[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

In Generation IV, an Egg can be transferred from any of the Pokémon Ranger games to obtain a Manaphy. This Egg can be obtained by completing specific Ranger Net missions that were only available for a specific time period.

In the original Pokémon Ranger game, the mission to complete is called "Retrieve the Important Egg: Manaphy!", and involves defeating a number of Team Go-Go members. The Ranger Net mission is called "Recover the Manaphy Egg" in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, and "Protect the Blue Sphere!" in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs.

[edit] Spin-Off Games

A Manaphy Egg can be found at Surrounded Sea in Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky. After completing The Nightmare, Manaphy can be recruited at Sharpedo Bluff.

Manaphy can be found at Desolated Ruins Beach 3-1 in Pokémon Rumble Blast after meeting 20 people.

[edit] Trading Card Game

Manaphy is listed in the 9th Movie Halfedck, the 10th Movie Commemoration Set, the Pokémon Card Game set (5), and Pokémon Organized Play Series 6 and Pokémon Organized Play Series 9 as a Rare Card. Manaphy is listed as a Rare Card in the Diamond and Pearl & Unleashed sets.

[edit] Other Games

Manaphy also makes an appearance out of a Poké Ball in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. When it appears, it uses Heart Swap, which causes the combatants on the field to switch bodies temporarily. While the score, damage and remaining lives remain the same, you'll have access to an opponents' attacks, maybe even a Final Smash if Manaphy's appearance coincides with a Smash Ball appearing.

[edit] Anime/Manga

[edit] Anime

Manaphy has yet to appear in a TV Episode of the Anime as of writing.

[edit] Movies

Manaphy takes on a starring role in Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea, as a villain known as The Phantom would attempt to harness Manaphy's powers for his own notorious ends, but would be thwarted thanks to the help of Ash, May, Max, Brock and a variety of other Water Pokémon, including the Legendary Pokémon Kyogre.

Manaphy also makes appearances in The Rise of Darkrai and Arceus and the Jewel of Life.

[edit] Manga

Manaphy's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Manaphy finds itself in the Uber Tier of Competitive Battling with thanks to its Ability Hydration, which makes it a great teammate with Kyogre, who causes it to rain with its Drizzle Ability, which frees up a moveslot as it won't need to use Rain Dance to activate its Ability.

Shutting down its Rain support will work well, as this prevents it from making use of its Ability, and strong Grass or Electric moves will bring it down.
