After Spenser (one of the Ranger Leaders) receives letters about how much the player wants to become a Ranger, he invites the player to Fall City to join. The life of a Pokémon Ranger consists primarily of protecting nature and helping people by using wild Pokémon they have captured. By using the wild Pokémon’s powers, Rangers can solve any number of problems. Just as the player starts to feel comfortable as a Ranger, the Go-Rock Squad shows up and steals the Professor’s new Capture Styler.
Characters: As either Lunick (boy) or Solana (girl), players set out to stop the Go-Rock Squad and recover Professor Hasting’s stolen Super Styler (the newly developed version of the Capture Styler). The main character is accompanied by a single partner Pokémon that will always be there, and various wild Pokémon that the player captures as needed.
Players play as a Pokémon Ranger who works to help people, Pokémon and nature.
The game introduces a new way to catch Pokémon using the stylus called “Capturing.”
This game can be played using only the touch screen and stylus, allowing for a unique experience found only on the Nintendo DS. The player captures Pokémon by drawing circles around them with the stylus. By doing this, they are communicating with the Pokémon and sending it their feelings.
Capturing a Pokémon allows players to use its ability and solve various problems they will face along the way (such as clearing obstacles blocking the path). They also can use their ability to help capture other Pokémon.
