Faraway Island (Japanese: さいはてのことう Utmost Island) is an island in a distant location from Hoenn.

In the games

The island is only visitable in Pokémon Emerald. Its location appears on the Old Sea Map and Mr. Briney returns a favor to the player by helping him or her sail to this island on the ship moored in Lilycove City.


On the island is a sign with old, fading writing dated the 6th day of a month; in the English localization, this month ends in "ber", but in the Japanese version, it is only known that it is a month name. Also, exclusively in the Japanese version is a remnant of a signature at the end of the message, ジ ji; this is commonly assumed to be Fuji. Whether it refers to Mr. Fuji or Dr. Fuji, both of whom may actually be the same character, is unknown.

This island could be the Guyanese jungle referenced in the Pokémon Mansion journals.

English Japanese

The writing is fading as if it was
written a long time ago…

“…ber, 6th day
If any human…sets foot here…
again…et it be a kindhearted pers…
…ith that hope, I depar…”

なんねんも まえに かかれたような
ふるい かきおきが ある‥‥

‥‥がつ 6か
ここに たちいる にんげ‥‥
ふたたび ‥‥らわれると すれば
こころ やさし‥‥で あらんことを

‥‥こに その ねがいを しるし
この ‥‥を あとにする


A possibility for the full text originally written on the sign is (without guessing the unknown month):

English Japanese
“…ber, 6th day
If any human being sets foot here ever again, let it be a kindhearted person.
With that hope, I depart.”
‥‥がつ 6か
ここに たちいる にんげんが ふたたび あらわれると すれば こころ やさしきひとで あらんことを

ここに その ねがいを しるし この ちを あとにする

The background music played here is Abandoned Ship, like in Southern Island, another event location accessible in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. When battling Mew, the theme played is Battle! (Mew).

Faraway Island in Pokémon Adventures

Faraway Island first appeared in Mirage is Far Away, in which Mr. Briney reported to Ultima that he managed to find the island without the Old Sea Map. He told her Mew was there but it was alarmed by his presence and flew away from the island.

The place later appeared in The Final Showdown VIII, when all the rental Pokémon at Battle Frontier were calmed by Emerald using pellets with soil from the Pokémon's birthplace. Gold explained he was able to affect many different Pokémon using the same soil because it was taken from the home of Mew, who is said to possess the genes of all Pokémon.
