Pokémon Picross (Japanese: ポケモンピクロス Pokémon Picross), not to be confused with the 3DS game with the same name, was a Game Boy Color game slated for release in 1999, with snapshots of the game published in several video game magazines, but was ultimately scrapped.

A near-final prototype dump of the game was surfaced online on September 10, 2020, as part of a major leak of Game Boy / Game Boy Color prototypes, which was dubbed "Nintendo Gigaleak 3" by the fans.

Overview[]

The game's UI is seemingly based on Picross 2, as the games have similarities such as map-based level select screen and multi-piece puzzles. As a Gen I spinoff game, the game features sprites of all 151 Pokémon available in Pokémon Red/Green/Blue. The game was planned to be compatible with Game Boy Printer, with the sprites being printable by being viewed on the in-game Pokédex.

The main "Pokémon Picross" game mode is divided into 10 levels, each one featuring 15 puzzles, though the last puzzle in each stage is initially locked. Once 8 puzzles are completed in a single level, the next level will be unlocked. Puzzles are marked with a Poké Ball upon completion; if they are completed within a set par time limit, they are instead marked with a Great Ball. If 8 of the level's puzzles are completed within the par time, the 15th puzzle is unlocked. A final puzzle is unlocked by completing all 150 puzzles.

An "Easy Picross" mode with 15 simpler puzzles is available from the start. A new "Safari Picross" mode is unlocked after completing level 10. Safari Picross features 51 additional puzzles depicting more elaborate artwork, but no longer notifies the player when they mark an incorrect space.

Pikachu is the the player's only Pokémon at the start of the game. Each time the player completes an odd-numbered level, they will catch a new pokemon, including Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Clefairy, and Jigglypuff. The player can switch their active Pokémon in the BGM option on the pause menu, which changes the border color and background music during gameplay.

Issues[]

  • One of the improvements for this game was that the cells were showing the detailed sprite inside, but due to the game being unfinished, the color difference between the selected and unselected cells would be visible even after solving the puzzle, resulting in a glitched-like grid.
  • Another bug of the game appears in the multi-piece puzzles. The timer - which is supposed to start from zero - counts down a certain period of time (70 minutes in 20×20 and 90 minutes in 30×30). Once the puzzle piece is solved, the timer switches to ascending form, showing the time spent.
