==In the games==
Pokémon Rangers begin as '''Student Rangers''' (Japanese: '''がくせいレンジャー''' ''Student Ranger''), and after graduation, they become '''Area Rangers.''' (Japanese: '''エリアレンジャー''' ''Area Ranger''). Pokémon Rangers known as Area Rangers primarily operate out of [[Ranger Union]]s in [[Fiore]], [[Almia]] and [[Oblivia]] where nature is held in higher regard than in other [[regionsregion]]s. However, a rare promotion can be gained where they become [[Top Ranger]], earning many new privileges. Pokémon Rangers use [[Capture Styler]]s to calm and control wild Pokémon to help them solve ecological problems, defeat criminals using Pokémon to commit crimes, and arrest Pokémon poachers, acting as a sort of cross between a police officer and park ranger.
Pokémon Rangers usually have only one Pokémon - known as their "Partner", that is with them at all times, and has been trained to a high level. Pokémon Rangers do not usually send Pokémon to battle each other directly, but generally use the Pokémon with them to power up the energies and extra settings on their Capture Stylers or to distract wild or enemy Pokémon with attacks that are not directly offensive. These powers are known as [[Poké Assist]] and are activated by having the Pokémon Ranger absorb a wild Pokémon's power into their Capture Styler, where upon their Styler gains extra abilities depending on the Pokémon's [[Type]].

''Pokémon Rangers'' appear in ''[[W Mission Story: Pokémon Ranger - the Comic]]'' manga, which is based on the W-Mission of ''Pokémon Ranger''. The main characters of the game, [[Lunick]] and [[Solana]], are the protagonists here as well.
