The game provides you with 40 lessons over three courses (Novice, Apprentice and Graduate) that will teach you how to paint, sketch and draw different Pokemon characters. Suprisingly there is a story to the game, which has you enrolled in the Pokemon Art Academy in order to create drawings for Pokemon cards. At the end of each lesson you can see your drawing on a mock up Pokemon card, which I thought was very cool and made me want to continue drawing. Also, what you learn from the lessons can be transferred on to paper, so it’s a good way to help your children (and adults!) unlock potential they never knew they had.
Pokemon Art Academy is a game that is definitely going to appeal to any Pokemon fans out there. My two girls, who are 6 & 4, found it easy to draw their favourite characters using the easy templates and simple undo button if they weren’t too happy. In comparison to other new games this won’t break your wallet and it provides hours of enjoyment, with something tangible at the end to take away from the experience.
