In spring of 1999, a new Pokémon-themed Picross game for the Game Boy Color, simply titled Pokémon Picross, was announced and widely advertised in Japanese magazines. It was cancelled for unknown reasons, however.

Notably, on April 1st 1999, a Japan-only downloadable SNES game (Picross NP Vol. 1) was released and featured twelve Pokémon puzzles. It is largely assumed that Pokémon Picross was either reworked into Picross NP Vol. 1, or whatever had been finished of the game was implemented into it. Additionally, a Pokémon-themed Picross game was eventually released for the 3DS.

It should be worth mentioning of the new 3DS Pokemon Picross game might be a revival of the old Pokemon Picross concept.

The screenshot does look really similar to the 3DS version. It has similar fonts

The game does exist. Its Pokemon Picross on the 3DS. According to rhe developers "The title's developer, Jupiter Corporation, had originally planned to release a game called Pokémon Picross on the Game Boy and Game Boy Color 16 years earlier, previews of which appeared in Japanese gaming magazines in Spring 1999, which was ultimately cancelled."
