In The Princess and the Togepi, Misty confronted Princess Sara, her parents, and Miranda, who had her Togepi in their possession. The King quickly realized that the theft of Misty's Togepi was a part of a bigger plot by Colonel Hansen, and sincerely apologized for the disruption. He instructed Miranda to prepare an airship to escort Ash and his friends from the Mirage Kingdom.
In A Togepi Mirage!, Colonel Hansen kidnapped Misty's Togepi, locked the King and Queen away in the dungeon, and ascended to the throne. However, Ash, his friends, and Misty's newly-evolvedTogetic eventually defeated Hansen, and the monarchs were released. The King then ordered Hansen's arrest.
The King obtained a Togepi from the Togepi Paradise in order to be coronated as the King of Mirage Kingdom. Miranda explained that a part of the coronation ceremony involves the Togepi being returned to the Togepi Paradise.
