Just to throw this onto the fire concerning the ethical debate over Rangers (in the anime at least), the engrish translation of the page the shots come from features this:

The Pokemon ranger will be able to borrow Pokemon's power by conveying feelings to think of nature because a wild Pokemon is done in capture.
That could mean that a Ranger has to empathise with a Pokemon before asking it to do stuff like burn down Haystacks.

Or could just be a pidgeon translation for 'asking' - but *shrugs*.
