Ahh, Pokemon. Some of the games have been undeniably good. Some have been deniably good. Some have been unquestionably bad. Like Hey You, Pikachu! Where will Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia fall? Only time will tell.

In the meantime, this PDF I'm reading is telling me that Shadows of Almia is "a unique action-adventure series that features a fun, different way to capture Pokemon with the Nintendo DS stylus, which controls an item called the Capture Styler in the game. Players circle the Pokemon they want to catch by drawing circles around them on the touch screen." Oh, as opposed to circling them by drawing isosceles triangles around them.

The job of a Pokémon Ranger is never done: your duties will include fighting wildfires, rescuing people or even (even!) delivering an important package. Clearly, the game is providing "more adventure" than the previous Pokemon Ranger game. This is the first game in the Pokemon Ranger series to feature Pokemon from Diamond and Pearl, which is lucky, because if the first game had somehow had those critters before the games were released, it would be unequivocal proof of the existence of a higher power in our universe. And that would be a rather boring way for His Noodliness to reveal Himself.

Anyway, here's some screens, art, a logo and a trailer.
