In the Pokémon Ranger series, the Ranger Rank is a numerical rank that all Rangers have that shows their progression in their career. They begin at Rank 1 and are promoted through good work.

In practice, this is awarded after completing each numbered mission. By gaining higher ranks, features of the Capture Styler are unlocked.

At the start of Pokémon Ranger, only Grass, Fire, Water and Electric Poké Assists can be used, only four friend Pokémon can be obtained at a time and the Partner Gauge for Plusle and Minun's Discharge is at 1. Increasing rank allows for different Poké Assists, more friend Pokémon to be on standby at a time and the Partner Gauge to be extended.
