So, I hatched the Egg today... the Manaphy Egg. Manaphy is Lv.1, it has the Modest nature, and I have no idea what to do with its stats... but the thing that means more to me in the Manaphy itself! Manaphy has always been one of my very favorite Pokemon. I always adored its appearances in my all time favorite game, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Darkness, and in my favorite movie, Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea. Both of those are amazing parts of the Pokemon series that I have the best memories of, ever. Manaphy's appearances were what made me grow to love it, and now I'm raising Manaphy!
I named my Join Avenue "Cold Sea" because "Cold Seafloor" wouldn't fit... I had hoped to hatch Manaphy and have its info page say its birthplace was "Cold Sea"... but it ends up just saying Join Avenue. Still, that doesn't bother me, because Join Avenue is a magical place! ^^
When Manaphy hatched, it was surrounded by the other Pokemon of the sea that my party consisted of, Pokemon like Kingler, Milotic, Corsola, Gyarados, and Lumineon. Pokemon like those can be found in Surrounded Sea, where Manaphy's Egg is found in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Darkness... and, with all this beautiful inspiration, and all the beauty of Pokemon and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, and the oceans of the Pokemon world... it gave birth to my own personal obsession with the ocean!
