Like other spin-off titles, Pokémon Picross allows you to use Pokémon you have captured in order to aid you in the completion of a puzzle. These Pokémon often have a variety of skills which can help you make a start with a puzzle or help you if you have got stuck. This section will detail all 12 of the special skills Pokémon can have, and what they do.
Each Pokémon's skill is determined based on its type with some skills being more powerful on some Pokémon than the other. For example, a Poochyena's ability will be less powerful than on Darkrai.
The Pokémon, after using the skills, will have to recharge before they can be used again to help.
