Man, I was looking forward to seeing Seviper moving around like a freakish living accordion. And no Dustox or Chimecho? No Cacnea? One of those game-makin' swines has it out for Team Rocket I tells ya.

And no Hitmons at all?! Insane in the membrane. You can't tell me Hitmontop would not have been PERFECT for a game involving spinning tops.

18th March 2006, 8:55 PM
No Caterpies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!
I don't like this game..:(
But it's good that Pikachu's in it, it takes off the pain a little.
Also I'm happy Ralts is in it, I always use Ralts in Emerald:)
And lots of good pokemon too, but I would have liked Seviper too.

Any of those pokemon could be useful for a wide range of tasks... kicking things over or breaking things in a barrage of punches... but I guess those feats could be accomplished by other pokemon.

19th March 2006, 3:10 AM
Heh, Gligar, Glalie, and Poliwrath are in it. Just another way the Pokémon franchise favors ~*Commander Blizzard*~ :p

8D

J/k. Regardless, I'm not all that pleased with this. Granted, some Pokémon, like Nidorina or Nosepass, would just be dead weight. But they seem to be shoving in the general favorites and adding some minor Pokémon here or there ._. Some minor Pokémon are actually fan favorites(like Dragonair).

And, uh, wow, Johto neglect much? The list of Johto Pokémon is absurdly small in comparison to the other two Regions'. Note in particular the gap between Hoppip(No skiploom and Jumpluff ftw. What's the matter, are they not cute enough? ¬_¬) and Espeon. Lol Pokébias D=

Like it matters to me anyhow :rolleyes: This game looks absolutely horrific, worse than Trozei. I wasn't planning on getting it anyhow xD A pathetic list is just one more reason not to get it >P

Why are there so many legendaries in this thing? :<

Humph, I was hoping that we would have a wider access to the more common Pokemon. I still find it absurd that they would cut out so many of them. Also, what's the deal with offering Espeon and Umbreon but none of the other Eeveelutions? This list is incredibly contradictory to itself, barring the fact that they didn't even let some Pokemon in at all. :<

DarkThunder
19th March 2006, 4:18 AM
Drat. No Mewtwo, legendary birds Unown A-Z,Unown ?, Ho-oh, or Lugia. At least Deoxys got all it's forms. But no 4th generation pokemon.

Thores
19th March 2006, 5:44 AM
Wow, no 4th Gen Pokemon at all? That's kind of a surprise, considering this was a part of the "Road to Diamond and Pearl". Oh well. Least Elekid's in there.

19th March 2006, 9:08 AM
Too much TR neglect, and where's the Slowbro? You can't tell me Slowpoke is needed but the others aren't. I mean, it's a DS game, and I'm boycotting it until Diamond/Pearl come out (some boycott, eh?), but still...

So was Trozei and that has no 4th Gen Pokemon

The road to Diamond & Pearl was just a name given for the long time between Summer '05 and the release of DP at the end of this year. Nothing More

I'm aware that the name didn't mean that 4th Gen Pokes were a given, especially since Pokemon Trozei indeed didn't have any, but I thought since maybe Ranger would likely be a more epic game that Trozei, it would follow in the same vein of the Mysterious Dungeon games and feature every revealed D/P Poke in addition to past generations. I also thought there'd be a bigger chance of this happening since it's the spin-off being released closest to D/P (so far, unless we get a surprise one inbetween), and since the movie based on/showcasing the game has a small handful of D/P Pokemon in it.

So the name not meaning anything or not, it's still kind of a dissapointment.

I find that statement a bit harsh and not thought out. You're just judging the game by the inclusion of pokemon in it or from what you seen? To me to know if a game is good or not is to actually play the game and form your on opinion if it manages to appeal to you or not.

Like...Trozei...to me the game was very very fun and addicting...not because of if there will be pokemon from the 4th or any generationv for that matter. Play the game...then judge it. Sheesh I hate it when someone just judges things by their covers. Try the game first before the bashing when it comes out. You may end up loving it.

You rescue the Manaphy egg, but Manaphy doesn't make an appearance. 32/40 rating people, I doubt it's worse than Trozei/Link! (Which is good anyway).

Not that i'm Pokébias or anything (:P) but Johto does actually have less Pokemon in it to begin with, so you can't except Johto to ever have more Pokemon in a game than the others because it has a way lower number in the first place. But Johto does need love. Yay Torkoal's in it though, unlike Ash and the anime writers, they are Pokébias you know.

