Legends tell that whoever wears the Sea Crown will be called the King of the Sea. Phantom the pirate desires the treasure and will stop at nothing to acquire it, and to do so he must obtain a Manaphy egg; for it is said that the Manaphy knows the way to the Temple of the Sea, where the Sea Crown is held. With the help of a special Pokemon Ranger - a person dedicated to protecting Pokemon and nature - Ash, Brock, May and Max will try to keep the Manaphy safe and stop Phantom from carrying out his plans!
Legends tell of a floating island in the sky known as Laputa, upon which is rumoured to be treasure beyond a person’s wildest dreams.

One day she is saved by Pazu, a miner apprentice and also an orphan, and together they set out to escape from her would-be captors. Unfortunately, their friendship must go through endless trials in their quest to hide Laputa's location. What is Sheeta’s mysterious legacy, and what hidden motives do Sheeta’s enemies have in regards to finding Laputa?
This particular Pokemon movie reminded me of Castle in the Sky, mostly because both involve people searching for some legendary anchient ruins that contain some sort of treasure. Both are family friendly movies that contain a mix of adventure and whimzy. Castle in the Sky is definately the better of the two, but if you like one, you will probably find at least some enjoyment in the other.
