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.


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.

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, and Groudon. There are less than 60 courses. 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 medals such as achieving certain point scores, capturing certain Pokémon 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, due to the nature of the game; for example, "Tirati-no" is used instead of Chillaccino.


A new rookie typist, who is the player, meets Paige Down of the Elite Typists' Club, who investigate where Pokémon live by typing their names on a keyboard. With the player's help, the Elite Typists' Club manages to reach new areas they have never been to before, and together with Key and her friend Quentin Werty, they investigate 403 Pokémon, including, eventually, Reshiram and Zekrom, and gather medals to become Master Typists.
