Pokemon Smile Will Make Kids Brush Their Teeth

A new mobile app is joining the family of Pokemon spin-offs on phones, and like the previously announced Pokemon Sleep, this one is aimed at improving your lifestyle. Pokemon Smile, which is now available on Android and iOS, is an app for kids that intends to improve their dental hygiene habits.

Pokemon Smile uses your phone’s camera to observe your brushing skills, challenging you–or your child, more likely–to defeat cavity-causing bacteria and then catch Pokemon. There are over 100 Pokemon to collect in the game, and there’s also AR headwear you can collect and equip while brushing your teeth.
