Here's where you can discuss the somewhat-unorthodox premiere of the 9th Pokemon movie on Cartoon Network, "Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea"

.........Whoops.

Compared to the others, it's quite funny. From Manaphy smashing into the glass window to Jackie swinging Phantom around. My favorite line thus far:

Jessie: "That crusty old crab thinks he's so smart, when we're poised to pocket those diamonds and pearls!"
Meowth: "Hey, dat sounds like a good name for a game!"

L. O. L.

The Diamond and Pearl joke was probably the best one in the whole movie.

"I'm ready for some diamonds and pearls!"
"Let's make it through this season first."

You beat me by two whole minutes. Shakes fist. Fine, but I'm taking the D/P movie one, darn it.

Anyway, deleting my thread and commenting briefly: finally a real villain, with actual Pokemon (a Bug theme, hmm).

Although, the Bashou, Buson, and Shiranui cameo blindsided me most.

Loved it, especially Lizabeth, she's hot!It was full of cameos and DP jokes, and Ash+May shipping, great movie.

Despite it being on Cartoon Network of all places, I thought it was rather good. We finally get a villain who has a set plan, acts on it and actually HAS pokemon. Some nice camos from D/P, considering I havn't really looked at any of them on other sites. All in all a pretty good movie, all that remains is to grab a torrent of the sub.

Let's hope that the next one will continue the above average trend that has been going on since the 7th movie.

Is it just me, but did Brock have another voice change? He sounded VERY weird at the beginning of the movie.

Wow, I have to say that's probably the best Pokemon Movie I've seen. And... possibly the longest. Maybe it was just due to the commercials, but it seemed longer then the others. I found myself laughing out loud at several parts, like the D/P joke. And I loved all the Advanceshipping hints. The storyline seemed pretty weel developed, and the graphics were amazing. I would have liked to see some more Kyorgre... but thats all right. And, did I mention how hot May was in that bikini?

One thing bugged me. What. Is. Up. With. Swellow's. Voice!? That really irked me, but other then that I loved the movie.

EDIT: I forgot the other thing I didn't like. May being closed up in that pod is just... no. Shes in this little pod under lots of water, how bad is that? What if Ash had failed, she would have died then? And I know I couldn't do it, since I'm a little claustraphobic.

I saw part of it I was kind of zoning in and out of the movie when I saw a another of my favorite pokemon movies on HBO Family The Destiny Deoxys One ^-^ I have'nt seen it in a long time. But I plan to see the movie tommorow for sure and record it on my DVR so I can watch it over again ^-^.

Captain Arcane

Okay, after watching it 2 times, I had the chance to notice any stupid things, which I kinda have. K, theres a part where ash asks who the pirate is, and Jakie(the pokemon ranger) replies something like "He's Phantom the Pirate", then he says the most unnessesary thing right after that and this is the complete quote "He's Phantom, the Pirate, hes one mean dude. .............X_X DUDE, what the.... Know, I know some of you people are gonna think different, but I thought that was horrible. I think dude was the worst choice of a word. Know the last thing................... Why does Ash fly at the end of EVERY movie? I know there are some where he doesn't fly, but many have him flying around as if he's peter pan. Know, there is a fine line between fantasy and reality, but every time I see him fly.... thats when it crosses the line for me. Know, this still is one of my favorite movies, but enouph with the FLYING, its getting really old and rediculous.

And that people, is what grinds my gears. =P (quote from family guy movie)

Yeah pokémon ranger and the temple of the sea is one of the best pokémon movies i've seen! ^^ The phantom is an ultimate bad guy, best bad guy ever! he had the power with his Mega Suit or watever they call it in the english dub cause i've only seen the jap dub, english dub i've yet to see....but i saw a short clip of the english dub on youtube ^^

*WARNING-Possible Spoilers*





Loved it, especially Lizabeth, she's hot!It was full of cameos and DP jokes, [S-HIGHLIGHT]and Ash+May shipping[/S-HIGHLIGHT], great movie.

That actually bugged me a bit through the whole movie. First there's that obscure pun with the Luvdisc (I doubt most people caught that, though), then May cheering Ash on...not really meant as an Advanceshipping hint, true, but can still be taken that way...but then they made the realization at the end. Supposedly, Ash was flying because he had obtained the Sea Crown, making him King of the Sea. And Manaphy, the Prince of the Sea, believed May to be its mother, which in relation would make her Queen of the Sea, wouldn't it? So..........um, yeah...

Don't take me the wrong way. I actually prefer ContestShipping over AdvanceShipping (seems more canon to the anime itself), but this...

.................

And I'm surprised nobody's made the more obvious joke about Manaphy's crying early on in the movie...

that it was just hungry :I *is shot*

I liked the movie. The Special Effects were awesome. The Diamod and Pearl jokes were the 2nd best part.

The best part was seeing May in that Bikini! I swear she has boobs that rival Pam Anderson's! :D

I thought it was pretty good, to be honest. Pirates, Pokemon and not-so-subliminal advertisements (which is par for the course with Pokemon). If LittleKuribo ever decides to do a Pokemon Abridged series, I'm sure he'll reference this in the movie parody. Overall, it was a good send off for Max and May, ending their saga (as far as the Anime goes) with a movie.

It kinda made me think of my Captain N in Pokemon Fic. Now if only Mother Brain and Simon Belmont were in Pokemon...

