It's good-bye to an old friend, and hello to a new one in the biggest adventure of Ash's life!
When Professor Oak sends Ash on a mission to the Orange Islands, surprises await the young Pokémon trainer at every turn.
One member of Ash's team will say good-bye forever, maybe. A stranger will join the posse. But who is he really? And a gentle new Pokémon called Lapras is discovered -- only it may perish without Ash's help.
