Ranger Signs

A new feature in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs is the Ranger Signs. These signs are symbols that you can draw in the ground with your Capture Styler on the Touch Screen. There are numerous signs in the game and when you draw them, they call a Pokémon to come and assist you. You can draw them by simply clicking an icon on the H.U.D. at any point in the game when not in caves/buildings

The effects of the Ranger signs are varied, some bring Pokémon to you, some allow you to rechallenge Pokémon. If you have forgotten a sign, you can check it at any point in the game's menu and through an icon when you're drawing the sign

You also have the ability to charge up your Ranger Signs. Hold the stylus down to charge it as if you were capturing the Pokémon and then draw the sign. This super-powers the Pokémon and results in them having higher powered assists, or in the case of Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Latios & Latias, they become faster when you ride on them. This is essential for the flying Pokémon if you wish to capture fast Pokémon such as Honchkrow.

Below is a list of the Pokémon and their corresponding Ranger Sign and navigate with the quicklinks
