As Ash and co. head to New Bark Town to register for the Johto League/Silver Conference, Brock notices a girl heading to the bay. She is apparently researching Lapras nearby and one of the Lapras notices Ash and heads toward him. It was the very same Lapras Ash had during his adventures in the Orange Islands. The scientist, later revealed to be Naomi, also has a gift for Ash from Professor Elm. Apparently it is a Pokémon Egg that seems to have come out of nowhere. Can Ash help Naomi with the Egg and the Lapras?
