Also known as: Pokémon de Panepon (JP)
Question: What do you get when you combine Pokémon and Tetris Attack? Answer: One of Nintendo's attempts at increasing the marketability of a game by rebranding it.
This game has a lot of compressed graphics. Find a way to decompress them and look for more leftovers. Also, find the internal IDs for the music tracks.
Panel de Pon Leftovers
Zoomed out mugshots, some additional English text and less engrish. Interestingly, the "You" and "Opponent" labels are translated here, perhaps implying an English release of this game was planned with PdP characters fully intact, as opposed to its SNES version.
In addition to the mugshots above, there are many blocks of compressed graphics still left over from Panel de Pon, including the title screen, which reveals that the game was supposed to be called Panel de Pon GB before the Pokémon rebranding.
(All offsets are for the Japanese version.)
There are three unused music tracks in the game's data.
