Revert To Type
Gradually, craftily, through all these methods it makes you a more effective typist. Having to repeat courses to discover uncommon Pokemon that only show up at random, or when you fulfil certain conditions, is pretty annoying at first. But you soon begin to appreciate that the repetition is actually improving your accuracy as you play.
Before long you'll no longer be looking at your fingers, but keeping your gaze focused on the screen, as it should be if you don't want to miss anything. And that's when it throws in a new rule: make a mistake and your target might just run away. When the pressure's on, could you honestly type out, say, Mienshao perfectly without looking at your fingers?
Of course, there's no way for the game to tell whether you're using the right digits to hit the right keys, but it pays to try to stick to the game's instructions to increase your efficiency. Get into the right habits and you'll soon find yourself breezing through the levels, earning gold medals and even unlocking extended routes where you have a chance to nab a few super-rare Pokemon. With over 400 entries in Werty's research manual to fill, it's going to take a fair while to catch 'em all.
It's worth noting that the whole process is made that much easier for those that are familiar with their Pokemon. If you can spot a Banette from ten paces you have an instant advantage, as you can start typing before the prompt shows up. Again, repeating each course is the best way to learn: by the time you're done, you'll stand a decent chance of qualifying for a job as a secretary for The Pokemon Company.
About the only thing we can reasonably criticise here is the graphics, which are functional at best, with most Pokemon looking about as animated as a cardboard cutout. And we might be getting greedy here, but with 400 to catch, Genius Sonority might have thrown in the rest, especially given the length of time it's taken to get here.
Then again, perhaps we should consider ourselves fortunate to have the opportunity to play it at all. Learn With Pokemon: Typing Adventures may not be a big hitter like the RPGs, but it comfortably sits alongside Pokemon Conquest in our Top 5 Pokémon Spin-Offs, a list we can now confidently type out in 12 seconds flat.
