The Pokémon.com mailbag has revealed that there are no plans to release the {{game|Platinum}} update for {{bp|My Pokémon Ranch}} to North American Wii systems.
Information regarding the future of {{bp|My Pokémon Ranch}} has come to light following an announcement on the Pokémon.com mailbag.
My Pokémon Ranch was released in early 2008, and is compatible with {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}. Following the release of {{game|Platinum}} later that year, an update was released for Japanese players.

The update, available for download in Japan since November 5, 2008, allowed the Platinum-exclusive forms for {{p|Giratina}}, {{p|Shaymin}}, and {{p|Rotom}} to be stored on My Pokémon Ranch, along with several other new features.
No word has come from Nintendo USA on the matter, and some fans are discounting this announcement as unofficial. However, according to the article, any further announcement was to be made only if there was a change.
