I bought this game ASAP; it turned out to be quite interesting, good graphics, nice use of touch screen and simple controls. It's a bit hard to get used to but after a while you get the hang of it. Basically, you draw lots of circles around Pokemon. Some are hard and some are easy. Pokemon Ranger has a very good story line, it's not too hard and it's fun. You must solve puzzles ranging from easy to hard using the skills of Pokemon. You can choose if you're a Male or Female and your name. Your rival is the opposite gender (if your rival is male, his name is Lunick and if your rival is a female, her name is Solana) of your character and you also have a partner Pokemon (Minun for Males and Plusle for Females). All the wild Pokemon you catch will either use a field move or Poke Assist to help you. Some don't do either and are just there to fill your Ranger Browser which is like a Pokedex except not complete. After they have helped you, they automatically get released. Not your partner though. This is a great game but unless you are a big Pokemon fan, I don't recommend it. If you're a Pokemon fan that likes more than battling, capturing, training and trading then go ahead and get this game! However, I don't suggest getting it ONLY if you want the Manaphy egg for Diamond or Pearl. You could always get a friend to trade you Fione (Japanese name). You can't see and capture all 386 Pokemon (from 1st-3rd gen) but that doesn't matter. I enjoyed this game and I hope other people will too. All in all, it can be challenging, hard (not too hard but hard enough) and fun.
