Pokémon Art Academy hits Nintendo 3DS Oct. 24

Pokémon Art Academy, a game that teaches players how to draw Pokémon, launches for Nintendo 3DS Oct. 24, Nintendo announced today.

Pokémon Art Academy combines the instructional elements of the Art Academy series with creatures from the Pokémon franchise. The game will include 40 lessons on how to illustrate Pokémon such as Pikachu, Torchic, Fennekin and Charizard. Players can also use the game's Free Paint and Quick Sketch modes to draw Pokémon however they choose and share their creations via Miiverse galleries.

"Drawing their way toward graduation — from the art basics of simple shapes and coloring, to exciting advanced techniques of shading and blending — players will wield a variety of tools, including markers, colored pencils, pastels and paints to illustrate popular Pokémon from all known regions," the game's description reads. "As they advance, players can unlock special lessons featuring Mega-Evolved Pokémon."

In May, Nintendo revealed that Pokémon Art Academy would arrive in the fall. The game was released in Japan in June. For more Pokémon, check out our hub.
