Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia Preview



Published by:
Nintendo
Developed by: Creatures
Console: Nintendo DS
Release Date: (US) November 10, 2008 (EU) TBA (Japan)
Genre: Action RPG

Storyline:

You play as a Pokémon Ranger, working to help people, Pokémon and nature in a new region called the Almia Region. Starting out as a Student Ranger, you quickly earn the title of a Pokémon Ranger. As you succeed in more and more missions, you will aspire to become the highest Ranger rank: Top Ranger. As you proceed through the game, you will meet and capture all kinds of different Pokémon.

Overview:

This is game is like the other pokemon ranger games but it's the first game to feature pokemon from Diamond and Pearl.

Gameplay:


I hope everyone knows you will be capturing Pokemon. As you proceed through the game, Players receive a Capture Styler. To capture a Pokemon, you have to draw with a Capture Styler a circle around them. The captured Pokemon will follow the player around until their powers are used. There are two skills players can use for puzzle-solving; Poké Assist and 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.

After completing certain quests, the Union will reward you with power-ups which will upgrade your Capture Styler. Quests will include fighting wildfires, rescuing people or even delivering an important package.
There are various levels too.

  • Chikore Village: A village located in the southern area of Almia.
  • Vien Town: A town in central Almia. The Ranger Base is located here, and the Ranger School.
  • Vien Forest: The forest north of Vien Town. A wide variety of Pokémon can be seen here.
  • Pueru Town: A town in Almia, referred to as the "heart" of Almia. A harbor is located here.
  • Boil Land: Located near a volcano.
  • Haruba Desert: A desert in Almia, housing a strange Hippowdon-shaped temple.
  • Asoheru Tower: Where Team Yamiyami's HQ is located. You face many boss Pokémon (Gallade, Rhyperior, Magmortar, and the Legendary Pokémon Darkrai.)
  • Wailord Lake: A calm lake which Team Yamiyami tries to take over the pokemon such as Wailord.
  • Hibaru Field: A snowy field where many rare pokemon can be found.

Features:

Nothing official but it's probably going to be like the other Pokemon Ranger games.

Cast:


Hundreds of Pokémon. Players can be either a boy or girl Pokémon Ranger.
