While traveling through the Orange Islands, Ash and friends arrive at legend rich Shamouti Island. There the annual legend festival is beginning and Ash is revealed to be the Chosen One. As a greedy collector disturbs the peace between Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno by capturing them, nature is thrown out of balance with strange storms happening all over the planet, turning the tropical Orange Islands into a winter wonderland. Now Ash must head to Fire, Lighting, and Ice islands and retrieve the three treasures that will calm the fighting Legendary Birds, as well as stop the greedy collector from capturing Lugia, the only pokémon who can help stop the fighting birds. But that is easy said them done with the three fighting Legendary Pokémon determined to stop him.
