    Default My Pokemon Ranch

    It was just released on the U.S. Virtual Console today. I downloaded it and it's not bad. I completely forgot that when you put a Pokemon in the ranch it takes it out of the DS cartridge as oppose to copying it. But you can always put it back provided you haven't started a new file. I see it as an alternative to Pokemon Box R/S since you can store countless amounts of Pokemon to the game. Plus a lot of them look really funny in chibi form.

    I imagine some of you have downloaded this as well. What do you think of it?

    I'm just wondering, what happens if you store a Pokemon and play a new game? Does that Pokemon stay trapped at the ranch forever?

    Yep. And you're explicitly warned on both your DS and Wii when you transfer that that will be their fate if you dare to restart your DS game. Sucks that you can't use it to transfer between carts, or save the Pokemon and start a new game, but...eh.

    Overall...I like it. For what it is, it's nice. It doesn't pretend to be anything more than a re-imagined storage game. And watching the Pokemon interact is fun for...a little while. For a $10 game, it's a good buy.

    It's pretty cute. Any more than 1000 points, and it wouldn't be worth it, though.

    Would have liked more interactivity, like the ability to control my Mii and directly interact with the Pokémon (giving them food, petting them, commanding them to use attacks, etc.). Also, does anyone know if it's possible to view a Pokémon's status page while they're in the Ranch? That's kind of a basic thing and it's pretty lame if you can't.

    I have seen a few fun things while watching it. Namely Hayley riding around on my Stantler and all twenty Pokémon forming a giant totem pole. There was also a funny bit where my Hoothoot was interested in Hayley's Turtwig and Turtwig fled in fear. XD Just wish watching wasn't the only thing I could do.

    What? Really? That makes zero sense. Box could do it, there's no reason this shouldn't be able to.

    Apparently Weavile told Piplup to ride on its head. I also got the totem pole. For some reason the Attention thing where they all look at the camera kind of freaks me out.

    They want to force you to buy two copies of the same game rather than being able to restart. Greedy bastards.

    I just got Hayley's Pikachu. She asked for the Abomasnow I just brought. The whole BBS thing to get you to complete your Pokedex is great. :O

    thats a bad flaw, but I'm not planning on starting a new game on my pearl, so thats good.

    I find this game very amusing. It kinda gives you the feel of what your pokemon do when your not around. I especially like the photo option. I took a picture of a Bulbasaur riding a Torterra and it looks kinda cute.

    I'd like to ask: I've seen this screenshot going around 4chan, but it's this pic with Croagunk staring directly at the "camera". Does anyone happen to have it or a pic of a Ranch'd Croagunk doing pretty much the same thing?

    I got Ranch today. Its so cute...I really like it. What sucks though is that during the first day you can only store 20 pokemon. But I solved that by skipping a day on the wii. Now I can hold 300 lol. But I only have around 150. 100 more and I get Phione ^^

    I didn't know this... So, the Ranch practically files which Pokemon came from which cart, or can you only transfer from one carthage only? Meh... I wish it was more like Box... It was really comfortable to have SUCH space, and transfering the Pokemon from one version to another was so easy! Now collecting every single monster there is in the Ranch will have no point, considering that each one will only be able to go back to the cart it came from... :(

    I'm still buying it though. For 1000 Wii Points it's more than great. At least it has some nice visuals and I can put the 9999 eggs I have due to breeding. Nice! Looking forward to European release.
