The Societea (Japanese: ティーパーティーTea Party) is a criminal group in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs. The player first meets all four of them separately at various points during the game. Later, they are seen on Sophian Island, where they are having a tea party together and are thought to be nice people. Later, it is discovered that the group is responsible for controlling the actions of the Pokémon Pinchers.
They were a group of thieves many years earlier, but faded into obscurity as they aged. They revived their group and took control of the Pokémon Pinchers in hopes of obtaining eternal youth. They are known for controlling Steelhead and for vaporizing Dolce Island in Oblivia. They are found in the Sky Fortress and are the last bosses of the game.
