Pokemon rangers are like failed Pokemon trainers right?

lol they couldn't pass trainer school but people pitied them so they end up "capturing" Pokemon temporarily

Rangers come primarily from the Fiore and Almia regions where catching Pokemon in Pokeballs is forbidden. The areas are meant to be nature preserves, where extremely rare species, like the starters, can flourish. They have a completely separate school where they learn how to be Rangers properly. Quite a few of them have at least one "Partner Pokemon" that follows them around permanently due to a strong bond of friendship. Kind of like how everyone has a maximum bond Pokemon in Conquest. Presumably Rangers who used to be trainers have someone who looks after their Pokemon while on duty.

They should still at least have Pokemon with them! What's stopping a ranger to use both his legally-obtained mons AND "bonded" Pokemon?

Rangers can and have used the Pokemon they capture for specific tasks. When the Pokemon has fulfilled his/her/its purpose they say their thanks and release said Pokemon. Usually this means help with crossing a river, or some other non-battle related task. There are cases where they have to fight others and they do call upon the Pokemon they capture for assistance then as well. Naturally the Pokemon are returned to the wild after the battle is over, and presumably any major wounds are taken care of.
