Capture On! Play as a Pokémon Ranger and work to preserve nature and protect Pokémon!
In the Fiore Region there are those sworn to serve people, Pokémon, and nature–the Pokémon Rangers. In their frequently challenging line of work, the Rangers rely on their Capture Stylers–special devices that only they are allowed to use. Using their Catupture Stylers, the Rangers borrow the abilities of Pokémon to uphold Fiore’s peace. But look out for the Go-Rock Squad–they want to use Pokémon for a more sinister purpose, and it’s up to the Pokémon Rangers to help stop them. It’s an adventure that gets you into the Pokémon action like never before!
