Location of Murcott Island in the Orange Archipelago

Murcott Island (Japanese: マーコット島 Murcott Island) is an island in the Orange Archipelago. It is famous for being home to many rare Bug-type Pokémon, leading some to compare it to a Safari Zone. On the island a Scyther was attacked and badly injured by its own swarm. Because of this, Tracey caught it. The majority of Murcott Island is covered in dense forest, and a lake is also present. A fairly large town with tall buildings exists some distance away from the beachfront.
