Product Description

In Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, you once again play as a Pokémon Ranger, working to help people, Pokémon and nature in a new area called the Almia Region. Starting out as a Student Ranger, you quickly earn the title of a full-fledged Pokémon Ranger. As you succeed in more and more missions, you will aspire to become the highest Ranger rank: Top Ranger. Along the way you meet and capture all kinds of different Pokémon.
Become a Pokémon Ranger and protect nature, rescue people and help Pokémon in need.
  • Pokémon Ranger is a unique action-adventure series that features a fun, different way to capture Pokémon with the Nintendo DS stylus, which controls an item called the Capture Styler in the game. Players circle the Pokémon they want to catch by drawing circles around them on the touch screen. When you complete certain Quests, the Ranger Union awards you with power-ups, which add new upgrades and functions to your Capture Styler, allowing you to advance as you work to eventually become a Top Ranger (the most revered Ranger of all).
  • Now you can partner with a variety of different Pokémon of each type to complete Missions?giving you many options on how to approach different challenges. Every Pokémon is different, and capturing a Pokémon allows you to use its abilities to overcome various obstacles and challenges you will face along the way. The job of a Pokémon Ranger is never done: your duties will include fighting wildfires, rescuing people or even delivering an important package.
  • Your journey to become a Top Ranger takes you to the new region of Almia. This game has a larger world, more Missions, more adventure and more to do than the previous Pokémon Ranger game. It has a storyline full of adventure and the ability to travel to and explore many exciting new areas in Almia, including oceans, forests, deserts and more with the help of your Partner Pokémon.
  • This is the first game in the Pokémon Ranger series to feature Pokémon from Pokémon® Diamond and Pokémon® Pearl.

How to progress through the game: Capture wild Pokémon and create a team to clear obstacles and puzzles encountered along the way. After using a Pokémon?s ability, it will leave your team; however, you will have a Partner Pokémon that will always stay by your side. As you progress through Missions and Quests, your Capture Styler becomes more powerful, giving your Styler more Energy and eventually advancing you to the level of Top Ranger.

Characters: Hundreds of Pokémon. Players can choose to be a boy or girl Pokémon Ranger.

Special powers/weapons/moves/features: Use the Capture Styler to capture wild Pokémon. Once they are captured, wild Pokémon will follow the player around until their powers are used (either in a Poké Assist or a Field Move).

  • A Poké Assist is when the player uses an already captured Pokémon to help capture another wild Pokémon.
  • A Field Move is when the player uses a captured Pokémon?s power to clear an obstacle in the way or perform another helpful function.

Q: I couldn’t find the answer to this elsewhere, but I might just be being dumb/it’s common sense, however; does this game work on a 3DS?

Q: Does this game only work on a nintendo ds? Does it also work on a 3ds, 2ds, XL, or lite?

Anonymous 6 months ago
Best Answer :

Yes, all of those systems will play the game. It won't fill the entire top screen as a 3ds game would, but I've used my 3ds XL to play it and it works perfectly fine

Fun game
1 year ago
Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, is a very fun game with an intriguing story, and while visuals may feel a little dated in 2020, over all the quality of the game still holds up very well today. I can see why this game is a hit of a hot item.

Pokèmon Ranger: Shadows of Alma Review

The game is different than the other Pokemon games I've played. Yet in the differences it's still fun to play. The way you save in the game is different than I am used to, the game mechanics are different, but it's not done in a bad way.

Amazing and Fun Pokémon Spinoff
2 years ago
An amazingly fun game, one I can't believe I held off on playing for so long. The only downside is that, as a pre-owned game with limited time DLC no longer available due to the shutdown of the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, your luck with what DLC missions are downloaded and what one-per-cartridge event Pokémon have or have not been redeemed will vary. Fortunately, these missions are optional and not needed at all to enjoy the main game.

Having played majority of the pokemon games most of my life pokemon ranger is erd to best on my list towards enjoying. The reason why I believe this is the new feel of a story than the ones your use too. There is also a smooth play style which isnt to difficult to get down so there isnt any stress there. And this gake take longer too complete so you can enjoy it much longer.

The game was a waste of money. It takes the thrill out of pokemon. If you want a better side game buy the mystery dungeon series.
