Grand Spectrala Island (Japanese: マホラ本島 Mahora Main Island) is the third island Ash, Iris, and Cilan visited during their travels through the Decolore Islands, arriving there in The Island of Illusions!.

The island has been largely abandoned for ten years as it has little in the way of tourist attractions. It has only one known inhabitant who operates a struggling restaurant. It is connected to a Pokémon sanctuary on Grand Spectrala Islet when the tide is sufficiently low, where Giant Pokémon are said to live. Grand Spectrala Islet consists of mostly forest, as well as a rundown Pokémon Center.
During the events of The Island of Illusions!, Ash and his friends spent much of their time on the Islet. After the group's encounter with a giant Heatmor, they started to search for someone who could help Axew, and came across the Pokémon Center. Desperate, they went inside and found that there was a Nurse Joy and Audino there to help them. While they seemed rather odd, Nurse Joy and Audino were able to make a medicine out of Berries for Axew, which cured the Pokémon instantly.
Suddenly, an older Nurse Joy entered the facility and told the Joy behind the desk to stop all operations effective immediately, as the Center was being illegally operated. Instead of apologizing, the Center's Nurse Joy revealed that it was a Zoroark that used to spend time with the real Nurse Joy at the facility, before the Center was shut down due to the dwindling amount of Pokémon Trainers needing assistance. Zoroark was also responsible for all of the giant Pokémon, which were illusions it created to keep Pokémon poachers away. The older Joy, who turned out to be the same Nurse Joy who used to work at the Center, apologized for leaving and decided that she would stay with Zoroark and turn the old Center into a special Pokémon Center for wild Pokémon.
