'''Pokémon Puzzle Challenge''' (Japanese: '''ポケモンでパネポン''' ''Pokémon de Panepon'') is a spin-off puzzle game for the [[Game Boy Color]]. It is based on {{smw|Tetris Attack}}, and thus plays like [[Pokémon Puzzle League]] for the [[Nintendo 64]]. In Challenge Mode, the starting Pokémon are Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile. Players battle the Johto Gyms by beating them at puzzle games, and can obtain other Pokémon, such as Marill and Pichu. Sometimes Eggs can be hatched, allowing players to use more Pokémon. Players may also fight friends using the multiplayer modes. Additionally, the game includes a "Puzzle" mode in which players attempt to use combos to clear all the blocks onscreen within a certain number of moves.

Pokémon Puzzle Challenge (Japanese: ポケモンでパネポン Pokémon de Panepon) is a spin-off puzzle game for the Game Boy Color. It is based on Tetris Attack, and thus plays like Pokémon Puzzle League for the Nintendo 64. In Challenge Mode, the starting Pokémon are Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile. Players battle the Johto Gyms by beating them at puzzle games, and can obtain other Pokémon, such as Marill and Pichu. Sometimes Eggs can be hatched, allowing players to use more Pokémon. Players may also fight friends using the multiplayer modes. Additionally, the game includes a "Puzzle" mode in which players attempt to use combos to clear all the blocks onscreen within a certain number of moves.

Single Player Mode

Single Player Mode features:

Marathon: An endless game. The objective of the game is to obtain the highest possible score before the screen becomes completely filled with blocks. Easy uses five kinds of basic tiles, but Normal and Hard add the dark blue triangle piece found in all games but Planet Puzzle League.

Challenge: In Challenge mode, the player assumes the role of Ethan and travels around, battling all of the Johto Gym Leaders. Rather than show an opponent on screen, the Leader's Pokémon has a health bar and occasionally sends random garbage. Combos, chains, and Surprise (!) blocks wear away at the opponent's health bar. On Easy mode, the last opponent is Clair; on Normal, it is Karen; on Hard mode, the final opponent is Lance.

Time Zone: Try to get a high score in only two minutes. Get chains and combos for max points.

Line Clear: Clear all stages. There are 6 rounds, each with 5 stages (including a Bonus Stage). After beating all 30 stages, a battle awaits. This mode also features Johto Gym Leaders.

Puzzles: Divided in rounds and stages, the goal is to clear the block setup in a limited amount of moves (usually 1 to 5).

Garbage: Same as Marathon, with two differences: Most obviously, Garbage Blocks of varying sizes fall down randomly from the top. The number and type of Garbage Blocks depends on the Garbage Level (which constantly rises). Also, the scroll speed never changes, probably because the Garbage Blocks present enough of a challenge to the player.

Unlockables

Like others in the Puzzle League series, Pokémon Puzzle Challenge has several unlockable extras revealed as the player accomplishes tasks in the game.

  • Super Hard is added to Challenge mode via a special button combination revealed at the completion of Hard mode.
  • Intense is added to Challenge mode via a special button combination revealed at the completion of Super Hard mode.
  • Blistering Speed may be used in Marathon via a special button combination.
  • Portraits of the eight Gym Leaders of Johto are unlocked after completing their corresponding stages in Puzzle mode.
  • Bellossom, Pikachu, Sentret, Togepi, Marill, and Pichu are unlocked from within Challenge mode by completing certain tasks while playing. If a new task is completed, the player will be challenged by a Trainer who uses one of these special Pokémon. Beat them to unlock their Pokémon for use at any time.
  • Igglybuff, Elekid, Cleffa, and Magby are only usable in Marathon mode. They begin as Eggs who cannot be used, but they "hatch" and become playable over time.
