Description

My Pokémon Ranch allows Pokémon masters of all ages and degrees of obsession to catalog and store their beloved Pokémon on their Nintendo Wiis. The ranch is run by Hayley, a friend of Bebe (the person responsible for Pokémon storage in the portable games). She gives the player six starter Pokémon and one new Pokémon every day that the player logs in to the Ranch.

My Pokémon Ranch features DS connectivity: up to eight players with Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, or Platinum can transfer their Pokémon to and from the Ranch. Once the Pokémon have been transferred to the Ranch, they cannot be levelled further. As the number of Pokémon on the Ranch increases, the Ranch size increases and features are unlocked. Hayley will trade Pokémon in her possession to a DS trainer; the rarity of the Pokémon depends on the number of Pokemon in the Ranch.

The player moves the camera to watch his or her Pokémon interacting with each other, with toys, and with Miis. Screenshots may be taken and sent to registered friends, or downloaded to SD cards. Pokémon can be picked up and dropped on to things, but can't be made to interact with anything, however, they just might get the right idea. Essentially, My Pokémon Ranch is a Mii Plaza for Pokémon enthusiasts.
