Learn with Pokémon: Typing Adventure (Japanese: バトル&ゲット!ポケモンタイピングDS Battle & Get! Pokémon Typing DS) is the first Generation V spin-off Pokémon game.

The game comes with the Nintendo Wireless Keyboard, a Bluetooth-enabled keyboard that communicates with the game card, though players may also use a keyboard on the touch screen. The Japanese version is sold with two keyboard color choices—black or white. The Japanese and English versions come with a QWERTY layout, the German version comes with a QWERTZ layout, and the French version comes with an AZERTY layout.

Gameplay

The player, a new rookie typist, travels through various routes and areas discovering Pokémon. The game is played with an attaching keyboard. Its purpose is to teach children to type, but the developers have said older people can enjoy it as well as the levels can get very difficult. A beginner's level is present to teach players how to type, while advanced courses are meant for experienced players. Quiz Courses test the player's Pokémon knowledge.

Wild Pokémon will appear, and the player must correctly type their name to catch them. Multipliers are available if Pokémon names are typed fast enough. At the end of several stages, a boss Pokémon may appear; the bosses are Reshiram, Zekrom, Cobalion, Serperior, Ho-Oh, Lugia, Terrakion, Virizion, Zoroark, Kyogre, Celebi, and Groudon. There are also some lesser bosses which are obtained by typing letters that appear on coins throughout the course. These include Lapras, Beheeyem and Emboar. There are 63 courses, one for each key on the keyboard (excluding Enter). There are 403 Pokémon available in the game. Each course has its own features and targets required to complete them, as well as three different requirements for bronze, sliver and gold medals such as achieving certain point scores, capturing certain Pokémon, getting combos and not making any typographical errors.

In the Japanese version, the player types Pokémon's names in rōmaji; the game uses Nihon-shiki romanizations, not the trademarked ones, because of the way Japanese keyboards work; for example, 'Tirati-no' is used instead of Chillaccino.

Story

A new rookie typist, controlled by the player, meets Paige Down of the Elite Typists' Club, and takes on the role of the newest member of the Elite Typists' Club, which investigates where Pokémon inhabit by typing their names on a keyboard to capture them in a Typing Ball, a special type of Poké Ball. With the player's help, the Elite Typists' Club manages to reach new areas they have never been before, and together with Key and her friend Professor Quentin Werty, they investigate 403 different kinds of Pokémon, including, eventually, Reshiram and Zekrom, to test their typing skills and gather medals to become Master Typists.