Thnkas C Blizz you got me loving that word now. LOL Pokébias XD

Hmm it looks kind of strange, I probably wont get it anyhow. Unless something magically turns me onto it, like a Torkoal flying out of the sky saying "Buy ranger or you've disgraced the holy sancity of all that is Torkoal," i'll probably be leaving this game on the shop shelf.

Also, I'm kinda confused. You keep the pokemon, right? You don't have to release them after you're done with them, right?

Arcanine! Oh glorious infernal beast ;_; It's good to see it in this game, along with some other favorites. The lack of 4th generation Pokemon doesn't surprise me, nor does it bother me - they never said that these games were going to be filled with Diamond and Pearl Pokemon. They're here to give us something to do while we wait for D/P. I don't see how they'd make a game any better or worse by being there or not.

You dont have teams in this game like in normal games

You need pokemon in order to emove obstacles. You capture them for that, once you use them they leave

Anyways, I kind of scanned over the list, and I must say, this game sounds like it will be somewhat lame, not being able to keep your Pokemon and all...But, I'll probably end up buying it anyways, I always fall for the pretty Pokemon boxart, dangit 8_8

XanderWolf
22nd March 2006, 9:47 PM
Thank. God.

Finally, a game not set around catching all 386+ Pokemon.

The fact that there's only 218 in this game makes me want it that much more. I already wanted it anyway, because the graphics look kickass compared to the older graphics for Pokemon games, and the storyline is entirely new and inventive for the series.

Kudos for Genius Sonority for not going the CATCH ALL OF THEM FTW route. :D!

Eszett
22nd March 2006, 10:03 PM
While I appreciate the angle you are taking on this matter, to be fair that aspect was never really emphasized concering this game from the get-go considering how the Pokemon are so ephemeral within your party. Keeping in mind that you won't even have the Pokemon for very long, it'd be nice to see you at least have access to as many Pokemon as possible.

Even if we must have a constrained list, I still do not like the egregious presence of legendaries in this list. I believe it would be much more fitting for a game based around the more natural aspect of Pokemon would focus more on the common, everyday Pokemon that breed and roam the wild in numbers greater than one. It'd be rather typical, depending on where you are, to find a wild sheep (which is missing from this game) rather than the glistening guardian of the waters (which is present in this game).

XanderWolf
22nd March 2006, 10:34 PM
I never claimed to say that Ranger was going to go the "Catch 'em all" route, or that it was how it was implied.

In fact, I was stating the exact opposite of that. o.o;

The fact that we don't have access to all 386 makes it that much more realistic to me. I mean, there are several million species of animals in the real world, but nobody ever sees them all. It just makes it more realistic.

Having the legendaries doesn't bother me, as they could easily play a important role in the game.

Either way, I prefer this cut-down list, and wouldn't ask any changes.. Except maybe the removal of Pikachu. :p

23rd March 2006, 3:44 AM
No, Ranger is NOT like the other games AT ALL. You dont battle & catch Pokémon

If you don't catch or battle wild pokemon in this game, then just what the hell do you do? DS has put out so many games that are all gimicky and silly, but never offer any real content (there are exceptions, Peach, Castlevania to name a few) but there are so many more games out there that are only made to proove that the touch screen is still operational. I don't know anything about this game, besides what I've read here, but I'm really not seeing anything too... I dunno, promissing I guess.

As for the number of Pokemon, I'm not too shocked to be honest. I was far more surprised to learn that MD had all 386, when I would have bet way before the game came out that it would only have a select handful of playable characters, and a few more that were enemies.

Serebii
23rd March 2006, 7:10 AM
Ranger is a completely different kind of game to the originals...its a different genre (ish) and still has some ample content

People need to stop thinking that its like the bloody RPGs

JazzJazz
23rd March 2006, 5:45 PM
I know it's different an all that jazz, but is there still some sort of Pokedex-like checklist to show how many pokemon you have "controlled" out of the total 218?

Serebii
23rd March 2006, 6:12 PM
Yep there is

Atomic Boo
23rd March 2006, 7:20 PM
Phew, Oddish, im safe.

The Anti-Ditto fans should be happy with the lack of it.

Alastor DMc
23rd March 2006, 7:53 PM
I'm not saying I want an RPG or anything of the sort, I'm just asking what the purpose of the game is. Is it just accept mission, get pokemon, clear pathway, go home or is there going to be more to it? Will there be boss battles, (and not just pokemon that are more difficult to control/get then others like Groudon) is there any sort of fighting, or is it just puzzle after puzzle with no big/real conflict. The daily life of a Pokemon Ranger.

Back on topic, there seems to be a lack of many bird pokemon. I suppose it'd be difficult for them to have flying pokemon around anyway, and capturing them with a spinning top seems a little silly/impossible, since they could just fly away.
