View Full Version : The most aggravating Pokemon in The Ranger series

So, you play pokemon ranger, and then you happen to come across a pokemon that is seemingly hard to capture while you're having your stylus swung around in the screen in public like you're mentally challenged. Anyways, there is always a pokemon that stops you in your tracks and destroys your capturing device making you start over for your hard work. For me? hmm. LET ME LIST THEM
Ludicolo (my first hardest)
Charizard (practiced and successfully captured it)

Some other opinions on your aggravating Pokemon?

1st December 2010, 3:28 AM
Entei on the first pokemon ranger

1st December 2010, 8:52 PM
Abomasnow, ice temple. 3rd ranger game.

3rd December 2010, 8:29 PM
Steelix in the first ranger game is pretty hard. I found out a trick to capture him, but you got to be really lucky. First, make sure he's coiling up, and when he is, blast him with Plusle/Minun and use Medicham as a pokemon assist and there you go.

Also Ninjask from the first ranger game is insanely difficult to capture as well.

Salamence also gave me some grief too. But I figured out how to circumvent it. After failing for a few turns. I went back and proceeded to capture it and caught it on the first loop.

3rd December 2010, 9:13 PM
Salamence in the first one. Loads of loops and immunity to Plusle's zap... @_@

It didn't help that you had to get a certain number of loops to catch it. Thank goodness they replaced that with HP bars...

5th December 2010, 5:55 PM
Arceus in the past missions, when you're alone. Not only do you have to quickly take out 27 other pokemon, several of which are bosses, but you then have to take on Arceus; and with the brutal time limit (not to mention what he does, which I won't spoil here), it's very hard to capture him. I managed to capture him... eventually.

15th December 2010, 5:08 AM
gotta agree with salamence. So hard, especially when I cant touch the
middle of my touch screen LOL

17th December 2010, 6:31 PM
steelix and entei in the 1st ranger games all the other pokemon in the ranger games were easy for me

17th December 2010, 10:38 PM
also the other day metagross in Guardian signs gave me trouble.
He was hard.

18th December 2010, 8:46 PM
Honchkrow in Guardian signs. I try and try, but I can't catch up with the bloody bird even on my Latias/Latios...

19th December 2010, 10:52 AM
Try any of these challenges on a DSi XL. You have to draw circles as big as the moon.

19th December 2010, 3:35 PM
Salamence was hard since we had to do 22 loops on the guy... Does anyone believe that I managed to capture him during a bumpy car ride?

Then Charizard, me and my bro keep on taking turns with the DS trying to catch him, which we finally succeeded a few hours later...

Then Steelix... was just brutal... Luckily there was a Sneasel around. Cost me my styler energy, but a much extended line is worth it...

Luckily they changed it at the next games, otherwise I might grow hating the Ranger games instead of loving them.

Salamence and Steelix in the first game, definitely. To be honest, I never even beat Salamence myself, my cousin did it for me. Also, Steelix took me forever because of not being able to touch it at all. Thanks to the HP bars, none of the pokemon in the other two games even come close. Drapion in Shadows of Almia gets an honorable mention for being the toughest out of the other two games, but it's not nearly as tough as these two. Although I don't think I was able to beat Drapion without Cranidos. Also, am I the only one who thought Guardian Signs was too easy? I blew through it in 2 days and didn't die once. Some of the things I noticed that made it too easy were the upgrade system (the difficulty never seems to rise to accommodate the fact that you're always leveling up your styler), the lack of challenging attacks (like Drapion's puddles that linger long enough to drain his HP bar), and that the HP bar doesn't seem to drain as fast.

22nd December 2010, 10:27 PM
I've played all three Pokemon Ranger games and I've defeated them all. Throughout each game, I've faced tons of annoying Pokemon, but the Steelix from the first Ranger game is the most aggravating Pokemon, ever. I dislike that thing and when I was playing through the first Ranger game again recently, I almost chucked the DS at the wall because that Steelix was so hard to capture. Even when using a Fighting assist, I couldn't make the loops capture Steelix and my Capture Styler broke about 10 times in a row. I had to get help with that but I was still pretty mad about that Steelix.

