Storyline

It all started with a legend passed down from the People of the Water - Somewhere in this world, there is a Sea Temple created by the People of the Water. The Sea Temple contains a hidden treasure called the Sea Crown, but no one has ever seen the Sea Crown, or even the Sea Temple, because the temple is protected by a secret mechanism. The temple drifts through a vast ocean undetected, waiting - waiting... Ash and Pikachu meet Lizabeth, a descendant of the People of the Water, and learn about the legend. They also meet Jackie, a Pokémon Ranger on a secret mission to protect a Manaphy egg (Manaphy is mysteriously known as The Prince of the Sea) and find the Sea Temple as well. The Phantom plans to obtain the Sea Crown and take over the world - but first he needs the Manaphy egg. Now Lizabeth and Ash must help Jackie protect the egg and stop the nefarious pirate.

The Last Really Good Pokemon Movie Before the Series Took a Dip in Quality
16 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

I really like this one and it's another one I find to be underrated. This was the last Pokémon movie of the Hoenn region and the last great one before the quality of the TV show and the movies started to slip.

The story is engaging with Phantom the pirate going after the Temple of the Sea to find the sea crown. I really liked Phantom as a villain. He was quite entertaining and suitably vile. Ranger Jack was a very interesting character, and I thought it was pretty cool for a Pokémon ranger to be a part of the adventure.

I don't care what anybody says. I thought Manaphy was adorable. Her relationship with May was much more appealing than Max's relationship with Jirachi three movies ago. It was nice that May got her own movie.

With the gang journeying to the Temple of the Sea, the film has a great sense of adventure. The scope of the film is epic and the sea temple was a wonder to behold. The animation is as good as ever.

The action in this film is also quite epic, especially the action taking place at the sea temple. The scene where Ash goes to put the crystal back was exciting and the music score used for that scene was simply perfect.

This is another great Pokémon movie. It's too sad that after the Hoenn region, things started to go bad with rehashes of old material and other stuff that just doesn't work. Recommended for fans of the series.

RATING: B+
