Location of Mandarin Island North in the Orange Archipelago

Mandarin Island North (Japanese: キンカン島 Kinkan Island) is an island located in the Orange Archipelago.

Mandarin Island North is a large city with tall skyscrapers and buildings, which Jessie referred to as The Big Orange, an allusion to New York City (The Big Apple). An Officer Jenny patrols these streets as well.

Butch and Cassidy once used Mandarin Island North for one of their schemes. Using a Drowzee, they hypnotized all the Pokémon on the island into turning against their Trainers. This included Ash's Pikachu and Misty's Togepi.

Places of interest

Police Station

A place in the city where Officer Jenny patrols the streets of Mandarin Island. It is a large building that has a tower and two rooms on either side of the tower. Above the doorway, there is a large star. Inside is a large sitting area with a desk, computer, telephone, and a couple of Wanted posters.

Team Rocket's hideout

On the side of the city, there is a large, abandoned power plant that was used as Butch and Cassidy's hideout when they were using Drowzee to hypnotize all the Pokémon on the island. The hypnotized Pokémon got in the power plant through an air duct on the side of the entrance gate. The building is in rubble due to Togepi's Metronome though.

Trivia

  • Its English name comes from a type of orange known as a mandarin, while its Japanese name refers to the kumquat.
  • Although this island shares the name with Mandarin Island South, there is very little in common. It is believed the islands are named the same because of a dubbing error. In Japan, their names are not the same.
