The story starts out when Tails gets a reading from a Chaos Emerald while Sonic is far away trying to get an Emerald himself. In an attempt to beat Eggman to it, Tails decides it would be best to go after it by himself, located in the small town of Acme Acres. Meanwhile, Plucky Duck has dragged Buster Bunny out to a nearby hill in an attempt to get rich by finding a UFO that supposedly flies by every few years.
While Tails is using his tails to get an aerial view for the Chaos Emerald, Plucky spots him and mistakes the fox for an alien. After being nailed by his slingshot, Tails falls to the ground, crashing into a paint stand, white paint flying everywhere and ending up giving him the appearance of a skunk. Dazed and confused, he stumbles over to Acme Acres junkyard...
