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 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 was forced to catch it, the only Pokémon he was ever seen catching in the anime. The majority of Murcott Island is covered in dense forest, and a lake is also present. A fairly large town with tall and grand buildings exists some distance away from the beachfront.
The Pokémon Center on Murcott Island is located in the town area. The building is white with columns and an orange domed roof. The Center almost looks like a giant Town Hall with a "P" on its front. Inside, it is run by Nurse Joy and Chansey.
