From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Mandarin Island South (Japanese: マンダリン島 Mandarin Island) is located in the southern end of the Orange Archipelago. It is the largest island in the chain.
Mandarin Island South is home to many big cities and a large stadium, though much of the island is desert.
In the anime, Prima of the Elite Four trains here during the off-season. Once a week, she gives lectures and demonstrates Pokémon battling techniques. This suggests a parallel between the Sevii Islands in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen and the Orange Archipelago, as the in-game information says that Lorelei is from Floe Island.
There is another village in Mandarin Island that is home to Ralph and Emily. It is a small, older village with many unremodeled buildings. Then, across a large desert, is another town with a Pokémon Center and an Officer Jenny. Next to the Pokémon Center in this town is a path that leads to Trovitopolis, a bustling city.
