The picture above shows the notes associated with each key on the piano keyboard.
You can see that the keyboard is broken down into several parts that are identical. The black keys, which alternate between groups of two keys and groups of three, allow us to find our way around the keyboard and to know which part we are on.

Practice knowing the notes associated with each key by heart. Then you can follow the tutorial in this article dedicated to learning the Pokemon theme song on the piano.
Let’s start by identifying the first note to play with the right hand.
Press the A key to start the song with the right hand:
