Learn With Pokémon Typing Adventure came out in Europe, last Friday (September 21st, 2012), so I decided to pick up a copy to see how it is. The box itself is bigger than the average Nintendo DS box, all because Nintendo has included a wireless keyboard. Well, it doesn’t end there, also included is a stand. From the look of things, my DS phat won’t fit on it (I didn’t try it yet), but my Nintendo 3DS works on it and looks cute. Also, the stand includes a cartridge holder, which is pretty handy for stowing an additional game. The keyboard is a bit smaller than an Apple keyboard, like the ones included with an iMac.
As an adult gal, I found that even though the gameplay may seem to be childish, it was actually quite amusing. The concept it simple: You type the Pokémon names, as well as other various actions you’d normally perform with a Pokémon game. While typing, you catch Pokémon. It’s easy to be tricked into thinking this is a cakewalk, however, the more you play/retry and the more you advance, the harder it becomes.
For an educational game, it does have a storyline, which I found funny to follow.
Below are a few videos to give you a better idea of what’s involved.
