From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Ascorbia Island (Japanese: ウンシュウ島 Unshiu Island) is a large island in the northeastern part of the Orange Archipelago. It is home to many towns and big port cities, and is seen as a "big city" island, much like Mandarin Island North. It is home to many large apartment buildings. It appeared in The Pokémon Water War.
On this island, Captain Aidan trains Wartortle and its evolutions, Squirtle and Blastoise to be firefighters. There is also an Officer Jenny in this town.
Places of interest
Instead of a beach like most cities, this island has a port at the beginning, with many warehouses and construction trucks.
The headquarters of Captain Aidan and his firefighting team. This is where he and others train their team of Squirtle, Wartortle, and Blastoise. In the back are test buildings to help the teams put out fires, a jungle gym to train their maneuverability, and a track ring for physical exercise. There is a machine that fired flying targets with which the Turtle Pokémon can practice their Water Gun. The building itself is huge, but the inside was not shown.
Team Blastoise uses their Hydro Pump to put out the big fires, Team Squirtle are used in tight areas, and Team Wartortle have the perfect combination of Squirtle's maneuverability and Blastoise's power.
Abandoned log cabin
An abandoned cabin in the middle of the woods was used as Team Rocket's hideout when they captured Pikachu, Squirtle and Team Wartortle.

- Its English name is derived from ascorbic acid, an antioxidant commonly found in citrus fruits. Its Japanese name literally refers to 温州蜜柑 unshū mikan (satsuma orange), which is derived from the city of Wenzhou in China where it is known for its production of citrus fruits from which this popular species of citrus gets its name.
