Location of Fullmoon Island in Sinnoh.
|Pokémon world locations|
Fullmoon Island (Japanese: まんげつじま Full Moon Island) is an island located north of Sinnoh, where the Legendary Pokémon Cresselia is initially encountered. Players may obtain the Lunar Wing in this place.
Fullmoon Island is a small island largely covered in forest. A short path cuts through the forest, and leads to a shaded clearing with a pond shaped like a crescent moon. Unlike most other locations in the Pokémon world, there is no tall grass here, and wild Pokémon cannot be found, with the exception of Cresselia. She awaits the player in the middle of the clearing.
Once the player has entered the Hall of Fame, the son of Sailor Eldritch, who runs the ferry to Iron Island from Canalave City, falls into a sleep from which he cannot be awoken and is plagued by nightmares. To cure his son, the sailor begs the player to take the ferry to Fullmoon Island to get a Lunar Wing.
Upon arrival, the player will find that there is not much to the island besides an entrance to a deeper area of the island, where Cresselia waits. After encountering her, she will fly off and begin to roam the routes of Sinnoh. As soon as Cresselia has left, the Lunar Wing can be found where she was.

In the anime
Fullmoon Island debuted in Sleepless in Pre-Battle!. Ash and his friends visited the island to find Cresselia and obtain her help in stopping Darkrai's nightmare-inducing attack on Canalave City. During the visit, Team Rocket tried to steal Cresselia, and Dawn's Swinub evolved into Piloswine.
Fullmoon Island reappeared in JN074, where, under Giovanni's orders, Matori and the Matori Matrix attacked a Cresselia, causing her to flee. A Darkrai was seen on the neighboring Newmoon Island, reacting to the attack.
In Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl, the island is depicted with steep cliffs that make it mostly inaccessible. A single landing point located within a canyon allows vessels to dock, while a fleet of stone-cut stairs leads to Cresselia's shrine. In Pokémon Journeys: The Series, Fullmoon Island's appearance is changed to more resemble its appearance in the games.
In the manga
In The Final Dimensional Duel V, Palmer told Platinum how he had visited Fullmoon Island in search for a Lunar Wing to cure Eldritch's son Vijay several weeks prior. When he had arrived at the island, he had found numerous wild Pokémon asleep and having terrible nightmares. All of his attempts to help the suffering Pokémon had proven futile, until suddenly Cresselia had appeared above the island and used Lunar Dance, waking up the tormented Pokémon. In addition, Cresselia had dropped down a Lunar Wing, allowing Eldritch's son to be cured, while Cresselia herself had chosen to join Palmer's team.
