Play around with it on CodePen

Here are the general steps to create your own Pokemon Speak

1. Listen to Keyboard Events

Vue doesn't support global key press (at least I couldn't figure it out), so we need to addEventListener to the window.

new Vue({ 
  created () {
    window.addEventListener('keydown', this.selectPokemon)

2. Responding to Keyboard Events

methods: {
  selectPokemon(e) {
    // Create an array of all your key codes
    //  ie. [80, 67, 83]
    const keys = => pokemon.code);
    // Retrieve the pressed key code 
    //  ie. 80 is for key "p"
    const code = e.keyCode;
    // Loop through your pokemon array and get the selected pokemon
    const selectedPokemon = this.pokemons.find(pokemon => pokemon.code === code)

    // Update the property of the selected pokemon
    selectedPokemon.selected = true;

3. Play Sound

methods: {
  selectPokemon(e) {
    // Pass in the path of your sound file
  playSound(sound) {
    // Create the audio
    var audio = new Audio(sound);
    // Play the audio;
