So you can't type very well, a state of affairs entirely intolerable in the modern day and age, and it's something that has to be resolved promptly. You're also a big fan of Pokémon, and just wish there was a way to improve your typing and indulge your favourite hobby all at once. Well, the dream is a reality, as Learn With Pokémon: Typing Adventure — announced in the most recent European Nintendo Direct — now has a confirmed European release date of 21st September.
As well as teaching you to type, this title will apparently teach you more about your favourite 'mon and entice you with lots of collectible medals, all with the help of the bundled in keyboard and handheld stand. You can check out the details in the press release below and, remember, type your comments correctly.
Those looking for a fun yet challenging way to practise their typing skills will love Learn With Pokémon: Typing Adventure for Nintendo DS, coming to European stores on 21st September 2012 bundled with the Nintendo Wireless Keyboard. Research over 400 Pokémon - including Legendary Pokémon - in this unique, typing-based game.
As you take on the role of the latest member of the Elite Typists' Club, your typing skills will gradually be tested to the limit as you attempt to accurately type the names of any Pokémon you come across on your journey to help Professor Quentin Werty and his assistant Paige Down with their research.
Fun for beginners and typing pros alike, Learn With Pokémon: Typing Adventure starts you off gently, with early levels only tasking you to type the first letter of a Pokémon’s name before moving you on to much trickier exercises as your typing skills develop.
By typing their names correctly you will capture each Pokémon in your Typing Ball, allowing your team to research them. As you progress you will encounter increasingly rare Pokémon, including the likes of Legendary Pokémon like Reshiram and Zekrom from Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version.
The game offers lessons on finger placement as well as other tips to improve the accuracy and speed of your typing. Successfully tackle both aspects to build up combos and earn high scores that will improve your overall typist rank. As you progress you will be able to unlock up to 60 different, challenging levels and go in search of rarer Pokémon to study and up to 180 medals to collect.
Learn With Pokémon: Typing Adventure comes with a special Nintendo Wireless Keyboard featuring the standard key layout, which has been made to work with this game but may also work with other Bluetooth-compatible products. The package also includes the Nintendo DS Compact Stand that can be used to position your Nintendo DS, Nintendo DSi, Nintendo DSi XL, Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 3DS XL system as your hands use the keyboard.
Perfect for those looking to improve their typing and for fans of Pokémon adventures, Learn With Pokémon: Typing Adventure will launch for the Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS family of consoles from 21st September. For more information, please visit www.pokemon.co.uk.
