''My Pokémon Ranch'' is a ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' VideoGame for the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}, developed by Ambrella, [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames not Nintendo/Game Freak]]. It was released for UsefulNotes/WiiWare in 2008, for 1000 Wii Points, or about US$10. It's mostly unplayable without ''[[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Diamond & Pearl]],'' similar to ''VideoGame/PokemonBattleRevolution'' for the Wii.

It lets you transfer up to 1000 Pokémon into a Pokémon Ranch, which, despite the game's NonindicativeName, is not run by you, but by Hayley, a friend of Bebe, the {{Expy}} of Bill in ''Diamond & Pearl''. There, you can see your Pokémon as SuperDeformed, or chibis.

Apart from giving you a place to store extra Pokémon, it has one extra useful function: to get Mew. After you send 999 Pokémon here, Hayley will give you a level 50 Mew if you give her an Egg. Now if only the game were actually compatible with ''Platinum''[[note]]It is, though only for Japan, as said below[[/note]], ''[=HeartGold=]'', and ''[=SoulSilver=]''...
!! This game has examples of the following tropes:

* DaydreamSurprise: The opening cutscene has Hayley explaining the whole goal while she is daydreaming; it shows the Pokemon playing in the ranch and vise versa. '''That''' is when Hayley snaps out of her daydream, and comments that she "was daydreaming again."
* DigitalDistribution: Found in the Wii Shop.
* DiscOneNuke: That Shroomish you can trade for? Seed Bomb, Spore, Stun Spore, and... False Swipe?! It's a catching ''god''.
* MythologyGag: An EasterEgg involves Munchlax, Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Meowth, and Teddiursa racing one another. These species all appeared in one of Ambrella's previous games, ''VideoGame/PokemonDash''.
* NewGamePlus: Strangely averted- due to player-owned Pokemon being tied to the file that originally deposited them, My Pokemon Ranch cannot be used to dump Pokemon in, then start a new game and withdraw.
* OneGameForThePriceOfTwo: If you want to fully enjoy this game, you need to own Diamond or Pearl.
* SpiritualSuccessor: To Pokémon Box, a storage system for ''Ruby and Sapphire'' on the Gamecube,
* SuperDeformed: Every Pokémon here.
