Panel de Pon

There is evidence that Pokemon Puzzle Challenge was originally going to be a Game Boy version of Panel de Pon, with the fairies intact in all releases of the game. An unfinished prototype of Panel De Pon GB can be accessed by loading Puzzle Challenge on the original Game Boy and pressing the A button 24 times, and then the B button 24 times.
