Pummelo Island (Japanese: カンキツ島 Kankitsu Island) is a tropical island in the north end of the Orange Archipelago. It is the final destination for Pokémon Trainers who wish to participate in the Orange League. When entering the island, one can see Pummelo Stadium on top of the island.
Any Trainer who defeats the Head Leader of the Orange Crew at Pummelo Stadium becomes the Champion of the Orange League, honored forever in the Palace of Victory. Seasonal Orange League Winner's Trophy Matches are big events on the island, and battling seem to be viewed as an exciting spectator sport.
Dragonite acts as the guardian of Pummelo Island.

The main stadium where the Trainer who has collected all four Orange League Badges fights against the Head Leader Drake. It looks like a large Roman stadium. The Trainer and the Head Leader battle in a Full Battle, a battle of six Pokémon each. All around Pummelo Stadium are statues of Dragonite. The stage can change to a rocky area with a pool in the middle and a sandy, desert like battlefield.
During the battle, the Head Leader is forbidden to change Pokémon, and when three Pokémon of any Trainer are defeated, a field change will occur. If the challenger should triumph over the Head Leader, they will be crowned Champion of the Orange League.
