The isolated kingdom is ruled by a king and queen and worships Togepi, even having a Togepi temple that contains a dimensional portal leading to the Togepi Paradise. The Mirage Kingdom and the Togepi Paradise protect each other's prosperity from individuals with impure hearts. A new ruler ascends to the throne whenever they have possession of a Togepi.
However, Princess Sara, her maid Miranda, Team Rocket (who helped Hansen but was then betrayed by him), and Ash's group fought back. During the final confrontation, Misty's Togepi evolved into Togetic and assumed the role of the Togepi Paradise guardian. With his Pokémon defeated and the king freed from the palace dungeons, Colonel Hansen was arrested and Sara's parents retook the throne. Princess Sara later found her own Togepi, making her eligible to take over the kingdom.
