Jack Walker (Japanese: ジャック・ウォーカー Jack Walker), also known as Jackie (Japanese: ジャッキー Jackie), is a major character who appeared in Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea. He is a Rank 9 Pokémon Ranger.

In the movies

A young Jack Walker

Jack decided to become a Pokémon Ranger after being saved from a blizzard by a group of wild Pokémon. As such, he takes his duties seriously.

Jack was first seen disguised as one of the Phantom's crew members, a role he had been in for months. When The Phantom originally secured the Manaphy Egg, Jack snatched it and brought the Egg out of submarine by capturing and swimming away on a Mantine.

He was later seen disguised as a clown traveling with the Marina Group. When Team Rocket stole the Egg, Jackie captured a Fearow and revealed his identity to Ash and his friends. He revealed to them his plan to safely hatch the Egg and deliver Manaphy to the Sea Temple, Samiya. As the crew headed towards Samiya, Jack was shown to be on the lookout for The Phantom, using his binoculars to search for him. He also showed concern about May's relationship with Manaphy, knowing they were getting too attached as it was Manaphy's destiny to leave them for the Sea Temple.

When they reached Samiya, Jack learned that they were being followed The Phantom. Jack swam down to Samiya on a Mantyke, fearing for the safety of Manaphy who had already headed down to Samiya. By the time he reached Samiya, The Phantom had already removed several of the Sea Crown's crystals, causing the Sea Temple to sink. He fought the pirate captain and reattached two of the crystals, but he was unable to secure the last crystal. As the Temple continued to sink, Jack used Phantom's personal sub to get away from the sinking Temple. He later took May, Brock, Max, and Lizabeth on the personal sub as they attempted to thwart The Phantom's plan.

In the ending credits, Jack captured and hitched a ride on a Zapdos.

Jack briefly reappeared in a montage in The Rise of Darkrai, which chronicled the preceding nine movies.


Jack is an athletic young man. While his role often puts him into unconventional and bad situations, he accepts that this is part of the job. As a Pokémon Ranger, he is required to be quick on his feet and set on the mission at hand. However, Jack came into conflict, initially when Ash and his friends witnessed Manaphy hatch, and later with May after she became too attached to Manaphy. He was able to compromise his strong stance, inviting Ash and his friends along, and was able to fulfill the mission.

Jack has an affable personality and can often got caught up in his banter with his mission coordinator, Judy. The Marina Group also appreciated his assistance as a temporary member of their performers troupe.


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

None of Casey's moves are known.

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 character introduced in a movie appeared in the anime arc, with the exception of Sammy, who appeared in the series to begin with.
  • His surname, Walker, might be a reference to the popular television show Walker, Texas Ranger.
