The Societea (Japanese: ティーパーティー Tea Party) is a criminal group in Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs. The player first meets all four of them separately at various points during the game, and once, on Sophian Island, where they are having a tea party together, where they are thought to be "good guys". Later, it is discovered that the group is responsible for controlling the actions of the Pokémon Pinchers. They were a group of thieves many years earlier, but faded into obscurity as they aged. They revived their group and took control of the Pokémon Pinchers in hopes of obtaining eternal youth. They are known for controlling Steelhead and for vaporizing Dolce Island in Oblivia. They are found in the Sky Fortress and are the last bosses of the game.
Edward (Japanese: エドワード Edward), also known as "Ed the Thinker," is the group's leader and a master thief. He faces the player in the Sky Fortress as a boss with Mewtwo, who he controls by using armor that originally belonged to Sabios of the Dark Temple.
Dr. Edward, or Ed, will awaken Mewtwo and set it on the player. Mewtwo has a variety of attacks like shooting out energy balls and psychic waves. The player must battle it twice, the second time more powerful. Edward is first met in Cocona Village, as a doctor who travels throughout the Oblivia region to care for the elderly and sick.
Arley (Japanese: アックス Axe) is a large man who boasts incredible strength. In the Sky Fortress, he battles the player with a Regigigas after putting the player through a swarm of angry Pokémon. He is first met in Rasp Cavern.
Kasa (Japanese: ドレス Dress) is a master of disguise. In the Sky Fortress, she battles the player with a Ditto that can transform into Raikou, Entei, and Suicune after she disguises herself as the player's partner and sets off various traps. She is first encountered in Aqua Resort.
Hocus (Japanese: マジック Magic) is a talented magician. He uses a giant Crobat when faced in the Sky Fortress, after using his skills to trap the Ukulele Pichu in a box and create a confusing battleground. He is first encountered in Tilt Village, performing magic tricks for a group of children.
- The Societea is an example of the Chekhov's gun plot device, where somebody or something is introduced early in a story and becomes more important later on.
