Training Level 1 at Piazza: Catch it

Whenever Ash Ketchum wants to catch the Wild Pokémon, he has to hit the Pokémon by throwing the Poké Ball. Vision training is therefore very crucial! The first level of the Camp training challenges the hand-eye coordination of the Trainers. There are several holes on the board and Trainers have 3 chances to throw the Poké Ball into the holes and get the stars! If you get 5 stars or more, you will win the prize. Come and challenge your eagle vision!

Training Level 2 at Piazza: Hit it

In the Level 2 training, several Poké Balls are hung up on the board, swaying in the wind. Trainers must maintain their balance and use the most appropriate strength to throw the mini Poké Balls. If you successfully hit 3 Poké Balls, you will win the prize. This training asks for superb coordination of eyesight and hand strength at the same time! 

Training Level 3 at Piazza: Match it

According to the Pokédex, there are more than 800 Pokémon. Strong memory is definitely important for a professional Trainer! Level 3 Training requires the Trainer to collect 8 pairs of cards. Trainer turns over any 2 cards from the deck of 16 cards each time and find the matching Pokémon. This training challenges everyone's memory and concentration. You will win the prize by matching 8 Pokémon. Be careful and don't get misled by the similar Pokémon!
