It’s Pokémon, and it’s Picross. How could you mess that up? By making it free-to-play and adding in premium currencies and stamina bars. Technically you could complete Pokémon Picross without spending money, but if you don’t spend thirty dollars to get enough Picrites to unlock everything you need, you’ll be stuck in an endless grinding loop. Even with the money investment, you can still get stuck without the Pokémon you need to progress. Why can’t this be a simple Picross title with Pokémon themed puzzles to figure out? People would have paid for that without the F2P nonsense.
