On Our Own is a Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs fan fiction by Pokemon Ranger Alex. The story stars Rank 8 Area Ranger Alex Reed and Rand 8 Area Ranger Ben Evans, on an urgent Mission given by Professor Hastings. 


The Oblivia region, a normally peaceful archipelago, is threatened by the Pokémon Pinchers, a group of people who capture Pokémon and take them away from their original homes to use them to their advantage. Professor Hastings, the Ranger Union's Chief of Technology, calls two fairly new Rangers, Alex and Ben, to the Ranger Union and gives them the following Mission: to investigate the Pinchers' plans and, if necessary, stop them.

As soon as Alex and Ben get separated from each other by the Pinchers, they both have different views on the Pinchers' actions: Ben from the inside and Alex from the outside. While there is no contact between the two partners and friends, both Rangers keep calm and hope for the best. 

Alex receives all sorts of help from inhabitants of the islands, stops the Pinchers' Missions several times and encounters Legendary Pokémon she couldn't have dreamed of...

However, there is a darker side to it. Alex, even with all the help, is on her own in a to her unknown region and as she keeps encountering the Pokémon Pinchers, she receives all sorts of mysterious dreams about a boy she doesn't know anything about, gets injured and investigates mysterious signs called Involiths, as well as more parts of the Oblivian Mythology.

However, there are darker sides to it...
