Hi there. ;]
I just wanted to know if anyone bought this game off the Store on your Wii, and if so, what's it like? I want to know if I should buy some points and download it or not, so let me know!

You should only get it if you're currently running out of space on your D/P game. I have it and it's pretty fun. You can make your stored Pokemon do fun things like ride on eachother or play games with items (given based on the amount of stored Pokemon). Pokemon Ranch is also one of the ways to get a legitimate Mew. And it costs 1000 Wii Points if you're interested. But again, only get it if you're running out of space in your boxes.

It's basically a storage system that doubles as the cutest screensaver ever. In the first couple of days I owned it, I probably spent hours watching my favourite Pokémon because they were so cute. :B If I'd expected a game when buying it, though, I'd be really disappointed. I agree with the above poster--get it if you need the storage space, or you want to fill your ranch for the Mew, but otherwise it's probably not worth it since that's a VERY steep price for what it does.

You can get a mew? what like for your D/P?

Wow! I may get it then!. Sorry can't help you about it though don't own it but it may be worth it just for the mew....

Mm-hmm. You can get Manaphy from it, too, if you didn't get Ranger and need one.

If you want to know how it looks, you can download the Nintendo Channel and take a look at the video they have of it. Ranch really isn't a game on its own, per se, but mainly extra storage for your DS games.

Um, it's Phione, not Manaphy.

Yeah you should get it if you're running out of space on your PC boxes in pokemon Diamond and Pearl. Other than that if you don't have those games it's kind of pointless getting that game.

How much do 1000 wii points cost?

About $10, but I think you can only buy 2000 Wii Points for $20 each. I don't know the conversion for other currency, sorry :(

Ok, thanks for explaining it.
I lost my Pokemon Pearl game, so I doubt I'll need it for a while. xP
They made the trailers look awesome though.
I have another question, too.
How do your Mii's interact, exactly, with the game?

The cards maybe, but if you buy points through the Wii Shop Channel you can buy 1000 Wii Points. That's how I got 1000 points for My Pokemon Ranch (I only needed 600, but Nintendo wants you to pay at least 1000.)

That's my only complaint for Ranch. Why a Phione? It's so worthless. If they gave us a Manaphy it'd actually make sense because then I have both Manaphy and Phione in my Pokedex (after I breed for a Phione.)

It's all about money. If you got a Manaphy then there will be almost no need for Ranger see?, Nintendo make you spend as much money as possible to complete the pokedex.

But, You get a mew, Surely thats good enough :D

You can't really control them. Every now and then, they'll interact with a Pokemon or a Pokemon will interact with them, whether it be a Pokemon following the Mii, attacking the Mii, the Mii petting a Pokemon. So nothing very special.

The cards maybe, but if you buy points through the Wii Shop Channel you can buy 1000 Wii Points. That's how I got 1000 points for My Pokemon Ranch (I only needed 600, but Nintendo wants you to pay at least 1000.)

You're right, I was referring to the card. I don't have a credit card so I forgot all about that option.

Thanks True Justice.
I'm going to guess this isn't the game for me.
Thanks for filling me in. =]
