Manaphy (Japanese: マナフィ Manaphy) is a Water-type legendary Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. Manaphy has the unusual ability to breed, despite being a legendary Pokémon. It is also unusual in that its offspring are Phione, which do not evolve into Manaphy.

It is a member of the sea guardians with Phione.

Manaphy was the last Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex before the Platinum expansion.

Biology

Physiology

Manaphy is a small, blue, aquatic Pokémon. It has stubby feet and club-like arms that are longer than its body. Manaphy has a red gem on its chest, and a yellow dot below the gem. Manaphy has an onion-shaped head with a pair of long blue antennae, which have small spheres on the end. Manaphy’s irises are dark blue, although the outermost portions of its eyes are yellow, with two yellow dots of “eyebrow” markings extending from the eyes. Eighty percent of Manaphy's body is made of water and is highly susceptible to its environment. One of these reactions is that when Manaphy reproduces in an ocean that's warmer than those that they are native to, the child will be a Phione as opposed to another Manaphy.

Gender differences

Manaphy is a genderless species.

Special abilities

Due to Manaphy's high water content in its body, it can heal itself whenever it is raining. Manaphy can control water and focus it into attacks such as Water Pulse and BubbleBeam. Manaphy can also switch the perspective of people, and Pokémon, with each other, by using its signature move, Heart Swap. It can also melt into water, much like Phione and Vaporeon. Manaphy is able to recall its birthplace as well.

Behavior

Due to the presence of the special Egg, most portrayals of Manaphy are newborns with a childlike demeanor. Manaphy has been observed to be playful, similar to the behaviors of Mew, Celebi and Jirachi.

Habitat

Manaphy appears to be native to the cold oceans of the Fiore region, but cannot hatch there, instead usually only being able to be hatched in the Sinnoh, Kanto or Johto regions.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Major appearances

A Manaphy Egg in the anime

Manaphy is the star of the ninth movie, Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea. It is initially an Egg that an evil gang and its leader wants to steal. Manaphy hatches in May's hands and helps the People of the Water to find the Samiya. It is known as the Prince of the Sea. It was mentioned in Up Close and Personable! but not seen.

A Manaphy appears in the intro of Pikachu's Ocean Adventure.

A Manaphy appears in the intro of The Rise of Darkrai and Arceus and the Jewel of Life.

In the manga

Manaphy in the manga adaptation of Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea

In the W Mission Story: Pokémon Ranger - the Comic manga

In the manga W Mission Story: Pokémon Ranger - the Comic, Cameron from Summerland found Manaphy's Egg on Fiore's Sea. Then, it was stolen by the Go-Rock Squad, who wanted to use its enormous powers for bad purposes when it hatched. This plan failed when Solana and Lunick saved the Egg and it was given to a Trainer who lives in Sinnoh.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Manaphy appears as a silhouette in the Emerald chapter of the Pokémon Adventures manga. Guile Hideout plans to use a fake Kyogre created by Jirachi to find Manaphy, although the reason he is targeting it is unknown.

At the very end of the Platinum chapter, Manaphy's Egg was sent from Fiore to Diamond and Pearl, who hatched it. Later, a Phione Egg appeared by Manaphy at the Pokémon Day Care in Solaceon.

In the Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea manga

Other appearances

Manaphy on Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

When released from a Poké Ball, Manaphy uses Heart Swap, which temporarily switches the body of the user with another player. KO's count for the player in control, not the character's normal player, preventing easy KOs via suicide.

Trophy Information

"A Seafaring Pokémon. Eighty percent of its body is made of water. It has the ability Hydration, which allows it to restore status effects at the end of the turn if it's raining. It is the only Pokémon who can use the stat-effect-swapping move called Heart Swap. Place a Manaphy and a Ditto in the Pokémon Day Care, and they will produce a Phione egg."

Trivia

A Manaphy Egg
  • Manaphy's English name was uncovered, alongside the English name of Sinnoh, within the internal data of Pokémon Ranger on November 2, 2006.
  • Jirachi and Manaphy are the only legendary Pokémon to have not been given an in-game location in the main series as of yet. Manaphy is also the only Pokémon that cannot be found in a main series game.
  • Manaphy is also the only event Pokémon to date that debuted in a spin-off game rather than in the main series.
  • Manaphy is actually lighter and smaller than Phione.
  • Manaphy and Ditto are the only Pokémon that are both able to breed and unobtainable through breeding.
  • Manaphy and Phione are the only legendary Pokémon capable of producing Eggs in a Day Care legitimately.
  • Manaphy and Heatran have the lowest Egg cycles of all legendary Pokémon, with only 11 cycles.
  • Although normally genderless, in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, Manaphy is constantly referred to as a male.
  • In Manaphy's Platinum Pokédex entry, it says that it can connect with the heart of any Pokémon using a special power it possesses from birth, which is a reference to Manaphy's signature move, Heart Swap. However, Manaphy actually can't learn this move until level 76.
  • In the games, Manaphy is the only Pokémon whose Egg sprite is different than the standard sprite.
  • Manaphy's title, "The Prince of the Sea", may be a reference to the sea butterfly. Another name for the sea butterfly is Thecosomata, which means "sluglike angel of the sea."
  • It is nearly impossible to get a Shiny Manaphy. Most Mystery Gifted Pokémon are coded so that if the personality value generated for the Pokémon is one that would make it Shiny under the Trainer it is given to, the personality value is regenerated until it ends up not Shiny. However, transferring in a Manaphy Egg via Mystery Gift will only cause the Egg's generated value to be checked against the current Trainer ID number and Secret ID number. Thus, on trading to another game, with a different Trainer ID and Secret ID, the Manaphy has a chance at hatching Shiny.
  • Manaphy is the lightest Water-type Pokémon.

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Manaphy may be based on sea angels, tiny transparent ocean mollusks. The Manaphy Egg's design is similar to Turritopsis nutricula.

Name origin

Manaphy may be a combination of mana and a shortening of fairy.