22nd December 2010, 10:30 PM
Chaiziard from Ranger Signs? I mean, come on! No pokéasists? Not even Pichu? the little guy folows you on the game like. Anywhere!

Chaiziard from Ranger Signs? I mean, come on! No pokéasists? Not even Pichu? the little guy folows you on the game like. Anywhere!

If Charizard from Guardian Signs is the best you can come up with, then either you haven't played any of the other Ranger titles or you rely on Poke Assists too much. Because not only did I not have remotely any trouble with any of the pokemon in Guardian Signs, but I also barely had to use any Poke Assists the entire game. Am I the only person who thinks this game is a joke?

23rd December 2010, 12:41 AM
arceus and feraligatr

12th January 2011, 10:59 PM
In Shadows of Almia, unless you're using Poke assists(which I did), Regigigas > me. Drapion and Darkrai were fairly annoying as well. And let's not ever, EVER, forget the mighty Capture Arena.

on the third pokemon ranger game, i am stuck in the past at magmorter -_-
otherwise ive beaten the game and extra missions no problem
but i guess i need to find another player to get passed all these past temples
or buy another game, which id rather not do

26th January 2011, 2:56 PM
Pokemon Ranger 1 -
*1 - Camerupt - took me a couple years to get passed him... Until I realized I could use a styler instead of my fingers -_-
2 - Mr. Mime - Took forever... those barriers drove me nuts!
3 - Muk - those puddles...
4 - Gyrados - was tough to get to the point of using plusle's assist
5 - Ludicolo - tough avoiding the notes...
6 - Charizard - that fire is hard to avoid...
7 - Steelix - avoid touching him was tough
8 - Altaria - What a pain to avoid lowered points!
9 - Entei - for awhile anyway, but then discovered the secret short cut to getting him
10 - Mew (Toughest) - catching it in time was tough.

Rayquaza, Groudon, Kyogre, Suicune, and Raikou were the easiest Legendary Pokemon for me, and only took 1 try!

Pokemon Ranger and the Shadows of Almia -
Only Regiggigas - avoiding lowered points to 0 to get him takes many tries every time...

Pokemon Ranger and the Guardian Signs -
Only Metagross - with Recharge being very difficult, takes many tries without losing all points.

all 3 games had flaws, 2 and 3 has what the other needs instead...

26th January 2011, 7:24 PM
I'm stuck on Metagross in the lightning temple. Aswell as lacking time causing me to fail he is by far the hardest one I have had to endure in the ranger series. Makes me wish someone I knew had the game to help me out...

27th January 2011, 2:45 AM
Just wait to you get to the next level. It's even harder than metagross.

1st February 2011, 1:40 AM
I've only played the first Ranger game, but I'd have to say its definately Salamence. 22 Loops is not a small number, and his body size and constant disruption doesn't help.

Charizard wasn't that hard IMO. Steelix is easy once you figure out that you need the Sneasel. Flygon and the Kingdras were really easy. Entei was sort of hard, considering you have to go through Raikou and Suicune with no save, but he's manageable. Mew is IMPOSSIBLE unless you use the Shedinjas near the temple entrance.

1st February 2011, 2:00 AM
Entei was soooo hard

1st February 2011, 2:03 AM
The Deoxys Family!

1st February 2011, 2:06 AM
Drapion in the 2nd one was impossible for me :(

1st February 2011, 3:27 AM
The three beasts, Entei at the top. I had to get my husband to do that one for me. He's so good at games in general...

13th February 2011, 6:08 AM
Most of the bosses in the original were hard, especially Salamence. It took me days to capture it, while it only took one day, but many tries, to capture the others. Some of the bosses, like Kingdra, were pretty easy, but a lot of them were really hard... I never had too much trouble in the other two.

13th February 2011, 12:50 PM
Entei in the first game was extremely difficult for me. That Pokemon was the reason why I was stuck on the last boss for at least A YEAR.

I also find Magnezone on the second game to be really hard. I have heard other people says it`s really easy to catch, but I always have so much trouble with it. I nearly lost the first time I caught it.

