In Pokémon Playhouse, your child can interact with all kinds of cute Pokémon as they explore various locations, including a tower, lounge, and outdoor playground. Every location within Pokémon Playhouse features activities created just for younger Pokémon fans, such as taking care of Pokémon in the Pokémon Grooming activity, or identifying Pokémon in the night sky in the Search the Stars activity.
To accompany the unique look of the Pokémon in Pokémon Playhouse, your child can watch them at play in new picture stories. Head to the Playroom to listen to a story and see the adorable Pokémon go on exciting new adventures!
At the beginning of their time in the Pokémon Playhouse, your child will be given a Pokémon Egg to keep track of. As your child explores the Pokémon Playhouse and completes activities, the Pokémon Egg will begin to hatch, and eventually reveal a new Pokémon!
Designed for children ages 3–5, no reading or math skills are necessary to complete activities. A friendly human character will host and narrate all the activities so your child can enjoy every aspect of the Pokémon Playhouse regardless of their learning level.

Great app for toddlers!
What happens when you take education for toddlers, Pokémon, and mini games? This is the result. What is so great about this app is that it takes Pokemon, and target it to preschoolers. You can read stories, make songs using Pokemon sounds, put these creatures in the playground, and much more, and earn more Pokemon for it. However, here are some reccomendations:
1: Add more Pokemon. When your child is done collecting all the Pokémon, eventually they'll get bored and stop playing. More cute Pokemon to the rescue! You can add more Pokemon from the Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, and Kalos regions by putting in Pokémon like Tailow, Skitty, the Azurill line, Gible, Tyrunt, Amaura, Fletchling, Dedenne, Emolga, Zorua, and Larvesta. That way there are more adorable Pokemon to take care of and play with!
2: Simplify. This is where it really hurts. Alolan Sandshrew is too complicated for preschoolers. Just call it "Icy Sandshrew". Same wth Vulpix, and for Raichu, "Surfing Raichu" Zygarde Core... Let's just call that Pokemon "Squishy Zygarde" because of Bonnie in the Pokémon XYZ anime. And don't "something" the berries, Just call the berries by their color. For example, Yellow Berry and Green Berry for Sitrus Berry and Lum Berry respectively, and the colors may help educate chidren more! Thanks for reading!
My Toddlers LOVE It!
My daughters are 3 and 5. I downloaded this app for them because they know and love Pikachu and I thought it would be a fun treat for them. My daughters weren't too sure of it when they started, but the next day, they were asking for their "Pokémon Game!" Over the past few days, my daughters have gotten enthusiastic about their 15 minutes of game time, with the favorite activities being puzzles and grooming for my 3 year old and stories for my 2 year old. And as a Pokémon fan myself, it's nice to hear my three year old cry out "mommy, i got a (Pokémon)! Yay, it's so cute!!" Cute and inviting art style with a simple, toddler friendly interface makes it easy for little ones to figure out how and where to get to other games, while hatching eggs keeps it novel to them. Growing complexity keeps the game challenging and activities help enrich learning (learning to look closely, reading, matching, identifying information, patterns) all in all, a FUN game for smaller kids that even parents can feel good about!
Pros: learning, cute, simple
Cons: my kids keep taking my phone
Too Cute; Great For Young Pokémon Fans!
... Or ones like me, who are young at heart after 20 years of Pokémon adventures.
This is the kind of Pokémon content that I wish existed when I was a child. Containing Pokémon from nearly every generation, it gives young fans a glimpse of the main game mechanics (Pokémon Refresh/Amie, Egg Hatching, and a simplistic "Pokédex") while adding in new interactive features, like storybooks and games. Older children may not be entertained for long, but there are a fair number of Pokémon to collect and play with, and a handful of mini-games. I can also see this app being valuable to kids who are at an early reading age, as the names of the Pokémon are enunciated very clearly and often-- good for memorization and pronunciation skills.
And to any parent who may read this: please take the time to engage your child as they enjoy Pokémon. My mother used it as an incentive to make learning more fun back in the 90s, and the time and enthusiasm that she invested into my interests imparted life-lessons and memories that I'll never forget.
