Location of Ascorbia Island in the Orange Archipelago

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 also home to many large apartment buildings. It appeared in The Pokémon Water War.

On this island, Captain Aidan trains Team Wartortle and its evolutions, Squirtle and Blastoise to be firefighters. There is also an Officer Jenny in this town.

Fire station

The headquarters and training center of Captain Aidan and his firefighting team is a large facility. 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 running track for physical exercise. There is a machine that fires flying targets allowing the Turtle Pokémon to practice their Water Gun projection.

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.