13th February 2011, 1:11 PM
Sine the key word is "aggravating", I'd say Ludicolo, since you had to capture many of them.

(I only played the first Ranger game)

19th February 2011, 1:10 AM
Steelix, Charizard, and Entei. They were just painful.

26th February 2011, 12:56 AM
I agree on Ludicolo and any other pokemon with the music attacks. They aggrivate me so much!

26th February 2011, 1:42 AM
Having only played the first one and half of the third one(which I sold, due to it's terribleness), I'd have to say Ludicolo and Metagross.

No question.

5th March 2011, 6:10 PM
Steelix, Steelix, Steelix. The line isn't even big enough to circle him.

5th March 2011, 6:48 PM
Arceus in the Light Temple, with no other people to play with, it's a NIGHTMARE to pull off. You need to be lvl 70+ (I think that's when Styler Power growth slows down dramatically) to even consider doing it.

Pokemon Whisperer Natural Harmonia Gropius
5th March 2011, 6:51 PM
The annoying steelix in the first game as well as many others. :(

22nd March 2011, 1:35 AM
The light temple in guardian signs is giving me problems. i can't even get close to arceus. i'm wondering if this it is physically possible to do this single player.

This thread begins and ends with Steelix.

9th April 2011, 4:46 AM
Most of the past bosses are terrible, especially on 1 player.

29th May 2011, 9:01 PM
Most of the past bosses are terrible, especially on 1 player.

What's the deal with Salamence, okay he require's a big amount of loops but he isn't that hard. Charizrd was much harder. And let's not forget Purple Eyes Mewtwo.

29th May 2011, 9:03 PM
On the first ranger
Rayquaza was a B***h the hardest in my oppnion
Steelix was solid.

11th June 2011, 8:33 AM
try to catch 4 grimers at once with no poke asists. died 6 times in a row when i got to the point of plusle.
But charizard... dont get me started

2nd July 2011, 1:30 AM

7th July 2011, 10:24 PM
First Pokemon Ranger
Charizard - UGH! that fire type got me off the game for MONTHS!!!!
Rayquaza - took me four tries, but he was still hard
Entei (second try) - he was really hard, but I captured him on my second try
Mew - he kept teleporting everywhere!!!!
(I don't know how I did it, but I captured that Steelix on my first try)

the next two Ranger games where a breeze, though

10th July 2011, 2:10 PM
Steelix in Ranger 1, never had any real problems with anything else since. Steelix took me... so long...

3rd August 2011, 1:26 AM
In pokémon ranger 2 it had to be Giliscor because when you get close to capturing him/her he goes all hyper and breaks your capture line.

3rd August 2011, 1:35 AM
It took me an age to capture Steelix, it was too damn big! I caught several Poliwhirl to deal with Steelix and I still barely managed to capture it after many attempts.

5th August 2011, 1:29 AM
,y new hardest pokemon:

ranger 1:
1. metagross
2. charizard
3. salamence

ranger 2:
1. regigigas
2. darkrai
3. froslass

ranger 3 (present):
1. feraligator
2. arceus
3. mewtwo

ranger 3 (as far as I got in past)
1. Dusknoir
2. Feraligatr
3. Lucario

5th August 2011, 4:01 AM
I'm really bad at the past missions in the 3rd ranger...it took me ages just to beat tangrowth, mostly cuz of the time limit.

6th August 2011, 1:42 PM
really random? i had to be leel nine to beat him, but feraligatr, dusknoir, lucario, magnezone and arceus are really hard. especiall when you have 30 seconds to catch arceus

6th August 2011, 1:55 PM
steelix took me forever to capture but the charizard in the temple was really annoying :/

6th August 2011, 2:06 PM
Steelix oddly wasn't to hard for me, just CHAR-I-ZARD and Rayquaza caused me so much heartache.

6th August 2011, 2:19 PM
in almia, everything was really easy because all you needed was a sheildon

6th August 2011, 5:02 PM
for rayquaza, i beat him in 2 tries. all you need is flareon

7th August 2011, 4:23 PM
Most of the things I remember were most difficult was only in the 1st game. Sure, Regigigas was hard on the 2nd game, but mostly Charizard, Flygon, and Steelix.

