Pokemon: Arceus and the Jewel of Life is a 2009 animated film based on the popular Pokemon franchise. The movie revolves around Arceus, the powerful and legendary pokemon that created everything in the world, including Dialga and Palkia, the pokemon that control time and space respectively. The movie starts with Ash, Dawn, and Brock traveling through the beautiful countryside of Michina Town, where they encounter a mysterious woman named Sheena. Sheena has the power to communicate with pokemon and is on a mission to prevent the destruction of her town. She tells the trio about an ancient legend that describes a time when Arceus, the pokemon god, had given a part of its power to a group of humans. But, the humans later betrayed Arceus, and the enraged god wanted to destroy everything. Dialga and Palkia intervened, and the sacred Jewel of Life was used to restore peace.

Soon after, everyone discovers that a greedy businessman named Marcus plans to excavate the temple on Michina Town where the Jewel of Life is believed to be kept. This excavation will anger Arceus, and once again, the world will be in danger. Ash and Sheena decide to stop Marcus and protect Arceus from further harm.

As the story progresses, various other legendary pokemon such as Giratina and Shaymin, are introduced, each of which has unique abilities and personalities. The plot thickens as the characters continue their quest to find the Jewel of Life. They also try to communicate with Arceus, who is angry and resentful due to the betrayal of humans, and is on the verge of attacking the town.

The movie reaches its climax as Ash, Dawn, Brock, and Sheena work together to save the town and prevent Arceus from causing destruction.
