Pokemon.com: Manaphy and Movie Details Revealed!
As promised, the official Pokemon website at www.pokemon.com
revealed more information on Manaphy today. The secret code needed to unlock the Manaphy mission in Pokemon Ranger wasn't revealed (it will be revealed later this month at the official Pokemon site). However, the official US title for the 9th Pokemon movie was revealed: Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea (the Japanese title was: Pokemon Ranger and the Prince of the Sea). The official site listed Spring 2007 as the release date for the movie (which is the same date we've known for quite a while now). You can read the announcement from the official Pokemon website below:
Manaphy Makes Its Appearance
The newest Pokemon to make a splash is Manaphy, star of the upcoming movie, Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea, which is scheduled for release this spring! We don't have a lot of information about Manaphy just yet, but we can tell you this - you won't be able to get it by just playing through Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl!
First, you'll have to access a special Ranger Net mission in Pokemon Ranger. This special mission will send you on a quest to search for the Manaphy Egg. Once you clear the mission, you'll be asked to guard the Manaphy egg. You cannot hatch or raise Manaphy in Pokemon Ranger! You can send the egg to Pokemon Diamond and/or Pokemon Pearl, where you can then hatch and raise Manaphy!
Check back later this month for more details on the Manaphy egg mission, including the secret code needed to unlock the special Manaphy mission!
