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 {{pkmn|anime}} and [[The Electric Tale of Pikachu]] {{pkmn|manga}}. It was likely developed as the setting for a [[filler episode|filler arc]] while the [[Generation II|next generation of games]] was still [[Pokémon_Gold_and_Silver_beta#Delayed_release|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 Trainer]]s 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 [[List of alternately colored Pokémon in the anime|alternately colored Pokémon]]. The [[Officer Jenny]]s and [[Nurse Joy]]s 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.
