==HistoryIn the movies==
[[File:Manaphy Egg anime.png|thumb|left|250px|As an Egg]]
Manaphy first appeared as an {{pkmn|Egg}}. It was swimming underwater and landed on a {{p|Mantyke}}. The Manaphy Egg was spotted by [[The Phantom]] and his pirate crew. Phantom took the Egg using the submarine's mechanical arm and brought it to his ship. [[Jack Walker]] took the Egg from the pirates as he had a mission to protect it and escaped the submarine with the Egg.
Manaphy was later mentioned in ''[[DP089|Up Close and Personable!]]''. It also briefly reappeared in a montage in ''[[M10|The Rise of Darkrai]]'', which chronicled the preceding nine {{pkmn|movie}}s.
===Personality and characteristics===

When Manaphy finally hatched, the first thing it saw was {{an|May}} and thus {{wp|imprinting (psychology)|it thought of her as its mother}}, immediately showing love and affection to her. Manaphy and May soon developed a very close bond, even to the point that May treated it as her own child and Manaphy began learning human words like "love you" and "happy".
However, their bond was affecting Manaphy's goal to find [[Samiya]], so May tried to stay away from Manaphy. They eventually came back to one another and shared one last, tearful hug. Manaphy's final words were "Love. You. May."
