Well I have a weakness when it comes to anything Pokemon and I haven't played Picross since Picross DS which was like 8 years ago, so this will be a fresh new take for me. It's interesting it took the free to start way like Pokemon Rumble World, I wonder if this will be the norm for most Pokemon spin-off games.

A dying animal struggles, thrashes and howls in protest as its life torn from it. To see this in action, watch Animal Planet. The same thing happens when a video game is or isn't released. To see this in action, stay here.

I'm really curious as to how they'll progress with the game after a while, though... Aren't you just basically trying to figure out Pokémon portraits?

What I'm really trying to say is: will there be Pokémon battles of some sort? -looks at Trozei, Battle Trozei, and Shuffle-

Apparently you can use Pokemon to reveal some areas of the puzzle. Which means the puzzles will probably be on the harder side.

I'm aware of using Pokémon to reveal parts of the puzzle, but I really hope that's not the only use of Pokémon you already have. Otherwise, the game is pretty much done once you get all 720 of them (unless they take Shuffle's route and release the other forms/Formes as separate Pokémon)...

Really hoping there will be events to keep the game alive to some extent.

Then again, 720 is probably enough picross for a decade....

I hope they don't go the Shuffle route of limited-time events, because picross is not like match-3, it takes time and must be relaxing.

Include all the forms, but don't limit the total time we have to complete them.

They should not implement too much exotic options to the Picross game, if it simplifies the game too much.
And I hope there will be a sense of progression in the "difficulty" like in the old Picross (only played the GB and SFC ones).

Oh well, picross is not an easy game. They can add all the options they want.

People can choose if they want to use them or not.

Gamexplain added a video with the first 30 minutes of the game. Professor Tetra serves as the picross tutorial, and she guides you through the first few levels of the game.

The title screen music is a pretty nice remix of some classic Pokemon music.

I was just about to post that, lol. Game looks pretty chill (coming from someone who, again, has never played Picross before). Kinda reminds me of Sudoku.

Btw, you might wanna put a spoiler warning @Morpheel. One of my Skype friends complained about that, saying: "The puzzles themselves are spoilers. If you know what's inside, there's no puzzle."

Eh. It's just the five tutorials and the first real puzzle.

Anyhow, I think the fact that it's a gameplay video of a puzzle game makes it implicit that it will include spoilers of said puzzles.

It doesn't play automatically or anything, so hidding it behind a spoiler tag or warning would be a bit overkill.

Fair enough.

I just wonder if certain Skills will be OP to the point where the timer for them ends up being just as bad as the Balloons in Pokémon Rumble World...

Chill music is pretty chill.

Was Mariobro4. No, I'm not taking off my backpack...it's important.

@Rikaria: about the skills, I noticed the two used in the video are actually just repurposed options from Picross E.

From what I could see, it seems there's actually a small amount of unique skills. I guess stronger Pokemon might have shorter cool down timers?

Err... that wouldn't make sense @ the cooldown part...

I watched 5 minutes of the GameXplain video but got bored due to the slow introduction and slow puzzle solving. I can solve 5x5 puzzles pretty much by just looking at the puzzle for few seconds so it just felt like an eternity before he solved the first puzzle. I get that he was reading the tutorial and maybe wanted to take it a bit slow but still.

Does anyone know if there are any restrictions on how long you can play at a time and how many puzzles are included?

According to a previous announcement, there's supposedly more than 300 stages. I wouldn't be surprised if they added more via updates just like Pokémon Shuffle, though. Anyway, to answer your restriction question, this is what Serebii said (I cleaned up their text a bit):

-The game gives you the Energy Gauge at Area 1's second stage. Each move you make costs you an Energy and each move takes 1 minute to recover your Energy. You can recover it for 10 Picrites ahead of time as well. You can also increase it 5 levels. Level 2 costs 50 Picrites, Level 3 costs 100 Picrites.

-When you have purchased all 5,000 Picrites, you can then redeem free Picrites from time to time in batches of 1000. If you max out the Energy Gauge's level by spending your Picrites, you then remove the free to play aspect. You no longer have to worry about the energy gauge as it is infinite.

Huh so it sounds like it can be 'bought". I wonder what's the final (minimum) price.
