Even in a franchise that has tried a lot of different genres and game concepts, Pokemon Ranger managed to stand out. Its combination of wildlife protection and a wildly different mechanic for capturing Pokemon made Pokemon Ranger quite a unique spinoff and a strong part of the Nintendo DS library. Nevertheless, Pokemon fans haven’t seen hide nor hair of Pokemon Ranger since 2010, when Pokemon Ranger: Guardian Signs became the third and seemingly final installation in the franchise. Instead, various developers have moved on to exploring all kinds of other angles on the Pokemon franchise, like the recent MOBA Pokemon Unite.
