Pokémon Picross is an puzzle game for the Game Boy.
This is a translation for the build of the unreleased Pokémon Picross for the Game Boy and Game Boy Color that surfaced on the internet on September 2020.
The patch is almost complete, the entire story, the titlescreen, the tutorials, the menus and the puzzle names are all done, even the Game Boy Printer error messages have been translated. The exceptions are the Pokédex and Safari Album, which remain in Japanese. It introduces no gameplay changes.
The game is easy to navigate and play even with no translation, as long as the player is already familiar with nonogram rules.
The translation work was done through a combination of online tools and consultations and as such it might not be very accurate.

User Review Information
The Game We Were DeniedReviewed By: Ziko on 29 Sep 2020
This translation does exactly what’d I expect. Quality-wise, it’s almost like a full blown localization and in my time using this patch, I’ve noticed no errors and the text is easy to read too. I really do enjoy the title being redone as big blue Katakana wasn’t easy on the eyes and clashes with the orange pixel background.
I know that the dex entries and safari haven’t been touched but personally I really don’t care much for the safari mode and I think perhaps the dex entries can be translated at some point but it’s unnecessary as much of them probably are recycled from the Gen 1 games anyway and they would feel redundant. I would definitely recommend this patch knowing eventually the thing will most likely be updated.
Version 1.0 Recommended - Yes
