Learn with Pokémon: Typing Adventure Review | GodisaGeek

GodisaGeek: "There is something here for everyone. When the game arrived, I was excited, like that N64 kid on Youtube, or a dog waiting for you to throw the ball back. And my excitement was validated as soon as I started playing. It is an excellent game, that is right up my street.

Youngsters (and me) will like the excellent, colourful graphics and the fun of working through the levels, perhaps to attain a bronze or silver standard. Gold medals may be a bit tricky for younger players, but anyone over the age of 12 should have the nous to get their Poké-typing skills up to the necessary standard to gain them. Even if you are not a fan of the series, adults will love the quirky gameplay which makes a refreshing change from a lot of games on the market, with a gimmick that works well and is genuinely entertaining. Proper Game Freak die-hards, on the other hand, will lap up the multitude of virtual beasts to capture, and the top notch presentation we have come to expect from the franchise. It is questionable whether there is any real educational value to the title (given the fact that no child is going to be using the fictitious names of videogame monsters in everyday life) but it definitely works as an aid to typing dexterity, and is a game that can be enjoyed as a family, as kids try to out-type their old dears for big points. A superb package, which shows that the Nintendo DS still has the ability to delight." (Battle & Get! Pokemon Typing DS, Learn With Pokémon: Typing Adventure, Nintendo DS) 8/10
