Debut Holiday Hi-Jynx

The North Pole (Japanese: サンタの島 Santa's Island) is an anime-exclusive location that is the location of Santa Claus's home and workshop. It appeared in Holiday Hi-Jynx. The island is made primarily of ice structures.

Santa's workshop

In Holiday Hi-Jynx, after finding one of Santa's lost Jynx, Ash and his friends headed for the North Pole to take it home. Due to the long journey there, a Lapras helping Santa find his lost Jynx escorted them to the island.

Santa's workshop is the main feature of the island, resembling a gigantic icy Christmas tree from the outside. Inside is a factory-like environment full of Jynx workers making toys.