26th August 2011, 3:02 AM
I only played the first one so..

Not in order

1. Steelix - This pokemon was so dumb it's so long so it was hard to catch. Luckily all I had to do was paralyze it and use Medichan -.-

2.Salamence - I seriously hate this one. Took me a few moments to realize what the pattern was. So I finally caught it ;_;

3. Raquezza - This pokemon was so mad loooooooong. Every time you try to circle it, if u touch it the capture breaks =_=. Also his dumb tailwinds. Luckily I had Gengar scare him and got him (3 HP and was close ;D)

4. Entei (Temple) - I'll admit it was hard. First he has flames all over him so u have to circle him till the flames are gone. Then we goes berserk and makes flumes all over the place....Had to catch it with Vaperon =_=

28th August 2011, 12:24 PM
Regigigas, Darkrai and Regice made me completely nuts.

Lord Serperior
30th August 2011, 2:57 PM
Past bosses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:497:

8th September 2011, 1:42 AM
What do you mean - Past bosses?

Anyways, steelix wasn't to hard for me, all you needed was a medicham and plusle.

Kyogare in the 1st one was hard for me, It kept on squirting water all over the place, I w\couldent get a single line in. And when I did, It just attacked it. Took me a month to capture it. I also find lucario in the 2nd is hard, even as the 1st guardian.

8th September 2011, 2:20 AM
One word:

22nd September 2011, 6:46 AM
Steelix in ranger 1. Because you cant touch it.
Ninjask for honorable mention.
Drapion is the hardest boss in Ranger 2, mainly because you have to capture 5 pokemon right before the battle, & around that time, your has what, 40ish energy?
Regigigas is a close second, each step is 18 damage to you styler, though assist make him easy as a Bidoof.
Metagross spammed shields & lasers like nobody's business. Took multiple tries & took forever. You lose all you assist, thank to that 4 point rotating lazer.
Metagross back in the past gets honorable mention.

Wait a minute...
In ranger two, when catching regice wait ten seconds, then try to capture. Hardest boss ever.

5th December 2011, 5:53 AM
Arceus in the past on Guardian Signs. Period. Nothing else comes close. Everything in Shadows of Almia was a breeze, bar Regigigas, who's simple with a Shieldon. Ranger 1 doesn't really register when you've completed every battle in it without Assists (as I have. Well, apart from that durn Mew, and Suicune. But meh). And everything in the main story of Guardian Signs was simple as well, thanks to Pichu, who's immune to being damaged for some reason. Then you go to the past. Feraligatr is nasty, Dusknoir is ridiculous, and then there's Arceus... My friend and I finally managed to get him with 7 seconds left. And we were both Lv.58+.

8th December 2011, 10:18 PM
Voltorb is the most aggravating in my opinion

19th December 2011, 2:05 AM
I had extreme problems with ludicolo and charizard in the first game,but that that was a long time ago.In shadows of almia everything was easy. The entire story of guardian signs was easy, and my only current problem is Dexys in the past. I still don't know how to beat it. Never even made it angry.

19th December 2011, 2:09 AM
Muk (Ranger 1) Was so hard for me and Drapion on ranger 2 took me about 20 tries

17th January 2012, 8:22 PM
Steelix and entei by far -_-

25th January 2012, 11:41 PM
Entei on the first pokemon ranger

I totally agree, the second time though! After catching raikou and SUICUNE straight before!!!

Look in my sig for details

Primal Crusader V
26th January 2012, 3:12 AM
Steelix and entei by far -_-

Of course. I'll have to agree with you on Steelix. Have you noticed it takes up about 80% of the touch screen while you try to capture it? Nearly rigged, I say

28th January 2012, 11:39 PM
First: Charizard, second round (I haven't gotten past that - the only Pokémon game I haven't beaten!)

Second: Garchomp, scyther, scizor, GOLBAT, skorupi, staravia, and all the others that charge or follow or attack, but Gligar beats them all tenfold.

Third: They were all too easy. (Which tells you I haven't yet done all the past missions.)

