Location of Tarroco Island in the Orange Archipelago

Tarroco Island (Japanese: バンペイユ島 Banpeiyu Island) is an island in the Orange Archipelago. It is a large island that is strictly a no-capture zone, meaning Pokémon cannot be captured around the area. A lot of its houses are similar in design to the ones on Mandarin Island South, but newer. An Officer Jenny patrols the streets of Tarroco Island.

Because the island is a 'no-capture zone', it is a very common place for pirates to appear and poach the Pokémon on the island.

A large Pokémon Center on the edge of the island looking over a cliff. It looks like a large church with a Poké Ball on the main tower instead of a bell. Although it seems very big, the main lobby is very small, only holding a main desk and one telephone. There is also a Recovery Room where the Pokémon are healed.
