Pokémon Picross (found build of unfinished Game Boy Color puzzle game; 1999)
In the 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 Super Nintendo 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 from the same developers was eventually released for the Nintendo 3DS.
In September 2020, a build of the game was leaked on 4chan as part of the "Nintendo Gigaleak 3." On January 31st, 2021, Romhacking.net user "LeonarthCG" uploaded a translation hack to Pokémon Picross that translates the game into English.
