Pokémon world locations

The Whirl Islands (Japanese: うずまきじま Whirlpool Islands) are a small archipelago located between the mainland of Johto and Cianwood City, on Route 41. Beneath the sea, a maze of dark caves sprawl, with explorers able to travel between the four islands with some amount of difficulty. Deep within these caves, Lugia can be found.

Named after the dangerous whirlpools that surround them, some parts of the Whirl Islands are mysterious and largely inaccessible. Children in Olivine City are told that bad kids are sent to the islands.

As explained in Pokémon SoulSilver, the Whirl Islands used to be one large island. At some point in time, there were two countries fighting over the island. Lugia, the guardian of the island, got upset and cast lightning bolts to tear the island into four pieces. It then disappeared into the deep end of the waterfall basin, longing for the invisible trust between people and Pokémon to manifest once more.

The depiction of the islands is far different in the anime. Far from being deserted, it contains many towns and other inhabitable areas. The Whirl Islands are home to the Whirl Cup, a competition for Water Pokémon Trainers held once every three years.

Rumors circulate that families of Lugia reside there. A mother Lugia and her baby, Silver, were sought by Dr. Namba and did, in fact, reveal themselves.

There are four main islands, with many smaller ones scattered throughout. Together, the islands in the archipelago form a spiral shape.

The islands, from north to south:

According to the Nurse Joy on Blue Point Isle, the climate varies from island to island.
