Shamouti Island (アーシア島 'Earthia Island, Arshia Island and Asia Island are also seen) was featured in the second Pokémon movie, Pokémon: The Movie 2000. It is located in the center of the Orange Archipelago. Shamouti Islands is composed of Shamouti Island and its surrounding isles, Fire Island, Ice Island, and Lightning Island (Japanese: Arshia Island, Earthia Island and Asia Island), are connected to the balance of nature via the Legendary Pokémon Moltres, Articuno, Zapdos, and their mediator Lugia.
Ancient writings from many different cultures name the area around this region as the source of all the waters of the world and perhaps life itself.
The Shamouti Islands appears to be a cultural center for the Orange Archipelago because of its many island holidays. One such holiday is the annual Legend Festival. For centuries, the locals have performed a ceremony honoring the prophesied Chosen One that would tame the birds of legend should they release their might on the world. The locals dress up in traditional attire, apparently for historical purposes, but some in the younger generation attribute the preservation effort to the resulting tourism.
