Plot[edit]

Nobita declares to Gian and the others that he will find a treasure island, so Doraemon pulls out a treasure hunting map to help. The map points to a new island that suddenly appears in the Pacific Ocean.

Nobita and friends head to the island on a ship they name the Nobita Aura, but are attacked by pirates before they can get there! They face the enemy, but during the battle Shizuka is taken on the pirate ship! After the pirates escape, Nobita and the others find a boy called Flock and a robot parrot named Quiz drifting at sea. Flock is a mechanic who escaped from the pirates, and he knows an important secret about the treasure island!

Can Nobita rescue Shizuka from the pirates? And, what is the secret hidden in the treasure on treasure island?!
