Chroma Highlands (Japanese: ヌリエこうげん Nurie Plateau) is an area in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia.

The Chroma Highlands is a mountainous area located in the northeast of the Almia region. The land is harsh and ravaged. When the player and Keith first arrive, they find Team Dim Sun creating a dark mist by using Murkrow hypnotized by a Miniremo. The dark mist damages a ranger's Capture Styler, and can be cleared through the use of the Demist Field move. The entrance to Chroma Ruins can be found at the top of the Highlands.

Ponte spends most of his time here after quitting Team Dim Sun. He sets off to Vientown after a quest, leaving this place empty.

I'm having real trouble with a Misdreavus.
It's been disturbing me while I'm exploring the
many chambers in the Chroma Ruins.
It likes to sneak up and startle me for fun.
Can anyone help with this?

I'd like you to bring back the Pokémon I want
to use as a model for my wood carving.
I can see it now: a big, proud, red nose!
An impressive moustache!
One lives in the Chroma ruins I've heard.