Wait, wait, wait. I need to edit this.

Second... ANYTHING in the Capture arena, Togekiss, Garchomp (attacks for ten points of damage and hard to avoid), and GLIGAR.
I am seriously disliking Gligar. Gligar is awful. Next time, I'm taking Snover. >:(

6th February 2012, 5:50 AM
First Ranger game, Steelix, by far. I even powered up with Dark, which doubles the length of the line, and that was still the hardest thing I had ever done. Eventually I had to use an Action Replay, and that still took 5 tries, dang it.

13th April 2012, 10:10 AM
Deoxys in ranger 3, hes alright but the thing is capturing all those friggin agrron, not to mention having to do it in multiplayer!

22nd April 2012, 3:20 PM
Rampardos in the second game really annoyed me so much that I stopped playing for a while. After that, my boyfriend just did the hard pokémon with me, finishing with Darkrai ^^; need to replay it again and do stuff for myself XD

27th April 2012, 3:50 AM
I know most of you hated Steelix, but he actually wasn't that bad. All you had to do was use a fighting assist which makes it SO MUCH EASIER! (I think you only have to do 5 loops with it on) Aside from that, Entei and the Beasts in general were annoying. I don't know how you beat them without powers.

My god, Ranger 1 was just full of these:

1. CHARIZARD (both times)
3. MR. MIME.
4. On a much lesser extent, Billy's Tyranitar, Pupitar and Larvitar. Nice music.

The list goes on and on...

Ranger 2... Am I the only person who found Drapion easy? Cresselia and Heatran were MUCH tougher for me.

Ranger 3 was a joke. I'm not mentioning any because there is no need.

I never did beat the first Ranger game, but oh god, Charizard is an nightmare. 0:0

2nd May 2012, 9:48 AM
Charizard, Salamence, and Arceus

Entei in the first ranger game. It really pissed me off.

Entei in the first ranger game. I remember what I was thinking when I was trying to capture him. I was thinking he needed to die. XD

Well, I didn't get too far in Ranger...but in my experience, Steelix. How are you supposed to circle that thing even ONCE, much less 7 times in a row?!

30th May 2012, 4:38 PM
omg charizard was a b***** to get in the first ranger series....it was so annoying :/

31st May 2012, 3:51 AM
Charizard and Steelix in the first game. Took me about a month to get pass each one of them.

8th June 2012, 5:38 PM
Deoxys, him multiplying himself is annoying

In the three games:
Ranger 1: Charizard, the first time. Funny enough, I didn't have a problem with him second time round, strangely. Steelix is hard until you finally get a moment to strike, and the final three story mode bosses are hard if Plusle/Minun aren't at the ready and you don't know, for example, that you have to circle Entei to get rid of the flames surrounding it.
Oh, and Billy's Tyranitar, Pupitar and Larvitar battle. Luckily the music's good.
Ranger 2: Drapion. It's the only boss I had problems with. Luckily it was on my favourite part of the game. I didn't play post-story of Shadows of Almia because I lost interest in it, so I don't know of any more bosses. I do wish I could play Liberate the Tower!, but it's sadly gone now and there's no good footage of it on YouTube that's not in Japanese.
Ranger 3: From the story mode, Metagross and its laser spamming. However, it can't even come CLOSE to Arceus in the past missions. That thing is INSANE.

30th June 2012, 10:12 PM
Easily the hardest Pokemon I had to get was the Charizard in the first game, especially after you lose to it once and no longer have your partner Pokemon. At that point it becomes beyond insanely difficuly to circle it the correct number of times without it attacking or breaking your line. Arceus in the last Ranger game is a pretty close second, but I've only faced it with 2 or more people so 1v1 it's probably harder.

30th January 2013, 6:33 PM
Beedrill was too annoying in Ranger 2!

18th February 2013, 6:00 PM
Salamence. That thing nearly drove me insane. Eventually I had actually caught it. But I forgot to save, took on Charizard (also a total struggle) and failed. When I realize I hadn't saved, it was hard for me to suppress my pure rage and anger at myself for not saving. It also was hard because it was the middle of the night.

