Synopsis

Inside an empty room a painting hangs on the wall, on the painting is a picture of Ash, Tracey, Misty, Togepi and Pikachu riding on Lapras. The painting is moving, and depicts the group riding Lapras throughout the Orange Islands. As they ride across the ocean Charizard flies overhead breathing fire. Night soon falls, and the group falls asleep on Lapras' shell. They fail to notice Jigglypuff and Psyduck floating by on balloons. Day comes again and everybody wakes up, as the shot zooms out we see that they're floating across a giant circle in the shape of a yin yang symbol. The shot continues to zoom out until the circle is replaced by the TV Tokyo logo.

ふねがなくても
およげなくても
きみをよんだら たびははじまるのさ
みちがなくても
あてがなくても
きみがいるから ちずはひろがるのさ
かぜをおいこし どこまでもいこう
くちぶえふけば ランララララ
ちきゅうもうたう ランララララ
ラプラスにのって さがしにいこう!
だれもしらない ものがたりのつづき
ランランランララ
Even if there's no boat
Even if I can't swim
Upon calling you, the journey can begin
Even if there's no road
Even if there's no destination
Because you're here, the map will open for us
Let's go wherever while passing through the wind
If we whistle lan-la-la-la-la
The world will sing along lan-la-la-la-la
Riding on Lapras, let's seek out!
It's the continuing saga of an unknown story
Lan-lan-lan-la-la

Even if it's cloudy
Even if it's freezing cold
As long as you have that smile, nothing else would matter
Even if I want to cry
Even through long nights
Since I can still hear your friendly voice
Let's go wherever while counting the stars
Let's wipe those tears, lan-la-la-la-la
Let's go faster, lan-la-la-la-la
Riding on Lapras, let's seek out!
It's the continuing saga of an unknown story

Riding on Lapras, let's seek out!
The newly-born today is just the beginning
Lan-lan-lan-la-la lan-lan-lan-la-la
