Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia

How do you get Darkria?

Games Guru: It’s easy. Liberate the tower in Mission 3.

How and where do you get Manaphy?

Games Guru: OK. First, you need to beat the game. Now, make sure the DS is on and that you have a WiFi connection going. Find RangerNet. Pick the Choose New Missions option. Now, choose Search. You will be able to download three missions. The first has you recovering the Manaphy Egg. Once you complete the mission, you get the Manaphy!

How do you capture and release the hypnotized Rampardos in Peril Cliffs?

Games Guru: As you know, it’s really hard to capture the Rampardos. I believe it’s the only 5 Tackle Pokemon in Shadows of Almia. The best way is to beat the game first and then go back to the Peril Cliffs. At that point, you can capture the Rampardos. Also, one person in the forums I looked at suggested that when you see one rock fall, you have one second before the other falls. Quickly draw a one circle on it. You can try to use PokeAssist to slow the rock down.

  13. how do you beat Draipion?

    • That’s pretty easy. All you have to do is wait for his attack to finish and circle him as many times as you can. Also, use a pokeassist that’s powerful against it. But be careful because it starts attacking quickly.

  14. I need help I am battling a moltres and my pokemon is Treecko.

    you cant for diamond unless you transport them
    and the best poke-assist against Drapion is bug, very powerful for the basic Pokemon that evolves into Ariados

    if you need Registeel, find Gallade in Altru tower, and head to chroma ruins. the statue is on the main path, so you don’t really need to search.

    if you cant find Regice, first get Magmortar, and head for almia castle. when you get to the main hall, go right. keep going until you are in a room with three exits. take the one on the far left and there will be an end room. In it are Mismagius, and the Regice statue! use Magmortar’s burn to release him.

      Where do u get Magmortar?

      • when you are about to enter the area with team dim suns hidden harbor don’t go to the area before that and godown it’s the path that has stucky (pokemon) on it

    for those at a loss for Regirock: in the Vien forest, catch a floatzle and go to where you found blastoise. go off the dock and head upriver until you see A DOCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RIVER. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. get off at the dock and go south. there will be a sort of ring. (you will catch celibi here and F.Y.I. use doduo.) there are some rare pokemon here. get them now or never. go southdown that little path on the west side. save, and enter the cave to the south-west. there is a statue that contains regirock.

  24. sorry, the numbers are 118, 139, 175, 262,

  25. where are these Pokemon!!!
