My Pokémon Ranch (みんなのポケモン牧場, Minna no Pokemon Bokujō, Everyone's Pokémon Ranch) is a Pokémon WiiWare game developed for the Wii by Ambrella. My Pokémon Ranch was released via the WiiWare download service on March 25, 2008 in Japan, in the Americas on June 9, 2008, and in Europe on July 4, 2008 for 1000 Wii Points. In it, Miis interact with Pokémon on a ranch. Pokémon are brought to the ranch every day the player visits it for 15 days. More Pokémon can also be added by connecting to Pokémon Diamond or Pearl and depositing the Pokémon.


My Pokémon Ranch allows players to transfer up to 1,000 of their Pokémon from up to eight separate Diamond and Pearl Nintendo DS game cards, to a ranch run by Hayley, a friend of Bebe running the PC box system in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. Here, they can view their Pokémon rendered in 3D, while using their Miis to interact with them.

Players do not need to own Pokémon Diamond or Pearl to play My Pokémon Ranch. Players with or without the Nintendo DS game will be given six starter Pokémon and a new Pokémon at the start of each day. Additionally, each day Hayley will give the player requests for certain Pokémon not in the player's Pokédex to be added to the ranch, along with instructions on where to find them in Diamond and Pearl. It has also been confirmed that players can obtain a special Mew and Phione. Hayley can also trade certain Pokémon she already has in her possession. Eventually, adding more Pokémon to the ranch unlocks new features to the game and expands the ranch.

Similar to the actions in the Mii Channel's plaza, the Pokémon on the ranch can perform different idle actions, such as talking, playing with each other, and sleeping. Players are also able to take snapshots of their Pokémon and send them to friends registered on their Wii, as well as downloading the photos in .JPG file to an SD card, and transfer them onto your computer or camera. A simple HUD shows the ability to monitor the time and the number of Pokémon in the ranch. Apart from storing collected Pokémon on the ranch, players are otherwise unable to further train or level up their Pokémon on the ranch.

On June 18, 2008 an update was made available for the game. Another update will be made available in future to ensure compatibility with Pokémon Platinum, which is currently not compatible with the game.
