Debut The Princess and the Togepi

The Mirage Kingdom (Japanese: ミラージュ王国 Mirage Kingdom), or simply Mirage, is an anime-exclusive kingdom located in Hoenn, beyond a large desert situated between Mauville City and Fallarbor Town.

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.

In The Princess and the Togepi, Misty was kidnapped by Team Rocket and taken to Mirage Kingdom on the orders of Colonel Hansen, a ruthless kingdom official who wanted to steal her Togepi and use it to take over the kingdom. Ash and his friends sneaked aboard the blimp and entered the Mirage Kingdom as well. Despite their attempts to intervene, Colonel Hansen gained possession of Misty's Togepi in A Togepi Mirage! and ascended to the throne.

However, Princess Sara, her maid Miranda, Team Rocket (who helped Hansen but then he betrayed them), 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.
