FanCensus says: "When it comes to Pokemon spin-offs, the results can often be somewhat of a mixed bag. For every excellent venture like Pokemon Snap or Pokemon Conquest, you’re also find a forgettable one such as Rush or the PokePark duo. On paper, the idea of a Pokemon game that sees you typing out names over and over seems like an incredibly dull one. It just shouldn’t work. Surprisingly though Typing Adventure ends up being one of the stronger spin-offs we’ve seen from the series and a great addition to the DS library."
