Jack Walker (Japanese: ジャック・ウォーカー), or Jackie (Japanese: ジャッキー), is a protagonist in the movie Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea.

In the anime

Jack Walker is an athletic young man who decided to become a Pokémon Ranger after being saved from a blizzard by a group of Altaria, Swablu, Furret, Sentret and Shroomish. As such, he takes his duties seriously.

In the movie, after meeting up with Ash Ketchum and his friends, he decided to team up with them to help protect the Egg containing Manaphy and deliver it to the Sea Temple Samiya. When the Egg hatched and Manaphy became close to May, he showed concern about their relationship, knowing they were getting too attached as it was Manaphy's destiny to leave them for the Sea Temple.


Ash's Chatot
Chatot appears throughout the movie many times next to The Phantom, frequently imitating the pirate's speech. During the credits, it is revealed that Chatot ends up with Jack Walker after the Phantom is imprisoned.

Mantine's only known move is Confuse Ray.

Solana and Jack in Spurt!
  • Most Pokémon Rangers are portrayed as having a "Partner Pokémon" who is with them at all times. Jack Walker was the first Ranger ever shown without one, although it is implied that the Phantom's Chatot may have remained with him after Jack befriended it during the flooding of the temple.
  • All of the Pokémon Jack is known to have captured are part Flying-type.
  • In All That Glitters is Not Golden!, the Japanese opening Spurt! was updated to include Walker and fellow ranger Solana. This was the first time that a human movie character appeared in the anime arc, with the exception of Sammy, who appeared in the series to begin with.
  • As seen in the opening Spurt!, Jack is a Rank 9 Ranger.
  • His surname, Walker, might be a reference to the popular television show Walker, Texas Ranger.
