How do you get this game, or channel, or wiiware, whatever... how do you get this on your wii. I've been reading around the forums that some people already have it. And I was just wodnering how you get it.

I think it's a wii channel… and you have to buy it like you do with the retro games using wii points.

Seems like 12 May for US it unconfirmed though.… and maybe UK too… not too sure… Pokémon Snap was released at the same time as the US version I think in the retro section. xD

Pokemon Ranch is a WiiWare game, the people who already have it have JPN Wii's as it's the only version of the console that has Wii Ware, also WiiWare games will only be avaible through the Wii Ware channel which will be the same as the Wii Shop so get them wii points in.

It looks neat and all, but they really should have put in some kind of online trading or battle stuff. But you can trade with the Ranch owner in the game, and if you deposit 999 Pokemon you get a Mew. I say that's pretty cool.

You can buy it on wiiware soon. I have also heard it might be a channel.

I'm dissapointed it isnt on Ware launch, even in the UK, where Pokemon popularity is very low, many people wanted it.

I ordered a wii points card which will be a waste of money for a while now.

Won't be a waste of money if you save it to get Pokemon Ranch, but it would be if you were to spend it on countless other useless applications...

That's my point.

I have been hearing May 12th but that was last Monday. Nintendo says they will be adding games for WiiWare every Monday. So I guess, possibly, Pokemon Ranch could be coming out tomorrow. I'm just taking a guess here so nobody quote me.

Wii Points Cards are always a waste of time, considering you can just take your card and buy the points on the Wii Shop Channel, thus escaping the tax charge of your local department store.

But yeah, any new news about this?

Wow, Nintendo is definetly hiding this game up good. I don't understand why they just can't come out and say "HERE'S THE RELEASE DATE! PAY ATTENTION!" If it isn't May 12th or 19th, when is it!? Next week?! June?! Next year!? Come on Nintendo we need some answers here. A lot of people are looking forward to this. All I'm saying is just give us the release date!!!!!!

I would put my money on that. It would make sense, releasing a cool new game on Memorial Day. (U.S.) It's either then or sometime in June. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

If you can get mew when u have 999
then translate mew to diamond or

WiiWare is in the Wii Shop. It is another section. It's like this:
Virtual Console
WiiWare
Wii Channels
It's just a way of separating them. And the old "WiiWare" (e.g. Internet Channel) has been moved to Wii Channels. WiiWare is solely for games that aren't big enough to sell on a disc.

I want this game at least just as much as the rest of you, maybe more. I would like to see it come out this Monday since this weekend was the Darkrai event, but I somehow doubt that will happen.

It can be bought using the Wii Shop channel. To buy it, go to a store (i.e. Target, Best Buy, Circuit City, etc.) and tear off a piece of paper on the back to receive a code. Enter that code in the Redeem Points section in the Wii Shop Channel. This will allow you to get 2000 Wii Points. Next, purchase the game/channel you want (In this case it would be 'Pokemon Ranch'')

There are no official release dates yet. Nintendo updates WiiWare every Monday so I would frequently check your Wii Shop Channel on Mondays to see if it is there.

It is very possible that Pokemon Ranch could come out on Monday, June 2nd. It would make perfect sense, seeing that the Darkrai Event is happening this weekend. (Thanks Ichaste Pekoni, I might have forgot to go get mine!) My suggestion would be to just keep a keen eye on the WiiWare section of the Wii Shop Channel.

My personal estimate on the release date would be sometime in late June. I guess us PokeRanchers with just have to hold our breath for now.

The peculiar thing about today, though, is that Nintendo has yet to announce what games are coming on their press site... Generally, the announcement is up by 9:00 EST, but that was almost 90 minutes ago...

Might as well grab that Monday Theory, wrap it up, throw it in the dirt, and flush it down the toilet. I'm sorry if I gave anyone false hope. That's not what I was trying to do. Right now, Pokemon Ranch ol' pal, I don't think we'll be seeing you anytime soon. And I thought I hated Mondays before. I could maybe see not releasing Pokemon Ranch for awhile if Nintendo gave us a definite release date. I really don't care how long it is going to be released from now. If there was a release date it would at least give everyone some warning and give people something to look forward to. Oh well, that's just how I feel on this. Once more, I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Not to be another party-pooper but I'm guessing serebii is estimating that Pokemon Ranch is scheduled for spring '08. And I'm pretty sure that they don't mean Spring '08 literally, I think they just meant, sometime early in the year. I have not heard/seen an official release date from Nintendo. Until I see it on a Nintendo website, I'm not believing it. I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't see Pokemon Ranch for another month. I guess it is possible that it comes out before July but....I don't know.

I take it that you never played Pokemon Box, then?

For breeding, the game is quite useful, giving a good place to put all of those extra Pokemon. You can also stick those extra competitive teams into the Ranch so your training efforts keep from filling your entire game. However, when you add cloning to the mix...it gives a humongous storage space for all of those "rare" Pokemon to go to in order to keep your actual boxes free. On top of that...you have the "divine miracle" of gamesaves. Can you say "all Pokemon cloned at once"? Or better yet, infinite events?

My only disappointment is the lack of cross-cartridge transfers, but I can at least understand why.
