Everyone's Pokemon Ranch - WiiWare - New Details

Posted by Darren Calvert

The official website for the upcoming Pokémon-themed WiiWare title, Everyone's Pokemon Ranch, has been given an update.

A few new details on the WiiWare project:

  • Renamed Everyone’s Pokémon Ranch (was Pokémon Farm)
  • Transfer Pokémon from Diamond and Pearl, storing up to 1000 creatures on the Wii.
  • Interact with your Poké-friends through activities, e.g. sitting around a campfire.
  • Take photos with your collection, saving them to an SD card or onto the Message-board to share with friends.
  • The ranch is owned by Yukari, a friend from Diamond/Pearl.

Very good, but how much does it cost and when will it be released in EU? By the way the friend from diamond and perl is Bebe!

Way too cool!
I'm paying everything they want for a program like this.
It could awaken again my currently low interest in the Monsters, caused by lack of wireless internet access and friends who abandoned the game too early.

I'll be getting it. Pokemon Battle Coliseum turned out to be ne of the biggest let downs since...well I can't even remember when. And so I need something to do having all these Pokemon. I guess this will be a small chip thrown back by Nintendo.

Meh, cool for Pokemon fans I suppose. I hope we see some more info on Dr. Mario soon as well. Better yet, some NEW Wiiware games Nintendo's working on.

@Zweck36 - Yes! It was actually a 'cover' (that sounds strange when refering to contemporary classical :P) of Copland's 'Hoe-down', which is one part of a ballett entitled Rodeo. Copland is an American composer.

It looks fun! I'm a pokemon fan, so I'm getting it when it comes out!

Apparently the SD card screenshots will be viewable on PC. I never thought i'd see the day Ambrella outdo something (in this case Super Smash Bros Brawl which the only way to view snapsohts on the PC is to decrypt them using an encryption key nobody will give out for legal reasons).

But right cost and they've got lots of sales. Wrong cost and they still have lots of sales :S Pokemanicas need that extra storage power :)

The only way I'll get this is if it'll only be a few hundred points. If it's any more than that I can't see how it'll be worth it. I'd like to think that there would be more activities with the Pokémon than those mentioned too.

1500 points is expensive & as a first to be said by me it's overpriced as compared to virtual console perfectly planed pricing scheme .
But still i most probably download it .

That's cool, I just can't wait for the WiiWare original games to be launched... 1500p is a ;ittle steep tho... Maybe 1000p

I might wait for the Virtual Console review of Pokemon Ranch before I spend that ammount of Wii points on it.

Must have taken up loads of memory to do so too.

If it is 500 points I'll pick it up... but only if there is a special pokemon or something... Like Shaymin is in the ranch the first time you get there and then you can trnsfer it over to D/P!

All the video I've seen looks really basic. If all you can do is "interact", store and take pictures of your Pokemon, then it's not worth it, (unless you've got an unhealthy obsession with the sprites). If, on the other hand, it allows you to access events or other stuff that you otherwise couldn't, then it might be worth it. Since Nintendo Events are super-rare on this side of the Pacific, this might be a good thing.

I do like the idea of creating armies of one species of Pokemon. The picture of the rows of Pikachu performing military drills on the website is classic.

Maybe I'll create a Luxio Army.

500 points? for a brand new game when just plain simple NES ROMs cost the same? something doesn't seem right there...

Sounds like Pokemon Box that came out on GameCube, and just as pointless

This is a pointless cash-in. You can't even battle? What the hell is the point? (besides getting money to the company)

Looks like a storage for your pokemon from diamond and pearl.
So far theres no point in getting this.

I think its worth it if I can transfer pokemon from diamond. I always wanted to start it over but I didn't want to get rid of my pokemon and I had no where else to put them. I just hope it isn't 1500 points...

I know I'm getting it for sure, but I think my little sister will play with it more than I do. I play the games, she watches the shows and plays with the stuffed animals and plays imaginary games with them. She's seen this and really wants to get it so we can upload her Pikachu and Piplup and other small cute Pokemon team for her Mii to play with. It's exactly what she play pretends doing, so she can't wait to see it happening.

Sitting around a fire, taking pictures, and interacting? I like Pokemon games, but that doesn't sound all that fun.
