Location of Fairchild Island in the Orange Archipelago

Fairchild Island (Japanese: デカポン島 Dekapon Island) is an island in the Orange Archipelago. It appeared in Bound for Trouble.

Fairchild Island is a mixture of forested and rocky terrain. Tracey suspected that the island's giant Pidgeot and Rhydon reached to their current gargantuan sizes because of Fairchild Island's fruit-filled forests. There are many resident wild Pokémon that will attack anyone who makes their way onto the island.


In Bound for Trouble, Meowth and Ash's Pikachu were bound together by a rope after Team Rocket tried to steal Pikachu once again. However, a giant Pidgeot swooped in and grabbed them. Pikachu managed to free himself and Meowth from Pidgeot's talons with Thunderbolt, but he still had to deal with the island's giant Pokémon while trying to reunite with Ash.
