Pokemon Ranger: Guardian Signs
Pokemon Ranger Guardian Signs is a game for the Nintendo DS systems
It was released in Japan in March 2010, the U.S. in October and soon in Europe in November
This is the third game in the Pokemon Ranger series and the first to include the ranger signs
Your partner is a Pichu with a Ukulele
It is also one of the only games where you are able to take control and ride the Johto beasts as well as the Hoenn dragon duo Latios and Latias.
There sadly isn't much in the way of merchandise for this game as it was just a spin-off but I have managed to get a few things.
Nintendo World Promotional notebook
This cute little notebook was given away as a promo when the game was released in American from Nintendo World (I believe it also was given away if you played the game at E3 2010)
It was given away along with three bookmarks of the Johto Beasts and their call signs
The main player characters Ben (Natsuya) and Summer (Minami) are on the front while Ukelele Pichu is featured on the back as well as the pages inside.

Italian Ukuele Pichu keychain promo
I was lucky enough to have a friend that kindly offered me her promotional gift when the game was picked up in game stores in Italy. This is a cute little keychain using Ukuele Pichu's stock art.
Nintendo DS/Wii magazine tin case and ruler
This item I am guessing of it's origin as there is a stamp of a Japanese magazine on it on the clear green ruler. The ruler as well as a pencil for the Heart Gold and Soul Silver games were inside the metal case.
Pokemon Ranger: Guidebook Red ruler/puzzle
Another item I am unsure of the origin with this ruler/puzzle. The only idea I have to go on is that it came with a small guide book.
Ben (Natsuya) and Summer (Minami) figures
These figures are custom "Pinky St." figures.
Made primarily with Fimo soft polymer clay and acrylics paints. (Which need repainted one more. ^^;) The both took about 5 hours spanning two days (Paint drying) to complete.
With their (Jakks) Staraptor and (Footprint Figure) Ukuele Pichu .
Ukulele Pichu plush
I was disappointed that with the abundance of Pichu in 2010, that Ukulele Pichu would be granted a plush, even a small one. But sadly no... So I figured I'd design one myself. The plush is a Spring 2010 UFO catcher and the ukulele is custom made with still felt, string and acrylics paints.
I've so far used her with my Ranger cosplay. She's just about the right size as she was in the anime special.
Ukulele Pichu Bell Plush
Bell Plush are small plush that come with tiny bell and a string. They are very popluar and alot of custom artists are very good at them.
The Ukulele Pichu Bell plush is actually my second BP custom from this artist. I love her work.
Uku is very tiny and have a small gold bell with a white string.
