Opening animation


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.

The world will sing along lan-la-la-la-la

Riding on Lapras
Let's find it!
The continuing story no one knows

Even if it's cloudy
Even if it's freezing
I don't care about your smiling
Even if I want to cry
Even through long nights
I can still hear your friendly voice

Let's go everywhere while counting the stars
Let's wipe our tears lan-la-la-la-la
Let's go faster lan-la-la-la-la

Riding on Lapras
Let's find it!
The continuing story no one knows

Riding on Lapras
Let's find it!
Today is just the beginning of our recent birth
Lan-lan-lan-la-la lan-lan-lan-la-la
Lan-lan-lan-la-la lan-lan-lan-la-la
