Never played the ranger games before so it was nice to know that this had a great way to introduce you to how to play and had a decent story line but I did not care for the face that you can only have a certain amount of pokemon total and that every time you use a pokemon for an action required to proceed with the story line, they go away. Otherwise it was a fun game and worth playing once if you are a pokemon fan.
Here I thought it was a pokemon game which I read was about catching poemon, but it was more about drawing rings or loops called "capture rings" around the pokemon... Highly repetitive and quite boring, I now realize why used nintendo ds's keep having circles or loop scratches into their touch screens!! Games like this and legend of zelda: phatom hour glass are the cause of them... thankfully, I had screen guards for my ds... If you are going to get or play this game make sure you have those screen guards for your ds... Beyond drawing loops, rings or circles, I didn't see anything worth while, so caution is advised when trying out this game, and be careful of corperate hacks giving 10s or 8s, but the 8's could be just some hyper pokemon fans... In truth I found the game to be boring... Be careful about trying this one folks, and get some screen guards!
