Pokemon Ranger: The Road to Diamond and Pearl review

Range over 200 Pokemon in this unique DS adventure game

The Poke Assists, as they're called, are an interesting wrinkle, but in most cases faster scribbling will always win the day. Capturing Pokemon will not only place the creature by your side, but also nets you experience points that will increase the damage your Capture Styler can take and increase the length of the line you can draw. Fortunately, the developers were aware that Pokemon Ranger's fundamentals couldn't support a particularly long game, and as a result the game's pacing is snappy and it all ends before you can get bored of it.

DescriptionPokemon Ranger is relatively an ultimately forgettable action/adventure, but is an amusing dual-screen diversion until the next real Pokemon game arrives.
