Learn With Pokemon: Typing Adventure Headed To Europe With Keyboard

By Ishaan . June 22, 2012 . 8:30am

Some of our readers may remember a game titled Battle & Get! Pokémon Typing DS that was released in Japan last year. The game was released bundled with a wireless Bluetooth keyboard that the user played it with. The game was on rails, and as you’d come across Pokémon, you would need to type their names in to capture them. Here’s an older Japanese trailer that demonstrates this:



This same game is now headed to Europe as Learn With Pokémon: Typing Adventure. Like the Japanese version, it will come with the Bluetooth keyboard, and you’ll be able to use this with other Bluetooth-compatible devices as well. The keyboard will come in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish versions.

    I knew I wasn’t having some sort of bizarre fever dream last night! This and that brilliant Heroes of Ruin trailer honestly made me wonder if I was actually watching a real thing.

    That said, we’re getting this but no word on Pokémon Conquest at all, no release date or even a word on it at the Direct. It’s not like they were bursting for news, either, they could easily have squeezed it in there with the other Pokémon games. I guess it’s the payoff for NOE’s sudden brilliance?

    Bluetooth? The DS doesn’t have bluetooth right? So I guess the Bluetooth is on the cartridge itself?

    • DSes use bluetooth to communicate with each other, I believe.

        I guess that it is not or there would be more games that would feature it. Checked the specs on wiki to be sure. Nothing was mentioned about Bluetooth.

        I think it is more along the lines of incorporating Bluetooth on the cartridge itself just like what @MaruluGames:disqus said about Pokemon HGSS and infrared. :D

      Yes, it is like the infrared on the Pokemon heard gold and soul silver cartridges.

    Nintendoo DS? Yes, I can import. Guess I know what I’m gonna be doing.

    What? The typing of the dead with Pokémon? I think the keyboard destroys the whole meaning of “Portable”, but.. I love it!
    Wait. Not 3DS, but DS? This is great! I own a DS!

  • Honestly, I wish this would come to the US! ^^ It seems like great lighthearted fun. I’m a huge fan of all the Pokemon spinoff titles, and this seems right up my alley~!
