    Headstrong Games did a good job with New Art Academy and Pokémon Art Academy follows the same direction, by providing an authentic course of visual education with the appeal of Pokémon creatures.

    Pokémon Art Academy is an enjoyable, interactive experience that doesn't skimp on the content and complexity from the main Art Academy series.

    Pokémon Art Academy is a well presented software that manages to teach the players about drawing within a Pokémon-esque context, providing a vital and compelling framework for would-be artists to learn some skills while exploring one of Nintendo's biggest series. Sharing one's creations is also a high point here, even though the overall experience can be rather short and a 3DS screen does not go as far as a real canvas.

    Pokémon Art Academy is a surprisingly well done spin-off which does not merely exploits Pikachu & co. but actually manages to give solid advices and interesting fun facts about drawing and pokémon as well. Kids will love it.
  5. Though the game varies from too restrictive to too free, it's an excellent little sandbox for learning to draw your favourite Pokémon.

    As an Art Academy game, it has a very interesting didactic value, but the Pokémon addition makes it perfect for a different audience.

    A good learning method for drawing. With Pokémon. So an excellent method for kids.
