An idyllic town is thrown into chaos when two powerful Pokémon, Dialga and Palkia, cross paths and battle, distorting the dimensions of time and space. The only hope comes from Darkrai, a shadowy Pokémon shunned by the townsfolk.
Our heroes must protect the Prince of the Sea, Manaphy, from the evil pirate Phantom, and return the young Pokémon to the Sea Temple with the help of the the People of the Water and Jackie the Pokémon Ranger.
Arceus, creator of the world, comes to pass judgement on humanity for the theft of the Jewel of Life, but Ash Ketchum and his friends are sent back in time to discover and possible reverse the events that led to Arceus' vendetta.
An evil genius in a flying fortress is trying to kidnap the birds of the fire, ice, and lightning islands in hopes of luring the sea power, Lugia, and controlling the world. Ash and his friends, in the process of carrying out an island tradition that requires visiting those three islands, discover the plot and try to stop it. Even the comic villains, Team Rocket, turn good and help out in the end against the threat of world destruction.

Japanese trailers for the movie contain scenes that are never used in the final cut, not even in the Japanese version. For example, the scene of Pikachu, Fushigadane (Bulbasaur), Zenigame (Squirtle), Lizardon (Charizard), and others watching the water current with the rainbow in the sky. Another scene where Freezer (Articuno), Thunder (Zaptos), and Fire (Moltres) shoot the ground, blasting the Pokémon including Pikachu, Satoshi (Ash) jumps of a cliff to save Pikachu, Kasumi (Misty) cries for Satoshi and attempts to save him, but Kenji (Tracey) stops her as Hanako (Mrs. Ketchum) is standing by wasn't used in the film, but a mirror shot of Satoshi diving did appear on the back of American soundtrack. Finally, the shot of Satoshi and Pikachu riding on the bow of the speedboat on the way to an island wasn't used in the film, but it did appear on the back of the VHS and DVD box. See more »

I'll do whatever it takes to get that third treasure. But, what if I mess up? What if... I...
You can do it.
We know you can.
Yeah, you're right. I can do it. I'm the Chosen One.

Right now I feel more the frozen one.

Maybe they got the wrong Ash.

Team Rocket emerge from the water partly into the credits, upset that no one will know of their good-doings, but Slowking appears and shows that the film's audience has just seen them do good. See more »
I for one, and seeing on the internet I am pleased that there are others that are still unashamed pokemon fans out there It really has been so long since I saw the film. I saw the first and loved it and loved this one first, if this one had come out first then the fan base would've remained stronger and not cut the fans in half.
Half leaving and half staying. New Pokemon were brought in this film, they came in the first one as well and then after this there were so many it got ridiculous.
But as someone hoping to be a filmmaker one day, I plan to make a pokemon film for the devoted unashamed fans just to stand up for us, and put us all to rest.
I love the animation in this film, I love Lugias song. I thought it was funny and moving. I better grab this and the first on DVD before the disappear in obscurity
