Learn how to draw your favorite Pocket Monsters in the cutest of ways now that Pokemon Art Academy has a launch date for its North American release on Nintendo 3DS -- yes, that includes Muk.

Pokemon Art Academy will let young, aspiring artists practice drawing their favorite Pokemon in a series of lessons under Professor Andy in this instructional Nintendo 3DS game. The game will start with basic shapes, moving on to coloring and advanced techniques. By the time you reach blending and shading, you will be able to create some impressive portraits using markers, pastels, paints and colored pencils. Eventually, you can unlock special sessions where you draw some Mega-Evolved Pokemon.

Pokemon Art Academy will launch on Oct. 24 in retail stores and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS.
