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.
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. When Ash and his friends arrived on Tarroco in Viva Las Lapras they learned Captain Crook and his crew were targeting a migrating school of Lapras nearby. Ash's Lapras, who had become stranded, recognized these Lapras as its own school. It and the group helped defeat Captain Crook before leaving Ash's team to return to its family.
