Pokémon: Crayon Kids (Japanese: ポケットモンスターくれよんキッズ) is a Japanese art training game published by Banpresto and available on an arcade system developed by Sega. It is based on the Johto League arc from the original series of the Pokémon anime, and was released in July 2001.


The machine is relatively short and wide, and is adorned with various Pokémon and bright colors. It features a 29-inch touch-sensitive screen and an affixed stylus pen. The stylus is used for navigation and for selecting the various tools used when engaging in the actual game.


After inserting ¥100, players can select which illustration they want to draw from a number of options. Following this, players can decide the course they would like to undertake, which have varying degrees of difficulty. The table below details the differences between each of the courses, from left to right as they appear on the selection screen:

Master Course
The player is free to use all tools available, and the machine does not assist them when drawing.

Once the player has selected a course, they can begin drawing their image. The layout of the drawing space includes a large area with the outline of the selected image, with a smaller image of the intended final product in the top left. To the right of these are the various color options available to the player as well as an eraser. To the right of the drawing space are the pen styles, which comprise three different line weights. All of these options can be selected by using the stylus.

Once the player has completed their image, the machine prints the image onto Pokémon: Crayon Kids A4 stock, decorated with numerous Pokémon and with space for the player to write their name and the date, should they wish.
