Pokémon Puzzle League Has Secret Love Messages | Screen Rant

Pokémon Puzzle League has secret declarations of love that are hidden in the game, which can only be accessed by digging through the files. Pokémon Puzzle League was originally meant to be Panel de Pon 64, before being reworked into a Pokémon title and released for the Nintendo 64 in the year 2000. The game is now available on Nintendo Switch as part of the Expansion Pack for Nintendo Switch Online.

The ability to emulate old games also gave fans the chance to go digging through their files, in order to find secrets left by the developers that were never meant to be found by players. The Pokémon series is no exception to this, with some of the most famous examples involving a cut Professor Oak battle in Pokémon Red and Blue, a cut memory minigame in Pokémon Gold and Silver, and a cut battle with Arceus in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. The cut Arceus battle returned in Pokémon BDSP, so modern fans at least had a chance to face the godlike Pokémon in battle.

Pokémon Puzzle League might not have any cut Pokémon battles or missing minigames, but it does have some hidden secrets that can be found. The Cutting Room Floor is a website that catalogs all of the cut content that has been discovered in video games over the years, including many entries in the Pokémon franchise. Pokémon Puzzle League has secrets that have nothing to do with Pokémon, but with the people who made the game.

In the files of Pokémon Puzzle League, there are two hidden voice clips. The first comes from an unknown developer, who declares their love for a person named "Emi-chan" in Japanese, and the second is from an English-speaking developer, who says that they love someone named "Liz". The identity of these two developers is unclear and these sound files can't be found without a lot of digging, so it's unclear why they were put in the game.

Pokémon Puzzle League is fondly remembered by many people who played it, especially as it featured characters from the Pokémon anime, at a time when the franchise was going through its first big wave of popularity. The people who were Pokémon fans at the time were likely kids when Pokémon Puzzle League came out and remember it from a child's perspective. For other people who worked on the game, Pokémon Puzzle League represented some romantic time in their life, and it begs the question of who these developers were, who they were declaring their love for, and if things worked out for them in the end.
