Develon is encountered by Bub on his quest at MT. SPIRAL. It can be reached by telling Marino "No I Can't" when he asks if you can swim, or taking the RIGHT PATH at HERO LAND after defeating Super Sonic Blastman. He is out to defeat Bub, and cares nothing for Bub's quest or what Dreg has done.

Puzzle Bobble Millennium (AKA Bust-A-Move Millennium) is an anniversary game of sorts celebrating all previous Puzzle Bobble titles. It was released exclusively for the Nintendo Game Boy Color, which was an unusual but unique decision and featured what is probably the best story mode of any Puzzle Bobble game to date and a large cast of characters from previous games.
As it's title suggests, it was released in 2000 (the new Millennium) and follows the core mechanics established by Puzzle Bobble 4.

Bub is the hero of the main story and he embarks on a quest to bring back the magical GOLDEN BUBBLE that has been stolen by Dreg.
Bust-a-Move Millennium has a huge cast of characters when compared to previous games in the series. They are all characters from previous games in the series and some get to meet for the very first (and last!) time in this game. A lot of these characters are hidden at first, and must be unlocked by taking certain paths in the story mode. Let's take a look at who is here.
