After being lulled to sleep by Jigglypuff, Ash and Misty's blimp crashed into Pokémon Park. At the time, they thought they may have been stranded on a deserted island. Misty then worried that they would have to eat bugs for the rest of their lives. Suddenly, a group of tourists appeared, causing Ash to wish that the island they were on really was deserted.
They soon learned, via a public address announcement, that Pokémon Park is an amusement park, and a very popular destination for tourists in the Orange Islands.
