Default Pokémon Picross

Does anyone here play Pokémon Picross? It's yet another "free to play" game, just like Pokémon Shuffle and the Pokémon Rumble World eShop version. Though, progressing in the game is much slower than in the other two if you do not decide to use any money.

It's a game in the Picross style, a puzzle like game where you need to uncover pictures by filling out certain parts of a board (10x10, 15x15 or 20x15) consisting of boxes. How many boxes in each row or column can be filled out is indicated by numbers surrounding the board. Each board shows a Pokémon which is captured when the puzzle is completed. Pokémon have special abilities (depending on their type) which can help you with completing puzzles, correcting mistakes or slowing down/stopping the time running when you take them with you. It's better to understand the game when you play it yourself though. The game's currency is Picrites which can be received by doing missions, daily training, completing achievements and of course also buying them. Picrites have alot of use, for example: unlocking new areas, unlocking the alternate mode, unlocking mega evolutions, buying additional slots for your Pokémon team, increasing the total energy gauge or refilling it more quickly.

I have been playing it for a while and, like already said, progress is slow. Collecting Picrites takes a lot of time since the main source of income is daily training. The missions don't give many Picrites and can't always be completed, if you haven't got everything unlocked. Some missions require you to use specific Pokémon, some require to bring a mega evolution, others ask for a minimum amount of Pokémon (which would require you to unlock more team slots). The game is fun and I thought about spending some money. Though from what I've heard, other picross games offer more for less money so I'm unsure.

I... couldn't get into this one. Maye because picross was just never my thing. I gave up rather quickly, and don't plan to try again. :(
Kory. He/him, 21.

I got it, but I haven't even played it. xD It's just sitting on my 3DS untouched.
