"Queen of Blogs"? Say what?
Oh yes, her blog gets some ridiculous number of hits per hour. Apparently 2ch loves her. And, she seems to be sufficiently "big" to have been invited as a guest judge on the most-watched televised music event in Japan.
If a pirate is the bad guy, then those guys in the submarine might be too.
People of the water? This movie feels too Atlantisish. Although, I like Atlantis. :D
Submarine peoples: Bad guy
Kyogre: Flooded a city under water
Manaphy: Protector of the city or something, the thing the people of water look up to
People of the water: Have lost their memory and it is unveiled throughout the movie or something. :p
Pokemon Ranger: Stopping the pirates.
Of course, all of the above will most likely be wrong when the movie finally comes out. :p
2ch is the biggest Japanese BBS on the internet. It's also gone highly mainstream. It's not just some otaku freak site (though that stuff is there too).
