Potpourri Island
Region Kanto
Debut Off the Unbeaten Path

Potpourri Island (Japanese: ポプリ島 Potpourri Island) is an anime-exclusive location in the Kanto region. Ash, accompanied by his friends, reached Potpourri Island after defeating Pike Queen Lucy at the Battle Pike and earning the Luck Symbol. It's not too far away from Fuchsia City. There is a town on one side of the island, called Wisteria Town.

This island was shown in Off the Unbeaten Path. Ash with Pikachu, May with Eevee, Brock with Bonsly, Max with Munchlax, Jessie with Meowth dressed as a Sneasel and James with Mime Jr. participated in the Pokémon Orienteering which was being held here. James managed to win the competition and earn the prize, which he gave away to Ash and friends, much to the bewilderment of his Team Rocket colleagues Jessie and Meowth.

In the next episode, Ash and his friends traveled to the other side of the island in order to reach Wisteria Town, where a Pokémon Contest was going to take place. May, her rival Harley, and several other Coordinators entered the event hoping to earn the coveted Wisteria Ribbon. May and Harley were pitched against one another in the final round, and Harley managed to defeat her Munchlax using his Octillery, thus winning the competition and earning his fourth Kanto Ribbon.
