Mirage Island is found on {{rt|130|Hoenn}} in {{game2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}}. However, it can only be visited under highly rare circumstances. ItThe island is visitedinhabited mainlyby forwild {{p|Wynaut}} which range from [[level]] 5 to level 50. Most notably, the island also bears a tree where the one and only [[Liechi Berry]] thatin the game can be picked. This is the best Berry for [[Pokéblock]]s, and will produce itGold hostsPokéblocks.

[[Save data structure in Generation III#Section 2 - Environment variables|Two random bytes]] ("Mirage Island bytes") are generated for the day once any button is pressed on the start menu, and will last until the start menu is accessed again past 00:00 (midnight) of the next day. Even though play time has nothing to do with [[time|the real-time clock]], a game that has reached the maximum time of play (999 hours and 59 minutes) will always generate Mirage Island bytes of 0. Additionally, if a game's internal battery is dead (causing the real-time clock to stop functioning), then new Mirage Island bytes will never be generated, causing the Mirage Island number to permanently stay at whatever value it was before<ref></ref>. Currently it has not been precisely documented what happens to a game which has both a dead internal battery and a maximized play time<!-- we aren't even sure if order matters or not -->.
The island is inhabited by {{p|Wynaut}} which range from [[level]] 5 to level 50. It also bears a tree where one [[Liechi Berry]] can be picked. This is the best Berry for [[Pokéblock]]s, and will produce Gold Pokéblocks.
* Although Mirage Island does not appear in {{pkmn|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}}, the route description of Route 130 on the [[PokéNav Plus]] alludes to it; "This route was once a big topic of conversation due to a strange island that seemed to appear and then disappear."
* If a [[roaming Pokémon]] goes onto Route 130 while the Mirage Island is present, it can also be found in the tall grass.
