Pokémon Puzzle League is a puzzle game for the Nintendo 64 console. It is based on Nintendo's Panel de Pon puzzle games, but with Pokémon likenesses. It was only available in North America starting in 2000, and in Europe in 2001, making it the first Pokémon game produced for North America first. The game was not available in Japan because it is based on the English dub of the anime; the Japanese received the game's Game Boy Color counterpart, Pokémon Puzzle Challenge. It is the only Pokémon game to be based on the Pokémon anime universe, and to feature Ash Ketchum, the anime's protagonist. The game was released on the Virtual Console on May 5, 2008, in the North America region, and on May 30, 2008, in the European region.

Problems

The timer functions improperly, running extremely fast instead of counting up normally. Luckily, on modes where it counts down, it misses zero, meaning every mode of the game is completable.

3.5-350 Windows7-64bit Core i7 2670QM GTX 560m Surprisingly well emulated, definitely playable and stable. Does push the hardware relatively hard, even compared to high end Wii games, you may be watching your processor crumble under the pressure. Usually ran between 25% - 75% depending on settings.
