 > 8 > 6. I never watched any of the earlier movies, I only play their games.

    P.S: in the Rocket Magazine, above the Team Rocket picture shows some Rangers legs. I know that the one with the shoes is Jackie. Is the one with knee high socks Solana?

    This is the start of a brand new journey...

    What kinds of plot twists did it have?

    We need to know the most important thing still:
    How long did May stay in her swimsuit for?

    Granted a guide can only so much, but from what I've read I gotta say I like it.

    True there are some past movie similarities, but Haruka's relationship with Manaphy seems much more emotional than Masato and Jirachi's and I think that fact alone will help me love it. Another thing I liked about this movie were the amount of times Jackie expresses worry over Haruka and Manaphy's relationship.

    In the sixth movie Haruka was concerned, but unlike Jackie, she never tried to say "Ok, we need to break this up", even if Jackie didn't exactly intend it to be mean. For him to act that way (right down to talking behind her back about it) seemed much more realistic to me. I also really enjoy the whole underwater city deal. I'm a big Atlantis freak, so that worked well with me. xD

    *sigh* Now just gotta wait till the movie comes out. Some of the final scenes sound like they'll be really good to watch.

    Yep, true! And Brendan appears again! (in a cameo as usual) when will he get a main position?

    Let me ask you guys something....


    This is about the anime, but it's on-topic.


    As you know, CN has showed new episodes of Pokemon Battle Frontier Monday to Thursday, for, what, the past 3 weeks now?


    Either way... by now, I believe it's past the episode(s) that need to show so that this movie can come out. (Then again, Destiny Deoxys was an exception, but still)

    This is probably a stupid question... but does that mean this movie will come out on DVD soon?

    Thanks.

    So the english versoin of the movies title is very simular to the japanese title. The question is how well are they going to dub the movie since basing on they just revealed the title. Also the first movie to use the new dub voices should be interesting to see.

    So my guess is Diaruga wasn't in the movie at all?

    Thank God Diaruga wasn't in, I say. Especially considering how Kyogre got gypped. Too many legendaries = Overkill. Save him for Movie 10.

    Some pics are now up on the main site it seems.

    Ash has become Super Sonic! The Manaphy scenes are cute, and Phantom drowning in a vortex of Remoraid is funny.

    I agree with you on that, and this movie had at four of them, Rayquaza who got captured by some scientists in the early preview (Frankly I would find that a more interesting movie to follow.) Manaphy, Kyogre (Who got all of 5 minutes worth of screne time and was confused by a ship to boot.), and Zapdos (Who got ringged by the Ranger.)

    REally, they should have stuck with Manaphy alone.

    Right and wrong are not what separate us and our enemies. It's our different standpoints, our perspectives that separate us. Both sides blame one another. There's no good or bad side. Just two sides holding different views.

    These newer movies aren't really appealing to me. the first 5 movies were pretty good in my opinion but the newer ones just suck in my opinion. They're about the pintsized legendaries and their dumb bonds. The Deoxys one sucked the most in my opinion because 1. There really wasn't a bad guy just a mistaken one. and 2. Legendaries are taken down by an army of floating blocks.The first 5 were good because they actually had a true enemy and the legendaries actually kind of lived up to their reputations. thats just me though

    Thought so, just wasnted to clear that up.

    From the pictures it does seem like a nice movie, and I am getting a Movie 6 vibe here. The Ash v Phantom 'battle' does look nice though. The art style seems a cut above previous movies too.

    One question: Does Phantom die?

    **Yet another comment at wasted Kyogre potential** There wasn't even "Drizzle" in effect??

    **Yet another comment at how Brock did nothing spectacular**

    I can't wait to see more of the pokemon-in-large-crowds pictures as well as the actual performance the troupe, uh.... performed.

    Edit: and DAANG! Tamanta's one big baby! @____@;;;
