Meet your match in
The Street Race
This course may be straight, but it's far from easy! Maximize the traction of your racing ball, collecting your character's letters for double speed as you race to the finish line.
- The Street Race: Race Pokémon riding in giant Poké Balls around the straight track and collect dominoes with letters in the player's name for boosts which can be used at any time.
- Dirt Track Insanity: A more difficult version of Street Race in which players must be careful not to spin out from hitting pictures of opponents. In Adventure Mode, players can use boosts earned in Charizard's Crossword Challenge.
- Grand Prix: A yet more difficult version of the street race where very good turning is needed to win. Players collect the letters of their name for instant boosts of speed. In Adventure Mode, they can use Spark Showers, which spin out any racers directly behind them.
- Aqua Mania: A track in which players collect green shapes for boosts, and red shapes make them spin out. The players go significantly faster if they earned Furret Speed from Mudkip's Word Finder, and even faster if they earned Super Furret Speed.
- Snow Insanity: A downhill track where the player can collect numbers in order to get boosts. If the player misses one number, they can't use any more to get boosts. In Adventure Mode, they can use Nitro Nuts earned in Skitty's Block Out. The player can shoot them to spin out racers.
- The Marathon: The final race is a mix of all the past fields without any powerups. However, in Adventure Mode the player can still use Water Balloons earned in Squirtle's Door Dilemma, which shoot behind them and leave a puddle of water, spinning out anybody who touches it.
Twenty racers are available as player characters.
- Charizard's Crossword Challenge: A Pokémon-themed crossword puzzle which earns the player boosts for Dirt Track Insanity depending on how many hints they had left. The maximum allowed is four.
- Bulbasaur's Domino Dash: A game in which players connect dominoes inside a certain shape. Depending on how many hints they have left, they will earn Spark Showers to use in the Grand Prix course. The maximum allowed is three.
- Mudkip's Word Finder: A Pokémon word search game. If the player finds all the words, they earn Furret Speed for Aqua Mania, and if they find the "extra word", they earn Super Furret Speed in the Aqua Mania course.
- Skitty's Block Out Game: A game somewhat like Tetris featuring Pokémon in place of blocks, and blocks of one. The player must line them up in the way it says. If they win, they earn six Nitro Nuts to use on the Snow Insanity course.

- Rayquaza is misspelled as "Rayquayza" in the list of player characters available for the race games.
- However, this typo does not affect the minigames that require the player to write names of Pokémon species: Charizard's Crossword Challenge and Mudkip's Word Finder. These minigames use a separate list of Pokémon names, which do not include Rayquaza at all, or any other Pokémon without evolutions or pre-evolutions.
- This game contains a leftover frame with coordinates for where each button on the title screen is supposed to be.
