Default Pokemon Ranger: Shadows Of Almia





Quote:
Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia (ポケモンレンジャー バトナージ, Pokemon Renjā Batonāji?) is an action/role-playing video game developed by HAL Laboratory for the Nintendo DS video game console. It is the sequel to the Pokémon Ranger video game, also for the DS.It was announced at E3 2008 that the game would be released in the United States under the title Shadows of Almia on November 10, 2008.
The game features around 270 Pokémon, including new Pokémon which were not featured in the original, from Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. The game utilizes the Nintendo WiFi Connection.
Quote:
The game takes place in the land of Almia, where the player starts out as a rookie Pokémon Ranger who has just graduated from Ranger School. Like in the previous game, the player can choose to be a male or female character, however unlike the original, this choice does not affect the selection of the player's partner Pokémon.


Partners
Unlike the original, Shadows of Almia allows the player to choose their partner Pokémon. In the previous game, the partner was decided based on the players chosen gender (Minun for male, Plusle for female). Players start with either Pachirisu, Munchlax, or Starly, and the other 14 partners (as well as the two partners that were not chosen at the beginning) are obtainable either through sub-quests or in-game events, and once captured, can be switched to be the player's partner at any time. There are 17 possible partners, one for each Pokémon type. The possible partners are:

* Pachirisu (Electric)
* Munchlax (Normal)
* Starly (Flying)
* Turtwig (Grass)
* Chimchar (Fire)
* Piplup (Water)
* Misdreavus (Ghost)
* Snover (Ice)
* Mime Jr. (Psychic)
* Gible (Dragon)
* Croagunk (Poison)
* Kricketot (Bug)
* Sneasel (Dark)
* Cranidos (Rock)
* Shieldon (Steel)
* Machop (Fighting)
* Hippopotas (Ground)

surprisingly enough,this was a spinoff that never quite got my attention.
i thought it was fun and different,but it didnt catch my attention much.
i will though,try this version out and see how it goes from there.

It looks more interesting than the first one atleast. The first one I do recall many complaints about the Capture thing, and after a while it really takes a toll on your hand ._. And the game just looked 'wtf' to me, so I never looked into it. This one seems like an improvement, but unfortunately Im very tight on money right now and cant afford any extra luxuries for myself ._. another time perhaps.

I don't like how they simplified the capture

I liked how hard it was in the first game
"WTF 13 LOOPS IN ONE GO"
now it's
"LOL 2 LOOPS NOW I WAIT A COUPLE OF SECONDS, AND DO MORE LATER"

Where are you at in the game?

Some of the bosses are quite hard IMO, e.g. Heatran, Spiritomb, etc, they were difficult. :X

I'm at Team Dim Sun's Head Quarters... the oil thingy. o.o

I never played the first one, so I don't know...

But I can tell you that so far, I "died" a total of four times, because I was caught off guard by the bosses 'techniques'
ie: drapion, heatran, uh ... and there's other two I forget. :X

edit: spiritomb was super annoying too, so I think i 'died thar'