In Ranger 2, I have to say Drapion. That thing held a barricade on my progress in Almia. It was so infuriating! In fact, it might just be the reason my DS has a really floppy top screen.

In Ranger 3, I haven't seen Arceus in the past yet (but I still have the event in the present) because I'm stuck at that Weavile in the Ice Temple. So hard with infuriating speed, even when I have a Blaziken partner.

20th February 2013, 8:07 PM
Charizard, Rayquaza, and Steelix. The 2 because they were long and Charizard just because of its flames the killed me almost everytime. But Entai wasnt that far behind them. With the flames in the ground every second of the fight x:

21st February 2013, 2:16 AM
I slided through the second and third games with ease, but that first game... I still haven't beaten it and it's been out since, what, 2007?

I have no idea how I did, but like on my fourth try I managed to beat Steelix but those Mr Mimes back in that factory, gosh! They are just so difficult! I've actually got two versions of the first game (for some reason, my first one I'm playing a a girl and the second I'm a boy), and on the boy one I can't get past those Mr Mimes, while I somehow did it on my girl one.
I'm currently on the hardest part on any game ever on the girl one, the Team Go-Rock Squad base, those damn red lights...

Yeah, those Mr. Mime were impossible, I was so happy they were replaced by Gastly later on though.

That Steelix was impossible too. The Red lights were hard at first, but there's a really simple pattern. Justvlook at it for a while and you'll figure it out.

But, the bosses of that mission aren't all too hard... It's the Lastoise/Blaziken combo and the Gen II Starter combo that are pure hell to beat.

8th March 2013, 11:51 PM
I, personally, had the most trouble w/ Purple Eyes' Garchomp... It took me forEVER to beat it the first time playing through. I also have trouble w/ Ho-oh in each playthrough.

1st April 2013, 5:35 PM
I have 3. 1 is a scared buziel that i cant keep up with when it runs and the double team of sharpedo. also agitated raikou. All of these are in pokem ranger gurdian signs.

8th April 2013, 4:38 PM
Registeel is IMO the hardest Pokemon to 'capture' throughout the series. Those annoying balls just keeps on damaging my styler.

11th May 2013, 5:15 PM
Well, good question.

Froslass. You want to know how long it took me to beat that thing? Weeks. Those Ice Type attacks show no justice.

4th July 2013, 6:29 AM
In the first pokemon ranger, I succesfully captured Steelix, Salamence, Charizard, Entei, etc. It was a terrible mess, almost impossible.
But I reached the end, where you need to capture Raikou, Suicune and Entei in a row. It is truly impossible.
No seriously, I couldn't even capture Raikou. I did once, but got raped by Suicune.. What's the point of making a game so hard? D:

22nd July 2013, 11:28 PM
Loudred from the original game, not difficulty, just how to get to it. It was on a ledge and you had to slide down ice and pick the right hole, took too long...

23rd July 2013, 1:24 AM
It's been a while since I've played any of them, but soloing (past) Arceus on a timed mission designed for four playersis one of the most difficult things ever, at least it isn't like PR1 where you have to do all the circles in one shot. I used a maxed out Gallade to do it, but, good grief, those Laser Beams of Doom everywhere are just insane.

12th October 2013, 1:46 PM
that goddamn drapion in PR:SA. it was too much.

12th October 2013, 4:05 PM
that goddamn drapion in PR:SA. it was too much.

I agree, I had so much trouble with that the first few times.

1st game:
*Charizard--didn't seem as bad the second time around, for some reason
*Steelix--I gave up on the game for about two months because of this guy
*Mr Mime--I gave up on the game for almost a year
*Final battle--I still haven't managed to beat it
The second game had its hard battles (Drapion was a pain), but overall it was a billion times easier. With a few exceptions, if you wiped out in a battle, you were just being careless.

17th January 2014, 1:53 AM
I was playing my Japanese Shadows of Almia for fun a few days ago and I challenged Regigigas at Hippowdon Temple and that thing was dreadful. I had forgotten how tough that thing is to catch; I accidentally moved the stylus towards one of Regigigas's shockwaves and that did a lot more damage than I expected, not to mention all its other abilities. I eventually gave up because even with multiple assists, it was a waste of time. I officially loathe Regigigas now.

