How to Reset "Pokemon Ranger" for the Nintendo DS


"Pokemon Ranger" has multiple reset methods, each with a different meaning. One method erases your data and begins a new game file, while the other method, called a "Soft Reset," simply reboots the game cartridge while in-game and returns to the start menu without automatically saving your progress. Resetting old game data is a useful method for capturing alternative Pokemon or to simply replay the game from the beginning.

New Game Resetting

  • Turn on the game and head to the game load menu.

  • Select "New Game."

  • Save at any point in your new file to overwrite old game data.

"Soft" Resetting

  • Save the game first if you would like to keep your current progress.

  • Hold the "Start," "Select," "L" and "R" buttons while in the game.

  • Release the buttons after the screen goes blank and reboots.

Tips & Warnings

  • Both reset options will not reset "Ranger Net" if you have unlocked it. However, it will erase your progress in those missions.
  • For each cartridge of "Pokemon Ranger", only one Manaphy egg can be obtained no matter how many times you reset the game.
