Special thanks to shinjirarenai for providing this lovely map that offers so much potential
Start by going over the city location vocabulary in the powerpoint and then start clicking. The goal is to catch Pikachu as he runs away from you around the city. As you go, have the students tell you which direction to go (Turn left, Turn right, He is by the ________, go straight, etc....)
Once you finish the game, hand out blank worksheets and have them fill them out with city vocab. The location doesn't matter, so don't worry if it doesn't match your map. You can also hand out tiny pikachus that are attached to the very back of the powerpoint, or have them use things from their pencil case if you hate cutting stuff out.
After they finish, have them pair up and take turns putting the pikachu in different spots and have them practice their directions starting at the black spot.