I've only played the first two, so I'll list my least favourites from both of them.

Flygon- It speeds around the screen at an unbelievable rate and is extraordinarily hard to catch up to.
Salamence- You have to draw 50 or more loops continuously without the chain breaking while avoiding its attacks. Forget Steelix, this was the hardest capture for me.
Steelix- It was still hard, though. It moves too erratically for it to be an easy boss.

Shadows (note: I have never fought Regigigas, so it will be exempt):
Rampardos- It was more in my childhood, but I could never defeat it without having to capture more Pokémon for their Poke Assists. Funny thing is; in my last playthough, I found it extremely easy.
Drapion- Same as Rampardos and for the same reason: I had a hard time defeating it, and when I finally did, my wrist was aching from the pain of so many circles and so many failed tries. I think that time was luck.
Bastiodon- I genuinely hate fighting these. I find their attacks unpredictable and deadly, even in the overworld.

3rd May 2014, 4:09 PM
Drapion and Ramphardos (Shadows of Almia). These two were almost impossible to catch. I quit the game in rage >_>

3rd May 2014, 5:12 PM
It's been awhile since I played Pokémon Ranger, but I don't think I had more trouble than with Entei and Raikou in the first game. It could be that I just didn't know what I was doing though, while the other games I had more practice for.

3rd May 2014, 6:43 PM
Haven't played much of the Rangers game, though what little I did with the first one was fun. From where I got to in that game, capturing a Charizard was hell for me, but that's probably because I was playing an emulator version. lol

7th May 2014, 12:02 AM
From the first game, someone I knew couldn't do |the Charizard, and they had been trying for like 5 hours. I said it was easy and they didn't believe me, so they gave it to me to do it. Did it first go 'cus I'm a boss, and it shut them up too

29th May 2014, 3:29 PM
I have played only Pokemon Rangers: Guardian Signs, so can't say about other two games. Butthere was some difficult and aggravating opponents in Guardian signs too

Garchomp: that this just sweeps through screen, it was hard to keep up or catch it
Metagross: This was pain. It shooted those lasers like mad. And ten damage from hit, it was terrible opponent
Charizard: No Poke assist, really?!
Regigigas: Well, this was jus annoing, not really hard.

Then there is all Past Mission boss battles, like Tangrowth. Got stuck there about year before capturing it.

29th May 2014, 5:02 PM
I only played Shadows of Almia, and that stupid Drapion drove me insane. I've replayed the game more then once and I've been able to complete every other freaking mission in the game, but I always have to get someone else to do Drapion for me. And this is why I loathe the thing...

30th May 2014, 8:43 AM
Steelix cuz the line isn't even big enough to circle him

1st June 2014, 5:51 AM
In Shadows of Almia, I have to say Drapion. It was really tough at the first battle.

Skylander Sylveon
23rd June 2014, 6:33 AM
Shadows of Almia, Cranidos! D:

Whatever I used, he just kept missing and dodging and when I FINALLY almost got him, he just killed me. :C

Almost set me off the series. xD

24th June 2014, 8:53 AM
I've only played guardian signs and shadows of almia, but the ones I got stuck on were Drapion, Rampardos and occasionally Regigigas in SoA, and Ditto in GS. Man, ditto's a bugger in that one!

24th June 2014, 9:44 AM
I must say that Rampardos in Shadows of Almia was my biggest enemy. ._.

I still can't beat it till this day.

Kitt Geekazaru
24th June 2014, 3:04 PM
In the first one, I never remember having any problems with anything besides Entei. BUT I to this day have never captured Rayquaza.
In the second one Drapion and Rampardos were easy. Regigigas, Darkrai, and anything in the Arena were hard. Honorable mention goes to Celebi for being nearly impossible to catch up to.

28th June 2014, 4:53 PM
And actually, speaking of Drapion, I was trying to look for my SoA game, but I realized my brother was using it in the toilet. lol

He was facing Drapion, and he yelled a couple times in there. xD
