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.

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.

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.

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.

This game is by far my favorite in the Ranger spinoff series. It takes everything Shadows of Almia did better than the first game, and makes it perfect. And despite my lack of enthusiasm for the general adoration of Pichu, I absolutely love Ukulele Pichu! Maybe it's 'cause my brother plays the Ukulele... anyways, it was also an incredibly useful gameplay mechanic, allowing you to make progress on capturing Pokemon without having to worry about type advantage OR losing your Pokemon. Speaking of which, I really love that you can use a Pokemon's Poke assist over and over, without having to release it, until it gets attacked. Then you DO release it. But that sort of thing really made the experience a lot less frustrating than it could have been. And, of course, there's the new cool mechanic of being able to call on certain Pokemon any time you want. (I won't tell you what Pokemon they are... spoilers! ;) ) So anyways, EVERYTHING about this game is absolutely fantastic, and I have no complaints.

This game was very fun to play. This game features a pokemon ranger that rescues pokemon in danger. This game includes puzzles, quests, and a new features that is not includes within the other pokemon ranger games, the ability to summon legendary pokemon that you have captured that will help you within the game. This game also has missions that can be played with other players over the nintendo wireless feature. I highly recommend this game to any Pokemon fans.
