How to Play

  • Students play this game individually.

  • 3 different words or sentences appear on the slide, each attached to a different Pokémon.

  • Students write the word or sentence of the Pokémon they think will come out of the Poké Ball on the next slide.

  • Once students are finished writing, press the spacebar to go to the next slide.

  • Press the spacebar again to open the Poké Ball and reveal the winning Pokémon and the word/sentence.

  • Students who guessed correctly get 1 point and the student with the most points at the end of the game is the winner!


  • This game can be played in pairs or groups as well. I usually give each pair/group a mini whiteboard to write their answers on. They can keep track of their own points on their whiteboard too.
