The Ranger School (Japanese: レンジャースクール Renjā Sukūru) is a location whereby individuals aspire to become either Rangers, Mechanics and Operators in training, featured in Shadows of Almia. Hidden in Ascension Square is a diary which was used by the three founding fathers of the Ranger Union: Erma, Professor Hastings and Lamont.
At the Ranger School, individuals are taught skills pertaining to the lives of Pokémon Rangers, in order to succeed as either a Ranger, a Mechanic or an Operator. It is here where Erma, Professor Hastings and Lamont vowed to bring peace to the Pokémon world, thus forging what would later become the institution of the Ranger Union. Lamont created the Ranger School to allow children to learn about the responsibilities of being a Pokémon Ranger. For demonstration purposes, the Ranger School implements a safer, less powerful variant of the Capture Styler called the School Styler.
- Pokémon Ranger - A Pokémon Ranger's role is to uphold the peace within the Almia region and protect nature. Their role is pivotal in the day-to-day running of the Ranger Union.
- Operator - These people are assigned to communicate directly with Pokémon Rangers in the field via voicemail, and can grant additional PokéAssists to Rangers who successfully complete a mission. Though the role of Operator is slightly subservient to the Ranger, it is a crucial aspect of the Ranger Union.
- Mechanic - The Mechanic's role in the series is to repair machinery. Not much else about this class is known.
