The '''Orange Crew''' (Japanese: '''サザンクロス''' ''Southern Cross'') is the common term for the [[Gym Leader]]s from the islands of the [[Orange Archipelago]]. {{pkmn|Trainer}}s can't compete in the [[Orange League]] until they defeat all the Gym Leaders in the Orange Crew.
The '''Orange League''' (Japanese: '''オレンジリーグ''' ''Orange League'') is the regional [[Pokémon League]] of the [[Orange Archipelago]]. It consists of the [[Gym Leader]]s of the [[Orange Crew]]. It has been established for over 300 years. In Japanese, it is less commonly known as the (Japanese: '''サザンリーグ''' ''Southern League'') because of its ties with the {{wp|Southern Cross}}.
 
   
The Orange League is perhaps the least conventional of all the regional Pokémon Leagues, as it focuses less on [[Pokémon battle|Pokémon battling]] and more on how a {{Pkmn|Trainer}} interacts with his or her individual {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} in many different circumstances. Orange League Trainers are said to be tougher than those in the [[Indigo League|Indigo Pokémon League]]. However, meeting the requirements to enter Orange League [[Pokémon League#Championship competitions|competitions]] is a much simpler task: Trainers must earn only four [[Badge]]s instead of the usual eight.

The Japanese title, Southern Cross, is a reference to the real [[wp:Crux|Southern Cross constellation]] that marks the southern sky. It consists of four main stars in a kite shape and a smaller one near the middle. It is often used as a symbol for [[Pokémon world in relation to the real world|real]] countries in the {{wp|southern hemisphere}}, such as {{wp|Australia}} and {{wp|Brazil}}, and also the Orange Archipelago, which is located south of the [[Kanto]] [[region]]. The locations of the four Orange League Gyms correspond with the main stars in the Southern Cross, with [[Pummelo Island]] near the center.
   
According to {{Tracey}}, young Pokémon Trainers from the Orange Islands typically begin their Pokémon journey on [[Tangelo Island]] and work their way around the archipelago, winning Badges along the way. The Trainers' final destination is [[Pummelo Island]], where Orange League competitions are held. Competing in the Orange League is different from competing in other Pokémon Leagues. Trainers may freely challenge the top Gym Leader in the Orange Crew, called the [[Head Leader]], at any time. Those who can defeat the [[Head Leader]] in a [[Full Battle]] take the title of [[Pokémon Champion|Pokémon League Champion]], as well as the coveted [[Winner's Trophy]]. A photo featuring the winning Trainer with the trophy on hand and all six Pokémon that have participated in the full battle will be kept in the [[Palace of Victory]], together with the footprints of the Trainer and the Pokémon.

The Orange Crew (Japanese: サザンクロス Southern Cross) is the common term for the Gym Leaders from the islands of the Orange Archipelago. Trainers can't compete in the Orange League until they defeat all the Gym Leaders in the Orange Crew.

The Japanese title, Southern Cross, is a reference to the real Southern Cross constellation that marks the southern sky. It consists of four main stars in a kite shape and a smaller one near the middle. It is often used as a symbol for real countries in the southern hemisphere, such as Australia and Brazil, and also the Orange Archipelago, which is located south of the Kanto region. The locations of the four Orange League Gyms correspond with the main stars in the Southern Cross, with Pummelo Island near the center.
