Original Thread: Running Circles Around the Fangames; Let's Play Pokemon Ranger



What is this game?

It's a Pokemon spinoff game with completely different gameplay. It was released to promote Nintendo DS' unique (at the time) touch screen feature. This game doesn't involve capturing pokemon to use them in battles (although there's still plenty of captures and battles).

Other notable features in this game include Pokemon on the overworld, fluid animations, non grid-based movement, a Pokemon transferable to another game, hard gameplay, the inability to keep a stable team, and a lack of random encounters.

Will you catch them all?

I will catch all Pokemon available in this game. Since this game came out before Diamond and Pearl, this game only has up to Gen 3 Pokemon.

What's the spoiler rule for this game?

Just use spoiler tags for things I haven't got to, including stuff from other games in the Pokemon Ranger series. As for other stuff in the franchise, don't bother using spoiler tags.

What is Pokemon?

Google it. And get out of that rock while you're at it.

Who's that guy with underlined text?

That's DoubleNegative, the co-commentator for this LP. They made several SSLP, one of which is the ongoing LP of Pokemon Insurgence. That fangame is by far the best out of the ones currently being LPed, so check it out!
