Difference between revisions of "Pokémon Ranger series"

The first game in the series, {{ga|Pokémon Ranger}}, was released in 2006. As the last game released during [[Generation III]], it primarily features Pokémon available in that generation, but like the other Ranger games, it can communicate with the [[Generation IV]] [[core series]] games to transfer over the {{p|Manaphy}} {{pkmn|Egg}}. The movie ''[[M09|Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea]]'' was released a few months later to promote the game. The manga [[W Mission Story: Pokémon Ranger - the Comic: Double Mission]], set in the canon of [[Pokémon Adventures]], was also based off the game. In addition, a {{OBP|Pokémon Ranger|Ranger series}} was featured in [[PMRS62|the sixty-second chapter]] of the [[Pokémon Ruby-Sapphire]] manga.
[[Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia]] is the second game in the Pokémon Ranger series, and was released in 2008. The game primarily features Pokémon from Generation IV. An two-part anime special consisting of ''[[DP071|Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! (Part 1)]]'' and ''[[DP072|(Part Two)]]'' featuring the game's [[Kellyn|male protagonist]] aired near the game's release as part of the main anime series. [[Darkrai Mission Story: Pokémon Ranger Vatonage - the Comic]] is a manga adaptation based upon the game.
