Help Pokémon Get Out of a Pinch

Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs is the third installment in the action-packed Pokémon Ranger series. In this new adventure players step into the role of a Pokémon Ranger tasked with protecting Pokémon, people and nature in the Oblivia region. As a Pokémon Ranger, players investigate the nefarious actions of a new enemy, the Pokémon Pinchers, who have been disrupting the peace of the land by chasing and catching Pokémon.

Like earlier Pokémon Ranger games, Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs is a RPG, revolving around capturing Pokémon, in order harness their power is battle. To do so players use their DS stylus to activate the game's "capture styler" functionality. Powered by a rechargeable energy bar, this capture mechanism encircles the Pokémon in question and if it can contain/survive any attacks unleashed by the Pokémon the player can temporarily use the powers of that Pokémon in conflicts, to solve puzzles and more. As the story progresses the player's capture styler gains more powers and abilities. In addition, the game also allows the player access to special symbols known as Ranger Signs. These are drawn on the gameplay area using the DS stylus and are used to summon particular Pokémon previously captured. Ranger Signs can also be used to summon classic Pokémon like Raikou, Entei and Suicune, who make appearances in the game. Additional features include 4-player support via a Nintendo DS Local Wireless connection and the ability to play as a male or female Pokémon Ranger.

Key Game Features

  • As a Pokémon Ranger, players set out to stop the Pokémon Pinchers with the help of their partner, Ukulele Pichu (an energetic Pichu that always carries a ukulele).
  • Players use the Capture Styler to circle Pokémon on the touch screen. The further in the story players progress, the more powers and abilities their Capture Styler gains.
  • By drawing special Ranger Signs on the touch screen, players can summon powerful Pokémon that they have befriended to help them progress in the game. Legendary Pokémon like Raikou, Entei and Suicune can be summoned by drawing their Ranger Signs.
  • Up to four players can play together on certain missions using the Nintendo DS Local Wireless Connection, and discover more about the history of the Oblivia region.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just plain fun October 8, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember the days when Pokemon was new. I was in middle school, part of the target audience, when I heard about these obscure little pocket monsters. At the time (late '90s-ish), it was difficult not to know about them. There was a TV show; numerous videogames; news stories; and of course, the notorious card game. What was so strangely alluring about a children's television show which followed young boy who leaves his mother and, virtually defenseless, embarks on a cross-country journey on which he kidnaps various animals and forces them to fight one another to the death for his enjoyment? The answer: it's Japanese. Because, of course, everything Japanese is cool.

Though my Pokemon cards and GameBoy games are long gone, it's interesting to see how the franchise has continued to evolve and, oddly enough, survive through the years. Frankly, I don't even recognize the franchise now; it's changed so much from its inception. After playing the relatively recent HeartGold (a little closer to my generation of the Pokemon world), I got a little more in tune with the franchise again. I thought it'd be fun to peak in again and see what was going on.

Pokemon Ranger: Guardian Signs is the third installment in the Pokemon Ranger series, a spin-off of the main-line Pokemon games existing on the Nintendo DS. Guardian Signs. In the Pokemon Ranger series your role is a little different from the typical capture creature, train creature, become the best Pokemon Trainer. Instead, you play as a Pokemon Ranger, whose job is to protect Pokemon, people, and nature in the Oblivia region. Players investigate the horrible Pokemon Pinchers, who have been poaching and selling Pokemon, through several different missions.

Get rid of the other two, this is the only one you need. It's full of awesome gameplay, many many hours will be put into this one. The animations are awesome, really colorful and bright. It's just... fun. If you enjoy video games, Pokemon, or both... then buy this immediately. You will NOT be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun game October 5, 2010
By Hannah
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this game little while ago (PR) and it's a really great game. If you've ever played an older ranger game, you'll be delighted to see they have kept many old features but have added new ones. The plot is long and a little generic, but fun anyway. The graphics continue to astound me - I've always been a sucker for 3D mixed with 2D. Overall this game is great for Pokemon fans and even people who are newer to the games.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia after my sister got it, and instantly got completely addicted. The plot was stupendous, and the ranger twist was great.

When I found out a new ranger game was coming out, I was thrilled. I bought it as soon as I got my next Amazon gift card. I started to play as soon as I got it. Most of the new additions were quite fun, for example the primary feature of the game: being able to call back certain Pokemon previously captured. However, there was one feature that I constantly regretted: the change in how Poke assists work. The fact that your only available partner Pokemon was Ukulele Pichu also saddened me.

The game would have met all of my expectations if I had not played Shadows of Almia beforehand. The plot in Guardian Signs is not nearly as intriguing. While Pokemon pinchers offer an exciting opponent, I find the notion of machines controlling Pokemon much more on-the-edge-of-my-seat intense material. Also, there was the fact that you start out as a ranger as opposed to going through ranger school and the trainee process. In this you missed all the fun of exploring the fundamentals of pokemon, rangers, and target clears, and going through the ranger ranks.

The return of Murph was a welcome feature, although he definitely would not be the character of choice to traverse the games. There was one part where Murph attempted a "human target clear" (only shadows of almia fans will appreciate this) and ran at the wall, yelling, "target... CLEAR!!!" After failing, he said, "A ranger I know is really good at that" When he said that, I found myself yelling, "Barlow! Don't say a ranger I know, say Barlow!"

Anyway, if you are the type who skips through all the dialogue, hands down get this product. If you are looking for a more developed plot-line, get Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great game December 29, 2012
By SClarke
Verified Purchase
As a person who has been playing Pokemon Ranger since the original, I have to say the games have gone a long way. I love the fact that after the original, you didn't have to continuously loop to capture in gameplay, and they kept that here (which is amazing). They have a new summoning function that takes in the "Guardian Signs" side of the title, and I have to say, traveling around the world looking for legendaries to summon is amazing, but not as annoying as you would think. I've played games with no warp option (this one has no warp) and no way to skip the transport (be it flying, walking, swimming, or sailing). Luckily, the islands aren't that far apart, so flying is bearable, but there is also a quick-fly option of sorts where you can go to fly (made much easier by summoning latias or latios) and then just arrive at your destination in seconds, rather than flying the entire route. Land travel is made easier by the use of entei, raiku, and suicune. The story is just like most other ranger games, but with its own twist, like normal. The music is nice, and the graphics... Well, they're Ranger graphics.

Overall, I have to say this is an amazing game, and I played it nonstop for almost a month trying to clear all the side quests, and just enjoying the story. I would recommend this to anyone who can read (because you need to read to enjoy the game fully and understand all of it), as well as anyone who is a fan, old or new of the rangers or just Pokemon in general. I will never sell this game ever, and I will continue to enjoy it of rears to come.
