Pokémon Team Turbo is a spin-off game designed for PCs, produced by Valusoft. It features six racing courses and five mini-games that can be played to earn power-ups for races. There is only one music file, and some files can easily be interchanged, such as the music and credits.

From the main menu, the player can choose to play one of six races (without powerups from mini-games), any of the five mini-games, or play an "Adventure Mode" in which the player plays the races in order, with mini-games in between to earn the player extra power-ups.


The Evolution Continues!
It's time to race and Team Turbo needs you! Challenge your Pokémon knowledge in 5 exciting games, each with multiple skill levels, to earn racing power-ups. The use these turbo boosts at just the right time on 6 tough race courses to cross the finish line first.

Squirtle's Door Dilema
Can you guess Squirtle's secrets and figure out who's hiding behind the doors? Open all the doors to win a Water Balloon to slow your opponents on the race track!

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.

Racing Courses

Dirt Track Insanity
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:
  • 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.

Player characters

Twenty racers are available as player characters.
