Pokemon Ranger: Guardian Signs is an Action Role-Playing game (RPG) for play on the Nintendo DS/DSi. Based in the long-lived Pokemon mythology, the game retains certain battle and Pokemon capture elements from the earliest Pokemon games, as well as the RPG elements found in the newer Pokemon Ranger series. Features include: use of the DS stylus to facilitate Pokemon capture, and the ability to easily recall them thereafter; puzzle play using Pokemon skills; and 4-player wireless game support.
A brand-new Pokemon Ranger experience.
Help Pokemon Get Out of a Pinch
Pokemon Ranger: Guardian Signs is the third installment in the action-packed Pokemon Ranger series. In this new adventure players step into the role of a Pokemon Ranger tasked with protecting Pokemon, people and nature in the Oblivia region. As a Pokemon Ranger, players investigate the nefarious actions of a new enemy, the Pokemon Pinchers, who have been disrupting the peace of the land by chasing and catching Pokemon.
Like earlier Pokemon Ranger games, Pokemon Ranger: Guardian Signs is a RPG, revolving around capturing Pokemon, 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 Pokemon in question and if it can contain/survive any attacks unleashed by the Pokemon the player can temporarily use the powers of that Pokemon 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 Pokemon previously captured. Ranger Signs can also be used to summon classic Pokemon 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 Pokemon Ranger.
