Dolce Island (Japanese: ドロップじま Drop Island) is a location in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs.

It is an island located off the south coast of Renbow Island in the Oblivia region. One of the three major areas of Dolce Island is Southern Beach (Japanese: みなみのはまべ South Beach) which is where the player washes up on shore after crashing into the Western Sea. North of South Beach is Heights (Japanese: たかだい Highgrounds) where the player first meets Ukulele Pichu and Booker. Heights is home to Ukulele Pichu and its friends as well as being the part of Dolce Island where one of the five beacons that need to be activated later in the game is found. Eastern Beach (Japanese: ひがしのはまべ East Beach) is the area closest to Renbow Island. There is a pier on this beach that is used for docking the boat that transports the player to and from the island. Later in the game, players will not be able to access the island, as the Societea launched the cannon in the Sky Fortress that shot a huge destructive blast of energy which had vaporized the entire island with a blast of energy. The Pokémon originally located here can be found on other islands in the Oblivia region afterwards, since residents of Cocona Village on Renbow Island evacuated all of the Pokémon to save them from the explosion.

After the main storyline has been completed, Nema initiates a quest which leads to her creating a model of Dolce Island where the player can find the previous boss Pokémon that can be re-battled there.

Ben washed up on Dolce Island after he was attacked by Red Eyes in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs (Part 1). He soon encountered the mysterious Ukelele Pichu and went on to befriend it using his Capture Styler.

In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs (Part 2), after learning from Booker that Dolce island's Pokémon had been taken by the Pokémon Pinchers, Ben flew over to Renbow Island to investigate further.


  • Dolce Island is the only island in the Pokémon games to be completely obliterated because of humans.
  • The coordinates of Dolce Island are X coordinate 055665, Y coordinate 355671.
  • When Ukulele Pichu is playing music, before the Pinchers are shown capturing Pokémon on the island, a Sunkern is seen floating.
