Orange Archipelago
Anime map of the Orange Islands

The Orange Archipelago (Japanese: オレンジ諸島 Orange Archipelago), more commonly known as the Orange Islands, is a large chain of tropical islands located south of Kanto and Johto.

This region is exclusive to the anime and The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga. It was likely developed as the setting for a filler arc while the next generation of games was still under development. It is not referenced in any game, although players can explore the later-introduced Sevii Islands, which appear in roughly the same location.

Pokémon Trainers come here to participate in the Orange League, but its tropical climate also attracts many tourists. One effect of the climate is the presence of alternately colored Pokémon. The Officer Jennys and Nurse Joys of the archipelago dress in slightly different attire than those of the other regions, and some appear to have tans. Most of the scattered islands in the archipelago are named after types of oranges or other various citrus, and many are deserted.

Ancient texts identify the central region of the archipelago as the source of all the waters of the world and possibly the origin of life.

League

Main article: Orange League

Only four Orange League Badges are required to participate in championship competition, held on Pummelo Island. Unlike Gyms in other regions, the Orange League requires participants to complete challenges for the leaders of the Orange League, the Orange Crew.

Compared to the Gym Leaders of the other regions Ash has visited, the challenges set by the Orange Crew are not restricted to a building serving as the Gym, with Danny's tasks involving a mountain while Cissy and Rudy had a portion of their challenges involving the ocean. Only Luana hosted hers in a Gym arena although this was an extension to her hotel.
