Template:Infobox location/almia

The Ranger School (Japanese: レンジャースクール Ranger School) is located just east of Vientown in the game Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. This is where the player learns to become a Pokémon Ranger. It is here that the player meets Keith and Rhythmi.

The Ranger School is a boarding school where many people from around the world come to learn to become a Pokémon Ranger, an Operator, or a Mechanic. The Ranger School is well known for its ability to produce successful rangers. Students of the school are given special Capture Stylers that have limited abilities.

History

Lamont Splendidocious had a dream to start a school for people. This dream came true when Hastings developed the Capture Styler and Erma started the Ranger Union. Lamont's school was then used to teach students about Pokémon and how to preserve nature, the goal of the Pokémon Rangers. He, Hastings and Erma wrote their dreams in a diary kept under where the Pledge Stone in Ascension Square is.

During the graduation ceremony, the player and Keith face Pokémon that were interrupting the ceremony, two Tangrowth. Later, Barlow crashes Team Dim Sun's Cargo Ship into the school's port by the Ascension Square.

Campus

Grounds

The Ranger School has a fairly large ground, where many Pokémon roam around and dwell. There is also classroom there where Mr. Kaplan and Mrs. Claire teach just to the left of the building. On the far right side of the grounds is Ascension Square where the Pledge Rock can be found. It is said that if one makes a pledge by the it, the pledge will come true. Also on the far right side of the school is the school's port.

Ground Floor

The Ranger School building is a two story building with an underground basement. Down the main hallway of the ground floor are two classrooms on the left and right. The left classroom is Ms. April's classroom, while the right classroom was Mr. Kincaid's classroom. Both classrooms contain six desks lined up in a linear row with the teachers desk in front. Further along is the library, the staffroom and a flight of stairs up to the second floor and downstairs to the basement.

Second Floor

The second floor of the Ranger School building is where the dormitories and eating area are found. Above the main eating area are two bedrooms which are located on the left and right hand side of the room. The left bedroom are for the boys while right bedroom for the girls. The bedrooms contain four bunk beds, fitting eight people per room.

Basement

Under the main building is the basement which is where Mr. Kincaid's laboratory and office are. Under Mr. Kincaid's orders, students are not allowed to enter the basement for any reason.

Teachers

There are six staff members at the school: the principal, Mr. Lamont, four teachers and the caretaker, Janice.

  • Mr. Lamont - The principal of Ranger School. He is a devoted person who founded the school and has been the principal there since. He is usually found in the staffroom doing work at the head desk or standing around thinking. He has an interest in computers and is reading a book called PC for novices. Mr. Lamont is a happy man and has a favorite saying, Always remember to keep on smiling.
  • Ms. April - The player's teacher. She has a class of eight students with her classroom found on the bottom left corner of the ground floor. She is normally calm, but is known to gain tempers every now and then, especially when Crawford was in her class.
  • Mr. Kincaid - The teacher of the class next door to Ms. April's. His laboratory is located in the school's basement. No running in the hallways is Kincaid's famous rule and catchphrase. He also tells students not to cast suspicion on others without proof, a rule which he ignores when a handful of Stylers are stolen from the school.
  • Mr. Kaplan - The capturing teacher of the school. He has a mad sense of humor and tries to make everybody join him on his quest to conquer the world. His classroom is located within the grounds of the school and teaches next to Ms. Claire.
  • Ms. Claire - The target clear teacher. Her classroom is located within the grounds of the school and teaches next to Mr. Kaplan.
  • "Teacher" - An unnamed teacher who replaced Mr. Kincaid. His name is unknown, but he has been dubbed as Teacher. He is quite a nervous person, being new to the job.
  • Janice - The caretaker of the school. She cooks food for the students and Pokémon in the school, cleans the dormitories, and cares for the Pokémon on the grounds. Many students look up to her as a mother. She also owns a Bidoof which lives with her in the school.

Notable Alumni

Most students graduate from the school and become successful Rangers, Operators, or Mechanics. There have been many notable alumni from the school.

  • Keith - Keith considers himself as the players rival some time after they meet. He was assigned to Fiore after graduation, where he met his partner Pokémon, Buizel.
  • Rhythmi - After her graduation, Rhythmi was initially stationed at Fiore to train as an Operator, but she is later seen again at the Ranger Union. Hastings has always mistakenly known her as Misery, even at the end of the game.

Quests

These are the quests which can be found at the Ranger School:

Light the Leaves

I hurt my back while raking leaves in the school yard. The leaves are gathered in three piles. Can I get you to set fire to them?

Pachirisu's Hide & Seek

We've had a Pachirisu make its home in the School recently. It's been a handful, though. It chews up things, and it likes to hide things. I would like to see this Pachirisu captured. It should still be in the school itself.

Secret Kept by Three

In all the world, there is one secret that is known to only the three of us. Find where that secret is hidden. Here's one hint: the Pledge Stone in Ascension Square.
