Ultimately, Pokémon Picross is a very satisfying experience, but it can come at a great cost. The introduction of missions, skills, and achievements greatly expands upon the base of number puzzles, but the stingy free-to-play aspects do hold it back from its full potential. If you're looking for a game that you can play casually without paying, look elsewhere. If you're willing to pay up, this is the best entry in the Picross e sub-series yet.
Pokémon Picross is a solid take on Jupiter’s puzzle series if you can look past the free-to-start aspects. Those that like both Picross and Pokémon can definitely get a lot of enjoyment from the 600 puzzles that populate the game. Those that choose to pay will likely have more fun chiselling through due to the free-to-start mechanics essentially being removed, but those that don’t are in for a grind which isn’t what most will want in a game. Despite that, it’s still solid Picross, and while it’s worse value for money than the Picross e games, you’re bound to find enjoyment here.
Picross with Pokémon. That's all this needed to be, and that's what this appears to be at a glance, but further inspection reveals much more. The murals provide long-term motivation. The missions provide short-term reward. The mega rows encourage nonstandard nonogram logic over rote processes. Aside from the strangely disguised pricing scheme, the new additions to Pokémon Picross exceed expectations.
