I searched a little on GameFAQs for Pawapurokun Pocket, then just Pawa and still couldn't come up with this game. Then I thought of some other things "pawapurokun" could be since it's just the pronunciation of kana and came up with pawa trying to say "power". I searched Power Pocket on GameFAQs and I seem to have found this series. Wikipedia seems to list it as the Power Pro Kun Pocket series. None of them seem to have been released outside of Asia.

Would it be more appropriate to put Power Pro-kun Pocket in the represented products field, or does "Pawapurokun" come from somewhere official? It looks like any other romaji trying to represent English words, but Wikipedia mentions it as the "Pawapuro" series sometimes so I'm wondering if this is some official thing.

Not sure about "power", but "puro" is definitely "pro":

"Pawapuro" (パワプロ) is an abbreviation of the main series title, "Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu" (実況パワフルプロ野球). It should probably be "Power Pro," since it's based on English words, but Konami has a tendency to romanize the titles straight from the sounds: http://www.konami.jp/pawa/2010/





I poked around a bit on Konami's site and couldn't find any English rendition of パワプロクン as "Pawapurokun," but the Japanese Wikipedia article for the series gives it, so it wouldn't surprise me if it's there somewhere.

Yodobashi credits the five composers I've linked to this album collectively for every single piece. Seems like this may be incomplete, though, as apparently none of the five worked on Power Pro Kun Pocket 1 or 3. The composition credits for Power Pro albums tend to be kind of terrible!
