A great and fun way to practice and test your skills.

This was a fun treat and a great way to hammer in the skills I'd been learning--and it taught me a few new ones I didn't know. It could be tricky at parts, but overall, it was a great experience. - Aaron

Beginner-friendly and very engaging

Very engaging because I'm familiar with pokemon. When they introduce features such as patterning or scaling, I am able to connect the ideas as to why the features are used. Good job! - Ian
