Tumblecube Island (Japanese: カクコロ島 Kakukoro Island) is the setting of the game Pokémon Quest.



As its name suggests, Tumblecube Island is an island made of cubes. It is said that it possesses traces of an old civilization that no longer exists and that precious loot is hidden around the island. Tumblecube Island is home to 12 small areas of varying terrain.


Each location has a certain amount of subareas to explore, plus a Type bonus which allows the player's Pokéxel to inflict more damage if it possesses that Typing. Not all locations, however, offer a Type bonus to the player.


Tumblecube Island appears to be uninhabited by any humans, only being home to cube-shaped wild Pokémon known as Pokéxels. They are attracted by the smell of food at Base Camp and are willing to befriend humans. It is stated that, even if Pokéxels are the same species, their Pokémon Charms and Abilities can be slightly different from each other. Pokéxels can be given Power Stones to help them become stronger, and an Everstone button can be given to them to keep them from evolving.

Statues of Pokéxels seem to hold a symbolic importance for Tumblecube Island. After defeating the boss at First Steppe, the player is given the Prolific Statue, which is carved in the shape of three Rattata and is most revered in the Chamber of Legends. The dialogue suggests that the statue is meant to symbolize prosperity, given how Rattata are capable of surviving no matter where they live. Similarly, the Flourishing Statue received after defeating the boss at Backforth Brook is carved in the shape of a Doduo, and it is said that the creator believed Doduo's physical strength would help Tumblecube Island to succeed.
