Location of Pummelo Island in the Orange Archipelago

Pummelo Island (Japanese: カンキツ島 Kankitsu Island) is a tropical island in the north end of the Orange Archipelago. It is the final destination for Pokémon Trainers who wish to participate in the Orange League. When entering the island, one can see Pummelo Stadium on top of the island.

Any Trainer who defeats the Orange Crew Supreme Gym Leader at Pummelo Stadium becomes the Champion of the Orange League, honored forever in the Palace of Victory. Seasonal Orange League Winner's Trophy matches are big events on the island, and battling seem to be viewed as an exciting spectator sport.

Dragonite is revered as a guardian and is immortalized in statues across Pummelo Island.

Pummelo Stadium

The main stadium where the Trainer who has collected all four Orange League Badges fights against the Orange Crew Supreme Gym Leader Drake. It looks like a large Roman stadium. The Trainer and the Orange Crew Supreme Gym Leader battle in a Full Battle, a battle of six Pokémon each. All around Pummelo Stadium are statues of Dragonite. The stage can change to a rocky area with a pool in the middle and a sandy, desert like battlefield.

During the battle, the Orange Crew Supreme Gym Leader is forbidden to change Pokémon, and when three Pokémon of any Trainer are defeated, a field change will occur. If the challenger should triumph over the Orange Crew Supreme Gym Leader, they will be crowned Champion of the Orange League.