You forgot when Ash put May in that capsule. I mean when he actually put her in there, not while she was in there. That was sorta shippy too. Heh, I hadn't noticed the part about May being Queen of the Sea, thats pretty cool.

You do? I didn't know you liked any shipping *brick'd* Hehe, I used to be all CS, but this is starting to turn me into an Advanceshipper.

Eh, not too much. I remember reading a review of the Japanese version on (I think) Serebii and it said something about the two of them looking in each other's eyes at that point...but there was nothing of the sort. Meh.

I didn't say I liked it. I just prefer the idea.

One thing I always like about the movies is the animation, and fact that movements are sooo much better in the movies, as well as camera angles.
I really loved the intro, with Jackie stealing the egg, I found it really amusing to watch... and again, loved the movements.

The movie in general wasn't my favorite Pokemon movie, but I did really enjoy it! ...I want to own it now!

I also loved the Team Rocket Heart-Swap, however, I liked that part better in Japanese... it was just more amusing that way for some reason.

Oh, and Manaphy was really adorable. I have to admit that I don't care for it too much, but it had a cute voice. x3

...and Jackie was awesomness.

D'OH! How could I forget about the hilariousness of their most recent botched motto attempt? Of course, the D/P "fourth wall" jokes were still the best, but this was a close second.

Captain Arcane

I think my favourite funny part was when team rocket got their minds swapped. ^_^ hahahahaha, jessie being meoth was extremely funny, comlpaining about her know short legs because she was meoth!

But Phantom is the best villin yet. He doesn't give up on things, unlike other villins. Hes mean and green to the core.....he's a great example of what a pirate is suposed to be!! ^_^ It would of been nice though if he had a sword, and drew it out to fight Jackie, when he was returning the crystals to the crown. But ohwell.. Great Movie ^_^

Drew
March 24th, 2007, 02:35 PM
Lol Phantom sort of annoyed me, but he did make for a good villain.

The only part of the movie that really bugged me at all was the end, where Ash was zooming around covered in that yellow energy... thing. >>; They could've done something better for that part, I believe.

March 24th, 2007, 05:14 PM
Okay, I have seen this movie yesterday and I like it a lot. The way the Captain Phantom traveled by a torpedo was funny. It was also funny when he got crushed. I forgot what were those things he was wearing that gave him super strength. Jackie words did made me smile with humor.

Just finished watching, the movie was pretty good. very good opening with Jackie who all around was a very good character threw out the whole movie. Then Phantom was a very good movie villain, must say he was one of my favs threw out the pokemon movies. i don't think i could complain about the movie really, in my opionon it was a nice well rounded movie: had its funny parts, had the pick ups and the down drafts that every movie has. was well worth the wait for this movie, now we can wait for D/P to come out :D

Yep i agree with you ^^ the Phantom was the best villian yet! he had the power which was his Mega Suit which made him very strong, loved how the phantom used puns he always thought up "there are two types of men in this world, those who get crushed and those who do the crushing!" lol

He used similar puns throughout the movie, i found that one the funniest 'cause it was the bit where he was holding the part of his ship falling on him after it got destroyed ^^;

Oh, The Phantom with a sword? that would of been cool and i drew him with one! ^^; glad u mentioned it heres a link to my drawing of him ^^;

I agree totally with that~ it made me laugh. x3 hilarious~

Anyways! I thought this movie was really awesome actually. It was really fun and enjoyable to watch. The end part was a little silly (the yellow light king thingies) But it was nice and dramatic. lol.

I don't think Ash and May make the cutest couple... imo... But, it's all good, there were a few hints in there...~

Nice movie overall~ my 3rd favorite i think! ^.^

And i loved Jackie, lol, and his voice~ fit him perfectly xD

OMG! That was another one of my peeves I forgot. His voice was alright most of the time, but ocasionaly it started to sound like Captain Zap Branagin from Futurama. So erm yeah, that was another thing I didn't like.

Excellent! I've now seen 1-3 & 9, and I think this is the best that I've seen. Although it was a bit long... and technically speaking, since I got it from a torrent, it didn't look quite right... But as a movie, it blew my expectations away. Now it's time to catch up on the rest of the movies - thank God for libraries! XD
The Diamond and Pearl joke was probably the best one in the whole movie.

"I'm ready for some diamonds and pearls!"

I don't remember that one.

I actually sort of liked the Advanceshipping hints (Agh! Don't hurt me Drew (the member)! XD) and I'm glad that it wasn't over done. They could have easily made it really Advanceshippy, and that wouldn't have been good. At all. But then again the movie wouldn't have been the same without hte shippyness.

March 26th, 2007, 02:38 PM
I'm not like way into shipping, but I prefer Advanceshipping over Pokeshipping or Contestshipping. Those two just seem more compatible to me. So, I thought the shippy hints in the movie were cute, especially when they were swimming through the Luvdisc. I also thought the way Ash looked at May when she was so concerned about Manaphy was also really sweet. I didn't get to see it all so what did Manaphy's goodbye at the end get translated like? (I saw the Japanese version on the computer before) Cause the syllables wouldn't match up. 7 syllables versus 3 is a biiiiiigg difference

...

(Whew, that was a big block of text. And a lot of run-on sentences. That was a fragment. So was that. I'mma stop now. o_O)

Just kidding but it did get very advanceshippy afterward
