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.Written by
This was the first Pokemon film to have new dub actors. The only voice to remain the same was Wobbuffet, played by Kayzie Rogers. See more »

I'm so proud of you and all that you've done.
You won't forget me, will you?
Love. You. May.

Goodbye. Love you.
Love you, Mama. Love you, May.

Manaphy was probably the Cutest and Weirdest Pokemon Ever!! :D
Plot Summary: Constantly moving throughout the ocean the Temple of the Sea exists invisible to human eyes. It is here that the Sea Crown exists. Phantom the Pirate has captured the egg of a Manaphy, the only Pokémon able to locate the temple. However, his plans are ruined when Jack Walker, a Pokémon Ranger, interferes. Along the way, Ash Ketchum and his friends manage to get caught up in the adventure to return Manaphy to it's home. But along the way Manaphy and May form a special bond.
By the way, Manaphy's portrayal was loosely based on a human Baby, because Japanese animators wanted something different than American little girls would normally expect, Right?!
Since, Manaphy is still a baby, of course, she'll cry. However It does sound a bit weird since Baby animals rarely fall into such a human niche.
Of course, Little Girls in America, like me wouldn't expect Manaphy's Portrayal to be based on a human baby that way!!
So, If you like Manaphy and It's "Human" baby portrayal, This Pokémon movie is for you!! :D
So bye!! :D
