    I think the Dragonite is irrelevant. :P
    Anyway, finally came up! I wonder what the pages say... :P
    Although I'm not sure, I think the name is BATONERJI or something...
    I guess we have to wait until further translations come up.
    By the way. We all see the WiFi logo, no? What could WiFi be used for... :D

    I'm both happy and sad
    happy that Pokemon Ranger got a remake
    sad because Hinata isn't in it ;_; she was my hero!
    ....
    then again, I could always hack her in........

    the new rangers look boring IMO and too young. Brown hair cant compare to the sheer awesomeness of turquoise hair. Sorry but no.

    I just hope it's better than the first one, because if it isn't, then I don't want it. >_>


    The Sinnoh Battle Frontier is among them, and an old foe is back for revenge. With Rain's new companions, as well as some old friends by his side, can he win this challenge and stop Shinsei Muto before it's too late?

    Mystery Dungeon 2 has already proven that a game can be remade under a new name, added with the latest batch of Pokémon and some minimal features that involve Wi-Fi, and that alone will earn it a release date. I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you; whatever provokes the Pokémon Company to authorize the remaking of games that are only two years old, and for the same system as the original game, it does not seem to be the prospect of improved gameplay.

    Ranger 2 even borrows the idea of younger protagonists from XD. The part about XD that is sorely missing from both this game and Mystery Dungeon 2, is the alteration to the predecessor game. XD dispensed with Colosseum's Battle Mode in favor of focusing solely on Story Mode; that alone was proof of Genius Sonority's desire to separate the new game from the old one.

    What can be said in this case? The addition of Sinnoh Pokémon? That kind of addition is merely a simple process in which the original Ranger is blended with Diamond and Pearl; it happens to require little to no thought. It would be equally justified to dedicate Ranger 2 to the 173 Pokémon from the previous generations that were not featured in the original game; how innovative would that be?

    Sweet. Pokemon Ranger 2!

    Though... aren't these rangers a bit too young for this job? They look like Ash's age.

    They change the protagonists in every game, I'm not surprised Hinata and the other guy from the last game aren't returning. They look like they're 10.

    Anyway, who wants to bet the female ranger is going to make an appearance in the anime now to advertise this game?

    I'm calling Shaymin being obtainable through a special mission in this :p

    Remember that Japanese Ranger required the movie promotion (that is, attending an event) in order for the Manaphy egg to be obtained. It was not like the non-Japanese Ranger or European Channel, in which the respective event Pokémon (Manaphy/Jirachi) was made readily available; Japan places importance on the movie promotions (it was because of the Jirachi movie promotion that the Jirachi download option was removed from Japanese Channel).

    This game is extremely unlikely to be linked to the Shaymin movie, since Diamond and Pearl are already available (and have been for over a year's time). The only reason that Manaphy was made available through Ranger was that, at the time, there were no games that could accommodate it instead. To use Ranger 2 for the movie promotion would be adding a completely unnecessary, cumbersome and needlesly expensive (Ranger 2 + second DS) intermediate stage between Shaymin's data and the Diamond/Pearl game. The Pokémon Company would only be damaging ticket sales if they decided to do that (the Manaphy movie proved that quite well, and that case was semi-justifiable).

    Nintendo still likes money! :p and I think this also may unlock the Darkrai quest in this game though out of box.

    Also though.. I don't see any ware on this that says it's a remake... so I'm confused where everyone is getting that info from.

    I see that is says it has all 17 pokemon types to get as a partner pokemon this time, and I see that you play two ranger students... you have quests..

    I'm gonna also guess that there is a ranger tournament because the name "Batonargie" sounds like something the Japanese would name a tourney in an Anime. (Unless it is a store where you buy more styler.. lol)

    I don't know.:p I wish you could just make your own partner or make friends with a Pokemon and switch partners.. I'll probably get this because it looks interesting, I just don't think I like ranger.

    (Because I'm thinking about wanting there to be mysteries in the quest where you have to figure out who did it or how to save someone.. and I wanted to have up to three partner pokemon at a time where you can do battle with them as a ranger (except it is different) The pokemon themselves choose the moves they do and you decide where they should go and if they should defend, help a partner, or attack... And the evil forces you face don't have honor and they attack you trying to break your capture stylus so you need to guard yourself also while trying to break theirs. (Which frees the monster but because they have "evil" stylus or whatever leaves them confused making you have to calm them with your styler)

    That would be a ranger I'd want to play... oh and the POLICE COME AND ARREST PERPETRATORS AFTER, lol (I know they don't arrest evil teams in the main games either, but you see more powerful than the police in those games anyways so.. yeah)

    I guess I'm thinking of Pokemon Ranger mixed with Detective Conan. How awesome would that be
